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.

Great tour! Close pick up from hotel, comfortable van, knowledgeable guide. The mountains are beautiful. Short stop to see a view of the Eagle's Nest on the way to Berchtesgaden. Salt mine tour was exceptional. Loved the train ride and miner's slide.

This was very well done and much fun. It was also interesting. I was not expecting that salt was so beautiful! I only wish that we had time to spend in the gift shop, It would be advisable to buy things at the beginning and store it in one of the lockers.

Although our bus was late due to traffic, we enjoyed every minute of the trip thereafter. Knowledgeable, friendly tour guide named "Walter" did an excellent job pointing out the noteworthy spots along the road to Berchtesgaden. Don't miss the Salt Mine Tour - very interesting and a lot of fun.

This tour was excellent. The Salt Mine was incredibly interesting with plenty of information thanks to English audio guides (the guided tour was in German). Understanding the history through the various museum pieces was great and the wooden slides and lake cruise added interest to the tour as well - great fun for kids and adults! The mountains and Berchtesgarden were lovely - a great way to taste the Bavarian Alps. Highly recommended.
