What you'll do

During this walk we will visit the famous filming locations of the movie The Sound of Music in the centre of Salzburg. We will see the scenes from Do Re Mi, I have confidence, just to mention a couple. If you enjoy singing we can sing the songs and even reenact the scenes!
You will also hear about the real Von Trapp family, their true story. I will share with you some fun stories about the filming and the actors and actresses as well.
At the same time you will be walking through Salzburg, its baroque gardens, opulent squares; amongst its many churches and hills, across its river the Salzach and along its narrow streets with beautiful pastel coloured houses.
Towards the end of our tour you will experience incredible views of the Old Town of Salzburg and the mountains.

I'm Kata, a licensed guide in Austria. Originally from Hungary, 8 years ago I came to Salzburg on a day trip. On that day I fell in love with this breathtakingly beautiful city, so I quit my marketing job in London, packed my bags, moved and haven't looked back since! I started guiding bike tours, first as a summer job, but I soon realised how much I enjoy showing guests around, sharing my knowledge, and getting to know new people every day. With 7 years of experience and now with my official license I can show it all to you!
My team consists of my friends, who are also official licensed guides in Austria. They love the Sound of Music and of course this city as much as I do and they are also passionate about guiding!
Let us follow in the footsteps of Maria with you!

Our guide Eugen was extremely knowledgeable and obviously a professional. High level human interaction easily deserving a 5-star review. Could have talked to him forever about Salzburg. Great guy too!

This was a fun way to see Salzburg, especially if you like the Sound of Music! Definitely watch the movie first as you will appreciate and recognize the sites even more.

Yuliia was a wonderful host! I would highly recommend taking the tour at the beginning of your trip so that you have a chance to explore her personalized recommendations — not just for sights but also experiences and treats that Salzburg has to offer. Yuliia’s knowledge was impressive and her enthusiasm was infectious. We had a lovely time.

Great tour! Saw all the sights, loved the photo book of references and tour guide also added a lot of historical information about Salzburg as well! Highly recommend!

We had a lovely time with our host Eugene on this adventure. My wife is a big sound of music fan and Eugene did not let her down. He had pictures to show of some of the historical events and also of the family themselves, and was quickly to pull up YouTube clips to remind us of each scene. Not only did he cover the sound of music specifics, but he was able to tell us about Salzburg and it’s history along the way, which made the tour ever more interesting. He spoke very good English and we did not have any issues understanding him. We had a wonderful time!

This was wonderful! Absolutely enjoyed the tour and Eugene was kind and very very knowledgeable! He had an answer to every question we asked and didn’t try to hurry us along. Very good and highly recommended!!
