Very scenic visit to Hallstatt. Our guide Peter was a wealth of information. I appreciate that he took different routes so we could see the countryside between Salzburrg and Hallstatt. The funicular was worth every euro. The views are breathtaking. We were lucky with the weather and had a beautiful day.

Might be better as a full day tour with the salt mine.
Praisie_H
, May 2022
Note that this is a big bus trip, many other buses are heading to Hallstatt too, but due to the pandemic the numbers are still quite reasonable. Best time to visit before the crowds come back again. Also I think it would have been better if they had combined this trip with the salt mine at the top of Hallstatt since we were going up anyway, and make it a full day trip. For this package you have to pay extra to take the funicular up to the viewpoint, where there is a salt mine as well. It's a good view of the lake and the towns below, but it's not the signature postcard shot of Hallstatt. The signature shot of Hallstatt can be found on google map as Aussichspunkt Hallstatt or google Haus Cian. From there you will take the classic shot of Hallstatt with the lake and the church tower.

Visiting this town is like taking a step back 60 years in time. Very pretty and clean! Loved just walking around and seeing the spring wild flowers and calm deep waters. Had a quick beer, flat pizza cracker and a cake! All delish!

Hallstatt is definitely worth the visits, one of the most picturesque places I’ve ever visited. Bus is definitely the quickest way to get there too.

I liked the tour guide a lot. He managed and explained everything in a nice manner. However, I would prefer full day trip (or longer than 5.5 hrs) to hallstatt.

I will not go there again
Cedric_C
, Apr 2022
I found it expensive for what it is. The tour itself cost 64 Euros. It was a big bus and the price of the funicular was not included (20 Euros) Hallstatt is not worth it. The funicular is a rip-off, twice 30 min queuing up. The view is ok, the wait and the price (20 Euros on top of the tour) made it unenjoyable. I was surprised to see that the price was only 10 Euros on the ticket. I had the feeling we paid the individual ticket and the tour guide negotiated a group price.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Dear Cedric Thank you for taking your time writing us feedback. We regret the tour did not meet your expectations as we get great reviews on the running of the tour. However please note, the tour is 1.5-hour drive to Hallstatt and you spend about 2.5 hours in the town itself. For our tour guests we offer optional a visit to the skywalk, which usually takes about 1 hour in total. We are sorry you had some waiting time, but Easter Weekend is very popular and busy time to travel. Regarding the pricing = adult is 20 Euro; child is 10 Euros. Our guides organize the tickets and hand out them afterwards for xy adults xy children. There were many bookings on that day and it seems you received a child ticket by mistake which may happen on busy days. Still, this is a service to our guests, there is no group rate for 10, - Euros. Please see the official website Hallstatt skywalk. Once again thank you for your feedback, we appreciate your time. With best regards, your Salzburg Panorama Tours team

The tour was great! Wolfgang was our guide and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend going up the mountain to the overlook point. Once you come down from there, take a little walk through the area along the river to get the view with the city on the side and the lake and mountains all around. It’s very worth it!

The only thing better then the beauty of hallstat; was our tour guide Mitch who was not only super knowledgeable on all things Austria (and beyond), but his personality made the trip an unforgettable experience. The tour itself lived up to the hype, even through the foggy haze and on/off rain. I’d highly recommend taking this half day tour from Salzburg for a breathtaking day. And if you’re lucky enough to have Mitch along for the ride; it’s a no brainer!!! @mitch I hope you invite us back when you finish putting together that smoker 😉

We had a great experience! Alenka our driver and tour guide was very knowledgable and also gave us tips for around Salzburg and Halstatt. Halstatt was beautiful! We had amazing weather and the two hour stop allowed us to roam around, visit the skywalk and even have a lunch in the square. Would definitely recommend!

Tour guide Woulfgang was very knowledgeable, polite and customer friendly. The 8 seater car used to take us around was nice and clean. The Hallstatt place in itself is very scenic and worth visiting. I would highly recommend this tour.

Great half day tour, just the right length to get a few hours in scenic Hallstatt. Recommend going up to the viewing platform and then taking a stroll into the village. Richard had great information both driving in and back, and kept us well organized!

We rode from Salzburg to Hallstatt with an amazing guide who shared Austrian history during our journey making the one an a half hour trip fly by. We arrived in Hallstatt and enjoyed some of the most beautiful scenery we have ever witnessed and delicious food from the village. I wish we could have spent more time there.

Our tour guide Mr. Lieapold was an extraordinary gentlemen. He was very knowledgeable about the city he live in and also Halstat where he drove us. Even though it was a little rainy Halstat is a beautiful place to see. We are very happy we had the opportunity to go. We will be back one day.

Perfect trip from Salzburg to Hallstatt. Bridgette was our guide and was pleasant and knowledgeable. The hours allotted for the trip was perfect. However, we did not do the option for the lookout. I think if we had done the lookout we wouldn’t have had sufficient time in the town. Great trip, would definitely recommend!
