This tour was one of the highlights of the whole 5 week trip. The train, slides and boat were just fantastic and enabled us to enjoy a few unexpected events whilst learning about the salt mining process. GREAT JOB by the staff.
All 7 of us rated this tour as one of the top highlights of our tour. It was absolutely fabulous. We had great fun, especially going down the slides into the mine. The tour guide was very professional and willing to answer questions. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
The salt mines were a lot of fun. We happened to book this on a day it was raining, This is by far one of the best tours to do while it is raining, as it is indoors. This tour is in Germany which is a short drive from Salzburg so it was nice to experience a day in Germany also.
Very interesting and a lot of in. The Bavarian village was an added bonus.
Do not miss this trip. Very exciting and fun going into the salt mine. Was great to learn so much from the tour.
it was very interesting and gave us lots of information on salt mines
Great trip,beautiful sight seeings.The Salt mines tour,interesting and fun.
This was an informative, fun and totaly original experience. Suitable for any age. your journey starts on a little train, then you take the slide into the heart of the mine. The audio guide is really interesting and visual effects add to the experience. Mirror lake is stunning, the ceilings reflection actually looks like a floor until the boat moves through it. We had young and old on our tour and it was equally enjoyed by all. The tour guide on the coach too and from the salt mine was excellent, informative and amusing. I would highly recommend this to anyone
Excellent, the guide was super friendly and the tour was to expectations.
My wife and i took this trip and had a great day. Our guide was fantastic and made it all the more enjoyable. It didntl; feel too long and the scenery was great. It was helpfull that they collected us and dropped us back to the hotel afterwards. we would highly recommend it.
Very nice tour. Guide was great in pointing out places and talking about the area. Salt mine tour was nice. Stop in Berchtesgaden was very nice, long enough to eat at a restaurant. Please be aware though that even if tour picks you up at your hotel, they do not return you to hotel. You must walk or make other arrangements.
Our teenage boys had a great time and it was really fun for all of us. Highly recommend going.
It was a perfect experience. The train trip into the mine, the sleigh rides there were two and the short boat trip on salt were fantastic to us. We had our 11-year-old son with us and he had an absolutaley fantastic time. It was probably the most amazing experience he had had during our stay in Salzburg. When I applied for this tour, I doubted whether the sleigh ride would be dangerous but there was nothing dangerous at all, even for toddlers. It is a place people who are planning to visit Salzbug should definetely see. However, on the way back to Salzburg we dropped by a small beautiful town called Berchtesgaden. We had only 40 minutes to visit the town and have lunch. So, it wasn't enough at all.
I went on this tour to the salt mines four years ago and since they have totally renovated it. I would have recommended it before halfway, but with all the new fixes and totally new buildings I say this is a must do! Especially with older kids or for those in technicalscientific professions. But don't worry, everyone enjoys a different part---especially the slides!!!
Very nice tour. Guide was good, and as the day was good we got a clear view from far away of the Eagles Nest as well.
Loved this tour! Began with nice description of Salzburg as we were headed toward the countryside. The drive was beautiful and the tour was a lot of fun. I don't know if I understand how salt is mined but we still had a lot of fun!
