Best experience you can buy for money!! We had such an amazing day, this was so much more than what we expected. If you like to be outside in the nature and have a little adventure you have to try this. Also Wolfgang, our tour guide, was very nice and a fun guy, but most important, very professional and experienced so we never felt unsafe. We will come back for sure!!

Leo was our guide in the salt mines & it was an amazing experience where he took us through magical roads. we got lucky with the weather: early morning was completely snowy like a wonderland & later the sun came out & we could see different colors of Salzburg in the way back!

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.

This tour is definitely worth it. Inspite of the poor weather it was great fun.

Great experience, friendly staff, fun tour. A must do!
