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, enjoyed the slide down although very scary. Tour guide very informative. Thanks Panorama for a great Salzburg experience
It was an exciting experience. Our bus guide, Walter was very knowledgable and pleasantly humorous. The mines tour was interesting although the audio in English did not work so well. The picture for 5.00 is a bit pricey.
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.
Salt mines are fun, and the Berchtesgaden area is simply beautiful. We enjoyed our trip
Great, informative tour, but the guide spent a lot of time speaking in German, and very little time speaking English , making us feel like we weren't getting the full explanation of all the information. Overall all , a good experience.
A really interesting tour and worth doing. Some very good features, such as sliding down the salt slide and going across the salt lake underground. A couple of down sides. The guide speaks only German and you are given an English hand set. Mine worked partially and my wife's gave out completely. Also, we were not told what to do at the end of the tour. We waited outside the exit and five minutes later, the tour bus showed up. Others walked off in different directions looking for the bus and then the tour guide had to spend considerable time looking for them.
Very well organised tour. The tour guide was excellent and gave us lots of information. Unfortunately we didnt have the best weather so views werent amazing. Overall a good tour that takes the stress out of travelling to the various places on your own. Salt Mines definately must be visited, great experience.
Fun tour. Very informative :) This was my second time doing the tour of the mine and I still enjoyed it. I especially loved the drive through Bavaria, and the tour guide was wonderful :)
It was not a clear day in the mountains and I am sure it was the tour would have been quite special. We did a Sunday tour and the town was still asleep and was not going to wake. The salt mine is a mass tourist attraction but nevertheless they put a bit of fun into salt mining tunnel experience.
The hand held device for hearing english was not working properly. Therefore, it was a tour with no explanations that we could understand. This was very frustrating and really detracted from the tour appeal. Otherwise good.

Our 10 year old son really enjoyed this tour. It was a fun half day trip with a stop for lunch afterwards. I enjoyed the tour and it was fun but not sure if I would've done if our son wasn't with us but it was a good tour.
An enjoyable tour with a guide and mini bus (only 6 of us on the tour) from Panorama. Time to look at Eagle's Nest from a distance and a fun trip with complete with train ride, slide and raft trip in the Salt mine - minimal commentary on audio - may have been frustrating if you wanted more detail though our guide in the mine could speak some English. On the return journey Berchtesgarden is a very pretty village with lots of churches. No time to sit and eat though a couple of our party managed it! Worth doing.
Salt mine tour was so much fun and very interesting! The Bavarian mountain tour wasn't much except a quick drive through the mountains to pick up other people.
This was a good tour as it was more than just the salt mine, we found the rest of the tour very interesting. The sights were amazing. The salt mine was fun with the slides and oat ride.
This was a very interesting tour! The tour guide was informative and funny. The drive to the salt mine was spectacular. I would recommend this to anyone who has 4 hours to kill while in Salzburg. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the tour seemed slightly rushed (in the mine) and I had no time to explore the gift shop afterwards. Another 15 minutes in the gift shop would have been nice. But overall, great tour!
