This was well worth the cost. A nice introduction to cooking 2 different dishes and you eat both as well, along with a nice bowl of soup. I will be trying these recipes at home. The teacher is quite friendly and well organized. The location is rather cute as well, simply cut into the rock (literally).

Tour guide was very entertaining. Be aware that many of the movie sites are on private property, so we could only see them from afar. We can visit the gazebo, the church & Mirabelle Gardens. I still recommend the tour, as guide provided many movie facts & information. And of course, a sing-a-long!

We had a great time in this class. It was such a fun experience while in Salzburg. Johann was fantastic and very helpful to everyone in the class. The food was delicious!

Very interesting and informative tour by an excellent guide. The choice of food gave one a real taste of eating in Salzburg. Highly recommended to all.

Great activity in Salzburg. Informative and great value.
