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.

Though I am not a Sound of Music fan, I did find this enjoyable. My wife, daughter and sister-in-law however were over the moon with this tour! They (and I) enjoyed all the sing-alongs. We stopped at all the major places where the movie was filmed including Leopoldskron,

We were very disappointed with our tour. There were two groups of us split into two vans. Those with back seats could barely see anything. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, but very unexcited. I am obsessed with the musical, but she didn’t seem to like it at all. It was a

Hello, thank you for choosing our tour company and for taking time bringing your experience to our attention! Unfortunately it seems that we did not meet your expectations and we are very sorry about this since our main aim is the satisfaction of our guests. As described on our website etc. Salzburg Panorama Tours is responsible to schedule the tour vehicles. During low season and for smaller groups we operate our tours in minivans where necessary. That's not only in order to save expenses but also to respect the environment. We do understand that you would like to gain a deeper insight into the Sound of Music locations, therefore, being somewhat disappointed. However please be aware some of the sites are not open to the public and therefore cannot be visited directly. Thank you for respecting that. Again, thank you for the review! Be sure we take customer meanings very seriously because your review helps us to improve our tours and services. We would be happy if we could get another chance to welcome you on board of any of our tours someday. With best regards, your Salzburg Panorama Tours team

Firstly booking the tour was really easy and I only booked once I knew the weather forecast. I traveled to Salzburg from Munich on an early train. Finding the gathering point was easy and the welcome was friendly and fun. The drive and tour guide worked well together. The guide
