I was hesitating about booking this trip but I'm so glad we went. Hallstatt is beautiful and the journey through the Salzkammergut region had some lovely views. I thought it was organised well and the coach was nice and comfortable. As we were staying in a fairly central location, they picked us up from our hotel. There were appropriately timed stops on the road and we were taken to some really good quality service stations. The first part of the journey there was some annoying classical music playing in the background but thankfully it was switched off for the rest of the journey. Our guide (I think her name was Cathy maybe) was really good and she was friendly.

Wonderful experience with nice Pitt stop at beautiful locations that made the long ride to Hallstatt enjoyable Hallstatt is totally worth tye trip and the skywalk shows the magnificent of Hallstatt beauty

It is a long day but worth every penny as the views are amazing and Hallstatt is just so Etching special to see with your own eyes. No You Tube videos do justice to the Skywalk views.

Everything was great, very good service! I traveled with my family, we are all very happy.️️⛰️️ Dear Thank you to all the staff

Amazing day trip. Highly recommend, worth the price. Hallstatt is the most beautiful place.
