    Our day with Luciano in Hallstatt was perfectly magical. While the weather certainly helped (snow for Australians is especially lovely) so did the company of our expert guide/driver, Luciano. Pickup was on time, and he kept us informed and entertained all the way to Hallstatt, allowing us opportunities to stop and take photos if we wished. At Hallstatt, he guided us to the best vantage points for pictures, pointed out things we otherwise wouldn’t have known or seen, and gave us time at our leisure to eat lunch and explore. Hallstatt is the most beautiful place, and well worth a visit, especially with Luciano to guide you.
