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.
Very cool experience. Joseph was very informative during the ride and we got to pat the horses :) Kohmo (driver, sorry if we spelt the wrong name) excellent driver and music choice great knowledge on area and humour and helpful with photos and moments. We love trout. Fantastic excellent time!
What a great trip to do....the local company was great and Thomas our guide really was brilliant . He was knowledgable and really added to the whole experience. The sleigh ride was a lovely way to see the Austrian countryside. I'm glad we included this trip on our weekend in Salzburg.
Just magical - it had just started snowing as we boarded the sleigh. Wonderful phots,the driver was the owner and very knowledgeable about the area.
Fantastic tour, our guide was very knowledgable and the driver of the Horse Drawn Sleigh was very friendly. The scenery was fantastic, would recommended this for any time of the year, particularly around Christmas time. Book early!
Lovely friendly driver, really nice sleigh driver, lovely little cafe - just like a big farmhouse kitchen (and cheap). Glorious weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip, which was very important to us as it was our daughter's 18th birthday celebration. Many thanks.
Fantastic. Our tour guide Peter was delightful. He was informative and friendly. Joseph the sleigh driver was equally charming. Highly recommended tour.

Absolutely brilliant tour. Excellent guide, beautiful scenery, lovely people. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would do it again given the opportunity. Very professionally organised and managed and we were picked up and dropped off exactly on time. Warm clothes and sunglasses are a must.
Wonderful. Our guide Peter was fabulous and the local Austrian driver of the two horses was great. The Snow and mountains and surroundings were unbelievable. Kind of pricey but if you have the money I would recommend Viator and this tour.
This was the highlight of our trip!! It was everything we expected. Great experience. The countryside was post card beautiful. Yes the sleigh has wheels as well as runners for early season travel,. That did not deter from the experience at all. The driver was great and very friendly.
Andreas our tour Leader shared his great knowledge of Austria (in English) with us and made it a wonderful and exciting drive to the Sleigh. Josef our sleigh driver was again very keen to use his best English to point various points of interest out and even organized a snow storm for us!!! Absolutely amazing experience. Thank you.
It was a very lovely and romantic Wednesday morning sleigh ride. The setting was so perfect because the snow started falling during our tour around the small town of Faistenau. It was such a great experience, one that we will treasure for the rest of our lives! Thanks, Viator for a wonderful winter wonder land experience ever!
Unfortunately there was no snow so our sleigh ride became a carriage ride around the town. However no-one can control the weather, and Joseph and the horses were wonderful. Our guide/driver to Faistenau (where the ride started) was also very efficient and informative.
It was perfect. The private tour was professional, friendly and flexible. It snowed that morning and during our Sleigh ride so it was 'Perfect'! I would recommend this if you have never experienced it, and if it is snowing!
Mini van driver was nice and spoke good English. Sleigh ride driver was a pleasant man although very softly spoken. Sights from the sleigh were breathtaking. However, when we returned after our hour in the sleigh, we were offered drink. We were taken to an upstairs part of one of the buildings around the stables. The woman who ran the coffee room ( I think the sleigh drivers wife) was totally rude, unwelcoming and unfortunately ruined what is an expensive tour experience. She obviously did not want to have to serve us and would have preferred to have been somewhere else. Then, charged us too much for a coffee that really should have been included in the price.
Trip not like it was described. "Sleigh" was on wheels. Ride was on wet roads (though snow was on fields) - no forest, no jingling bells, no walk in fresh mountain air, no drink in traditional local bar. Very over-priced, No mention in case of no snow, sleigh would be on wheels. Extremely disappointing.
This tour was a disaster,it was not a Sleigh, it was a Horse Cart on wheels , the warm rugs did not exist and what was provided for warmth was dirty and old. What a rip-off . On a positive note the tour guide was excellent.
