What to expect
Your day tour departs from central Salzburg, where you meet up with your guide and venture by coach to the Alpenstrasse, traveling along the King's Lake River. After a scenic drive, arrive at the salt mines and step into authentic miners' gear. As you enter, learn the history and local lore buried deep within this 450-year-old underground world. Travel down to the grottos on the same slides used by the miners and enjoy a thrilling descent! Explore the hidden terrain with a raft sail across the famous salt lake before making your way back up to the surface. After your adventure in the salt mines, take off on your 'Sound of Music' tour. Led by an expert guide, re-live your favorite scenes with stops at Mondsee to see the wedding church, as well as the Mirabell Gardens, the famous place where the children sang ‘Do-Re-Mi’ with Maria. As you drive from each location, sing along to the celebrated songs from the film, including 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen,' 'Edelweiss' and the cherished classic 'The Sound of Music'. You also have a chance to learn more about Salzburg’s rich history and architectural gems while you sightsee, and enjoy views of the stunning lake district.

Worth it!
Oct 2019 • Solo
The salt mines I could’ve skipped. I would suggest just doing the Sound of Music tour which is why I scored this as a 4 on the scale. The salt mines were average, but it was a German tour guide so I had to use a translator radio thing. Not a big deal, but my device, as well as others in my group, were not working, so I couldn’t understand what was going on or the information being shared. A lot of a light show with dramatic music than I’d anticipated.

On top of that, I’m not sure if the tour for the Eagle’s Nest excursion was overbooked or what. Apparently there was a full bus for the Eagle’s Nest, and since we had room on our salt mine bus, their spillover came with us to Berchtesgaden Salt Mines. So, we had to take a detour and take them all up to drop them off at their site. Then we went to our excursion and had 80 minutes (which is what it is for everyone I was told). Then we had to go back up the mountain to pick up the Eagle’s Nest people. After that, we went and spent about 45 minutes in the town of Berchtesgaden, which was totally fine by me, I just didn’t realize that was a part of the tour. We were back by 2:00pm for the Sound of Music Tour though.

Christina was my tour guide on the Sound of Music Tour and she was fantastic! By the end, we really were all freely singing along to the soundtrack and she was so knowledgeable. I learned many facts I hadn’t heard before! I smiled most of the tour and left in a good mood. I wouldn’t change anything about that part of the day.

Loved the first half
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Panorama Tours to the salt mines. That was wonderful. The bus was clean and air conditioned. The driver and guide were great. Lots of information and laughs. The salt mine was good, but I would have enjoyed more time to see and understand. We felt very rushed going through the mine. The train and slides were a blast. We also enjoyed the little town where they took us for lunch. We did not love the Sound of Music Tour. The bus was very warm and we felt cramped. Our guide did her best but it was not what we were expecting. I am not blaming anyone, I am just saying we expected more. More time to visits the locations instead of driving by and more locations, like the opening scene, which we did not see. I would definitely recommend the Salt Mine tour but the Sound of Music tour I would only recommend for the hard core fan.

Just a great day in Austria
Jun 2019 • Couples
If you have a couple of days in Salzburg this is a great way to spend one of them. The morning salt mines tour includes a stop at an area where you can get a good view of the infamous Eagle's Nest. The tour guide did a very good job of explaining the background of the area and the fact that it was used extensively by the SS for casual time. Things like guard stations and bunkers are still visible. The tour of the salt mines was interesting and informative also. Kids will like it because you get a ride on a small train through the tunnels, a barge across an underground lake and a couple of slides from level to level in the mine just as the original miners would have done. The only thing I was not pleaased with was that all of the dialogue was done here by recordings instead of the guide. That made the trip a little impersonal.
After the mine, we stopped at a little village, Berchtesgaden, where we could stroll the old town or have a little lunch at the tour guides favorite restaurant, the Golden Bear (Goldener Baer). It was a nice break, the food was good and the service quick. It got us prepared for the trip back to Salsburg and the afternoon Sound of Music Tour. There is not much time between the two.
The Sound of Music tour was a hoot. We had such a good time learning about the movie and seeing the sights that were in the film (not to mention the compulsory verse or two of "Doe, a deer..."). We had a total of four stops but many more drive-bys of things that I had seen the day before touring on our own but did not recognize until the guide mentioned the tie-in. The highlights were the church where the wedding was held (in the movie) in Mondsee, and the actual gazebo that has been moved to a safe site at the Schloss Hellbrunn. The scenery in the lake district was phenomenal.
I would recommend this combo package or one of the others that includes the Sound of Music as your tastes dictate. There is a fair degree of walking. Panorama Tours did a very good job but be aware that the bus can load up to half an hour early so if you want to get a good seat with a window or near an exit you should get there before that advertised starting time.

Dear Terry H, thank you very much for joining our tours and for taking time to write this kind and detailed review! We are very happy to hear that you were satisfied with our guides and our services. With regard to the dialoge done by records: the process of the tour inside the salt mine falls to the salt mine operator. Salzburg Panorama Tours is unable to change this. We are glad that you enjoyed our Salt Mine Tour and our Original Sound of Music Tour so much and hope to welcome you again soon. Kind regards from Salzburg, Salzburg Panorama Tours, Customer Care

Glad I did this
Jul 2018
So glad we decided to do a trip to the salt mines, totally different to my idea of salt mining, I had visions of open spaces with mounds of salt, not going into a cave and seeing water lakes and learning how they extract the salt, was so interesting.
