If you're a diehard fan of the movie, this is beyond worth it! The driver and guide team (we were hosted by Ferdinand and Bergette) were fantastic - funny and entertaining. We learned so much about both the movie shooting locations and the real family Von Trapp. Comfortable bus ride, so many shooting locations to explore, and plenty of time for photos. Great fun for all family members (ours ranged age 9 to 79!). We also went to the Restaurant Hertzl for the "schnitzel with noodles" menu afterward. This part was delicious but not a MUST unless you're hungry and happy to sit outside.

Everything about this tour was fantastic. Brigitte, our guide, had such great positive energy. She had a plethora of information and shared some personal experiences too. Our bus driver was very professional as well getting to each stop safely and driving with care. I will repeat the tour next time in Austria because it was so enjoyable.

excellent tour. only advice to others would be to do this tour on one of the first days in town so you have additional time to explore additional parts of Salzburg mentioned in the tour (ie. nun abbey) on a day after the tour ☺️

fantastic day would recommend Peter our guide was brilliant the day was topped off with a traditional Austrian meal at the Herzi restaurant in the old where we got fantastic service and excellent food

Excellent tour with a knowledgeable guide and a fun bus driver !
