TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST SOUND OF MUSIC TOURS:
Jamie May Hart, Haverhill, Massachusetts - "Exceeded my expectations!"
Emma Kershaw, London, United Kingdom - "It was such an amazing and unique opportunity to travel with Angela Cartwright on this private and intimate tour which included some exclusive visits to the Sound of Music filming locations around Austria. It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity and wonderful to travel with those who had the same interests and passions."
Graham Vollick, Tottenham, Ontaria - "My wife Cheryl and I have never been on this type of tour before. We always just did our own thing, so we weren't exactly sure what to expect. After experiencing the Craftours Sound of Music tour, all I can say is ...WOW! I didn't want the tour to end! We had an incredible time, made all the better by such a great group of people, all with a common interest. This was our first Craftours but it definitely won't be our last. Of course, getting to hang out with "Brigitta" for the week was the icing on the cake!"
Cathy Sandmann, Pompton Lakes, New Jersey - "Had a marvelous time. Germany and Austria were beautiful. Seeing the sites from the movie and Angela's comments were fascinating."
Judy Saville, Tehachapi, California - "The advanced planning and even the attention to details while on the tour made it an unforgettable experience for all. The sites visited were fun, informative and totally awesome. We were given time for self-guided excursions and shopping. The time spent with Angela was unforgettable. She was genuine, candid and delightful to know. Recommend this experience to any and everyone."
Suzie Follmer, Ventura, California - "This tour was a trip of a lifetime. Never have I been taken care of so well on my travels. The beauty of the surroundings and the company of those on the trip with me were special treats. It was a joy to have Angela Cartwright and her family join us. I have so many wonderful memories to look back on - I am so glad I made the decision to go!"
Kerri Cargill, Garran, Australia - For me, it has been the best, most fun, coolest, and uniquest trip ever! On the Sound Of Music tour with Angela we had amazing opportunities to visit most sights from this iconic movie. Sights the average tourist just don't get to see, either because they are closed to the general public or are located in areas unknown to most. We dubbed this tour as "the tour that kept on giving". Because every night we would reflect on our day and comment "it just can't get any better than this" ... and the following day it was! More fun, more adventures, more memories with Angela and more fabulous locations to explore. Not only did we criss cross Salzburg and it's surrounds visiting all the iconic sights, we also had a cooking class, shopping excursions, history lessons, an evening where Angela signed memorabilia for us and endless opportunities for our questions to be answered. How awesome is that?!
Carla Winchester, Ottawa, Ontario - "This was truly a trip of a lifetime. Angela was a joy, and made the experience so special."
Linda Emerine, Estes Park, CO - "This tour was beyond my expectations. Both Angela Cartwright and our tour guide were so gracious and down to earth. With the tour being a small group, we all bonded and lasting friendships were established."
Jerry and Marilyn Long, Gridley, CA - "Best tour ever. Up close and personal with a star in the movie; we traveled five days in Salzburg, 27 sites, uncountable scenes at each site, and our gracious Angela Cartwright provided backstage trivia. Never have we had such a time as this! Memories to last a lifetime!!"
