It was a Wonderful experience and we are very happy to participate!! Hallstatt is magnificent place, we wish we had more time! And Salzburg is also wonderful! Beautiful old town I think it would be better for us to skip Melk ( to early to visit the monastery) Overall it was a wonderful experience!!!

We did the private tour to Melk, Hallstatt and Salzburg on Christmas day and although it rained, it snowed and it was cold it was wonderful. The driver who was a guide was very kind and friendly, I would give him a ten. Without a doubt, I recommend this private tour to everyone.

really a relaxing excursion with a personable, funny guide who has a lot of knowledge and passes this on in an exciting and funny way. Thank you, the nice Leopold for the nice afternoon .. (the steirer)
