taxy picked me and my son from the hotel to the meeting point, which was very comfortable. the bus was great and very spacious. our travell guide was nice and pro and the ride was interesting, we had i stop on each direction on very expensive restaurants. the cruise was short but beautifull, like al of our stay in halstat.

Highly recommended!

The trip was super interesting and well planned. Tour guide Maikl was very hard-working and helpful. On the way we also visited Schloss Ort, which was a great surprise (not included in the description)! The bus driver was also very professional and knew the area very well. The bus is very comfortable and easy to drive. The price not only includes a return trip but also a 20min boat trip on Lake Hallstatt and cable car entry to the Skywalk Hallstatt! Great price / performance ratio! The most important thing: the weather has to be right, otherwise the experience is completely different :) Many thanks to everyone :)))

The trip was well organized. Unfortunately a bit tight in terms of time, as there were many program items. Maybe you could take the boat trip in Hallstatt of about 20 minutes. omitting. I found this rather a bit boring. But otherwise a nice day trip with many interesting stories from the region.
