Your trust is our top concern, so businesses can’t pay to alter or remove their reviews. Learn more.

Wonderful and fun private tour seeing locations of The Sound of Music. Not a normal big bus tour, we were 4 plus guide. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

“You are 16 going on 17, you need someone older and wiser telling you what to do…”

Several tour companies do “The Sound of Music” tour, but this was the only that did it in a van instead big bus(coach).  €48pp.  

Our tour guide wasn’t too thrilling, but he was friendly and very knowledgeable about the movie, filming locations, and Salzburg in general. It was a rainy day, so unfortunately we couldn’t visit a luge, but he took us too all the filming location, and more spots.  I never felt rushed at each location. We even had a full hour at Mondsee to see the wedding church, shop, and have relax in a cafe.  

NOT Bob’s fault: the only thing my wife and I did not like was our fellow tourists…they were friendly, but they did NOT sing at all.  Whenever our tour guide put on the music, it was just a duet with my wife and I. Awkward! I’m guessing there are more singers on the big bus tours.

Meh – disappointing.  Sound of Music is my favorite movie of all times.  Booked this early and we impressed by the responsiveness of the email exchanges taken place between BSTours and myself.

Starting off on a odd note – we asked to use the restroom prior to departure.  “Well we usually don’t do that, but you can this time.” hmmmm – heading out for 4 hours and you don’t have a toilet to use?  The bus was fairly comfortable but immediately one of the group states “I …

Travel Guides Cast: Everything You Need To Know

Travel Guides is one of Australia’s most beloved television shows, and with its crazy adventures and hilarious reviews, it’s not hard to see why.

WATCH BELOW: Travel Guides: The Fren family visit a farm

Channel Nine’s Travel Guides has taken off this year, with the reality show seeing everyday holidayers act as travel critics.

The very different groups of ordinary Aussies go on the same week-long holiday – reviewing the cuisine, accommodation, activities and local sights, where they tell it how they see it.

So, here’s everything that you need to know about this season’s cast.


New to the block are Matt and Brett, who have been together for 18 years and married for seven.

Matt, 45, works for the local council while Brett, 51, is a primary school teacher, and the two love to travel – meaning they have a lot of opinions on how holidays should be.

The difference between the two is that while Matt loves to organise everything, do everything and eat out for every meal, Brett is happy to go along for the ride.

They are quick with biting commentary on everything around them but are generous, kind and love a laugh. 


The Frens are well equipped to cope with stressful family situations and can always find the funny side of any holiday disaster.

Mark, 59, is the upbeat and forthright dad, so when on holiday he loves to negotiate hotel room upgrades.

For more than 30 years he has been happily married to Cathy, 57, whose quirky sense of humour and distinctive laugh is contagious.

Together they have two kids, Victoria, 27, who is always ready to voice an opinion, and Jonathon, 29, who is the more reserved one of the bunch.

The Frens are unafraid to give anything a go, which …

A 10-minute photoshoot outside Abbey Road Studios in 1969 would establish one of the most iconic images in rock & roll history. You, too, can pull three mates along to stroll the crosswalk on Abbey Road.

The Beatles weren’t the only rockers to make use of London’s fashionable streets in cover art.David Bowie‘s ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars‘ album was shot on Heddon Street (in front of number 23, to be exact) in 1972.Oasis chose Berwick Street as the setting for their 1995 ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory’ cover.The video for Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” was filmed on the street behind London’s Savoy Hotel.

The Music Geek’s Travel Guide To Detroit

Detroit doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being touristy. Lately, whenever we’ve made the national news, it’s usually been bad.

But, if you visit the right spots, you’ll realize this city’s musical legacy—proud and pioneering as it is—is a rich and remarkable vindication against all the negative things you’ve been hearing about Detroit. It’s the singers, songwriters, performers and musicians who inhabited this city (and its greater metropolitan area) from the ’40s through the ’80s, who would substantially influence (and in some cases, arguably trailblaze through) the genres of jazz, blues, Rdanamp;B/soul, pop, punk, hip-hop and techno. And it continues today. Here are five spots to check out when you’re in the Motor City.

