A fantastic tour far beyond the movie - We booked our 4 hour van excursion tour at the last minute in person at the ticket booth, on a rainy afternoon without many expectations. (Spouse had never seen the movie and was tagging along as a good sport. ) It was just us, and another family of 5. We both expected it to be more than a little... cheesy? Instead, our knowledgeable guide gave us a FANTASTIC tour, which put the Von Trapp story into compelling context-- the half day was much more about Austrian history, culture, ecology, architecture, etc than expected. It covered a lot of physical territory too, with great sights and stories from the past and present, much of which had nothing to to with the movie (like the gorgeous and cool contemporary headquarters of Red Bull). We enjoyed the stops as we also learned about the filming, as promised, and saw many of the beautiful and interesting production locations. Of course Andrew played bits from the popular songs, but we were not overwhelmed with it. Truly, this was a highlight of our time in Salzburg.

Rain or shine- The hills are singing! - Even with the rain, the tour was amazing. We had Dave as our tour guide and the bus driver Malfred, their tour and singing skills were superb. The tour started with the back of the gardens known as the Leopold gardens where we learned many behind the scenes sneak peeks that will guarantee you watching the movie the second you get off the bus to see the differences you didn't see before. You then travel to one of the gazebos for the second spot and then continue the scenic route to the mountains. My personal favorite was the Wolfgangsee Lake, maybe the prettiest view that I have seen. On the way back we sung the sound track as we were literally in the hills of music. Totally worth the 55 euros, even from a cheap student perspective!

Exceptional Tour - My 18 year old daughter and I participated in this tour today. It was outstanding. Four hours have never gone faster. We were entrusted to Evo the bus driver, who transported us safely throughout the tour and David, the guide, who worked tirelessly imparting interesting details from the Sound of Music. The tour is comprehensive, we toured past relevant sights like the Abby, the Von Trapp residence, the famous gazebo, the Basilica in Mondsee where Maria and the Captain married and the Mirabell gardens. We had ample opportunity for photos, toilet stops, shopping and eating, there was a bar on board and we were engaged by David with his beautiful voice in songs from the movie. Can’t recommend this tour enough, so happy we did it. Thanks David and Evo for an unforgettable day.

Great - Guide was very knowledgeable about the material and seemed to enjoy what she does. The only reason I can’t give 5 stars is we all we crammed into a mini van and it was hard to see some of the sights.

Interesting - The guide is VERY passionate about the sound of music tour. You see some beautiful sights however i only recommend if you really enjoy the movie because otherwise all the singing can be a bit much!

Fun, Spectacular and entertaining - Trip to the Lake District provided some spectacular views and pics. Our Guide was very entertaining. Only downside was the timing going to the town of Monsee. It was pretty much shut down. No where to eat and very dark.
