The tour was a great way to travel to Hallstatt, the guide was funny and informative. You get plenty of free time once in Hallstatt and can choose to do what you wish. You don’t however need to do this tour to visit Hallstatt you could make your own way there to explore.

Holstatt is beautiful and worrh taking the time to visit. 2-/2 hours was plenty of time to get a feel for the village and to enjoy the beautiful lake and mountains. The coach ride was very comfortable. Richard,!our guide, was very entertaining and made the ride fly by.

I cannot fault this one bit. Worth the money just to get the famous Hallstatt picture it was truly a fairytale to be there. Bus was impossible to miss and transport was smooth with some beautiful lakes and roads on route. Just over 2 hours was perfect for us enough time to sightsee and relax and take in the views. The meeting point to head home was easy to find- overall worth the money to visit one of the most beautiful villages
