This is a great tour. We had a great tour guide who provided us with a lot of great information during the drive. Once we got to the salt-mines we were walked right in and put in the front of the group for the tour. If you are doing the English speaking tour you will receive an audio guide that takes you through the mine. It's a great tour with a lot of information.
very informative and and a lot of fun.The tour guide was excellent and a gentleman.
Amazing is an understatement for this tour.. Carlos is a matchless guide.. Very well informed and he adds a very nice touch of humour to his commentary.. His comic timing is terrific.. The salt mine is another world.. I won't write much about it here since it takes away the element of surprise for those who're planning to visit it.. But it is a MUST VISIT place.. Due to limited time we didn't visit the Eagle's Nest.. But hopefully some other time we would.. Absolutely recommended..
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the mountains and the salt mines. The scenery was fantastic, with lots of snow. the salt mines interesting and fun and our guide Walter was great.
I thought this was a very interesting and fun tour for all ages! The tour has a lot of diversity to it and our salt mine guide was playful, adding to the fun!
very interesting to see how the salt is taken from the underground.
Honestly, I never would have chosen to go on this trip if it weren't for so many of my friends recommending it, and now I'm going to do the same! It may not seem hip, but the trip was amazing. The guide was knowledgeable and funny, the drive was beautiful and the salt mines are fascinating. You get to go down a slide that is steep but fun akin to Disneyland's Splash Mountain minus the cart and on a boat across water that is so undisturbed it looks like mercury. The stop in the cute town of Berchtesgaden is the icing on the cake - or the cream on the apple strudel. 5/5 would do again.
Great guide, informative tour of the outlying area os Salzburg, and a fun tour of Salt Mine. Learned a little history of the area.
Comfortable ride through the Salzburg countryside...very professional driver and tour guide....we had a very informative guide who was open for questions....we would highly recommend!
Very unique, very educational. If you can also spend time in the small town of Berchtesgaden nearby you will have created a wonderful day of touring worth a rating of 10!
We very much enjoyed this tour. The guide for our tour was very good and knowledgeable.
Very interesting .... LOVED the slides ... Will recommend it to friends!
The scenery was beautiful, tour guide was very knowledgeable and we had lots of fun on the salt mine tour.
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.
Excellent tour. Our guide Andreas was funny and knowledgeable. He told great stories about the area and spoke excellent English. wonderful tour.
