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!

Had an enjoyable afternoon on the Bavarian mountains tour to Berchtesgaden and the Königsee. Was a small group, and our tour guide Walter was excellent, with interesting and entertaining commentary a light mix of history and random facts and jokes. Obviously a 4 hour tour isnt particularly thorough, but an excellent way to have a quick look at the area, especially if you're travelling alone. I also highly recommend the apple strudel at the Goldener Bär! :)

We took this tour in late September and they said it would be a tour in English. Well it was in both English and German and the driver's English was marginal. Eight of us were squeezed into an eight passenger regular minivan without any additional windows and I was seated in the middle of the third row. From the entire third row seeing the sights just could not be done. You might as well take a nap because you just can't see anything. Panorama Tours should be ashamed of ripping people off by failing to disclose the details of these tours.

WOW... We went down into the Salt mines of Salzburg dressed as miners and received a through presentation of the history and production of the Salzburg Salt Mine. We went to the Eagle's nest where we saw on our own where Hitler had his special meeting place atop one of the surrounding mountains of Salzburg and then toured the beautiful lake of Salzburg and were left to take in the scenery at our own pace.
The actual "Tour Guide" Walter - left a lot to be desired. He was rude and unwilling to answer any questions - so Panorama Tours gets a "thumbs down for their choice in TourGuides... however, the locations where we were dropped off were great in that the Salt Mine personnel were able to be informative, and there was a magnitude of information at Eagle's Nest location was provided.
Oh....forgot to mention that he dropped us off for a "tea" at the end of the tour in a location where all the shops were closed. Strongly suggest you make sure Walter is not your Tour Guide....otherwise, the Tour sites were great.

Brilliant tour. Eagles nest brilliant. Berchtesgaden lovely. Salt mines incredible, especially the underground lake and the slides. Lake konijsee beautiful. Tour guide was funny and kept it simple. Tip would be to book late and wait to see what the weather forecast is as the mountains and nest would be a waste of time in extremely bad weather. Our weather was not brilliant but just about held up.
