Would have been 5 star but for no snow

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.

Hello, thank you very much for joining our private horse-drawn sleigh ride and for taking time writing this kind review! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed a great experience and that you were satisfied with our service! We are sorry the tour did not quite meet your expectations expecting more snow. Please note weather forecast in the Alps is very hard to predict and spring temperatures in December and January are beyond our control. We hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back on one of our tours in the near future! With best regards, your Salzburg Panorama Tours team

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 .

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.

Amazing Sleigh Ride through a winter wonderland

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.

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 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.
