Deyan was an excellent driver on this private trip. He was very nice, and gave us a great drive around these beautiful cities. Now I must say this is not a guided tour, it is simply a tour where you get dropped off in the cities. Deyan did give us a map in Salzburg where you can see the different Sound Of Music sites.
Worthwhile locations but we expected more from the private tour
, Feb 2020
Our request for 2 hotel pick-up and drop-off points were well-accommodated. The three locations were impressive and worth visiting.
Our driver was able to provide options for drop-off and pick-up for the 3 locations when we shared our concern about our senior citizen companions. How we wished that our driver shared more about what is special with the locations. It was a disappointment that he only answered whenever we asked. We soon found out that our driver was not from the area and was only 2-3 months in Vienna. How we wished we were provided more interesting facts about the locations.
In Salzburg, we were just dropped off in one area and we were provided a map for us to explore. We expected that we will be dropped off in filming locations, but we were left to roam around on our own. It would have been better off to join a Sound of Music tour but we had less time to join one.
Generally, it was a worthwhile experience, but how we wished we were toured well.
We had a great time with our tour. Melk,Hallstatt and Salzburg are equally beautiful and amazing.Our driver Andrew kept us entertained while we were on the road for over 6 hours.excellent tour and awesome driver
Excellent driver, but not a tour guide.
He drove us to our destinations and was very personable, however when we read “private tour”, we had expected that it was going to be guided at each destination with information as we followed our guide- maybe just a mistake on our part for what we read on the site.
Our Driver Christian gave us superlative service, giving us plenty of time to enjoy our stops and ensuring we saw everything we wanted, as well as everything we needed to see. Chris provided numerous good detailed recommendations that made the most of our time and itenerary. His driving and manners were exemplary. We also enjoyed conversing about Austria, and he shared many anecdotes about things to see in Vienna, as well as his broad knowledge about Austria and its people and history. The personal service of the private tour is highly recommendable and greatly enhanced the overall experience. Thanks again Chris! HIGHLY Recommended.
6 of us took this trip - family and friends- all adults. The car was very comfortable with good leg room. Lucaour driver was friendly and helpful But, I have serious concerns about the safety of this trip. It covers 720 km so most of the day is spent driving. A lot of the driving was 150-160km p hr. these trips are run day after day back to back by the same people. That makes me nervous. The trip is not 12 hours as advertised. It is at least 14. Personallly, the Benedictine Monastery at Melk wasn’t really my thing. We didn’t stop there long enough to explore fully and the driver drops you off so there is no guide to take you round and explain things. And you have to pay to go in. Even though we arrived very early we had to circumvent large coachloads of people. It was a pretty spot though and a world UNESCO heritage site. Saltzberg is small - pretty centre and nice to walk round but by the time you’ve had lunch there isn’t time to go up the cable car or go to the museums and the lack of a guide makes it difficult to really maximise your time there. If I was to go again I would plan that part in advance myself very carefully. Hallstatt was gorgeous. A real gem. It was pouring down when we visited which was a shame. Still worth visiting though. We had very little time there. No time to visit the salt mines or take a boat trip. For my money we’re u to be in Bienna and looking for a day trip I would take the trip to Hallstatt only and visit the mines. It is a 3 hour drive there from Vienna.
Peter was our driver for our day trip from Vienna to Melk, Salzburg and Hallstatt and a few side stops for pictures. Great scenery. We had plenty of time at each stop to walk around. Great driver. Enjoyed the entire day. Thanks!
We got a private car and our driver/guide Kris was excellent. He was knowledgable and courtues. My recommendation is to take this tour if you want to get an overview of what to do at these locations. Melk abby is on the way to Salzburg we stopped for 45 mins, if you are a real history buff I would recommend coming back on your own and spending half a day, as there is the museum and gardens to see, which cost additional. For Salzburg, I know for my self I would need a whole day as there is so much to do and see. But since we were in Vienna for a short time, this was great. Hallstatt also depends on how much you want to stay and what you want to do. Next time I am in town I would go to Salzburg spend a day there and the next day go to Hallstatt as I would like to see the salt mines and spend more time in the town. The thing is the driver on the way to Hallstatt took us through the alpine route which is very beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get a good overall view of these towns.
