We debated about a small van tour vs the larger Panorama large bus tour and decided on Panorama. The big bus was the way to go! Our guide was quite an entertainer - perfect for this tour. We heard lots of facts about the movie and stopped in several places both in town and in the countryside where the movie was filmed. I can still hear us riding thru the country side singing with the guide, the song track and the other passengers from all over the world. The hills were alive with the sound of music on our tour!
