This is an experience that’s both educational and fun, making for a great family day out. Don a miner’s uniform, shoot down a slide and ride a boat on the intriguing underground ‘mirror lake.’
We love it. It was so much fun. The only issue we had was it was a little difficult to hear and understand the guide.
This was a lot of fun, especially the slides. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone except someone with a severe case of claustrophobia. The train ride into the mountain is very narrow with a short ceiling and goes on for several minutes. Finally, the gift shop has a wide variety of souvenirs available, including inexpensive ones.
It was a great adventure. My partner wanted to slide again. The light show on the lake was spectacular.
This was the perfect activity for traveling with kids. It was engaging and not too far of a bus trip from Salzburg. We had a great time! The Tour Guide was friendly and informative. My son enjoyed tasting rocks that taste like salt and the various laser light shows throughout the tour. Bring cash for ice cream after the tour!
This was a wonderful trip, organized well, and a lot of fun for children. It was also quite informative.
Great tour. Tour guide was amazing and had great stories. The actual Salt Mines was well worth the trip. We were concerned it might be more for kids but we had a blast and it was very interesting and cool. The little town you stop in is also very cute but you don't have a ton of time so make a decision on a place to have a drink or snack quick and enjoy.
We had a great tour guide. He was laid back, had a sense of humour, he was enthusiastic and was a genuine Austrian :-. Unfortunately we forgot his name but to identify him you could look for the blond haired guide that is also a pilot. The trip to the mines was interesting and then the mine itself was a good tour. All round great.
Terrific...!!! Carlos the guide knew the region in and out.. Beautiful landscape, lovely weather, gorgeous small towns loaded with history.. The salt mine tour is certainly the highlight.. A very nice use of technology.. A must do.. The drive itself is quite giving..
This is an excellent excursion, perfect for all ages. Everything from the protective overalls to the train ride in the narrow tunnels to the huge slides makes this a fun activity. Also, the program is a true educational experience. Our guide was informative and had a wonderful sense of humor.
Excellent host, not just informative but very entertaining! The salt mines were fascinating, and the scenic bus ride beautiful. I only wish there was maybe 30 minutes more to explore the town of Berchtesgaden. There is really only time to eat lunch or explore, but not both.
