Okay, I was expecting a cheesy tour, but was I ever wrong. I’ve loved “The Sound of Music” since it came out in 1965. But I learned so much about the movie that I had no idea about. This tour was amazing and we really saw a lot of the places where they filmed. I’ve been to Salzburg many times over the years and never took this tour, but I’m so glad I did this time. Anyone who enjoyed the movie should take this tour—it was really wonderful! You’ll see the movie again with new eyes.
This tour will give you a good orientation to the city and surrounding area. If you watched the Sound of Music as a child you get to relive the memories on site. It is a great tour if you are in the city for a short while.
Just an unforgettable day spent on the ground, underground and on the water. Great facilities, wonderful landscapes and a GREAT GUIDE, thanks to which the whole day will remain in your memory for a long time ...
