We Booked this last minute and the tour has been my favorite part of our visit to Salzburg. You do not need to be a super fan of the movie to enjoy this tour. You get a great view of the whole city plus a bit of history outside the film. Our guide, Francy, was wonderful! There was a family... More

If you're a movie fan or even the story behind it this is a great tour. Not a difficult bike ride either. You visit multiple sites where the movie was filmed and you learn many different things about the real story and how it differs from the movie line.

This was our first bike tour of a city and we are hooked, so hope other cities are just as great. The company is casual but well-organized. Our guide was kind and knowledgeable on the topic of The Sound of Music. Quite enchanting to be at all the places from the movie and able to re-enact them. The countryside and... More

The bikes were not very good. They were squeaky, clunky, maladjusted and prone to chain derailments. For the price we expected a good quality city bike. The content of the tour was less than expected. They could have added some content of historical interest related to Salzburg as well as the sound of music trivia. They could have done a... More

My husband, three children and I had a lovely 5 hour ride around the Mondsee, an amazingly beautiful lake near Salzburg Austria. Our guide, Mijou, met us just outside if Mirabell Platz which is in the old town of Salzburg. She took us by public bus to the Mondsee where our bikes awaited us. Mijou is a lovely young woman...

We booked the afternoon tour which started out a little warm but as the sun set we had perfect weather. Our guide Sharron (?) was wonderful. She gave us so many inside stories into the filming of the Sound of Music and pointed out things we never noticed in the movie. The pace was just right for the group and... More

Absolutely loved this tour. Our guide Arsen was super and we saw so many sights we wouldn't have found by ourselves. Highly recommended - even if you don't know the film you will be a fan by the end of this tour!

My wife and I and our three kids (13,11,8) took the afternoon tour with Alan along with several others - one of the highlights of our trip for sure. If weather cooperates (as it did for us), really a fantastic way to see Salzburg and the surrounding region (as well as many of the sites from SOM). Well run and... More

I love to bike when visiting a new city, and this had to be one of the most pleasant bike rides I've taken anywhere, ever. And I've never even seen The Sound of Music! (I know, I know... for shame.) Without much more than a cursory knowledge of the song Do-Re-Mi, I still had a kickass time. I usually enjoy... More

Out of the 4 of us only my 12 year old had actually seen the Sound of Music - didn't matter we all LOVED it. The tour was a great way to get outside and see the city/countryside. Our guide Arsen gave us not only information about the movie but we learned a lot about the city as well.
