A truely magical Christmas treat. With plenty of snowfall, days before our arrival, the surrounding scenery was beautiful. The view from the coach window was stunning. For the first leg of our sleigh ride we were bathed in glorious sunshine so be prepared with a pair of sunglasses. After a quick warming refreshment stop (snowball fight for the children) we headed out for the second half of the round trip, this time through thick snowflakes. Make sure to wear plenty of layers and cover yourself well. The sleigh ride itself was exhilarating at times but smooth overall (my wife, pregnant at the time, will vouch for that). The sleigh itself is fitted with retractable wheels with which the friendly and skillfull driver can engage whenever the surface gets a little uneven. The restaurant our tour guide adviced us to try was perfectly fine and reasonably priced. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would recomend it to all. The sound of those sleigh bells will stay with me forever.
Trip was fantastic. First Xmas in the snow and it didn't disappoint. The sleigh ride was actually for 2 hrs and was magical. Would definitely recommend and would love to do it again. 1 tip - Wear extra socks. It was freezing.
Magical. The best tour I have ever been on. The scenery was spectacular. I would do it again.
I was a wonderful day and a highlight of our trip to Salzburg - cannot recommend it highly enough!
A magical and unforgettable way to spend Christmas Day. It was the highlight of our five day stay in Salzburg. The tour guides were brillant from the moment they picked us up at our hotel. The mountain views were spectacular and for anyone looking for an alternative to turkey on christmas day try the beef goulash and dumplings for lunch.
The organisation and planning for this ride was very professional, the hotel pickup was seamless, and added to this was a crisp, cold, sunny day, stunning scenery, and an interesting sleigh driver with his dog! A very memorable White Christmas!

How special this was going for a sleigh ride on the last day of the year. Well worth it!

This was the best tour package that we took on our trip to Salzburg! The area we were taken to was ideal for the sleigh ride, providing a perfect Winter holiday setting. We were lucky with the timing as it had snowed the night before and had arrived to fresh powder!

A most memorable and enjoyable day! The entire trip went like clockwork and the sleigh ride was the highlight of the day! We were entertained by our guide from the moment we got on the coach to the moment we returned to Salzburg.
Our bus ride to and from the sleigh ride was well narrated and very cordially, personally conducted! And the sleigh ride was a highlight of my trip to Europe. Our driver couldn't have been more enjoyable, and the scenery was truly spectacular!

We all had a wonderful time, the guide was very good and the children loved the snow and horse drawn sleigh ride, worth every penny.

Had an awesome time with snow falling during the ride. Everything was well organised and staff most helpful. Would definitely recommend this to everyone.
The tour looked to good to be true, but it was more than good, it was exceptional. I cannot fault the day. The guides, transport, sleighs etc were fabulous. And the sleigh ride itself, well it was beyond our wildest dreams. If you are in Europe around Christmas, make a trip to Salzburg and do the tour, no more can be said. And our teenage boys - 16 and 14 - loved it as well.

It was a very enjoyable experience, a lovely way to see the scenery & enjoy the fresh air. We did have lovely weather for it though. Wrap up warm!!
This was by far the greatest thing we did while in Salzburg. If I could do it all over again, I would have stayed in one of the bed and breakfasts in Ramsau. It is very beautiful, and there is tons of snow and winter sporting activities.

The bus was comfortable and restaurants were excellent when we had our noon time meal. The sleigh ride itself was exceptional! The horses were beautiful, the snow glistened and our sleigh driver contributed to a perfect day.

A memorable trip through some beautiful scenery. The event was well organised too, it was handy being collected from our hotel. Just remember to wrap up warm!

This was a really nice day, where even the bus ride there and back were pleasant and enjoyable. The tour guide was efficient, polite and knowledgeable. The sleighs were comfortable and the route was scenic and beautiful! The restaurant that was reserved for our lunch totally optional was reasonably priced, had excellent food and was very comfortable. Overall, I'd rate this as a very worthwhile experience, particularly when you're there on Christmas Day! Dress for the cold, especially gloves, hat and good warm footwear.
