Exactly what I was hoping for, and more
, Aug 2022
Perfect daytrip, guide, destination and overall experience. The trip starts with a lengthy bus trip, where the knowledgeable and surprisingly entertaining guide spoke at length about the historical background, regional and national importance of Hallstatt. We made pit stops at nice venues. Arrived in Hallstatt well informed so as to enable a breathtaking and effective walk-about. It was exhaustingly beautiful. I have no complaints, and no suggestions how to make it better, other than do it for free and promote the guide to salt gentleman and give him more money.
One of the best day trips you can take from Vienna
, Jul 2022
Its a great day trip to take from Vienna. Hallstatt is gorgeous, the drive getting there is amazing and special mention for our super helpful, witty, enthusiastic and knowledgable guide of the day, Ava.

Great hotel pickup option Very punctual Guide (Eva) knowledgeable, approachable and professional - great Guide! She catered for us not wanting to visit the town but went to the salt mines right after the boat trip to Hallstadt (we made it just in time!) Morning option for breakfast - excellent Afternoon dinner option - rubbish salad bar ( only bad point really) Overall an excellent day trip and a memorable experience
Beautiful Day in the Alps and on the Lake
, Jul 2022
The bus ride through the countryside with view of the Alps was lovely. The guide gave us descriptions of the sites we were seeing in Vienna and on the road. I skipped the walking tours and just enjoyed the cruise around the lake-it was a beautiful day. We saw a pair of swans with their 6 cygnets swimming nearby! I got off and feed the ducks. The stops for Breakfast and Dinner were at a wonderful Austrian themed restaurant. that also had snacks. All around a great day!

Best experience
, Jul 2022
The tour guide was great explain the history of this beautiful place. Hallstatt is exactly as you see in the pictures. Bring a umbrella or raincoat because it tends to rain a lot. And have cash with you since they don't take credit card unless you spend more than 10€. And coins to pay for the public bathroom.
A must do day trip from Vienna
, Jun 2022
Great trip, a must do from Vienna! It’s a beautiful place and our guide Alexander was great. 3 suggestions for improvement: -Don’t offer pick up points from your hotel when they are clearly not available. -stop off at the beautiful lake just after half way even for just 15 minutes. -fewer stories about salt! 🤣
Hallstatt is simply stunning!
, Jun 2022
Literally one of the most beautiful places I have ever been in my life. The views were stunning. The funicular offered incredible views of the lake and mountains. I would highly recommend this to everyone.
