Everything was excellent in terms of transportation, guide and stops along the way. Just a small thing to consider - the town itself is beautiful in this respect there is no doubt. But it is very small, the food is expensive and not the most delicious there is and the wait on the way back from the sky lift is very long. Overall a nice trip but no more than that. In terms of get your guide everything was great, only the town feels a bit like a tourist trap and maybe it's not worth the money.

Despite the fact that you spend a lot of time on a bus, it was totally worth it. We enjoyed the trip 100% and would recommend it to others. I wish I could stay at Hallstatt! Thanks to our guide and bus driver for this amazing experience! One love!

Exellent value for money, could not have made it any affordable myself. Our guide Sofia was very knowleable.
