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

    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.

    Best trip we went on

    Peter took us to the nearby town, and you'll want to ask for him specifically. We were so glad he was our guide on another tour we booked through the same company. We were at the very end of the season in mid-March, so while there was ample snow, we were in a carriage with wheels, not a sleigh, which we fully expected. The countryside was picturesque, and the guide, who owns the carriage and the horses, was full of information but not so chatty that we couldn't enjoy the ride. This is something you'll do once in a lifetime, so DO IT!

    Christmas time in Salzburg is something that you must experience at least once in your life. I have been in Salzburg three times, one during the summer and two during the winter. There are several things to do but I specially will recommend the fortress and Mozart concert and the midnight Christmas mess at the cathedral not only for the mess itself but also because at the end they sing Silent Night in such a way that you feel transported. This time we had Christmas dinner at the restaurant sHerzl and was excellent. Other tour that was excellent was the Private Horse Drawn Ride

    Wonderful experience at the farm and tour thru the picturesque village. Beautiful Hungarian matched pair pulling our sleigh. The owner was very personable and informative.
    Our tour guide was a wonderful young man who drove us thru the lake district and pointed out the cathedral in Mondsee where the wedding scene in The Sound of Music was filmed. He was full of fun facts and very polite and professional.
    All in all one of the highlights of our trip.

    This tour was amazing!

    This was the best activity we did in Austria. Amazing Amazing!! To make it even more magical it was snowing the whole time. They give you duvet to try keep you warm. My advice to cover up as much as you can. You get picked up from your hotel and taken to the mountains, where they sleigh ride begins. The tour guide was amazing, stopped a few times for us to take some pictures to. Expensive but worth it.

    We were very excited to do this especially as it had been snowing for three days and there was lots of snow around. The guide and sleigh driver were really lovely people and worked hard to make sure we had a good time. We enjoyed the hour long trip which took us through a small village and some stunning countryside. The sleigh actually looked like a sleigh and that looks great in our photos. The only disappointment was that the 'sleigh' never got off the track which meant we were always on wheels not 'sleighing' as we'd hoped. Know it's hard on the horses but a short burst on the runners would have taken this rating to a 5.
