What a great trip! The driver drives so professionally. The van for taking passengers is really good, I feel so comfortable the whole trip despite being on this for 4 hours. Ms tour guide is nice as well, given the ability to speak many languages fluently at the same time to convery information for passengers. Hallstatt is like a fairy tales.

Great day in a just beautiful village (despite the long journey it's really worth it), the boat ride and the climb to the point of view are really to do, I highly recommend!
