Absolutely spectacular! The stunning beauty of the alps, the local villages and the excitement of the salt mines. But the biggest joy was the sound of music tout with our excellent and witty tour guide Naomi, who was wonderful and made memories to last a lifetime!
This tour was excellent. I enjoyed both parts of the tour and thought the guides did an excellent job. Although, during the Sound of Music tour, we did not need an hour to shop, most of the stores were closed and it was too cold to walk around outside. It felt like were we all encouraged to go eat at the one small cafe.
It was a fantastic day. Guides were terrific and entertaining. Would highly recommend it!
To begin with the end, the full day combined tour was well worth the money.
I lived in Munich for several years and have been to every tourist attraction multiple times as I would have visitors over the years. Finally, I took a course to become a tour guide and among the places I would take bus loads of Americans was to Salzburg. This trip, I was traveling with my niece who was seeing the area for the first time. I got to revisit through her eyes!
The tour was easy to find and the people whose responsibility it was to get us all on the correct buses were wonderful.
The Salt Mine tour itself began on time and the guide, Andre, was very entertaining, courteous, and watching out for our best interests every minute of our time. Andre told the right amount of stories infused with his humor. He engaged his audience, answered questions with ease and, in general, made each guest feel special.
The second part of our tour was the sound of Music. Sadly, I forget our guide's name, but I can honestly report that he too was humorous and regaled us with wonderful stories about the movie and the real life family. The entire tour was fabulous.
Given the opportunity, I will definitely take more tours with Viator!
We thoroughly enjoyed the salt mines. Kids loved the slide into the mines. Sound of music was wonderful for adults who know the scenes. Tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Overall salzburg is an amazingly beautiful city- well worth the tours
The tour was wonderful. We left on time from the train station. Jeff our tour guide was professional, amusing, informative and kept us all together and on time. The best thing about the tour was the beauty of Bavaria and the castle. Stunning. One suggestion, if you are over 50, consider taking the bus up to the top of the hill. The walk is a stress test. Nice job!
Two Great half Day trips with a stop for lunch in the middle. Well worth the time and money
The weather was not friendly. It was raining. We were still able to see most of the location sites of the movie.
Salt Mines was great. It was full of fun and great experience to slide down in miner's outfit.
The Salt Mine tour was excellent. The tour guide was very informative and explained the sites along the way to the mine. The Sound of Music tour was good but a little drawn out and the guide not as informative.
Due to extremely heavy rains and flooding in Europe, The Sound of Music tour was difficult to enjoy. Although it would have been wonderful on a beautiful, sunny day, the rain and flooding put a damper on it.
The Salt Mine tour was fantastic. What fun changing into miner's clothing, and taking the little train into a real salt mine. Sliding down the railings 200 feet was great fun, and put everyone in a happy mood. Sliding down a second railing was icing on the cake. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and had a great sense of humor. Taking the train out of the mine and being in Germany for a short while was an added plus. I highly recommend this trip for all age groups. I and my wife are in our 60s!!
This trip was so much fun! We did it for the Sound of Music portion, but ended up loving the Salt Mines as well. The stop in Berchestgaden was great and our driver even pulled over to show us the Eagle's Nest in the distance and to let us play in the snow.
Great tour for the whole family. The salt mines are a must see and amazing and the Sound of Music tour was entertaining. It was great to see all of the locations we knew so well from the movie. Very knowledgable guide and beautiful scenery. Whole day tour and a must when in Salzburg.
Despite the sound of it, salt mines tour was really fun. Sound of Music tour is such a cliche, but you gotta do it. Was a singalong too.
Definitely worth it to do the combo! We had such a great day! First we went to the mines, which were really neat! I had never seen anything like them. The drive up was great too! There was a lot of information given about the area. And the Sound of Music tour was terrific! Definitely a must do!
