We had a great day out on the salt mine tour thanks to our guide for the day Leo. His enthusiasm for the tour and for the local area was great. He gave us the history of the city and all the landmarks as we drove out towards the mountains and then gave us loads of information about the Eagles nest and all the surrounding area switching seamlessly between German and English due to our mixed group. The tour of the mines was great and we jumped all of the queue due to arriving with this tour which was great. Arriving back in Salzburg Leo gave us some great recommendations for restaurants and things to see with our remaining time in the city which was really helpful. I would definitely recommend the tour, was a great way to see the area surrounding Salzburg and the guide for the day really did make the trip.
Our van driver to Salt Mine was amazing!! He showed us spectacular views and told us lots about history as we travelled up into mountains for Salt Mine tour. Views were breathtaking! Actual Salt Mine tour was ok... underground boat ride is more like floating across a dark pond for 4 mins. Mine tour guide didnt speak English & was very disengaged so we had to use recorded devices that didnt always play correctly. Kids loved the two slides in mine and "train ride" in and out of mine. Overall, entire excursions was worthwhile but best part was views to/from.
Αρχικά ήταν πολύ δύσκολο να βρεις το σημείο συνάντησης, αφου αλλά έλεγε το voucher και αλλού ήταν τελικά! Ήταν στην απέναντι πλευρά του δρόμου σε ένα συνεργαζόμενο πρακτορείο. Αν δεν ρωταγάμε θα χάναμε την εκδρομή! Σαν εκδρομή ειναι πολύ ακριβή για αυτό που προσφέρει. Η βόλτα στο αλατορυχειο είναι ωραία και διασκεδαστική αλλά πολύ μικρής διάρκειας!
I booked this excursion for my boyfriends birthday, as we were spending a long weekend in salzburg. I didn't know what to expect, but it went above and beyond our expectations. My boyfriend absolutely loved it and our tour guide Walter was super friendly and amusing. Thankyou for a memorable trip.
Great tour get to see quite a bit in a short amount of time. Take the back road so you are able to see the scenic view but it is a windy road so beware if you have travel sickness. A stop in Berchtesgaden was a nice stop where you can have coffee and dessert or walk the cute town.
