It was an unexpectedly interesting trip! Can't imagine that they can build in so many elements in a salt mine visit. We joined in a group of 4 and all of us enjoyed the experience!

Salt mines are great. The tour provides detailed information on how to they extracted salt in the past and how it is done today. Our guide was good at keeping everyone together. He spoke only German however tour comes with an audio guide device for other languages. My husband's audio guide stopped working at one point however our guide promptly replaced it.
Our guide from the tour company was good too. He gave us a lot of historical information about areas we drove through, especially what happened during WWs. We later also spoke a lot about life in Salzburg and he was pretty comfortable talking about it at length. The town we stopped at to experience Bavarian Mountains was okayish. We had just 25-30mins there so couldn't explore much on foot.

This is a wonderful trip. Our tour guide, Andreus was funny. spoke wonderful English and knew a lot about the country. My favorite part was just seeing the countryside, absolutely beautiful. The salt mine tour was interesting. Highly recommend the tour.
