Your day tour departs from central Salzburg, where you meet up with your guide and venture by coach to the Alpenstrasse, traveling along the King's Lake River.

After a scenic drive, arrive at the salt mines and step into authentic miners' gear. As you enter, learn the history and local lore buried deep within this 450-year-old underground world. Travel down to the grottos on the same slides used by the miners and enjoy a thrilling descent! Explore the hidden terrain with a raft sail across the famous salt lake before making your way back up to the surface.

After your adventure in the salt mines, take off on your 'Sound of Music' tour. Led by an expert guide, re-live your favorite scenes with stops at Mondsee to see the wedding church, as well as the Mirabell Gardens, the famous place where the children sang ‘Do-Re-Mi’ with Maria.

As you drive from each location, sing along to the celebrated songs from the film, including 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen,' 'Edelweiss' and the cherished classic 'The Sound of Music'.

Skip the salt mine part
Tabitha_S
, Oct 2021
SOM Tour was cool and we enjoyed the guide. We would not recommend the salt mine & mountain part. The salt mine was very gimmicky and a waste of time. They had a few facts along the way and herded a huge group through walkways with little information or interesting sites. You can’t take pictures so they can make you buy theirs.

Salt Mines were brilliant. Sound of Music tour great fun. Johannes was a great guide/driver for our visit to Salt Mines. Bridget and her driver were fabulous on Sound of Music tour. A great way to see the beauty of Salzburg. We would definitely recommend these two tours to anyone visiting in the future

Mines with sound
Jorge_S
, Jun 2019
Actually two separate tours booked together, with time for lunch in between. We went to the mines in the morning, beautiful views all the way to there. The mine was fun, but of course, it's an amusement park ride, not an adventure tour. No photos allowed but they sell you the photos they take, 10 euros for two pictures. The afternoon tour was the Sound of Music tour. Our guide was funny, very well prepared, without him, I wouldn't like the tour. It is a bus tour, you go to Mondsee, and the guide points out the sites were the movie was filmed, you stop on the lake, the to see the gazebo (no visit to Hellbrunn palace), and finally Mondsee and you either take a little sightseeing bus train shaped (at your own expenses), or you walk (ten minutes) to the church (free entrance), and then you have time to walk around, and back to Mirabell Gardens were the tour started. Both guides were very good, the program itself could be better.

The salt mines tour was very good and educational. Antonio our guide and driver was also excellent a host and made our trip super fun. The scenic drive to the mines was so beautiful and we got to see the countryside covered in the first snow of winter. Truly magical.

The salt mine tour is very interesting and informative. The tour guide very knowledgeable and I enjoyed the tour.. especially the slides in the mines! However, I must admit I purchased this tour mainly for the SOM tour. Wolfgang was my tour guide for the Sound of Music tour and I do not think it gets better than him! We saw all the sites including the Gazebo.. Wolfgang was extremely accommodating at taking pictures since I was on a solo trip. He threw on SOM songs throughout the tour as pertaining to the sites we were seeing. I could not have had a better birthday. I highly recommend this tour if you are a SOM fan.

The salt mine trip was lots of fun. The drive to the area was beautiful. The driver was very competent while driving through the mountains. As big fans of musicals we thoroughly enjoyed the bus trip to see the venues where the Sound of Music was filmed. The tour guide had many entertaining stories to share and did a wonderful job.

This was a very full day for us but very fulfilling. Having grown up singing Sound of Music tunes, this tour was very good. I would suggest that the guide update his VHS tape excerpts to a higher quality, but he was extremely knowledgeable and worked very well with the driver. The Salt Mines tour was even more fun than anticipated. Loved the slides and boat ride. Be aware that there is no place to store a purse or backpack, so leave your stuff on the bus. Tight time frame for this tour since the bus went somewhere else while we were in the mine. Then they picked us up and we HAD to be ready to go. All good.

Both parts were great! belongings stay on bus while in mine so plan accordingly. No photos in the mine but I bought the ones they took at the end- 5 euros- so stick some euros in your pocket if you plan to do this. Went from one activity to the next, so glad I brought some snacks. Loved singalong!

Margaret P

My 16 year old granddaughter and I loved the Salt Mines tour, the train into the mountain was good and the slides amazing, even though they looked challenging to say the least. Would have gone again if we could, the photos they take are only 5 Euros, which compared to anything similar in the UK is a fair price. Would have liked to have bought a guide book showing the tour, as they discourage guests taking photos, probably as lots of flashes would spoil it for other people. Would recommend this tour for such fun. The Sound of Music tour in the afternoon was also enjoyable but more crowded. Loved seeing the locations from the film and lots of back ground stories. A lot of people on our coach were reluctant to sing along which was a shame, but our guide Ana was very good and tried to get everyone involved. Watched the film on my return home and loved seeing where we had been. Also recommended for lovers of the film.
