For some 450 years, visitors from around the world have been entering the Hallein salt mine, deep inside the Dürrnberg. Which makes the Hallein salt mine the first in history to open its tunnels to the public. All were fascinated by the mysterious subterranean world.

This was our first Private Tour using Viator. We have used Viator extensively, taking over 15 tours. Given this was a Private Tour, it was expensive. Really didn't know what to expect. Well, it was a GREAT experience. Viator used a local company called Salzburg Private Tours, which was somewhat confusing because I didn't understand that it was a company name at first. Anyway, our Guide/Driver, named Carlos (from Portugal) was simply AWESOME! He promptly showed up to pick us up at our hotel in a Mercedes Van (new and well maintained). He was polite, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Salzburg. On our journey to the Ice Caves (first stop), he shared his tremendous knowledge with us. Based on experience, we started with the Ice Caves to avoid the crowds and that was really smart. We were one of the first groups (second one) to tour the caves that day. When we came out, there were a lot of people queued up to get in. Then we went to the Waterfalls (Golling). It was a nice, short excursion. Nothing spectacular, but nice. Then on to the the Salt Mines. Again, their experience paid off as they took us to a salt mine that was in Austria and not the one used by major tour companies. didn't have to wait in line. Everything was perfectly timed and scheduled. He gave us flexibility to make any changes. We added a stop (on his recommendation) to take a Luge/ Toboggan run. That was a lot of fun. GREAT EXPERIENCE. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
3 into 1 !! we just loved it ! so many great memories and scenery
