Great experience, in depth tour of the salt mine museum, very interesting! The information was presented very fast so it was hard for me to keep up with. I still found it to be very interesting and new to learn for me. we had great tour guides on the bus also who were entertaining and informative about our passing scenery and the history. Don’t forget your passports !!! Since the salt mines are in Berchtesgaden, Germany. We loved the cool temperatures inside the salt mines, very refreshing from the hot summer temperatures in the city.

We had 45 minutes of free time after the tour to grab a bite to eat from Berchtesgaden. Well worth the trip to also enjoy the small German town which would have been much more difficult to plan since we traveled depending on public transportation.

This was such a fun tour and very informative plus the amazing views on the way to and from the salt mime. The tour itself was very fun and interesting to hear how they gather the salt and the process of the daily miner.

On the journey the driver/guide was very informative regarding the city

We had Leopold as a guide & thoroughly enjoyed his company. He was very informative, not just about Austrian history, but about world history as well. We enjoyed his sense of humor & conversation. I wouldn’t recommend the Salt Mines, as the guide there (not from Panorama, but from the Mines themself) did not speak English, & did not switch on all the translations for the audio guides. As such, we don’t know anything about the mines.

We used this tour package on 24 April 2022 for the timing 14:00 to 18:00. If we correctly remember, the name of the guide is Andreas or so. He was extremely rude. I was having a chocolate drink at 13:50 pm. He kept saying that we are getting late and made me throw away the chocolate drink at 13:55 (even though there was 5 minutes to start the trip). Throughout he was very rude and would not provide helpful information. Finally, he made us leave Bergtesgarden at 17:15 even though we could have spent 15 minutes more there. He kept saying that time is money; but never cared for the time of the guests. Avoid this tour guide at all cost.

Dear Mathew Thank you for your message and feedback on our tour… which does surprise us somewhat we must admit. First of all the tour was accomplished as described and our guides try their best providing best service. Please note as it is a public/shared tour we must respect other guests on board – therefore no drinking and eating during the bus ride. Since on this very day only few people were booked for this tour and being therefore more flexible, the guide kindly asked if we may depart a little sooner. This way, an earlier timeslot at the salt mines would be possible; spending more time in Berchtesgaden afterwards – which the other guests on the bus tour appreciated very much. Nobody felt rushed by any means. The reason we left Berchtesgaden 15 minutes earlier: it was you who asked the guide if this would be possible in order to catch your train. After the guide made sure everyone else was ok with it, the tour departed from Berchtesgaden at 17:15 hrs. Also, all grouped tours depart & arrive at Mirabell Platz, our guide even dropped you off at the train station after the tour just to make sure you are on time. Something rude and pushy travel guides usually don’t do… Therefore we are sorry the tour did not meet your exceptions although: • we left 5 minutes earlier to catch an earlier time slot • spending more time in Berchtesgaden than usual • leaving 15 minute earlier from Berchtesgaden because of your train schedule • getting a free ride to the train station once again thank you for your feedback all the best Salzburg Panorama Tours

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour with our very entertaining guide Leopold. The timing was perfect; on the drive to the Salt Mines he told us all about the city and the surrounding area, we had priority entry into the Salt mines tour (no time wasted queueing), which was interesting and great fun. After the Salt Mines there was just the right amount of time to stop for lovely tea and cakes at the alpine village of Berchtesgaden. On the way back we learnt a lot more, and even some German phrases (such as Schwieger Tiger)! A perfect introduction to a very enjoyable 3 days in Salzburg. Thoroughly recommended and well worth the money.

The primary parts of the tour - trips to Eagle’s Nest and to Salt Mines - were worthwhile. The problem I had with the tour were the “extras” thrown in. After the Eagle’s Nest we had Lunch in Berchtesgaden before going to the Salt Mines - all perfectly satisfactory and no problems there. However, after the Salt Mines, when in my mind the tour should have been over, we were taken to a Lake for an after lunch drink/shopping excursion scheduled for one hour. Then I learned that immediately following that one hour excursion we were to have another one hour excursion for coffee back in Berchtesgaden where we had already spent an hour for lunch earlier in the day. Huh? A one hour coffee break immediately after another one hour break at the same place we had already been earlier in the day? No thank you.

Dear Jonathan, Thank you for your message and taking your time dropping us a note. We are sorry we did not quite meet your expectations. However, if you book a super saver, this includes 3 individual tours for a great price reduction including entrance fee and priority lane; spending the whole day in the Bavarian Mountains without coming back to Salzburg in-between. However, this means also that there is some tour overlapping since the Eagle Nest Tour and the Salt Mine tour offer lunch breaks at Berchtesgaden. We do regret if this was not what you expected, but the full day was done as described on our website as a combination of three tours. Once again thank you for your feedback and we do hope to get another chance. With warmest regards, Your Salzburg Panorama Tours Tema

Starting off with a tour of the mountains our tour guide Walter was very informative about the mountain range. He had also a great pride in them.
The eagles nest was closed due to a thunder storm on the day of our tour but our guide gave an abbreviated account of the tour which sounded very interesting.
The salt mines were great. There were 2 shaft slides to go down and the tour was great for yong and old.
Do DO NOT wear a dres on this tour as you have to go on a little train that rerequires you to put your leg either side of the seat and also the 2 shaft slide are not really conducive to wearing a dress!!
The ground can be uneven, but there is good lighting on the tour.

Spent an enjoyable 4 hour trip exploring the Bavarian mountains by coach and visiting the salt mines via the pretty village of Berchtesgaden. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide called Walter who had a great sense of humour and gave us so much great information along the way. Our coach driver (Haki) was a great driver and we felt very safe whilst being driven up into the mountains. We shall definitely be back to do the Eagle's Nest tour.

This was a great morning out! A must of all ages.
Really well organised tour and professional would strongly recommend.
You are taken to a village before with the opportunity to have a coffee/ bear - go into village square for this and not the one they recommend as service was so slow we left .
A perfect morning out

It was a good way to mix up the usual sightseeing activities. Leo was both informative and entertaining. Everywhere we went he was greeted with affection and we felt like family! The mine was amazing with the weird train ride in and the slides and a boat rife’. The audio guide worked well and was informative. Leo really made the experience personalized. Thanks!
