    Horse-Drawn sleigh ride was so magical like a fairytale. The drive to the mountains was so breathtaking. The tour lady was friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour.

    Great experience, though you need to read the fine print which says if there is no snow then this is just a horse ride through a pretty city. Which itself isn't an issue but you might as well do that on a group trip for 1/8 of the price, had there been snow it would have been worth the cost and time (the private tour and transport time, it's an hour and and a bit out of Salzburg). I had thought the hour drive was so that we were going somewhere that was most likely to have snow in December.

    Our family enjoyed the time out from traditional sightseeing activities to relax in the mountains on this charming sleigh ride. While there was just a dusting of snow on the ground when we went, hence the sleigh was pulled on wheels, we nonetheless enjoyed the brisk mountain air, the majestic peaks and the quiet stillness of the very small town we were riding through. After about an hour ride, our driver took us back to town via the tallest peak in the area. We enjoyed fantastic views and there was plenty of snow for the kids to have a snowball fight!

    I absolutely recommend this tour. It was definitely the highlight of our trip ! Luckily when we were there it was snowing and so the scenery was fabulous but snowing or not , it would be beautiful . Honestly it is expensive but worth the money for the memories . Beautiful Sherpa blankets keep you warm in the festive sleigh . The bells of the horses jingle too . I had read many reviews but I didn’t think it would be that good but it honestly is ! Another amazing part was stopping at a local cafe . Oh it was beautiful and to be honest there was so much Christmas cheer and feeling in there . It’s amazing to get out of the city , especially if you have children or even teenagers love this .

    The whole panorama tour was awesome. Our guide was superbly friendly and nice. We had an excellent ride on the horse sleigh.

    This was a wonderful experience with Joseph and his magnificent horses taking us through the fairyland area around Faistenau (just out of Salzburg). There was unusually little snow this year in the days just after Christmas but it still looked magical. A bonus was then Bern taking us via Schloss Fuschl Fisherei which was also interesting and great to see.

    Picked up from our accommodation and taken for a half-hour drive through dramatic scenery by our friendly and informative driver Franz. The sleigh was waiting for us and we were taken through the beautiful peaceful scenery by our driver and 2 beautiful Hungarian 'war horses'. Kids got to run around in the deep snow. We all loved it, would recommend.
