    The trip was well organized. Unfortunately a bit tight in terms of time, as there were many program items. Maybe you could take the boat trip in Hallstatt of about 20 minutes. omitting. I found this rather a bit boring. But otherwise a nice day trip with many interesting stories from the region.

    A very pleasant day in a magnificent setting

    Transport by good quality bus, however, little supply on site: a funicular ticket, a fairly short crossing of Lake Hallstatt. By cons a quality guide. The value for money is more modest than for example the Vienna-Bratislava cruise with meal: 119 euros on one side (Hallstatt) against 49 on the other (Cruise)

    It’s a long tour. Left at 7 am and came back at 20.30, with no stopping when we returned for a quick bite or a wc break. Hallstatt is really crowded in august, tourists everywhere, long waiting line for the funicular and an accident on the highway left us no free time to eat or enjoy a beer at a terrace. Thumbs up for our guide Conrad who did the best to have a great day
