What people are saying about Werfen

Super friendly guides, all in all a great experience. The one star deduction is for changing in the middle of the meadow or after the tour behind the car. Otherwise we were super happy and had fun

Pick up very punctually, relaxed drive with interesting travel tips from Michael, great view on the mountain. The ice cave is fascinating and well worth seeing.

Everything was fine but we were were waiting a bit to much.
