We did a lot of bike tours in Europe and the energy that the guides bring to this one makes this tour great! We are big fans of SOM and were not disappointed in the sites and scenery from the movie, even tho we could never see the mountains(clouds). Thanks for a great time. Highly recommend.

Although the group that went on the tour did not feel like re-enacting the scenes/songs from the Sound of Music tour, this was in no way a reflection on Kata who guided us or on the overall joy everyone had on the tour. The first hour was raining which dampened our spirit as we all looked at each other, wondering... More

Despite the weather being down right miserable, our tour with Kata was amazing! Not only did she know all her stuff about the film (including info on the original film that was later edited out of the remastered version), she was extremely fun. At the major stops, we were given a photo op, and were all prompted into singing the... More

This tour goes rain or shine. This review is of a rainy tour. Kata was awesome, gave us ponchos (take them even if you have a raincoat). The bummer thing about a rain tour is no speakers blasting SOM tunes. We had to provide our own (singing) which we did. The tour takes you all over Salzburg. Eat a good... More

We are not super fans of SOM, but wanted to hit some sights out of the old town without simply sitting in a bus... The weather was wonderful when we went 1st week of Oct.. We biked for 3+ hours and saw so many sights from the movie. I am not an athletic person, and the tour was very doable.... More

Even though the morning started out with light rain, we quickly found ourselves caught up in the fun and beauty of the Sound of Music sights around Salzburg. Kata provided wonderful background on the movie and the real von Trapp family as well as the other beautiful sights around Salzburg. I loved seeing the Nonntall Abbey, Leopoldskron Castle and Frohnburg... More

This is an awesome activity to do, even if you're not a fan of Sound of Music. It's a great way to see most of Salzburg as well as the outskirts of town, and for a fraction of the cost of the bus tours. Our tour guide, Cloud, was a lot of fun and knowledgeable about the region and the... More

My wife and I had a great bike tour with Francie. She was enthusiastic and informative. The tour provides a good overview of Salzburg and highlights the main sights of the SOM movie. It's was a sunny day and the views were incredible. Other reviewers have mentioned that the tour might be difficult for some. That may be, but it... More

This tour was definitely a highlight of my trip! I've wanted to take a "Sound of Music" tour for years, and finally made it to Salzburg. This was all that I had hoped for and more. It was so much nicer biking around the city and seeing all the sights with a small group, rather than being carted around like... More

You know how you look forward to an activity on vacation and imagine it in your mind and it never quite lives up to your expectations.....? Well, that is exactly the OPPOSITE of the Fraulein maria bike tours! It surpassed what we thought it would be like and was the BEST TIME EVER in Salzburg! We were on our comfy... More
