Feel the history with a visit to Eagle's Nest

Beautiful views on a clear sunny day. I had a hard time understanding everything our guide Walter said because the microphone was muffled and his accent was heavy. We had a large group so he gave all the info on the bus before we set off on our own. I would have liked to walk through with the guide telling me about where I was standing. I googled to get more information about the Eagle's Nest. The stop for lunch was only an hour and that felt rushed.

Enjoyed the tour very much. Our tour guide Ann Marie was very knowledgeable and professional. The entire tour went smoothly to the Eagles Nest and it was a gorgeous view. Lunch stop in Berchtesgaden was a nice touch where we enjoyed a delicious German meal.

The tour and its location is great, definitely worth seeing. The tour guide (Walter) was witty and very knowledgeable. The trip was comfortable in the minibus and later in the city bus up the mountain. There was enough time for us in the eagles nest to explore and then have a cup of coffee with great view. Definitely would recommend:)

The visit up at the Eagle's Nest is really quick as the house is not that big. However the view is beautiful. The visit of the village was also nice. But what made the tour great was our guide. Had a lot of stories about the places and the history and also some useful tips in Salzburg.

Not a good experience

The food was just too awful, the worst we have had during our whole trip so far. The service was not friendly. We give the experience a three stars because of the performers’ effort, but would not recommend it to anyone.

Seamless tour as far as skip the line was concerned. Loved that! Very interesting tour and lovely views. Only had enough time to grab a bite in Berchtesgaden, so did not have a minute to explore the town. Overall a pleasant tour.

Our guide was great! Can't remember his name but he is the geography professor, lol. Perhaps a little more time on top would be good. But otherwise a great tour.

Excellent tour and the guides were incredibly friendly and helpful I am so happy that I went. Only feedback would be that I wish we were given more time at locations particularly for lunch as I felt rushed when trying to enjoy my meal.

Amazing experience! Being a part of the tour group allowed us to skip the line at the bus stop and not having to worry about driving up the very windy road to the bus stop was very helpful! If you want the ease and hassle free experience of visiting some of the most beautiful places, take this tour!

Great experience for our entire family. The company is very professional and knowledgeable about the area. Based on the normal price to get into the Eagles Nest - just a little expensive.

Skip the line was well worth it, as we did not need transport to the pickup area and the lines were long. The commentary on the bus was entertaining and informative. The view at Eagle's Nest was wonderful. This was a highlight of our trip to Germany.

The tour is a two faced tour since is an historical tour and also a sightseeing tour. For the historical part I am an history buff and I knew most of the history related to this place, the only more I needed to have was a visit. The view from the terraces are outstanding, they say that is possible to see 200 miles from there in a clear day...the view and the nest makes this tour a nice complement to a visit in the area
