The drive was long, especially since the bus driver hast to take a 30 minute break every two hours, but the beauty in Hallstatt was worth it. The tour guide will give you a tour of Hallstatt, but it doesn’t include anything up near the skywalk. Would be awesome if that was included.

The tour was very hassle free with the hotel pick up option to bring you to the meet up point since the tour starts early. It provides you with safety. At the beautiful Hallstatt, you are given enough time to explore the whole place with your given free time. However, I did not like the stop overs for meals both in the morning and afternoon. There is only one restaurant to choose from, no other option and both were quite pricey if you are on a tight budget or if you don’t feel like eating because you’re still full. What makes it more sad is that you can’t stay in the bus while waiting for others. It took so much time like an hour for every stop over which I think can be spent more productively. Other than that, the tour is good for me.

I enjoyed my tour to Hallstatt from Vienna. They took us to a self-service brunch and dinner place that was delicious and I thought the time we were in Hallstatt was enough to explore the beautiful little town. My only suggestion would be to hit the funicular/skywalk first and then visit the town to save yourself time and beating the crowd once you arrive. The drive to Hallstatt was beautiful as well. Highly recommend this tour if you would like to visit Hallstatt from Vienna!
