Best trip we went on
Peter took us to the nearby town, and you'll want to ask for him specifically. We were so glad he was our guide on another tour we booked through the same company. We were at the very end of the season in mid-March, so while there was ample snow, we were in a carriage with wheels, not a sleigh, which we fully expected. The countryside was picturesque, and the guide, who owns the carriage and the horses, was full of information but not so chatty that we couldn't enjoy the ride. This is something you'll do once in a lifetime, so DO IT!
GUIDE BEN WAS VERY INFORMATIVE FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL. SLEIGH RIDE MAGICAL. SNOWED ALL THE TIME. WE FELT LIKE WE WERE IN A FAIRYTALE. JOSEPH AND HIS WIFE SO ACCOMODATING. HOT CHOCOLATE WITH RUM AN ADDED BONUS.
Christmas time in Salzburg is something that you must experience at least once in your life. I have been in Salzburg three times, one during the summer and two during the winter. There are several things to do but I specially will recommend the fortress and Mozart concert and the midnight Christmas mess at the cathedral not only for the mess itself but also because at the end they sing Silent Night in such a way that you feel transported. This time we had Christmas dinner at the restaurant sHerzl and was excellent. Other tour that was excellent was the Private Horse Drawn Ride
This was the best activity we did in Austria. Amazing Amazing!! To make it even more magical it was snowing the whole time. They give you duvet to try keep you warm. My advice to cover up as much as you can. You get picked up from your hotel and taken to the mountains, where they sleigh ride begins. The tour guide was amazing, stopped a few times for us to take some pictures to. Expensive but worth it.
We thoroughly enjoyed the sleigh ride experience. The weather was extremely cold with a lot of snow which added to the beauty of the country side and we were given warm blankets to snuggle into on the ride. Thomas was our tour director and Eric was our driver who kept us safe on the snow covered roads. The history that was shared on our ride up the mountain was very informative. We stopped on our way back to our hotel at a charming little town and experienced the fantastic Austrian pastries and coffee and the children were given the opportunity to play in the snow. Well worth taking if you are visiting the Salzburg area.
This was my favorite experience of our 10 days in Austria!! I was scared because we didn't have snow in Salzburg on the day of our ride, but the actual sleigh ride is up at an elevation that is much more likely to have snow. The pictures that I got from the ride are absolutely incredible. On the way home, our driver took us up to a scenic overlook to take pictures and that was also a magical experience.
Hey if you want to do something different with someone special this is a must.... I took my 74 y/old Mum with me. Yes its cold well freezing actually but it is so worth it. We had a great time and those are memories you have forever..
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.
