Excellent, good value for money, thoroughly enjoyed the mine it's certainly a little different from the run of the mill tours.

Salt mine tour was fun and informative. The Austrian lakes are very scenic and well worth visiting although we did get caught in a torrential downpour at one point- which in itself was a great experience.
