Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Bavarian Mountains and Salt-Mines Tour from Salzburg. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The tour of Saltmine was very good and with lots of fun and information. However, Bavarian Mountains tour was a farce. Just they drove us by and told the names of the mountains. I expected to go to the top of some mountains and have a view of the area. However, the scenaries were fantastic.
Top little tour that the kids enjoyed too. The Salt-Mine is a good little tourist thing to do. Good info from the driver about Hitler's Eagle's Nest retreat (which we didn't see - wasn't open yet and cloudy).
Some parts of this tour were a little odd, such as lighting up some areas of the mountain side with twinkling lights. Also, two out of five in our group had audio difficulties, like no sound at all. The slides were fun.
Fabulous tour! We had some initial difficulties (because Viator didn't disclose the tour-company name, and there were several tour companies providing this 'type' of tour once we arrived to claim our booking), but it all worked out once we managed to communicate that the booking had been through Viator.
Tour was good, as i visited in the odd time of the year there were only 1 other family along with me for the tour and we had the privilege for a seperate vehicle , tour guide was informative and helpful, there was no hurry in the tour, salt mines is worth visit visiting in Salzburg it is very exciting for both children and adults
some important points to remember
1. You are not allowed to take photos inside the mines, but there are 3 places where photos are taken automatically at each photo cost 7 euros
2. the guide who comes to inside the mines would only speak only german (because only mine employees are allowed inside and your local guide cannot come with you, you would have hand sets in different languages but not that effective to a person speaking)
Loved it! Slides were awesome, even our 2 yr old enjoyed the experience.
The trip to the Salt Mines was great. The children enjoyed it very much. The staff both in Salzburg and at the mine did a wonderful job.
The driver picked us up at the hotel on time and the tour bus left on time.
The salt mines tour was excellent. Our bus guide (Walter) was a delight as well as our dirver. Small complaint: we thingk we could have done without the stop and spent more time driving in the mountains.
Unfortunatly the day we done the trip it was very misty so we couldnt see much in the mountains.
The Salt Mines were brilliant though, we had a lot of fun going down the slides.
