The guide Peter had lots of interesting information and related the tour to musical very well. Even if you are not interested in the movie (my partner) the scenery is breathtaking. Bus driver did a wonderful job in the narrow streets. Have nothing negative to report. Worth while doing especially if you are in Salzburg for only a short time.
