What to Expect
Make your own way to Mirabellplatz in downtown Salzburg to meet your guide. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, set out on a scenic drive through the rolling countryside of the Austrian Lake District. As you drive to sites such as Leopoldskron Castle, Hellbrunn Castle, and Nonnberg Abbey, listen to the film’s soundtrack on the tour bus, and sing along to classics like "Do-Re-Mi" and "My Favorite Things." Jump out to admire the views and take photos at Mirabell Gardens, where Maria and the children sang "Do-Re-Mi"; see the gazebo where "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" was shot; and stroll around Lake Wolfgang, where the famous opening credits were shot. The final stop of the day is in Mondsee, where you’ll have a chance to visit the beautiful Mondsee Cathedral, where Maria and Captain von Trapp were married, and enjoy some free time to shop for souvenirs. On return to Salzburg, your tour ends back at the departure point.

My family and I did The Original Sound of Music Tour the last week of October 2020 and it was so much fun! Going into it I would say we were medium fans of the movie, but coming out of it we are now huge fans! Our tour guide Sonja was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and

It was a rainy day in Salzburg and a perfect way to spend it! We didn’t let some “raindrops on roses” disturb our enjoyment of the tour. A great combination of trivia, beautiful sites, great guide and steadfast bus driver. We are so glad we did this unique tour.

We had a nice tour guide. Due to Covid-19 we got the tour on a small van, which was much more personal. The only “bad“ thing was that some places couldn‘t be visited, because the owners don‘t allow it. Which is totally understandable and it isn‘t the tours faul, but if you think
