Edwin was a brilliant tour guide and photographer. I loved the whole experience of learning about the town, seeing all the hidden spots and taking pictures at all the must do and unique perspectives. It was really comfortable and Edwin gave great guidance on posing and positioning for the awesome candid shots. I can highly recommend this tour, it’s most certainly worth it for the private, local experience and the photos!

Great day and fantastic photowalk with Edwin. He took us all over Hallstatt lovely photo spots which is impossible to make it if we come here as normal tourist. Lucky! Today’s weather is nice therefore the photos turn out to be such a romantic mood and suits to Hallstatt. We must be miss Hallstatt so much every time we see the photos. Thank you Edwin!

I enjoyed the walk and tour with Edwin; he's a wealth of information about Hallstatt and the Hallstätter See region. And he of course takes great photos -- I've received dozens of compliments on my social media posts featuring his photography.

Wonderful time with Edwin showing us around the town. The pictures also turned out great. Overall highly recommend.
