Many special sights of Salzburg area
Feb 2020 • Friends
This was a 19-passenger van tour, which we selected, as we wished to be part of a smaller group rather than with a large busload of people. The tour van had only the two of us & started with the general Salzburg area & some history, & we got to see many of the sites & sights that were part of making the movie “Sound of Music.” Beautiful! We had a 30 min. rest stop break after about 45 minutes, then left the city of Salzburg & drove through the hills & mountains & forests up past Wolfgangsee & on to Mondsee, both large lakes. The scenery was spectacular. The driver/guide Al played music & had some commentary as we rode along. We arrived in Mondsee at the Basilica & were given 1.5 hours to wander through the beautiful Basilica & still have time for apple streudel at a nearby cafe. The driver/guide then drove back along the motorway & dropped us off at the gardens (most parts closed in winter) for the last hour of the tour on our own. So, all in all, our 4 hour guided tour had about 1.5 hours of guided tour which was a surprise to us. Being a group of 2 might have been a factor, but it seemed like this particular driver/guide was much less enthusiastic than usual guides in the tourist industry. Salzburg is a beautiful city & the surrounding area has stunning scenery, but for €50-55 it was pricey & not a great value.

Worth every penney
This tour was amazing from start to finish.i had contemplated doing the tour with a coach load of people which would have been cheaper but glad I spent the money on this. Rosa Marie was an amazing guide with knowledge you wouldn’t get from anywhere else , she has personal experiences with the trapp family and this highlighted our tour. We were lucky enough to only have to share the minivan with 2 other women so four in total. It was like a private intimate sound of music tour all to ourselves . I would recommend bobs tours whole heartily to get the most of the sound of music experience with added extra knowledge . Such a fabulous day !! Thank you!!

Great tour!
Oct 2019
We did the half-day Sound of Music tour and half-day Bavarian Mountain tour with Sylvia -- both were excellent! We appreciated that the tours were customized to our interests, and loved getting to see the greater-Salzburg countryside. Sylvia was both knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. Would highly recommend to others!

We enjoyed our trip with it being a small van. Nothing like when we went with a bus as too many people and not able to see as much. The only thing I would change is to cut out the extra time spent to look around where the original church was and spend some time at Mirabelle Gardens with the tour guide.

Loved it!
Sep 2019 • Couples
We really enjoyed this tour with our guide Silvia!! She was very fun and knowledgeable and made sure we enjoyed our day. Singing the songs from the movie and we drove through the countryside and learning about the background of the family was fantastic. This small van your is the way to go....there were only the 4 of us and one additional couple. We enjoyed the stop in the small lake town to have cappuccino and strudel!!

Loved by Both the SoM Fan and the SoM Skeptic
Engaging and informative tour with Tom through both the popular and the lesser-known Sound of Music sites. The minivan seems far superior to the ‘big bus’ alternative. Very much appreciated Tom’s introduction not only to the history of the movie, but also of the area ..... as well as his sincere reflections on current Austrian society, culture and politics. One of us was looking forward to this activity, but both of us felt it was money well-spent. Two thumbs up!

The highlight of our short visit to Austria
We took an early morning train from Vienna to Salzburg, spent a few leisurely hours walking around the city and then found the tour office with plenty of time to spare. Although our van was designed for 8, only my wife and I had signed up for the 2 PM tour, so it turned into a private one. Silvia was fantastic, totally knowledgable about the real events, compared to what was shown in the movie, very accommodating to my wife who walks very slowly, and took us to so many interesting locations. We even stopped for a drink and strudel at a small local restaurant that my wife felt was the best that she had ever eaten. Although we encountered some light rain, this did not detract from a very enjoyable afternoon.

Tom was a great guide!
Aug 2019
My wife said to write, "OMG, our guide, Tom, was fabulous!" I have to agree. He was just the kind of guide you would always hope to have. Tom was friendly, helpful, entertaining, and had great knowledge of the area. In our smaller minivan, with only seven passengers, there was plenty of room, and we visited places ahead of the larger bus tour, and went places in the lake country the big bus couldn't go. Thank you for a great tour, Tom!

Perfect way to see the Sound of Music sights
I booked this tour because of the small vans, which are more personal and can drive on different roads than the huge buses. The extra cost is worth it! We really enjoyed seeing all the sights and stopping for a bit in Mondsee. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

Also, we missed our flight and arrived a day later than expected. I emailed the company and they were able to switch our reservation to the next day! Great customer service.
