Our tour was with Panorama tour group with guide (and driver) Anne Marie. She was fabulous and gave extensive history of the sites as it related to the film and other interesting historical facts. We truly couldn’t have asked for a better experience and better weather. Since the pick up point is in the Thursday open market, it added to the experience. In the passenger van we adults all masked up. My young daughter (Age 3) was able to keep interested the whole time, only struggled the last 15 mins or so, which is remarkable after a four hour tour. I recommend bringing healthy on the go snacks and water (to be eaten outside the van) because there are not many food/water options due to the pandemic. Otherwise, we had plenty of bathroom breaks and LOADS of information. We also had a small group of 5 adults and one child. This company has been doing these tours since the movie first became popular and also received the local seal of approval from my hotel staff. Thumbs up!
Travel back in time with Mozart’s music. This evening was filled with a wonderful made traditional Austrian meal set in an acoustic dream room complete with period architecture and costumes. The musicians were of a high caliber and seemed to enjoy the evening as much as the audience. The wait staff went above and beyond to make sure it was as natural an experience as possible during this pandemic. Richardo and his wait staff colleagues were relentless (yet unobtrusive) to attend to everyone’s needs. I loved my wine suggestion and at the end of the evening, my sleeping three year old was carried down the stairs to the taxi that was called for us. It was a perfect evening complete with candelabra! It is a must do splurge in Salzburg.
The view from the fortress ist just gorgeous! The musicians were talented and the pieces very pretty. Since we went at 8.30 one tends to get quite tired during the last pieces but it was very upbeat music in the end and kept that lack of concentration to the end at a minimum. I would definitely recommend this trip super affordable and a nice Visite. I went with my grandma and she loved it!
As it was quiet a rainy day, it was nice to travel in the minibus with a knowledgeable guide! Lots of information not only about TSOM but also about Austria and the Von Trapp family.
Wonderful and very entertaining tour! It was a pleasure to see the movie locations in person. Absolutely recommend for SOM fans.
