    We had an amazing Christmas Day doing this tour. Our guide Daniel was fun, informative and really nice. The scenery was incredible and the sleigh ride everything you could imagine. Add to that powder soft snow, hot drinks and food and this tour was the ticket. Would highly recommend to anyone.

    This was a gorgeous tour and beautiful way to spend Christmas Day. Snow had fallen the night before so the little skiing village was covered in snow. Riding in the sleigh through the snow, with the horse bells ringing was just magical. So worth of the highlights of our trip

    This trip was amazing. You take a motor coach ride up to the mountains, have lunch and time for shopping, then get on the sleighs and bundle up in the blankets and go for 2 hour ride. It is chilly but the blankets and the stop for a hot chocolate make it a fabulous adventure. It is a winner!!!

    This was such a great thing to do on Christmas Day as we were far from home and family. It definitely put us in the Christmas spirit. Our host Daniel was very good with the right amount of stories and historical facts. The horses were beautiful and seemed to enjoy the ride as much as we did. The weather was so perfect as it had snowed the night before so it was a virtual winter wonderland.

    We took a sleigh ride the day after Christmas! The tour was well organized with plenty od tim for each activity...I never felt rushed even with two younger kids [7 and 9 years old). The sleigh ride itself was amazing and the highlight of our trip to Austria!

    Our family thoroughly enjoyed the horse-drawn sleigh ride in December 2017. The joy of riding on the snow at Christmas time, under the warmth of the blanket, was one of the highlights of our trip to Salzburg. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough.

    OMG - Breathtaking views. The bus trip to Ramsau was wonderful then seeing the horses and sleigh as we pulled into the parking lot was amazing. Our sleigh driver was very nice and helped us with a blanket, many times if checked to see if we needed anything to be more comfortable. He stopped several times to point out different photo ops and to let us play in the snow. One time we stopped for hot chocolate and he shared his mountain water. Anyone thinking about doing this ride should immediately book the trip. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about Austria. She made the bus ride interesting and even played special Austrian music for us on our way back to Salzburg. I will do this same excursion any time I am in Austria during the winter.

    Lovely experience. Well organised, Pleasant Tour Leader Lisa. Plenty of snow and the scenery was spectular. Lunch break of 2 hours too long if you aren't intending to ski. Ski hire reasonably priced and efficiently organised. Would I do it again? You bet!
