I loved this trip. It's a postcard perfect place. Also, we had an awesome guide. Not only is he well informed about the historical context of the place and Austria on the whole, but he also knew how to tell them humorously. It was a pleasure seeing the locale through his perspective.

This was an excellent and fun excursion. Our guide was lots of fun and helped connected all the history and Hollywood for a excellent experience. I would recommend this to all who love The Sound of Music.

Incredible tour! The salt mines were so interesting and the Sound of music tour was wonderful for fans of all ages. The drive alone into the alps was breathtaking.

Superb visit, a bit short on site and the trip is a bit long by bus but it's worth the detour, I highly recommend

The trip was fantastic, very well organized and the scenery was beautiful! I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!
