    Very nice tour and definatly everyone should visit the city! There is a lot of picturesque views, the village has unique charm and character Trip was well organized. Bus was spacious and clean. There was a lot of information given to us on the way to Hallstatt

    Very nice comfortable coach for the trip. Had a very good driver. Felt very safe. But there was someone special in the tour. And it was our tour Guide SOFIIA.

    Sofiia was an amazingly friendly and nice guide on my tour. She helped me to click the pictures even. And she was so good in speaking nice English with all of us. She even called my whats app number while I was late and engaged in boat ride. Sofiia is a such a smart and nice ... I have already recommended this tour and specially Sofiia.

    Great Day and Great Tour indeed. wish to go again... need to stay at night

    Thanks SOFIIA

    Markus is an amazing guide! He had a lot of interesting facts about the history and culture of Austria to share. Albeit the very long ride from Vienna to Austria, the journey was very fun!

    Anna is also very knowledgeable, sharing with us history and origin of different things in Hallstatt, highlighting to us things that she personally like.

    This tour is more than I could ever ask for. Am very happy I joined it!

    We wanted to try something a little different and happened upon this trip. We had a fantastic little tour group that was a veritable United Nations! Our group members hailed from all parts of the world and got along famously!

    All transportation is covered from the Vienna Explorer home base in Vienna and we travelled by U-Bahn and then the Train to Krems on the Danube where we picked up our bikes. These bikes were so very comfortable and of excellent quality! We cycled approximately 15-20 km and stopped several times for some history lessons of the area and pictures!

    The cycling is along pathways parallel to Danube and through the vineyard towns. This is not a difficult cycle tour and so worth it. I’m not a wine connoisseur at all (more of a gin and tonic kinda gal) but it was an adventure! We stopped at 3 different wineries a d probably tasted 12-15 varieties (I lost count).

    We had tons of laughs, had a chance to swim in the Danube (don’t forget to bring a swimsuit as we did so we dipped our feet into the river instead) and learned alot of the Wachau Valley and the history behind the area. Our tour guide, Tomas was fantastic and has endless knowledge of the area!

    Overall well worth it and a must if you want to see something beyond the Inner Stadt!

    The tour was great. I got to visit many top attractions in the city in a short period of time. Our guide Balazs was very nice and knowledgeable.

    The Abby complex was far too vast for only 30 minutes to explore. The crowds in Hallstatt made for long lines for everything, so the 2.5hours there was somewhat frantic. I advise not to go on the weekend.

    The vistas and view were stunning and all was so worth seeing. Bus ride was very comfortable, except driver should turn on air conditioning while we are boarding instead of waiting till everyone was onboard. Those who show up on time get to sit and shelter waiting for the stragglers.

    Our tour guide, whose name I forget, was very pleasant and made the drive time more interesting.

    Need more time at the first stop in Durnstein. Rest of the trip was good but it started off feeling rushed.

    Our trip from Vienna to Salzburg through the Lake Region was a wonderful experience. Our driver, Rui, was a competent pleasant, knowledgeable and caring driver and guide on the way to Salzburg and back, and our guide in Salzburg, Leisl, a native of the city, was equally competent, pleasant, knowledgeable and caring. The tour vehicle was clean, comfortable and furnished with Wi-Fi, iPads, and bottled water. This tour was a highlight of our week in Vienna. In advance of the trip, the many, many positive reviews on Tripadvisor and other sites made us wonder if the trip could be as good as the reviewers claimed, but it was indeed an excellent trip and we highly recommend it.

    We explored the Wachau valley with Thomas. He graciously guided us through the wineries and to a great restaurant in St. Michael. He was exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful. We were also able to explore Durnstein old town. Every element was exceptional. Thank you Thomas for great day in Austria.

    We booked our day trips around Austria and other neighboring cities with White Alligators. Overall we had a wonderful experience, we had Peter as our driver 3 times and Balasz once and both were awesome, they’re very knowledgeable in regards to the history and customs of Austria and the places we visited. They were also punctual in picking us up from our hotel then dropping off after the tours. They also laid out the itinerary in an organized way so we know how to expect. They were very friendly and approachable too so you don’t feel intimidated to ask questions and they spoke very good English. There local guides such as Dale in Salzburg, Christiana in Hallstat, and Tatiana in Prague were knowledgeable and approachable. Overall we had a great experience with them and I’d highly recommend them to anyone who plans on exploring Austria and it’s surrounding neighbors!

    It would have been a great trip if there would have been options for those that weren’t able to walk as far. The tour was also rain or shine but everyone was required to leave the bus.

    Davor was the best tour guide. I had the most amazing experience. He was so cool and friendly showing me around the best parts of Austria. He didn't rush me and was very informative, professional, and punctual. I will definitely be coming back.

    Salzburg was amazing, beautiful and old city with so much culture and history, wish we could have stayed longer. The drive through the scenic countryside was very relaxing.

    A long day -- 8 AM till 7:30, Armand, our driver, was very good -- on the way out., he gave us lots of interesting history & facts. He has a somewhat heavy Russian accent that was difficult to understand at first -- when speaking in person, it was much easier. I realized that he holds the mike too close to his mouth -- he needs a bit of training there. Our local guide in Salzburg was Natasha -- again very good and excellent English. We were a small group (7), but it was still sometimes hard to hear her -- would have been nice to have those earphones other groups seemed to have so you could be a bit away and still hear her narration. She was great in that she asked the group "Sound of Music" or Salzburg -- and most of us wanted Salzburg -- so we got the best of both worlds and she was very knowledgeable about the city.
    My only criticism would be the stops -- one 1/2 way there at @ 9;30 AM and the other half way back - both for @ 30 minutes. The problem was that when we got to Salzburg, we immediately went on tour and didn't have time for lunch until 3:30 PM. I would suggest 10 min pit stops going and coming and an hour for a quick lunch upon arrival in Salzburg.

    Well hosted, truly beautiful daytrip.

    Both the trip itself, up through the alps, was a sight to behold. All the while taught the long, interesting and influential history of Hallstatt. And the actual stay in Hallstatt- were truly 5/5.

    We did have perfect weather, which may have influenced the experience further.

    We recieved well rounded advice from out tour guide regarding what was possible, how to time the excursion, even which ATMs were trustworthy.

    The tour included a stop at a road house en route, arrival, a boat tour across the lake, and approximately three hours of roaming with no further guidance.

    The only caution I would raise, is that it is an expensive excursion. But I'm sure most would expect that anyways.
