Sound of Music Tours

Jump to last reply

I'm taking Mom to Salzburg for 5 days. She's in her late 70s, so we'll be doing a tour or two rather than doing everything on our own.
In particular, we'll be doing a Sound of Music tour. There are more than one group offering these tours--any preferences? Opinions? There's the Panorama tour which seems to use large coaches. There's also Bob's tours, which uses smaller "luxury" mini-buses (I'm taking that description with a grain of salt).

I'd like to pick the best, most comfortable SoM tour even if it costs more. Thoughts?

We'll do a couple of day trips on our own--a day in Bad Reichenhall, another day to Hallstatt. Salt mines and ice caves are out--too strenuous (not sure if Mom would be up to that 100 foot slide into the salt mine, so best to give it a miss). May also go to the castle at Werfen for the raptor exhibition, I think there's a "castle taxi" she can take from the base to the castle.

Anyway, your suggestions on the SoM options much appreciated.
