Tour was well worth the time and expense
Alwin, our guide, was fantastic. He had stories and facts about all our sights and answered all our questions. We would use his services again, no doubt.

Best sightseeing experience!
Aug 2021
I HIGHLY recommend Bob's Tours! Rosa Maria was our informed, patient, knowledgeable tour guide. The small van sightseeing experience is just so superior and more enjoyable than those larger bus group tours. My daughter and I learned a lot about Austrian customs, the making of the movie and Hallstat on this all-day excursion, and I only wish we could have stayed longer in Salzburg to take more trips with Bob's Tours.

A perfect day.
Dec 2019
We had an incredible day on the small group Sound of Music and Hallstat tour with Rosa Maria as our guide. Her commentary was insightful; her knowledge of the local roads ensured that we had a spectacular trip through the amazing countryside and Hallstatt was a dream. Our fellow traveller, was truly special. My three 20 year old children, husband and I had a day that we will never forget.

Great tour of Salzburg not what I expected from a Sound of Music tour
Dec 2019 • Family
Since I was a young child I have dreamed about coming to Salzburg to see where the Sound of Music was filmed. I booked this tour after reading other reviews thinking this was the tour for us. Small group size and the chance to see the real Sound of Music locations before setting off to the lakes district and then onto Hallstatt. However this was not my reality.

We had a great tour of Salzburg and learnt a lot about its history and about Mozart but there was just an occasional mention of the Sound of Music. The CD was played was played as we drove from place to place. We stopped across from the Schloss Leopoldskron (which everyone on the tour had already stayed) and took photos at“the” gazebo and the wedding church at Mondsee but everywhere else we just drove past. Our tour finished at the Mirabell gardens but by then it was dark and we couldn’t take photos.

We were not given any choice on where to have our lunch, dropped off at a restaurant where we were advised where to sit with no other option. As a family with allergies it was not an ideal situation. Also the owner didn’t want to take credit card so please ensure you have cash!

Hallstatt was beautiful but it is not really a tour there rather being dropped off at the top of the hill and being told where to meet the group 1.5 hours later.

If you want a good tour of Salzburg and to visit Hallstatt and then this is a great tour but if you want to select where to eat and any depth to a Sound of Music tour maybe look elsewhere.

Dear 2sonsandlovetotravel! Thank you very much for your review! We are sorry we could not meet you expectations. The itinerary of our tour is clearly stated on our website through which you booked your tour. This includes the locations we stop at, such as Schloss Leopoldskron, Schloss Hellbrunn, the Lake District, Hallstatt and Mondsee. Other relevant locations are located in the pedestrian area or on private streets and we are not allowed to drive there on our tour. However we still like to point them out to you, as we drive by so you still get to notice them. It is also clearly stated on our website that the tour ends at Mirabell Garden. In wintertime it is already getting dark at 5pm and we can not change that. However, the garden is well lit and you are still able to take pictures of everything relevant. On the Sound of Music part of this tour, your tour guide explains the history of every filming location, as well as how the filming of the Sound of Music went at these locations. In addition your tour guide also tells you the story of the real Von Trapp family and answers any questions you may have on this topic. We concede that your lunch stop was not as it should be. As we already discussed via e-mail, we talked to your tour guide about it and this should not happen anymore. In Hallstatt, your tour guide explains the town to you, including the history of the town and which sights they recommend to visit, and then gives you time to explore Hallstatt on your own. Since every one of our guests is interested in different things, a guided tour through Hallstatt may not be satisfying for other guests. In addition we also advertise that you have time to visit Hallstatt on your own and never mention that we offer a guided tour through Hallstatt. Best regards from Salzburg Jonathan

Highlight of our Austria trip
We booked the Sound of Music/Hallstatt tour. We are so glad that we chose to book with Bob’s. Rosa Maria was an excellent guide and a joy to spend the day with. She provided great stories and lots of useful information. The tour length was perfect and well-paced. It is a great opportunity to see the Salzkammergut region, even if you are not a huge Sound of Music fan. The vans were comfortable and you could see well out the windows. Because you can travel quickly with a smaller group, we were able to beat all of the crowds to the sound of music locations, which was awesome. I would take this tour again without hesitation.

Wonderful tour for Sound of Music fans!
Oct 2019
My family had such a nice time on this tour. Being that it was in a small van, we were able to take country roads instead of the highways, which made the trip very pleasant. Our driver, Sylvia, was very friendly and knowledgeable. She gave us the option of visiting an additional lake town, which we really enjoyed. I would recommend this to anyone who loves Sound of Music or is just looking for pleasant tour of lake towns around Salzburg.

We found our mini van which carried 8 tourists was a perfect way to experience the Sound of Music tour. Being a small group it was easy and quick hopping in and out of the van and we were able to travel the scenic route where large buses cannot go.

Our tour guide Sylviia was very friendly and informative who made the whole experience fun and rewarding.

We also incorporated Hallstatt a town worth exploring which was amazing.

Highly recommend this tour.

A Great Day

I took this excursion a little over a week ago with Rosa Marie. She was a fantastic guide. She was so much fun and extremely knowledgeable. There were just 3 of us on the tour that day which was nice. I really enjoyed the day and all the beautiful sights that we saw. Thank you Rosa Marie for such a lovely day.

The Original Sound of Music Tour
Fun tour for the movie enthusiast. You will visit the sites where the exterior scenes were filmed and the church in Mondsee where the interior wedding scene was actually filmed. A highlight was the singalong to the soundtrack on the bus - great fun!
