The tour was nice, Norbert was very kind, polite and patience. He fetch us with VW Phaeton which was a comfortable car, clean and well maintained. In total the tour was 14 hours just to see Hallstatt and Salzburg. He never counting on the hours. He just keep going and entertained us. Show us many things and explained it well. He brought us to the good Italian restaurant in Salzburg, he knew good food too.

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.
