What to expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your hotel in Salzburg or meet at a central pickup point. Hop aboard your minivan with your local driver and guide and take off on your original 'Sound of Music' experience. While you travel, learn fun facts and behind-the-scenes stories about the classic musical and sing along with some of the beloved songs playing in the background. Travel toward the 17th-century Schloss Hellbrunn (Hellbrunn Castle) to visit the reconstructed garden gazebo where Liesl and Rolf sang 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen.' Afterward, drive to the stunning region of Salzkammergut and marvel at the Alpine mountains and glassy lakes featured in the opening scenes. Pass the charming village of St. Gilgen, home to the movie’s mountain railway. Next, spot the yellow church in Mondsee where Maria’s wedding famously took place. Then, return to Salzburg to discover two more iconic locations: the Mirabell Palace and Nonnberg Abbey, where the convent scenes were filmed. Your tour ends at the original starting point. Since this is a private tour, be sure to list any special interests you have at the time of booking so that your guide will know them in advance, and then, on the day, talk to your guide about any sights you want to see more or less of, so they can tailor your itinerary around your wishes. See the Itinerary section below for details about the cooking school upgrade.

Had just the best morning!
Having said, 'there's no way on earth, I'm singing on any bus', I soon found myself singing along, and captivated by the hilarious mood of fun and high camp!
An absolutely excellent tour guide (American Lady from Seattle) did the most outstanding job of informing and engaging the crowd of us in an indulgent morning of Sound of Music stories.
Great scenery, impressive tour company, and I would highly recommend to anyone who loves Salzburg and hold the move dear to their hearts.

The Hills were Alive!!!

We took the Half day Sound of Music Tour. We were extremely lucky that it was a beautiful, crisp sunny day with snow covered mountains as a backdrop which only added a nagical aura to this excellent tour. The locations visited were stunning. Our guide David was excellent. Gave us a real insight into the filming and some of the filming techniques together with a wealth of information on the sites. He made the whole tour so entertaining. Our driver Eno was also excellent. Would recommend this tour.

AWESOME!!
Dec 2019
We did the Sound of music tour. Our tour guide Christina was wonderful , very informative. We never would have found or known some of the locations we saw by car. She was singing and had the whole bus singing. The tour takes 4 hours with frequent stops and getting off the bus to see things, take pictures. My son never sat down and watched the whole movie when we watched it every year. When we got back to his house he watched the whole movie and recognized places we just saw for real.

Most sites closed to public
The tour guide was excellent (entertaining, informative) so it was disappointing that most of the sites visited were either closed to the public (no special access) or inaccessible from the tour route - distant views only. Wouldn’t recommend it. Better to hire a car for less money and do same route at own pace.

Hello, thank you for joining our Original Sound of Music Tour® and for taking time bringing your experience to our attention. First of all we are delighted to hear that you were fully satisfied with our guide! However we are very sad that the tour did not live up to your expectations and that you left our coach disappointed. We do understand that you would like to gain a deeper insight into the Sound of Music locations. Please be aware that some of the sites are not open to the public and therefore cannot be visited directly. Thank you for respecting that! According to our evaluations and excellent reviews here on Tripadvisor, we get a lot of positive feedback on the running of the tour. We are sorry that you had not the same personal perception of this tour. We would be happy if we could get another chance to welcome you on board of any of our tours someday.

Wonderful service from A-Z by Panorama Tours. Easy to order a tour by phone and online; friendly service, prompt email exchange.

Our guide was “Leo”, very knowledgeable about Salzburg’s history, informative, enthusiastic and humorous! He truly goes the extra mile! We were a group of seven Americans and extremely satisfied with our private, custom-made Sound of Music/Silent Night Chapel tour. Highly recommended!!

Greetings from Mother Perfect and Daughter! Amazing Experience! Leo(pold) is the best tour guide ever!!!
Dec 2019
The Original Sound of Music Private Tour was amazing!!! Well worth the money for true fans of the film and the Von Trapp Family!!! Leo was the best tour guide ever and his knowledge (not only of Sound of Music but all of Austrian history!) is second to none! Do yourself a favor and book this tour -- ask for Leo (you can thank me later).
The tour takes you to all the hot spots in the film and Leo will tell you lots and lots of factoids from the film as well as behind-the-scenes information! Additionally, Leo recounts the true story of the Von Trapp family as the tour also goes past the real life residence and depicts their harrowing escape.

This is a must-see tour. You will not be disappointed!!!
