What a great trip! The driver drives so professionally. The van for taking passengers is really good, I feel so comfortable the whole trip despite being on this for 4 hours. Ms tour guide is nice as well, given the ability to speak many languages fluently at the same time to convery information for passengers. Hallstatt is like a fairy tales.

We had a wonderful experience with Alenka today. She went out of her way to make our trip wonderful. She is full of energy and has excellent knowledge of the city, its culture, and history. Would most certainly recommend this tour to anyone

Really loved the tour and the guide-Alenka!! Highly recommend her if you’re looking forward to book one. But it could have been better if it was a little longer and not just for half day during the peak season. But overall it was great!!
