Bavarian Mountains and Salt Mines
Your day tour will depart from central Salzburg, where you’ll meet up with your guide and venture by coach to the Alpenstrasse, traveling along the King's Lake River .
After a scenic drive, arrive at the salt mines and step into authentic miners' gear. As you enter, learn the history and local lore buried deep within this 450-year-old underground world. Travel down to the grottos on the same slides used by the miners and enjoy a thrilling descent! Explore the hidden terrain with a raft sail across the famous salt lake before making your way back up to the surface.
Original Sound of Music Tour
After your adventure in the salt mines, take off on your Sound of Music tour. Led by an expert guide, re-live your favorite scenes with stops at Mondsee to see the wedding church, as well as the Mirabell Gardens, the famous place where the children sang ‘Do-Re-Mi’ with Maria.
As you drive from each location, sing along to the celebrated songs from the film, including 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen,' 'Edelweiss' and the cherished classic 'The Sound of Music'. You’ll also have a chance to learn more about Salzburg’s rich history and architectural gems while you sightsee, and enjoy views of the stunning lake district.

Actually two separate tours booked together, with time for lunch in between. We went to the mines in the morning, beautiful views all the way to there. The mine was fun, but of course, it's an amusement park ride, not an adventure tour. No photos allowed but they sell you the photos they take, 10 euros for two pictures. The afternoon tour was the Sound of Music tour. Our guide was funny, very well prepared, without him, I wouldn't like the tour. It is a bus tour, you go to Mondsee, and the guide points out the sites were the movie was filmed, you stop on the lake, the to see the gazebo (no visit to Hellbrunn palace), and finally Mondsee and you either take a little sightseeing bus train shaped (at your own expenses), or you walk (ten minutes) to the church (free entrance), and then you have time to walk around, and back to Mirabell Gardens were the tour started. Both guides were very good, the program itself could be better.

The salt mines tour was very good and educational. Antonio our guide and driver was also excellent a host and made our trip super fun. The scenic drive to the mines was so beautiful and we got to see the countryside covered in the first snow of winter. Truly magical.

The salt mine tour is very interesting and informative. The tour guide very knowledgeable and I enjoyed the tour.. especially the slides in the mines! However, I must admit I purchased this tour mainly for the SOM tour. Wolfgang was my tour guide for the Sound of Music tour and I do not think it gets better than him! We saw all the sites including the Gazebo.. Wolfgang was extremely accommodating at taking pictures since I was on a solo trip. He threw on SOM songs throughout the tour as pertaining to the sites we were seeing. I could not have had a better birthday. I highly recommend this tour if you are a SOM fan.

The salt mine trip was lots of fun. The drive to the area was beautiful. The driver was very competent while driving through the mountains. As big fans of musicals we thoroughly enjoyed the bus trip to see the venues where the Sound of Music was filmed. The tour guide had many entertaining stories to share and did a wonderful job.

This was a very full day for us but very fulfilling. Having grown up singing Sound of Music tunes, this tour was very good. I would suggest that the guide update his VHS tape excerpts to a higher quality, but he was extremely knowledgeable and worked very well with the driver. The Salt Mines tour was even more fun than anticipated. Loved the slides and boat ride. Be aware that there is no place to store a purse or backpack, so leave your stuff on the bus. Tight time frame for this tour since the bus went somewhere else while we were in the mine. Then they picked us up and we HAD to be ready to go. All good.
