We had an amazing Christmas Day doing this tour. Our guide Daniel was fun, informative and really nice. The scenery was incredible and the sleigh ride everything you could imagine. Add to that powder soft snow, hot drinks and food and this tour was the ticket. Would highly recommend to anyone.

This was a gorgeous tour and beautiful way to spend Christmas Day. Snow had fallen the night before so the little skiing village was covered in snow. Riding in the sleigh through the snow, with the horse bells ringing was just magical. So worth it....one of the highlights of our trip

This trip was amazing. You take a motor coach ride up to the mountains, have lunch and time for shopping, then get on the sleighs and bundle up in the blankets and go for 2 hour ride. It is chilly but the blankets and the stop for a hot chocolate make it a fabulous adventure. It is a winner!!!

We took a sleigh ride the day after Christmas! The tour was well organized with plenty od tim for each activity...I never felt rushed even with two younger kids [7 and 9 years old). The sleigh ride itself was amazing and the highlight of our trip to Austria!

This was such a great thing to do on Christmas Day as we were far from home and family. It definitely put us in the Christmas spirit. Our host Daniel was very good with the right amount of stories and historical facts. The horses were beautiful and seemed to enjoy the ride as much as we did. The weather was so perfect as it had snowed the night before so it was a virtual winter wonderland.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the horse-drawn sleigh ride in December 2017. The joy of riding on the snow at Christmas time, under the warmth of the blanket, was one of the highlights of our trip to Salzburg. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough.

OMG - Breathtaking views. The bus trip to Ramsau was wonderful then seeing the horses and sleigh as we pulled into the parking lot was amazing. Our sleigh driver was very nice and helped us with a blanket, many times if checked to see if we needed anything to be more comfortable. He stopped several times to point out different photo ops and to let us play in the snow. One time we stopped for hot chocolate and he shared his mountain water. Anyone thinking about doing this ride should immediately book the trip. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about Austria. She made the bus ride interesting and even played special Austrian music for us on our way back to Salzburg. I will do this same excursion any time I am in Austria during the winter.

We did our sleigh ride on New Years Eve in brilliant sunshine, just as our guide - Walter - had promised. It was a wonderful experience, which we will never forget. There was snow as far as the eye could see and on our two hour sleigh ride we passed skiers, villages and chalets. The lunch break in the middle of the ride allowed us to warm up over a hot meal and catch up with some of the other sleigh-riders. Thanks to Walter and all his associates for making this the highlight of our trip to Austria.

We did this trip on New Years Eve and we had a really magical day made even better because we were lucky enough to have our sleigh ride almost entirely in snow The sleigh ride was a round trip of around 2 hours including a half hour stop for coffee or in our case just walking in the snow looking at the brilliant views. The views on the journey from Salzburg were great and made the journey go quite quickly Our guide Walter helped with his informative and at times funny narrative After our sleigh ride we had a couple of hours in Ramsau for lunch and a walk There was some confusion over lunch arrangements as there was a large party on the trip who had lunch included whilst the rest of us didn't This wasn't made clear as we were all lead up to the same restaurant and then split into separate dining rooms The journey home was non stop so we were soon back in Salzburg ready for the NYE celebrations

we had the most amazing christmas day in Ramsau! The village was beautiful, our horseman was the sweetest and most warm-hearted, constantly sharing information of the village to us, telling us stories and chatting with us. And, snow fell at the most magical moment on Christmas day! It was truly an amazing way to spend our day, seeing landscapes and mother nature in person.

The bus drive up through the Austrian Alps was just beautiful! What a way to spend Christmas Day!
This tour was so well organised - when the bus arrived at our destination, waiting for us was a long line of horses with their sleighs! With snow on mountain tops only, our sleigh ride was just magical!

does it get any better than taking a horse-drawn sleigh through the Alps!? it brings new meaning to the Christmas tune..."dashing through the snow, in a 2-horse open sleigh"! we had an absolutely amazing time. the only slight bummer is you share the sleigh with 6 people, so you may not get to sit in front, as you have to keep the same seats the whole time based on weight distribution. BUT, you're getting gorgeous views of the Alps and Ramsau/Dachstein no matter what. plus you get to make a nice stop for a gluhwein und kuchen!

Wonderful experience and fabulous scenery all covered in snow. Surreal, felt a bit like a character in a snow dome.

We did the trip on St. Stephens Day. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There wasn't the snow that we thought we were going to have but that had nothing to do with organiser. The weather is the weather. We had an enjoyable dayand would go on sleigh ride again. Very well organised.
