It was a great experience. I thought it would just be a ride back and forth to Hallstatt but Leopold (the guide) gave a huge history lesson about Salzburg and Hallstatt. He even does a different route when we are coming back to see different scenarios. Hallstatt is one of the most beautiful places I have been in my life. Don`t miss the opportunity to go.

Beautiful little town, would opt for a longer tour (FULL DAY) if available. Total Duration of the tour was 5.5hrs, journey alone is 1.5hr (one way), that leaves 2.5hrs for sightseeing. As there was long queue to the Skywalk, we had to give this a miss. Went on Christmas day, many shops are closed but some restaurants are still open. The Bone House was closed, a pity. Overall still a very scenic and beautiful little town. Nice!

Would definitely recommend this day trip - it was well worth the drive! It was easy and convenient to take the bus. The bus was clean and new. The guide gave lots of commentary along the way which was very interesting. The town itself was surpassed our expectations, we just loved it.
