This tour is worth considering if you don't want to have to worry about where to go, and driving conditions. The guide kept us on time, although it felt rushed at our meal breaks/WC breaks along the way. The guide, Elena, was super knowledgeable about the region, and had great stories to share, suggestions on where to visit next time. Not sure I would go to Hallstaat if given the opportunity again. Felt like the local community is quite overburdened with tourists. I couldn't imagine living there, with the deluge of visitors they receive, and I went during Corona Virus fears had cut those numbers significantly.

Our trip to Hallstatt was a great day and we had adequate time in the village if you opt out of the walking tour. The stop at Admont library was unique and a beautiful place we did not expect. Be prepared for a long day travelling from Vienna but it’s the sacrifice for seeing it all. Just wish the bus had wifi to pass some time!

From pick-up to drop-off the whole trip was excellent. The guide and driver were very professional. The guide had a very detailed knowledge of the history of the area. The only slight comment I would make on the bus is that it would be great if there were some usb charging points as my phone went very low and it would have been dreadful if I had missed out on taking as many photos as I would have liked. My phone had battery 1% remaining when we arrived back in Vienna. However, this is only an observation not a criticism and it did not in any way distract from our fantastic trip.
