Easily our favorite thing we did while in Austria. We had the best time in the salt mines and our tour guide, who took us to and from the mine, was incredible as well. It was nice having everything set up for us so that all we had to worry about was showing up that morning.

Fun salt mine tour! Great for the whole family. A little bit of walking. Informative. Nice that there are options for those who don’t want to slide.

I would highly recommend this tour. It was very informative and entertaining. The slides were fun, the boat ride was short but nice.

Tour guide was great. The weather was great. Everything was taken care of and you get to skip the line.

Our family really had a great time on this tour. The train and slide were awesome.
