What people are saying about Hallstatt

Luciano is a fantastic guide - very knowledgeable about the sights on the way from Salzburg to Hallstatt and the history. The car was also large and comfortable. Price is of course more than a group or semi-private tour, but well worth the money in our opinion. We had a wonderful day and would happily book with him and this company again!

Everything perfect, the beautiful trip and the guide Marian very nice and friendly. We didn't go to Melk to have more time in Salzburg.

The trip was great and our driver was charming. As a suggestion for planning, the time in Salzburg is a little short to enjoy it calmly.

Mr D, our tour guide cum driver, is very knowledgeable about the places we were visiting, he is friendly and professional in his field.

Sensational. Very clean car and very polite driver. Beautiful landscapes
