The sound of music tour Salzburg was excellent, crazy guide , very informative, lots of scenery photo opportunities, good insist to how movie was made, oh and singing!!@
The salt mine tour was very good, guide excellent English and very informative, slides in mine great fun ! Definitely recommend.
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.
The tour was fantastic, our guide showed us some very beautiful sites in Bavaria and was very knowledgeable and informative. The whole day was really well organised and I would highly recommend to anyone looking to see some beautiful sites in and around Salzburg
Great experience!! What a fun filled 4 hours. Highly recommend it. Would love to do it again.
Both parts were great! belongings stay on bus while in mine so plan accordingly. No photos in the mine but I bought the ones they took at the end- 5 euros- so stick some euros in your pocket if you plan to do this. Went from one activity to the next, so glad I brought some snacks. Loved singalong!
My 16 year old granddaughter and I loved the Salt Mines tour, the train into the mountain was good and the slides amazing, even though they looked challenging to say the least. Would have gone again if we could, the photos they take are only 5 Euros, which compared to anything similar in the UK is a fair price. Would have liked to have bought a guide book showing the tour, as they discourage guests taking photos, probably as lots of flashes would spoil it for other people. Would recommend this tour for such fun.
The Sound of Music tour in the afternoon was also enjoyable but more crowded. Loved seeing the locations from the film and lots of back ground stories. A lot of people on our coach were reluctant to sing along which was a shame, but our guide Ana was very good and tried to get everyone involved. Watched the film on my return home and loved seeing where we had been. Also recommended for lovers of the film.
This is essentially two tours combined which does save some money. We did the Salt Mines Tour in the morning and the Sound of Music in the afternoon. Both tours were excellent. The guides were very knowledgable. We learned quite a lot about the history of Salzburg. The Sound of Music Tour is worth doing even if you never saw the movie. Both tours give you the opportunity to visit the country side and both stop in lovely Austrian villages. The Sound of Music Tour takes you out to the lake district and to Mondsee Cathedral where the wedding scene in the movie was filmed. Be prepared however for the Sing a Long on the way back.
After reading the many reviews I believe that what separates these tours from very good and great is the quality of the tour guide. Ours was okay but someone who gets the whole bus involved with the singing etc would make it a lot more fun. It was amazing to us how The Sound of Music is an international phenomenon except in Austria we learned! We had dinner with 3 lovely Chinese women and they were able to sing all of the the songs! It was fun to learn more about the making of the movie! The second half was a drive to the mountains where Hitler had his headquarters in WWII and a visit to the saltmines and lunch in Berchetsgadens. I was very disappointed to learn that I had signed up for the wrong tour as I had meant to go to Hallstaat but we made the best of it and enjoyed the other tour as well.
Really enjoyed the salt mine tour. Interesting and entertaining! Although my husband thought the Sound of Music tour was a little cheesy, he ended up enjoying the sites and we both thought our tour guide and driver were a HOOT! They kept us laughing! Would recommend both tours.
Sound of music tour was very fun and informative. Our tour lady Anna was amazing. The bus trip out to the Lake District was nice and we enjoyed a lovely lunch there.
The salt mine was a little disappointing after we'd been to the salt mine in Poland
The sound of music was the best tour and the tour guide ana made it an experience to remember. She was the best tour guide for the sound of music and she sings very well, it felt like we were in the movie. Anybody who gets this tour get ana. She is not any other tour guide, every guide should be her

This tour and the guide were amazing! When people ask us about Salzburg, the guide from this tour is always in our story. The tour was fun and happy and made for a great way to see the countryside. I would not miss this while visiting.
Perfect combo! The salt mine were completely worth it, followed by a quaint visit to a Bavarian village. The Sound of Music was fantastic too!
Kirstl was wonderful! She fit the image of Maria and led the group sing-a-long well!! Thank you so much for a great trip to see the sights of a wonderful movie and sharing your home Salzburg with us. The Salt Mine Trip was awesome! It was more than what we expected. Definitely a worthwhile trip!
The tour was fabulous! It was wonderful seeing all the Sound of Music sights, and the scenery was beautiful. The salt mine was so much fun. We loved the wooden slides in the tour. The guides were fun and knowledgeable. Walter was our guide for the salt mine portion and was fun and interesting.
We first took the Sound of Music tour in the morning. It was a great tour for any Sound of Music fan as we were brought to many of the actual sites where the movie was shot. Even though the movie itself is more then 50 years old, it felt as if the scenes just happened yesterday. The tour took us to many breath-taking scenes in the Austrian countryside. What made the tour even more enjoyable was our guide Peter who was not just very knowledgeable about the movie and Salzburg in general. He made the tour really fun by leading us in singing of some SOM songs. This is really an excellent tour.
We then took the Salt Mines tour in the afternoon. The tour took us to more beautiful scenery outside Salzburg and eventually across the German border where the salt mines are located. It was a different experience going down 130 m deep into the salt mine by small train, sliding down 2 shutes to go deeper into the mine. Very informative. A recommended tour as well.
Myself and two coworkers took this tour and we loved it! It was so much fun to walk the areas and sing Sound of Music songs on the bus.
The salt mine tour was better than I expected. Not only did we go to the salt mine, but we stopped at other locations along the way. It was very informative. One of my favourite parts was going down the slides inside the mine.
Fabulous combo trip! Enjoyed the Salt Mines immensely. Our guide was Walter and he was well-knowledgeable and excellent. The clouds weren't cooperating with us that morning but he did try hard to give us a chance to view the Eagle's Nest. The Salt Mine tour was incredible-far exceeded my expectations. The Sound of Music tour also gave the chance to see some great sites that were used during the movie. Was glad I did the combo tour but if you have to choose one over the other, choose the Salt Mines!
Great day out,
Loads of fun in the salt mines and a wee Brucie bonus being taken out to Ober Salzburg and a view of the Eagles Nest before it :- Carlos the guide was VERY knowledgeable, highly impressive knowledge of the mines and even more so the history of Ober Salzburg
Enjoyed the Sound of Music tour too, very good guide in Toni and lots of memorable landmarks visited.
