It was a wonderfull experience! David was an enthusistic narrotor and he had an good ambiance in the bus. Busdriver Fernan (?), the driver with the Salzburger short trousers was a sympathetic man. We recommend it by our friends.

A highly recommended tour to learn about the Sound Of Music history. Well-informed tour guide, Peter, was very personable and had funny anecdotes to share. The bus was comfortable and our driver was excellent (I think his name was Nicky or Micky). Plenty of photo opportunities and a fabulous time spent in Mondsee.

Disappointed and Angry
Cathy_P

Booked this tour but was guided to the wrong bus at pick up. Asked 2 tour representatives if we were on correct bus and were told yes. Since we had no idea how far away the first stop was and the guide only spoke in German, we didn’t realize we were on the wrong tour until the bus stopped and we were guided to a boat for a 2 hour boat ride. Too late to ask to be taken back to Salzburg, so we had no choice but to continue the tour in the pouring rain. Upon returning, requested refund from aviator via website with no response. We were only in Salzburg for one day so missed seeing the Sound of Music sights. So very disappointed. Do not recommend Viator.

Great tour of lakes and outer Salzburg
Sarah_G
, Aug 2022
It was really great seeing the outer-Salzburg area, all the lakes, and the small village of Mondsee. Of course, it’s not possible to give a FULL 4 hour tour of only Sound of Music locations, so the tour did a great job packing in unique locations that the average Salzburg tourist doesn’t get to see. Mitch was excellent! And we loved that the bus sold beer and champagne.

If you are a fan of the movie The Sound of Music, this trip is a no brainer. I love The Sound of Music and this tour is exactly what I expected. It was a great tour that. On it you will be given a ton of information about the making of the movie, you will hear all of the songs from film on the way to places and you will make a few stops. In my opinion this tour is well worth it. Everyone should do it once.

More background and technical knowledge, not hyped up fun and singing.
Robin_C
, Aug 2022
Our guide, Peter, was great and very knowledgeable, but we would have enjoyed much more music from the musical as we rode through Salzburg and surrounding areas--at a much higher volume. The videos were great, but not many joined the singing, I think because the volume was so low. There was also lots of time without any sound track. We came hyped to sing all of our favorite songs while we saw the sights and were disappointed in that part.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Dear Robin Thank you for your feedback. We are really glad to hear you enjoyed our guide and the running of the tour. What makes the SOM tour so special is that it involves emotions making every tour unique never the same. So, it always depends on the crowd vibes how much singing is on the bus and playing the videos usually inspires our SOM fans Yet, we do regret that being all hyped up for your favorite songs ..expected more singing by the other guests on board. Once again, thank you for your feedback and we hope to welcome you back again where the hills are alive Best regards Your Salzburg Panorama Tours Team

Nostalgic and fun for Sound of Music fans both young and old!
Julie_G
, Aug 2022
The best part of the trip was traveling outside of the city to places I never would have gone otherwise. The locations we visited looked so much like the film! I liked that we had a little free time to explore between stops and the behind-the-scenes stories that our guide shared. Bridget was enthusiastic and awesome! There were a few places I thought we would go but didn’t (e.g. Nomberg Abbey and the Horse Fountain), but they were easy enough to find on my own after the tour concluded. I’ve wanted to do this tour since I was a little girl so it was very fun to finally go.

Such a wonderful experience and avoided the usual pitfalls of something that is so popular with tourists. Peter was an exceptional guide who really knows and loves the film and having all the clips played on the bus was an unexpected treat. Beautiful locations, great anecdotes, a wonderful way to pay homage to an absolutely fabulous film. Even my teenage sons managed to get into the spirit of it. :)

We arrived at the stand, given our tickets and shown where to wait. Within minutes our coach arrived and we were on our way. The coach had air con which was a blessing as the temperature was 37 degrees outside. The Australian guide was knowledgeable, funny and even gave us tips on other places to visit. The story he told brought it all to life. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour, first class all the way. Nearly forgot the singing and the goat…brilliant.
