This place was the sole reason for my vacation. The journey I took to reach this place came with a few sacrifices of rest and sleep but it was totally worth it. The beautiful journey starts from Vienna to this small village Hallstatt which is so awesome with snow-peaked Alps on both sides of the road , If you are lucky it might snow the whole day which makes it more beautiful (I was lucky enough) and mesmerizing experience. When you reach the village it's just so unreal that its jaw-dropping beauty. The famous picture of the village with alps moutions in the background is a must, this view was worth the sleepless night and spending the money on this tour. I had to make a run for it back and forth the bus because I was bit late , but worth spending every penny.

This tour is worth considering if you don't want to have to worry about where to go, and driving conditions. The guide kept us on time, although it felt rushed at our meal breaks/WC breaks along the way. The guide, Elena, was super knowledgeable about the region, and had great stories to share, suggestions on where to visit next time. Not sure I would go to Hallstaat if given the opportunity again. Felt like the local community is quite overburdened with tourists. I couldn't imagine living there, with the deluge of visitors they receive, and I went during Corona Virus fears had cut those numbers significantly.
