Full description
Start your trip in the idyllic scenery of the Austrian Alps. Visit the famous church of Mondsee, chosen by the director of The Sound of Music as an ideal location for Maria's wedding. On the way to Salzburg, take the chance to snap great pictures of the beautiful lakes and peaks. Enjoy the fresh air in the Hellbrunn Park, and see the famous Gazebo keeping the secret of Liesl's first kiss. See the Nonnberg nunnery, the oldest in Europe that became famous thanks to voice of Maria Kutschera, whose story served as inspiration for the Sound of Music movie. Take a stroll through the magnificent Mirabell Gardens, where Maria and the children danced around the Pegasus Fountain singing the song Do-re-mi. See the picturesque Hourse Pond shot in the film and Residence Square's famous Residence Fountain, the most famous fountain in the city, chosen for the I Have Confidence in Me song. Take pictures of the Summer Riding School where the von Trapp family took part in the world-famous Salzburg music festival, and enjoy the silence of the oldest cemetery in Austria at the Saint Peter's Monastery, where the von Trapp family found a secure hiding place before escaping to Italy.

was an absolutely amazing tour with numerous stops along the way to Salzburg that allowed you to see beautiful views of the Austrian Alps and the surrounding lakes. The tour in Salzburg was an amazing walk filled with great views and interesting facts. The stops to view the movie scenes were just the right length of time and definitely worth the entire day tour. The tour, two tour guides and the drive made this a 5-star experience. The only downside is that we listened to only 2 Sound of Music songs on the entire 14 hour journey.

We loved everything about this trip except for our driver. He was on his cell phone and texting while driving the whole time. Driving as much as 140 kmp, he was totally irresponsible. Please address with the company that you contracted with. We would not book with them again. We also didn’t appreciate how packed our van was. It was uncomfortable. The tour and the sights were wonderful and the tour guide we hooked up with in Salzburg was wonderful.

Good tour not very musical though. On the 3 hour journey to Saltzburg from Vienna driver played the tape once that was the only music. On route back , another 3 hours no music or radio at all just silence making it a long long journey back. Really informative tour guide in Salzburg
