IT WAS FANTASTIC. Despite the horrible weather (which our tour guide had no control over even though he tried) we had an amazing time. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and funny, he let us ask questions and always had more information if we asked. Definitely and 'must do,' the history and the beautiful nature will captivate your imagination.
Great tour guide, Walter. Good sense of humour and very informative. He also personally spoke to everyone to see if anyone had any questions or for confirmation at the end of the tour.
Guide was very funny, and easy to warm to. Wonderful location, and skipping the queue's is always win.
Loved it. We had a very good day weather wise and this apparently makes a difference. The views are spectacular. The building and the history are really interesting. Check the forecast before booking as the others we spoke to who did the tour in bad weather did not get the views. Wear good walking shoes. The area around the building is uneven and it is likely that you will want to go up the hill to get the magnificent views.
This tour was excellent. The view from the top of the mountain was second to none. The history of this place is very interesting. I would recommend this tour to others.
This was a really great morning out of town. The pick up service worked well, the organisation was perfect. If the trip had been conducted in total silence the scenery alone both on the way to and from the destination would have made it worthwhile. The guide was splendid. His English was perfect, very good sense of humour and kept me entertained. Maybe a wee bit more on the history would have been welcome but it was well pitched notwithstanding that. The views from the location were breathtaking.
I can only highly recommend this trip, tremendous value for money.
Excellent tour! Great information and amazing site. Guide was wonderful!
The views were awesome from Eagles nest. We were lucky to have a clear day.
This is an amazing experience and I would highly recommend anyone doing this tour whilst in Salzburg.
Even though we had bad weather it was still such a great trip, beautiful views and a great guide
The tour was very good and it was a lovely drive there, unfortunately it was a rainy overcast day so we did not have much of a view when we got to the top of the mountain. It was well worth going though to see the Eagle's Nest. The guide was very helpful and interesting and gave a lot of background information which helped you get a feeling for the times and what happened at the Eagle's Nest. On a clear day the views must be amazing.
Our guide, Walter from Panorama Tours, was amazing. He constantly gave us little bits of information as we drove towards Eagles Nest and also told us what was expected during the tour. Time lines were clearly explained and he went out of his way to make our tour memorable. Tour was excellent
This tour was fantatsic! The views are absolutely spectacular. Our guide was wonderful and had a great sense of humour! I would do this tour again in a heartbeat.
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.
