Day trip to Hallstatt
It was a very a fantastic experience. The weather was perfect, the Lake District is beautiful and the tour guide as well as the driver was very pleasant, approachable and his English is really good. He is such an asset to the company.
Beautiful but almost too far for a day trip
A great trip, unfortunately we added two hours to the outbound 3hr drive due to an accident that closed the A1 (made it 5 hrs). This is where the knock on effect put stress on the day. with all the stops, there was no time for lunch until after the walking tour at Hallstatt and we kept to the 2.5 hrs free time even though it was raining and we would not be back to our hotel until after 10pm. That was an error in decision in my opinion.
All that said, it was a beautiful region to visit and we had a great driver but I feel he should have been more decisive in returning earlier.
Save and comfortable.

Amazing trip to Hallstatt
We had a lovely trip to Austrian's lakes and mountains. We have enjoyed the beautiful nature with the clean lakes, great waterfalls and the small houses lacated around the hight mountains. We've got wonderful impresions about this trip and the guides Balazs and Christiana.
We went to Hallstatt with White Alligator Tours.
The best tour guide, beautiful town, great atmosphere. I have been on many tours before, but this was the most wonderful experience overall. Our tour guide Peter was brilliant and very knowledgeable. He put in some humour with history, that makes you wanna listen to him. He accommodated to us well and was great throughout. Would recommend everyone to request him as a guide.
Trip to hallstadt
What an absolutely wonderful day. From the moment our guide Balasz picked us up at our hotel to the end of the day when he went out of his way to drop us at a requested restaurant, it was an amazing day. The tour was incredible. Our guide Christiane in Hallstadt was also wonderful. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
