Our tour was fantastic!! Our tour guide Joe was very knowledgeable about the movie, the real story and the area history. It was a very engaging tour with beautiful sites and great insights. Highly recommend it
I really wanted to love this tour as our family has seen Sound of Music multiple times. I gave it a rating of 4-5. My hubby gave it 2-3, so we settled on 3. If we were to do it again, it would be for the sake of convenience, and I would not pay 150 Euro extra for a private tour. There is nothing seen different from the public tour, and in fact, the atmosphere might be more enjoyable with a group of like-minded fans.
There is nothing on this tour which could not be seen if you have your own transportation. Hard-core fans will likely already know most of the anecdotes. Even with public transport, the only spot difficult to access would be Mondsee, which is the location of the church where the wedding scene was shot. Even that could be done by bus if you had an hour each way to spare. As it is, it's about 40 minutes from Salzburg by car or bus, and that is a LOT of time to fill. If you're chatting with a travel companion or belting out the movie score with a bus full of others, it could be fun. For us it was just awkward.
First, the guide forgot the CD and spent what seemed like an awfully long time pulled off on the side of the road trying to download it. We really were fine without it, but after she went to the trouble of borrowing it from a colleague we literally followed the group tour from stop to stop, I felt obliged to hum along and try unsuccessfully to get my family to do likewise.
While our guide was very sweet and willing to chat, she was also new to the job only 3 months. We've taken many tours, and the guide always sets the tone. Some are dynamic and engaging while others have a script at each stop and leave it to you to drive any additional conversation. This was definitely the latter. If I'm paying for a private tour, I don't want to feel like the pressure is on me to make sure everyone else, including the guide, is having a good time. If felt like an awkward first date. I was somewhat relieved and think the guide was too when she dropped us at Mirabell Palace and we could just wander and recreate silly photo ops from the movie.
In summary--a worthwhile tour if you don't have the means to travel on your own, but consider the group version to save your money to go see other sites like the trick fountains at Schloss Hellbrunn or the salt mines.
We took a 4 hr private tour. Saw the filming sites. But - on the way back from the lake area our driver fell asleep at the wheel. Had it not been for my husband holding the steering wheel and shouting at the driver, I would not be here to write this review.
I was extremely excited about this tour but the actual experience was less than I had hoped. I was eager to walk through Mirabella Gardens, learn about the filming of the movie, hear about back stories, etc. Some of the most iconic scenes from the movie all occur within the city. Instead, we spent less than 10 minutes in the downtown area of Salzburg. The majority of time was spent driving to film sites outside of the city. Although some of those sites were just a few minutes away the Von Trapp family home, or the Gazebo at Hellbrun Palace, others took as much as 40 minutes to drive to - such as the lake district or the wedding chapel. Don't get me wrong, the scenery was magnificent. The countryside surrounding Salzburg is wonderful, but the time spent traveling to/from those surrounding areas occupied a significant portion of our private 4-hour tour. I would simply caution people interested in this tour to consider where you want to spend your time...perhaps develop a plan in advance with your tour guide.
This was a fabulous tour, and Wolfgang made it so personable and special for us. There were 5 of us who were all enthralled by the places we saw. Wolfgang gave us an insight into the history of the making of the film and why the places were chosen. He shared some history of Salzburg and Austria which delighted us. He took pictures of our group at various places which were all wonderful. He was a most gracious host. It was a highlight of our trip!
Well worth the time. Our tour guide was Wolfgang and he was fantastic, giving us an insight that was well beyond the sites. Ask for Wolfgang and you won't be disappointed. We recommended him to our friends who also visited Salzburg and they were just as happy as we were.
This private tour was worth every penny! Anthony, our guide was awesome! Taking this tour was the whole reason we went to Germany and Austria. If you love Sound of Music, please take this tour. Highlight was walking down the aisle of the same church the Captain and Maria got married in. Will always remember this tour.
