    Lugar de sonho. Indescritível. Carlos nosso guia foi fantástico e muito gentil. Paisagem exuberante.

    The entire experience was excellent! The views are amazing. The town is quaint and the salt mine is a do not miss experience! Michael, our tour guide, was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and patient. He knows every detail and tells great stories. The salt mine is a unique experience. 300 feet down into an active salt mine you will learn the history of salt discovery and production. There are even a couple slides you can ride as the old miners did back in the day! The funicular to the mine gives you a full view of Hallstatt and the area. Very beautiful especially when looking from above down. Our driver, Luciano, did a good job was also entertaining. Even more fun when Michael and Luciano bantered with us. Feel like they are our friends now!

    I was so happy to splurge on a private driver Michael Toth who took for an 8 hr. day to Hallstatt with stops made along the way and back. We would never have known about or seen all the beautiful places and facts about where we visited. Michael was worth every dollar. With such a surprise ending I got my bucket list and many great tears.

    I found this amazing adventure and scheduled it as a birthday gift for my husband. My mother in law, my husband and I loved the tour. Our tour guy Michael was amazing and so was our driver. Michael is knowledgeable and experienced. Thank you for helping me making the best birthday gift! If you are wanting to visit Hallstatt you should consider this tour. Is well worth it! Michael will take you around areas that you won’t find on your own if you go by yourself. Thank you Michael and driver , sorry I can’t remember the name. You are great at what you do! Take care, Ony

    This was the best tour I have taken thus far! We were very lucky that the weather was great, even though the forecast was rain. So we were able to take many pictures of the absolutely magnificent views - from the scenic drive, to post-card-perfect Hallstatt, to the "hills are alive" mountains of Dachstein and the glaciers and lake views at Gosau. Our guide, Luciano, was so warm and friendly. He went out of his way to accommodate the seniors and child in our group. He was also very knowledgeable. If I could, I would give this tour 10 stars!

    Our trip was actually on Dec 20th, 2017. Sorry for my delay in reviewing since we were still on our vacation. The trip was amazing, salt mining was very fun, Gosausee was stunning, and Hallstatt was breathtaking. We were lucky to have Carlos as our tour guide. He was funny and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this trip and you will be lucky if Carlos is your tour guide.
