Two separate tours. Exceptional guide for the Sound of Music Tour. She was a doll with a great sense of humor. All of the sights in the movie are on the tour.
Different story with the Salt Mines tour leader. The guide consistently said 'Ya' and was not as friendly as one would expect. The Salt Mine Tour was a learning experience but if you only have a few days in Salzburg I would skip the Salt Mines Trip
Really simple to work and understand. Great value for money.

Very enjoyable day. Highly recommend this tour.
The tour of itself was really interesting and entertaining. Our guide, Gunther, was also quite amusing. The only drawback was the poor organization of the transport at the Panorama Home Station. It really appeared as if they were not capable of getting the right people on the right bus on time. Once we departed, it was as enjoyable as we had hoped. As an example: I had purchased the morning tour for 6 people. They had us booked on the afternoon tour. Once corrected, we stood around waiting for our bus which never arrived. Instead the passengers for the Sound of Music tour were offloaded, and we took there bus. Customers weree confused as no real information was forthcoming...and tempers flared. Still the tour was very much worthwhile.
The salt mines and Eagles nest tours were great. Not worth doing the lakes component. Combining the tours meant that there was too much free time spent at Berchtesgarden and the lakes.
what a brilliant day long but to see Eagles Nest, Salt mine and the beautiful Koningsee in one day was a long day but it was a brilliant trip.
The trip was real value for money. The guide was helpful and informative. The salt mines were lots of fun!
Driver was great and customized the tour to our interests . The only criticism is that the breakfast was a very basic buffet and half the dishes were empty by the time we got there
The tour guide was great. The locations were incredible. The Tour was run very well. The salt mines are a must for everyone. Great time. The kings lake hike was incredible. Highly suggest the tour for not only the history, but an understanding of the area as well.
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
The tour of Eagle's Nest was terrific!
The tour of the Salt Mines was fun and informative.
The Bavarian Mountains were breathtaking.
This tour is definitely worth a day of your travel itinerary. Walter was our tour guide and he ran a tight ship to keep us on time. He had a great sense of humor which was fun on our bus travel. Make sure you have plenty of battery power for your camera, I guarantee you will be taking many beautiful photos throughout this tour.
Great tour, really enjoyed both the Salt mines and the Lakes. Salt mine slide was great fun!
Wonderful trip, Stunning mountain and Lake views and a new experience in Salt mines. Our Guide Walter was very very good and provided us a lot of information. A relaxing boat ride in Lake Wolfgang see. Thanks to Viator.
Walter, our tour guide, was funny, informative, well organized. You can tell he's had a lot of experience! The tour itself was great. Being able to see both sites, plus the little German town of Berchtesgaden, and yet not have to drive ourselves or figure out where to go or how to get there, makes it a great value!
The Salzburg card is a great value. You get free public transportation, plus one time free entry into the fortress, the funicular ride up to it, the Salzach boat cruise, and just about every museum worth seeing in Salzburg! I wish more cities had a similar plan at affordable prices!

Very happy the the tour and guide
David was great. He took us to and explained all the sites. It was a memorable and great day! Thanks David for making it so complete. You enhanced our knowledge of the Sound of Music immensely!
Combined all day tour is a good idea and not too taxing. Both the salt mine and Eagles Nest were worth visiting. Our guide was informative and had a good sense of humour. Really enjoyed this tour.
We very much enjoyed this tour. The guide for our tour was very good and knowledgeable.
this was a really great tour which we both enjoyed a lot
had the best time on this tour the guide Walter was very funny and totally knew his stuff defo recommend this as it is one of the most beautiful sites you will ever see, not only the history alone but the views is literally to die for:
Our guides got both tours were fantastic! The salt mine tour worth every penny ! We both had a great time
Our only suggestion would be to give a little more time in the towns that we allowed to get off in! We felt hurried to use the restroom, get something to drink and look around.
Beautiful scenery on Austrian lakes and mountain tour. Tour guide was very professional and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the entire tour.
Met at easily designated area where we boarded bus on time....did 3 tours in one day and everything went smoothly. Good guide for all tours and everything happened as planned. Salt Mines were extremely fun. WE did have a little rain for Eagle's Nest but we really wanted to see the building. Once up there everything was fogged in so we did not see any mountains or views that was the only disappointment, but no one could be blamed for that. Still thoroughly enjoyed the place and the history ....recommended for adults.....we were able to have enough time to walk all around outside and inside on our own and sit and have a drink/dessert before it was time to leave. Good time allowed. Enjoyed the stop in the small town also and just sat and had a dessert and relaxed after walked a few streets and looking in windows.
I love this city, and there is so much to see! The card made it easy to go from attrition to attraction without fumbling around for Euro just show your card and enter!

Overall, It's quite impressive! Seat on the right side on the red bus that takes you up to the Eagle's Nest if you wish you see/capture the best scenic shots! ... At times you feel a bit rushed to get the most out of the morning itinerary, but once you have left the Eagle's Nest it becomes a bit relaxed. A must though! - Do stick to the time allotted for each activity!
