We really enjoyed this 4-hour day trip. It was great to get out into the countryside and the route was beautifully scenic. Our stroll around the King's Lake Königssee was the highlight. Both the guide and driver were very professional and full of knowledge. We also enjoyed getting something to eat at the Christmas markets in Berchtesgaden. It is a great way to spend an afternoon and good value for money too.
The bus was a big coach seating 70, and the guide was a fantastically knowledgeable and interesting Australian man who's been living in Germany for a long time. The route was amazingly scenic, it took less than an hour for our very experienced driver to navigate city traffic and then mountain roads to bring us to our first stop. About half the passengers were on the tour to the Salt Mines, so we dropped them off before heading to Konigsee. I would've liked more time out of the vehicle to spend more time leisurely exploring the area, or perhaps even flexibility to stay one night in Berchtesgaden for a better feel of the area. Given the limits of a half-day tour, it was very well executed and the highly experienced drivers and guides made us feel very comfortable indeed.
It was a really great experience we really had a great time and found the guide a real asset. Thank you
Really enjoyed this trip. Driver/guide was excellent. No complaints at all.
I absolutely loved it and it was much better than I thought. I was absolutely amazed by mountains and the views. I would recommend it to anyone and would love to go there again.
This wasn't our first pick of tours, but the others were unavailable because of the time of year we went but we are so glad. It was beautiful and I learnt more about the area and the history than I thought i would. We were lucky because although there was snow on the ground it was sunny and warm. Loved it and would highly recommend it.
Guide was super!!! Wiews were most beautiful I have ever seen.
The drive into the Bavarian Mountains was absolutely beautiful. Travelling from Australia we just wanted to get into that snow that we were expecting to be everywhere in Europe, but due to the warmest European winter for some time we had to travel up to the mountains to see it and feel it, but it was well worth waiting for. The lakes were so peaceful. Our tour guide Michael could have been a little more talkative.
Guide (Natacha) was amazing - informative and friendly. Great local knowledge, scenery was fantastic.
Great tour to go if you have sometime to spare when in Salzburg and love mountians.

Awesome tour with incredible sights. Our guide was amazing and spoke six languages! We enjoyed ourselves so much we went back the next day for the lake region tour!

Great tour! Our tour guide Walter was superb! A rather fast tour, but hghly recommended. Exceptional mountain and country side beauty. Not sure how this tour would be if Walter is not the guide. He made all the difference!
This was a very enjoyable half day trip crossing into Germany - no passport required as there was no border control! Our trip was focused on visiting Konigsee Lake where we spent around an hour This was enough time to walk to a view point recommended by our guide to see the lake clearly We also spent time in Berchtesgaten but unfortunately it was dark when we got there so the views from the town were not visible. I would suggest that if possible this tour could start earlier in winter so it is still day light when getting to Berchtesgaten Our guide Walter was very informative although some of his jokes we had heard on our other trip
I had loved to stop here and there for a picture as we just passed by bus along mountains like the Watsman. The walk to the lake was nice. Berchtesgaden is beautiful.
I liked the tour, however it seemed like we were on a hurry to get to the next stop all the time. I would have preferred spending a little bit more time in each location.
I took some beautiful pictures against the beautiful mountains! Trip was very pleasant!
The scenery was fantastic and the views over the lake were stunning.
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour! Salzburg has beautiful mountains and King's lake was awesome! It was also amazing to see Hitler's Eagle's Nest (even from a distance). We wish that we had enough time at the King's lake area to ride the boat to see St. Bartholoma church and other beautiful sceneries on the other side of the lake. Other than this, it was great!
We had a wonderful guide- Anna - a Barcelona native. She customized out rour based on our needs and the local customs and holiday traffic conditions - we rerouted based on holiday traffic and had an amazing experience with absolutely no delays. Definitely worthwhile! Annette, Evan and Reed Mason
