Edelweiss and Do-Re-Mi with private guide

This tour is a combination of the magnificent city and the picturesque countryside of Salzburg in one day. It takes you to all the major sights, where the movie Sound of Music was made. Starting with a complete city tour, the tour leads to the Mirabell gardens, the old town, the Castle of Leopoldskron and the Castle and park of Hellbrunn with the Gazebo.
After this we will drive eastwards over the hills to one of the most beautiful areas of Austria, the lakes and mountains district. Past lake Fuschl our way takes us to St. Gilgen at lake Wolfgang, where we have a Lunch break and will enjoy the famous areal view across the lake, which can be seen as well at the beginning of the movie. Via the imperial city of Bad Ischl we will finally arrive at the highlight of this trip, Hallstatt and its beautiful lake. There you definitely will be enchanted by a unique historical town as well as by a spectular mountain scenery. The return trip back to Salzburg takes us to Mondsee with the wedding church of the movie.

A Recent Review of this tour

Marcus has the perfect combination of being informative yet conversational. My husband and I really enjoyed this day trip from Salzburg, first being able to explore all the Sound of Music important stops and then heading out to beautiful St Gilgen and Hallstatt. Lunch directly on the water in Hallstaat was simply fantastic and he even helped to ensure we were able to rent one of the electric boats to spend some time exploring the area. Simply put he is spectacular....
