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.

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!

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.
