Traveler Tips


We recommend the tour guide wear a microphone so everyone can hear what she says not just the people beside her.
Don't miss the Frauschuh in Mondsee - best Apfelstrudel anywhere!
A few recommendations, get there early to sit in the front and take the morning tour during the winter (because it gets completely dark before you see everything in the afternoon)!

Don’t even think about it
Steven_E, May 2022
Our tour guide was cranky and lazy and did little to make the Tour enjoyable. We always tip our guides, but did not tip him.

A must when in Salzburg
ALEXIS_M, May 2022
Excellent introduction to the Sound of Music. Live closely where the movies was filmed, learn a lot of behind stage stories and anecdotes. Sing a long. Enjoy the breathtaking sightseeing. It’s complete with experience. I would call it a must when in Salzburg, and this company knows what it is doing.

Excellent tour
Holly_T, May 2022
Our tour guide David was brilliant and was so knowledgeable on the locations and stories about the production of the movie. The tour brings you out as far as Mondsee 30k outside Salzburg so it is a great way to see the surrounding areas. Make sure to bring your camera for plenty of photos.
