What people are saying about Berchtesgaden

This was a fun easy excursion from Salzburg. The salt mine tour guide only spoke German. We were given audio devices to hear the tour in English. I could tell we were missing a lot by not understanding the live tour guide. The tour included a mine train and two slides as well as a funicular. At the end of the tour we were taken to Berchtesgaden for lunch. The round trip took a little more than 5 hours. My only complaint is that the GetYourGuide directions to the meeting point were wrong. We luckily figured it out before we missed the bus. I am sure GetYourGuide would blame the tour company and visa versa. My point is that someone needs to own the problem and correct it. The directions in app need to be accurate.

Best activity ever. This tour fits for every age group except for those with mobility issues. Otherwise logistically everything was perfect. We unfortunately did not have a great view through the bavaria due to weather but otherwise we advised everyone to book the morning slot during winter season. Thomas was our guide and he was extremely informative & helpful throughout the trip. We love it!! Highly recommended!

Mitch took us on an amazing ride through Salzburg, to the Salt Mines, and to dinner/drinks in Bavaria. He was enthusiastic, animated, and full of knowledge about the area. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! Highly recommend for anyone visiting the area and interested in learning more about its history and the salt mines.

We have the most amazing time. Peter, our guide, was awesome. He went out of his way every inch of the day to make sure our tour was perfect. Knew so many quirky facts , local and historical, which made things even better. The whole experience was fantastic!
