My family really enjoyed this tour. Even though there was no snow on the ground, the scenery was so beautiful, the driver was so courteous and professional.

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 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.
