This is a fantastic tour. I was picked up promptly from my hotel in Salzburg and taken to the coach at the Mirabel. The tour commentary started straight away from our guide, Walter. Now Walter is a gem of a commentator. He's been doing tours for 45 years and how he keeps everything fresh is amazing. He has a great sense of humour to go with his excellent English. He pointed out items of interest all the way to the base of the mountain where the Eagles Nest is located. We changed to the special buses that take us to the top. He gave us excellent - and accurate - advice on where to buy souvenirs. Take his advice! The Eagles Nest itself is a great experience on many levels - history, architecture and scenery. You spend about an hour at the Eagles Nest which is just right - not too short, not too long. Perfect. Timing is exact on the tour so you don't miss any buses. Lunch at Berchtesgaden for one hour - they are ready for a sudden influx of hungry visitors so no rush - one hour is ample. A wonderful tour which I would do again should I be in that area and I would go with the same tour people again, too. Do note that on the return to Mirabel you find your own way back to the hotel. Ask Walter to point you in the right direction for your hotel. I could not find any faults in this tour. Everyone in my bus raved about the whole experience. Go for it.
Very good tour! Lots of great information about Salzburg and Austria before we crossed into Germany. The Eagles nest itself had breathtaking views and was something really great to see. The stop in the small Bavarian afterwards was a highlight- loved the atmosphere there.
WALTER was an OUTSTANDING Tour Guide and a very personable individual! The tour was well organized, comfortable and ABOVE ALL we were the VERY FIRST group of the day to ascend to the Eagles Nest. Those who came later stood in LONG lines and the weather declined RAPIDLY to fog and rain. HIGHLY RECOMMEDED!
Fantastic experience, breathtaking views and a very professional guide ( Walter ) had agreat time and I would say "dont miss this trip".Highly recommended to all.
Scenic! Stunning! I loved the history of this place. Peter the guide was very interesting. Good commentary!
Fantastic trip with a very informative guide - very much a highlight of our European trip.
This was a great tour, thoroughly enjoyable, wonderful guide very informative, I would recommend this tour unreservedly.
well worth the trip the only downside was that it was foggy but there was snow. the guide was informative. recommended especially to see where and how it was built at the top of the mountain
A beautiful view from the top and a little place of history, pity that there wasn't any tours for people to walk down from the top to the bus place . that would be an interesting morning or afternoon walk
This is my second time on this tour, it is still great. Don't miss this. Highly recommended
This is a must-do trip, if you are in the mood add the salt mines and use up the whole day. You have to remember how and why this place was built! We were very lucky, having a clear sky day in early October, views were stunning. Tour guide Walter was polished, funny and expert - just try guessing which of several accents he actually seems to use! Highly recommended. Just remember though that this trip does take up 6 hours all in by itself, worth every penny.
What a view. The tour guide was so knowledgable of the history of the place. He made the trip quite an experience.
