What people are saying about Gmunden

Well it was a very amazing experience I had in the entire journey. Properly planned and managed by the team, really appreciate. Hallstatt was mesmerising, if you have a single day with you in Austria-Vienna then I would strongly recommend to choose this one day tour. You need not have to research and find a way instead you just have to board the bus and the rest is taken care by the team.. I really didn’t get a chance to thank you Sofiya who was our instructor but I would request the team to convey my regard. She was amazing and kept up the energy till the end of the journey with so much of stories and information of Hallstatt, Vienna and Austria. Thank you Team for your wonderful efforts. I loved it :)

Good tour. All three stops were worthwhile for the scenery, especially Hallstatt. 3 hours in Hallstatt which gives you enough time to do the Skywalk, walk around the town and take a short boat trip if you like (pro tip the salt mine tour is 1.5 hours so it’s sort of a waste IMO) Guide was informative, took great photos, and the ride was comfortable. Only con for me was that the LandZeit pit stops for lunch and dinner were very overpriced and the food is poor quality. I would recommend this tour to others, especially if they’re unable make time for Salzburg on their Austria trip.

The bus was comfortable and our guide Sofie was great. We made stops along the way for food & bathroom. Once there we got our tickets right away for the skywalk and was able to go up the mountain immediately. At the top you can either take a quick elevator or a few stairs to the top. The views are incredible; something you will never forget. The small village of Hallstatt is charming and the shops & restaurants are everywhere. Be sure to bring cash because they do not accept cards. To see the painted skulls in st Michael’s church there are ALOT of stairs.

We had a very nice experience during our trip. Sofia our guide was a very polite and ready to help and/or answer any questions. She told us about the history of Austria and places we visited in details and also gave various advices about the city. Also driver was very good through the whole trip. Finally our group was always on time so no any delays in our journey.

Amazing views, the guide Dasha is awesome, we had a great time!
