Our most horrible tour ever!
Ernest_v
, Jul 2022
The guide was slow in everything he did and repeated the same requests more than four times every time. The microphone in the bus was working intermittently, and the guide had no clue how to fix it or to put it on correctly. When we got to the cable car, het took 30 minutes to get the tickets, although there was no queue. This left us with less than an hour to walk through Hallstadt. The tour is simply too short, and should be lengthened by at least an hour or an hour and a half. There was now time to visit the salt mines or the waterfall. The tour was a horrible experience, the worst we ever had.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Dear Ernest Thank you for taking your time writing us a review. We are sorry if the tour did not meet your expectations Our 5.5-hour tour runs daily from 12:00 hrs, the drive is 1.5 hours one-way. Going to Hallstatt we pass Lake Wolfgang, Lake Fuschl and other science landscapes. On our way back we take a different route via breath-taking Gosau, Abtenau etc. … The stay in Hallstatt is about 2.5 hours. First of all, we would like to apologize regarding the micro issues and therefore making the guide repeating the information to make sure everyone understands. During our stay we offer the sky-walk as an option, however the guides do stress the fact that this takes 1 hour in total and another hour left for the historic village. The running of the tour is designed to get the most out of Hallstatt within 5.5 hours especially for guests who are travelling through Austria/ Europe having not too much time on their hands for each attraction – but still like to see breathtaking Hallstatt for 2.5 hours. We are sorry you preferred to stay longer, but if doing the Hallstatt salt mines as well this requires an additional 3-hours involving the cable car, 30 minutes hike to the entrance etc. In this case we recommend going on a private full day tour, or make your own way to Hallstatt on public transportation about 2.5 hours one-way. Once again, we regret you did not enjoy our tour at all claiming the worst tour ever, which really saddens as we try our best to offer great service We do hope to get another chance someday

This was Transportation - NOT a Tour
Paula_W
, Jul 2022
We had read that entry costs to Hallstatt activities were excluded but we did not expect that the 2 hours allocated would NOT be sufficient time to do ALL of the activities that Hallstatt had to offer. It took time to walk from the bus to the Funicular, time to line up and wait for the return journey up and down the Funicular to see the view from the Skybridge, time to line up and wait to take photos of the view but NOT enough time to walk to line up and wait for the 90 minute Salt Mine activity. The narration of key points and history along the way was OK - the reason for 1 star. Please do yourself a favour and take alternate transport to Hallstatt and allocate at least 3 hours at Hallstatt to do all of the activities and enjoy the scenery.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Dear Paula Thank you for your message and taking your time writing us a review. As mentioned on our website, the ride to Hallstatt is about 1.5 hours’ drive one-way taking two different scenic round-trip routes & about 2.5 hours free time in the historic village. Please note, the majority of our guests prefer the 5.5 duration enabling a 2-hour visit to the picturesque town of Hallstatt during their Europe trip. Within your free time we do recommend walking through old town, visit the famous bone house & catholic church enjoy a coffee break. Possible is also to include the skywalk or a ferry ride for 1 hour – therefore all entry fees are optional so our guests may decide on spot what they would like to do. In case you would like to spend more time in Hallstatt visiting the salt mines ( 3 hours minimum) or the five fingers at Krippenstein ( another 3 hours minimum) we would recommend a private tour for 8 hours at least. Also possible is to extend your stay in Hallstatt ( just notify our guide) and make your own way on public transportation; recon about 2.5 h. Nevertheless, thank you for your feedback which we really apricate trying our best constantly improving our service. Hope we do get another chance welcoming you on board. With warmest regards, Your Salzburg Panorama Tours Team

Hallstatt was the most beautiful town with a lake, colorful houses and most beautiful scenery. I got to experience with my friends to just relax by the lakeside to watch people and scenery. The sky ride was very good to see the whole town from above. I definitely want to come back again with my family next time.

Hallstatt definetly worth visiting. The road there and back was full of impressive views. The only thing I would say would be a bit better is allowing more time to spend in Hallstatt as you get only 2.5 hours and it doesn't feel like it's enough. Overall it was amazing.

Comfortable and convenient way to visit Hallstatt
Albert_S
, May 2022
We had a great time on our day trip tour to Hallstatt. The tour company was very organized checking us in, and the bus to Hallstatt was comfortable and had outlets and wifi available. Our tour guide was great and recommended several things for us to do in Hallstatt and Salzburg. You are on your own in Hallstatt (no guided tour inside the town), which is exactly what we wanted as it allowed us time to explore at our pace. Hallstatt was crowded but absolutely beautiful.

Very scenic visit to Hallstatt. Our guide Peter was a wealth of information. I appreciate that he took different routes so we could see the countryside between Salzburrg and Hallstatt. The funicular was worth every euro. The views are breathtaking. We were lucky with the weather and had a beautiful day.

Might be better as a full day tour with the salt mine.
Praisie_H
, May 2022
Note that this is a big bus trip, many other buses are heading to Hallstatt too, but due to the pandemic the numbers are still quite reasonable. Best time to visit before the crowds come back again. Also I think it would have been better if they had combined this trip with the salt mine at the top of Hallstatt since we were going up anyway, and make it a full day trip. For this package you have to pay extra to take the funicular up to the viewpoint, where there is a salt mine as well. It's a good view of the lake and the towns below, but it's not the signature postcard shot of Hallstatt. The signature shot of Hallstatt can be found on google map as Aussichspunkt Hallstatt or google Haus Cian. From there you will take the classic shot of Hallstatt with the lake and the church tower.
