I loved going into the salt mines, especially going down the slide! Highly recommend for kids and adults too!
Our family had a wonderful time on the Salt Mine tour! The slide is a great thrill for all ages! We have had excellent service from Viator. We were stuck in London for 2 days and they graciously accommodated us by changing the day of the tour with ease. We truly appreciate the helpful attitude of the entire staff!
Very good trip, the substantial Salt-mine section was excellent - very interesting with some very good, unexpected, fun aspects
We enjoyed this tour. This tour was a combined Eagles Nest and Saltmine Tour, the bus dropped us off at the Saltmine, while the others went on to Eagles Nest. To enter the saltmine we had to wear very ugly overalls, which were very funny but kept our clothes clean. To reach the mine we rode on a little train into the mountain and then slid down a long wooden slide to the depths of the mine. This was great fun. There were two slides during the tour. Our miner tour guide spoke little English and pressed a button for the English commentary at each stop in the mine and after it was over called dis vay and strode on ahead. Some of the tunnels were damp under foot. The displays explained how the salt was mined, which was an interesting surprise others were about salt itself or the machinery used. The return to the surface was via a funicular elevator and then a return train trip. You can purchase photos taken while on the slide and train ride and there is an extensive shop. We waited outside for our bus to return to collect us. The bus returned and took us to Obersalzburg to meet the group returning from Eagles Nest. There is a shop at Obersalzburg where you can buy souvenirs of Eagles Nest. The scenery is very impressive. There was a lunch stop at Berchtesgaden before a return to Salzburg.
A fantastic trip. The slide in the salt mine was brilliant. It made you feel like a child all over again. Highly recommended!
Had a great and fun tour. The guides were excellent..
Very interesting and lots of fun on the train, slides and boat ride.
Sometimes I felt like they went into too much detail about how the salt is mined, but that could have just been me. The slide going down was a lot of fun, and the boat ride was incredible.
My son and I had a great time on this tour. Great for kids and adults.
Great tour. Lots of fun, especially the slides! The tour company was wonderful.
A real experience, and educational as well. Nice train trip into the mountain and tour through aspects of the mine - audio guide at the various sections with several language options. Nice boat trip on an underground brine lake. Sliding down the wooden rails was a real buzz - WHEEEE!!
I was lucky to have a clear sunny day after a couple days of snowy weather, so the scenery was absolutely amazing. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The salt mines were a lot of fun--especially the slide and boat ride. I would definitely recommend this tour.
This was a great trip; informative and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
The salt mine part of the tour was lots of fun! My kids loved it. The Bavarian mountains were beautiful. I learned a lot on this tour.
The excursion was both informative and enjoyable. It was a very interesting tour that made us aware of little known facts of how salt is mined. Once in the mine, the tour guide mostly spoke German, however he gave ample time to the English version played separately at each location visited. Be prepared to walk and some stairs but nothing overly strenuous. Definitely different, but enjoyable
Our guide was hilarious and had us in stitches. I have been to Bertchesgaden before and visited the salt mines. On the way back, we stopped at the actual town and were given a perfect amount of time to get a meal and some chocolates shaped like mountains, which are only made there. Good trip!
Excellent in all respects. Kept my boys 11, 4 and 2 captivated.
Great fun. Great for the whole family - the slide was fantastic.
Very good tour. My small group of six people very much enjoyed the salt mine experience, and our guide, Walter, was knowledgeable about the history and geography of that area of the Bavarian Mountains.
This was a great tour. The only problem is that they were rushing us and they did not even give us enough time to go to the gift shop. Then after that we went to eat, but again they were rushing us. So they should give more time, but had an awesome time.
Well worth doing. The journey here through the mountains was supberb. The salt mines although very informative was a bit sameish. After you had done the first stop and talk the rest were similar.