1. The Motown Museum / Histville U.S.A.

2648 W. Grande Blvd.


This city created its own genre of music, The Motown Sound, and you can visit the actual laboratory where it was brought to life, Studio A. The former photography studio that was renovated into a recording space 65 years ago by the label’s founder, Berry Gordy, is now somewhat of a shrine dedicated to the all of the talented musicians, songwriters and iconic singers and stars who worked tirelessly to turn out too many # 1 hits to count during a whirlwind 10 year period in the 1960s.

There isn’t a long driveway, ornate gate or sprawled parking lot; the Motown Museum sits unassumingly in the middle of a neighborhood near midtown (you’ll need to call ahead for a guided tour with an experienced and knowledgeable museum docent). Breathtaking photos and inspiring memorabilia are on display, images capturing these soon-to-be musical history-makers in the act of creation. How many of us were raised on the immortal songs, captured within the walls of this studio? This is where Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye …

Fleetwood Mac Star Brett Tuggle Dies From Cancer Battle As Tributes Pour In

The musician, who is also a founding member of the David Lee Roth band from the 1980s, passed away on June 19, from complications related to cancer.

Rick Springfield penned a tribute on Twitter. He wrote: “Our sweet Brett Tuggle made it home tonight. God bless his beautiful spirit.”

His son Matt paid tribute to Rolling Stone, saying: “He was loved by his family so much.

“His family was with him throughout the entire time of his illness. He was a lovely father. He gave me music in my life.”

Tuggle’s journey with Fleetwood Mac began in 1992. He landed a gig with Mick Fleetwood’s side project the Zoo.

He played keyboards on every Fleetwood Mac tour between 1997 and 2017. Tuggle also played with Stevie Nicks and Buckingham McVie. Love of music began in his early years Photo by Harmony Gerber/Getty ImagesMORE: Meet Renta, TO1’s newest Japanese member and Produce 101 alum

The star, born in Denver, Colorado, felt a passion for music as a child, and loved the Beach Boys when he was in Junior High.

He previously said: “And like everybody else, pretty much, I saw the Beatles on TV and things were never the same.”

Tuggle’s love affair with keyboards started when he was a teen, and his first real gig came in 1970. He was hired to work on Detroit Wheels LP titled Detroit and also to play for them on tour. He left after 18 months and was then picked up by John …

The Ultimate Gift Guide For The Music Lovers In Your Life

The gift-giving period is about to start swinging, which means it’s time to brainstorm for gifts again.

You may already have some gift ideas in mind for your mother, father, or partner, but you also need to think of ideas for music lovers. Everyone listens to music, but not everyone is considered a passionate music lover.

An average person may occasionally listen to tunes on the radio or play their three-year-old music playlist from their phones. Meanwhile, music lovers are those people who are passionate about collecting CDs, vinyl, curating playlists regularly, attending musical concerts and festivals, or playing or making music themselves.

If you’re looking for a gift guide for the music lovers in your life, you’ve come to the perfect place. To start, here are some gift ideas you may want to consider buying for the music lovers in your social circle:

Turntable With The Best Sound Quality

For your music lover friends passionate about collecting the vinyl albums of their favorite artists, complete their collections by gifting them a turntable with the best sound quality. This way, instead of just displaying their vinyl collections, they can also play their favorite records as often as they want.

Just make sure to check out some budget-friendly stores or shop during Black Fridays if you’re looking for a turntable under $500. What’s more, if you can find a turntable that has a Bluetooth speaker, the better choice it’ll be so your music lover friend can play any music they want from other devices.

Just because they’re music lovers doesn’t mean you automatically need to gift them with a music-producing tool. You may also consider giving them a home décor piece that’s still related to their favorite music.

For instance, use one of their favorite vinyl records as an inspiration to …
