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.

Great introduction to Salzburg
May 2021
Leo was amazing and charming!!
This was our first trip abroad after 6 months of lockdown and it was a rather chilly and rainy May day. This didn't dampen Leo's enthusiasm one bit. As we were the only people on the tour we were in our own van. On top of the wealth of Sound of Music trivia, Leo also told us of the history of Salzburg, which was great.
It was a great morning spent with Leo and now the kids love the movie even more than they did before. Thanks for the tour and regards to your wife!!
The Tracey family.

Awesome way to see so many Salzburg sights, and also satisfy all your Sound of Music curiosities
Oct 2020 • Family
My family and I did The Original Sound of Music Tour the last week of October 2020 and it was so much fun! Going into it I would say we were medium fans of the movie, but coming out of it we are now huge fans! Our tour guide Sonja was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and answered all our questions and really elevated the whole experience. What a treasure! Our kids (aged 13, 12 and 10) also really enjoyed themselves. Because of the Covid situation we were in our own van, which was really clean and nice. The tour covers so many parts of Salzburg you would want to see anyway so even if you aren’t a fan of the movie, this is a great, efficient way to see Salzburg. Thank you Sonja!

Raindrops on roses

It was a rainy day in Salzburg and a perfect way to spend it! We didn’t let some “raindrops on roses” disturb our enjoyment of the tour. A great combination of trivia, beautiful sites, great guide and steadfast bus driver. We are so glad we did this unique tour.

Singalong in Salzburg
Aug 2020
During a recent trip to Salzburg, one of the excursions I booked was the original Sound of Music tour.

This is a 4-hour tour that runs twice a day, at 9.15 am and at 2 pm.
Everyone who has ever seen the Sound of Music film, will appreciate visiting many of the locations where the film was made and reminiscing about the story of the real family Von Trapp.

The tour visits parts of the Lake district, as well as sights in Salzburg city like the Nonnberg convent, Maria’s home in the film before she went to work for the family. This is still a working convent today and can, for that reason, not be visited with groups. The Mirabell gardens and the Pegasus fountain, where maria and the children danced and sang in the film, Schloss Leopoldskron, the family home in the movie, and the church in Mondsee where the wedding scenes of Maria and Captain von Trapp were filmed, as well as the famous 16 going on 17 Gazebo, which is now in the grounds of Hellbrunn Palace for safekeeping as a result of it being vandalised in the original location.

I was very lucky to have a knowledgeable guide (David) who not only loves the film and is very au fait with the history of the family and the movie, but also enjoys passing on his knowledge to guests. The fact that there was also just one other guest on the tour, made for a very fun excursion, complete with singalong to the songs of the movie.

Salzburg Panorama Tours conduct this tour and many others on a regular schedule. Normally the tours run every day, but under the current circumstances with fewer visitors to the area as a result of covid-19, there may be days when not every tour is offered, so do check with the booking office before making plans. The norm is that tours run with 40-seater coaches, however, at the current time, minibuses that can accept up to 9 people run instead, in full compliance with social distancing rules and mandatory face coverings.

The tour is warmly recommended for anyone who loves the “Sound of Music”.

Lovely tour- would recommend!
Sep 2020 • Friends
Very good service and lovely tour guide! Due to Covid-19 we were only 4 people on the tour but the company keeps trying to survive. If you consider visiting Salzburg and love this movie - we can highly recommend this tour! Also: If you're Austrian (just like us) you might know that hardly any Austrians know this movie. So, for you, this might be the best time to broaden your horizon without the masses of tourists.
Anyway, you won't regret it. The movie is very kitschy but the circumstances of the finding and the locations are quite interesting!

Worth it
Sep 2020 • Friends
We had a nice tour guide. Due to Covid-19 we got the tour on a small van, which was much more personal. The only “bad“ thing was that some places couldn‘t be visited, because the owners don‘t allow it. Which is totally understandable and it isn‘t the tours faul, but if you think about going on the tour you shouldn’t expect that you are able to see all the locations at close range.

This was one of my favourite things
Dec 2019
With the kind of year it has been I am late in posting this review - but wanted to have it recorded that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. So thanks Panorama Tours.

We enjoyed all the sites and getting all cheesy singing along to the Sound of music songs. Our guide was great, very engaging and entertaining. The bus and tour pick-up and drop off was also well coordinated.

The information you get on the tour is good and the sites are all worth a visit even if you are not a fan of the movie. For our short visit it was a great way to see some of the city and surrounding countryside - we really enjoyed Mondsee.

This is a great tour for The Sound of Music fans.... and fans of Salzburg itself! David the guide was very enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgable. Putting the movie aside, David also gives a great tour of Salzburg, imparting knowledge about the city and its history, and the tour goes to the beautiful Lake District of Austria , where some scenes from the movie were filmed. Thank you!

Great Tour Very Informative
Aug 2020
Our tour guide Natasha was brilliant, very informative and great fun. She had so much knowledge about the Sound of Music and Salzburg. We had a mini bus due to Covid and I was happy we were not on the coach as it made it a lot more personal. I would recommend this tour and would suggest you do it at the begining of your holiday as it will help you to see where else you would like to go.
