What people are saying about Salzburg

This was a good relaxed way to see the region. Make sure to get to each of the 3 locations a bit early to exchange your vouchers for a ticket. The cruise was about 45 min with brief commentary about what we were looking at, but mostly people just drank beer/wine and didn’t pay attention to the commentator. You will need to walk 15 min to the fernicular to ride up the mountain to the fortress for dinner. The menu is preselected, so you can spend your time enjoying the wonderful view of the river and town! we had the basic menu which was tasty, then the concert was in a fun medieval room next door. Such a perfect place to hear this music where Mozart was born. I highly recommend this activity package for a nice stress-free evening in Salzburg!

It was a very informative tour in the mine explaining how the region grew so much wealth through salt for thousands of years. Honestly my favorite part of the tour was the drive through the Bavarian Alps with the guide explaining the history of the region, and actually we drove right by Hitler’s Eagles Nest! We stopped in a beautiful alpine town for afternoon tea and a snack, it looked like a fairy tale with some light snow coming down on all the historic houses! But please be aware this location is in Germany, not Austria. I was not aware of this, so my phone and credit card did not work since it is a different country than I set travel notices for.

Very good trip very interesting and we went in a big taxi so our little group stayed together for an evening out after the mine trip

It was a great experience that was made very special since we were the only people on the trip. Thanks for a great day!

Great and friendly guide and a great tour - we visited as a family with a dmall child and enjoyed the tour.
