Wonderful tour in the snow, great guides, Gerhard and Josef! Also did Panorama Salt tour, Christmas markets and Bavarian Alps and City Tour, all great and wouldn't hesitate to recommend all the tours. Viator was easy to deal with and communication was excellent! Thanks you!

This tour was amazing!

This was an excellent tour. The driver took us to several lookouts where we could take pictures on our way to the sleigh ride and then we visited some towns on our way back. It was a wonderful car ride both out and back. The sleigh ride was very special. We had hoped for snow and we almost had it but it ended up being rain and sleet. The countryside was gorgeous and the horses were special.

Excellent tour guide. He went out of his way to make sure we saw as much as possible in the time allowed.
Sleigh ride was lovely so pretty despite no snow. Again the guide was excellent.
Well worth doing.

What a great trip to do....the local company was great and Thomas our guide really was brilliant . He was knowledgable and really added to the whole experience. The sleigh ride was a lovely way to see the Austrian countryside. I'm glad we included this trip on our weekend in Salzburg.

Fantastic tour, our guide was very knowledgable and the driver of the Horse Drawn Sleigh was very friendly. The scenery was fantastic, would recommended this for any time of the year, particularly around Christmas time. Book early!

Lovely friendly driver, really nice sleigh driver, lovely little cafe - just like a big farmhouse kitchen (and cheap). Glorious weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip, which was very important to us as it was our daughter's 18th birthday celebration. Many thanks.
