Was a great trip and our guide did a good job even though he is new at this. His speech delivery could be better but that comes with experience. The long drive going was broken up with rest and picture stops so that wasn't too bad. Coming home we watched the Sound of Music movie most of the way. Was almost 3 hrs long. Rained on us so that wasn't too enjoyable but such is life. Only saw a couple of places where some of the movie was shot so don't think you will see a lot relating to the movie. Still I enjoyed seeing Salzburg and the scenery on the way.

Very nice experience in a beautiful small city. But the local Salzburg tour was too short, only 1.5 hours, and we didn't get a chance to see the Schloss Leopoldskorn. The Lake area is very beautiful, but we were unfortunate as it was raining.
