It was a good tour which included a short stop at Berchtesgaden for a coffee break, in addition to the Salt Mine tour which was interesting (but the English audio guide was rather minimal in terms of explanation). The guide had a good sense of humour and kept us entertained. But the price was a little steep for half a day.
The tour was excellently run; the tour guide charming & engaging; the scenery breathtaking. The actual end destination, while historically interesting, was not much to see. The positive, proceeds go to charity, UNICEF and that provides a reason to go. Otherwise, cringe at giving that vile monster any more notoriety.
The driver was very knowledgeable. The salt mine was fun and interesting. The kids really enjoyed the mine slides and sampling the salt brine. However I don't feel like the excursion was worth the price. I would recommend driving up on your own and pay at the salt mines.
I ended up with small group, the guide was informative and made few stops for breathtaking views along the way. Salt mine was fun than I ever thought it would be, recommend the tour for families.
The tour guide and bus driver were great. Not that much to see at Eagle's Nest, so plenty of time there. There was not enough time in Berchtesgaden. No time to look around and have lunch.
