We enjoyed the trip a lot - was exactly what we wanted: to see the Lake District and have a walk in Hallstatt, to see the beautiful scenery. The guide was super nice: informative enough and has a delightful sense of humor. The only disappointment was that the skywalk was closed - if this is something important for you, you might prefer to check and chose another time. But there was another option where you could have a great view. Some tips: - please read the description - it’s very accurate. - take left side on the bus as most of the scenic spots are on the left side. - get water in advance as it’s 1,5h ride one way.
This was a great tour, taking us from Salzburg to Hallstatt. Our guide (Richard) and driver (Zoran) were wonderful, with great driving and knowledgeable information provided. The bus was clean and had charging ports. A ride up the funicular to the viewing platform in Hallstatt was not included (which we knew when booking), but the guide collected money from us whilst we were on bus and organised tickets for us, which was wonderful and made it hassle free. We had a good amount of time to both go up to the viewing platform and explore the quaint little town. I would definitely recommend.
The highlight was Hallstätt and this was an incredible place to be. The only downside is the limited amount of time (2.5 hours) which is not enough if you want to do all the activities and visit all the nice viewpoints. The rest of the tour was average with nice scenery during the drive and a good stop at Wolfgang lake however not much else going on. All in all, it was a good tour!
Fantastic tour. We took the advice of a previous reviewer and sat on the left hand side of the bus. the views were amazing. The guide was an elderly German man who knew his facts and had a great sense of humor. We would recommend bringing something to eat with you as to not lose time in beautiful Hallstatt waiting for food.
Great time, although I spent a lot more money than I thought I would. On top of that the cost for the tour is rather expensive, but depending on who is attending it could be worth it. Our guide Karl was very knowledgeable and so friendly!
