It was a great tour and very informative. We had trouble finding the meeting place as the directions given were wrong. There is a private stand right outside of the parking garage and not the grey line office as told. Please update. Other than that fabulous tour and tour guides

Very nice if you are a fan of the Sound of Music. The journey to the church took a very long time and in that time we were going to sing in the bus, but hardly anyone joined. It would have helped if the guide had tried a little harder to get the people to sing. And the music could have been a little louder, so it's not so noticeable if you can't sing well, or think that about yourself. I had missed going to the church where the wedding was filmed, we had an attendant who was originally Spanish and had lived in Salzburg for years, his English was quite difficult to understand here and there. But all in all a very nice outing!

The meeting location is across from Mirabell Palace and is very well marked. We stopped for 3 film locations with the bus. The first stop was the gazebo at Hellbrun palace - 10 minutes to take photos. Then we stopped across the lake at Leopoldskron palace to see it from afar. On the way there you see from the road the house where the exterior of the von Trapp is filmed. Lastly we traveled to the town of Monsee to see the church where Maria and Georg get married at the end with 1 hr free time. I was a bit disappointed in terms of the places seen, I thought we would have more time/visit more places/ be able to get closer. We don't get very close at all to Leopoldskron and the other house. You would probably be better off just going around Salzburg and seeing the other film locations on foot. The bus tour is really just to see a couple of the ones that are not in Salzburg. However it was still a fun time
