This experience was EXCELLENT! The perfect way to learn about Hallstatt’s history and see the beautiful sites around the city. Edwin was so kind and captured the most beautiful images for us to remember our visit. He also gave helpful tips on restaurants and activities at the end of our experience. Highly recommend this tour to travelers where you are solo, a couple or a group - the photos and sights are worth it!

The best tour of my trip so far! Hallstatt is so, so beautiful and our guide, Richard, was fantastic- friendly, helpful and very informative. He sorted our tickets for the skywalk and even came up to each of the visitors on the bus to find out more about us- such a lovely man who really made the trip special!

Highly recommend this tour! The sky walk is definitely worth it! It takes about 45 minutes of your time in Hallstatt which leaves you plenty of time to walk through the village, grab food, and take lots of pictures!
