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.

Highly recommend going with them on this trip, very well organized with great stops on the way for relaxing and for photo taking. Very well organized, and good time in Hallstatt at a great price. The guide was great explaining every detail of the trip and sites we were going to.

Everything was excellent in terms of transportation, guide and stops along the way. Just a small thing to consider - the town itself is beautiful in this respect there is no doubt. But it is very small, the food is expensive and not the most delicious there is and the wait on the way back from the sky lift is very long. Overall a nice trip but no more than that. In terms of get your guide everything was great, only the town feels a bit like a tourist trap and maybe it's not worth the money.
