Your tour will begin with pickup from your Salzburg hotel, where you’ll meet your private guide and journey by minivan to Schloss Leopoldskron. Considered one of Austria’s most dazzling examples of Rococo architecture, the castle is featured in 'The Sound of Music' and will host your late-morning breakfast, which includes eggs, cured meat, fresh fruit, yogurt and more.
After breakfast, travel to the 17th-century palace of Schloss Hellbrunn. Hear the true history of the Von Trapp family from your guide, and see the gazebo where Liesl von Trapp famously sang 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen.'
Continue to the neighborhood of Aigen, home to the real-life Von Trapp family. Take a tour inside Villa Trapp and see where the family choir rehearsed.
Venture to Salzkammergut, a region characterized by stunning mountain landscapes and alpine lakes. Visit the town of St. Gilgen to spot the Schafbergbahn, the mountain railway appearing in the film, and then continue to Mondsee. Pause to admire the town’s crown jewel, the church, which hosted the film’s famous wedding scene.
Return to your Salzburg hotel after a day of sightseeing.

As many others have noted, it's worth your money to book a private tour. Ask for Peter and you'll have the adventure of a lifetime. Peter is a wealth of knowledge, and he's also fun to be around.

This was a great experience . . . From the breakfast to the final walk in the Gardens, our guide, Wolfgang, was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed ever aspect of this tour and can't recommend it and our personal guide, enough. One sees things on this tour not seen by the big bus tours and that makes it very worthwhile. If you are a Sound of Music fan, this tour is a must!

Being that we have watched the Sound of Music more times than we can remember, we absolutely had the best time on our Sound of Music tour. The tour began with a visit to the Mirabel Gardens where Maria sang her way with I have Confidence in Me to her job as nanny for the Von Trapp family. Then we had breakfast at the residence used for the Von Trapp home. Both the home and landscaping were stunning. Although we could not visit the working Abbey, we could see it from a distance. Yet we were able to view the actual church used for the wedding. We sang songs from the movie all day long.' This was such an enjoyable way to spend a day in Salzburg. BTW - spend the extra money and take the private tour as it is much more specialized than taking a tour bus with 70 of your closest friends. Plus, the bus would not be able to access some of the streets that our guide took us down.

This was a perfect day in Salzburg! My husband and I didn't want to be herded around like cattle on the big 'Sound of Music' bus although that sounds fun if you have kids and want group sing-alongs. We were interested in some of the SOM attractions, but we are not hard-core fans of the movie. It was nice to be able to pace the day to our liking. Thomas was a wonderful tour guide. He picked us up at our hotel in a nice Mercedes in the morning and took us over to Schloss Leopoldskron for breakfast. The views and pictures there were fabulous. There were some gorgeous scenic views on our drive and Thomas was nice enough to pull over and let me take some pictures. That would never have happened on a big group tour. My favorite part was being able to get gorgeous pictures without tons of tourists in the background. TIP: If you are prone to getting car sick, you might want to take something for that problem before the trip. Thomas was a great driver, but the roads are winding.

I'm very glad we had our guide, Peter. He made sure we see everything on our bucket list. If you are a Sound of Music fan, not to be missed. We also saw some of the Lake District, so beautiful.

Driver was great and customized the tour to our interests . The only criticism is that the breakfast was a very basic buffet and half the dishes were empty by the time we got there

This tour for our family was all that we expected it to be and more. Our tour guide, Peter, was amazing! He was friendly, professional, and knowledgable. He helped make our day a memorable one. The included breakfast at Schloss Leopoldskron was delicious. The private tour does cost more, but for a once-in-a-lifetime tour with our kids and their wives, this was most definitely the way to go. It's much better to see things up close and personal...not from across the lake, for example. We highly recommend this tour!!
