Seen sehen!
Eine wirklich schöne Reise! Herrliche Aussichten. Jeden Tag unterschiedliche Seen im Blick. Anforderungen waren für uns angemessen. Anstrengung und Erholung wechseln perfekt. Sehr gute Verpflegung in HP. Pausetag auf der Tauplitz war genial. Bestens persönlich und kompetent betreut durch Herrn Frisch und Kollegen vor und auch während und nach der Reise - super! Wir buchen wieder.

Beeindruckende Wanderung in großartiger Landschaft. Zum Teil wurde nicht deutlich genug auf die Schwierigkeiten der Tour hingewiesen.

Sehr gut, empfehlenswert.
Wir haben eine wundervolle Wanderwoche erlebt, die ganz unseren Bedürfnissen entsprochen hat. In jedem Hotel wurden wir freundlich willkommen geheißen, so dass wir uns nach den abwechslungsreichen Wandereindrücken gut ausruhen und stärken konnten. Die Organisation klappte perfekt, gerne haben wir auch einmal eine Alternative zur Wanderung angenommen. Die beschauliche Umrundung des Altaussees ist beispielsweise sehr empfehlenswert. Je nach Tagesform haben uns die Unterlagen passende Möglichkeiten der Tagesgestaltung eröffnet. Wir sind erfüllt und körperlich fitter heimgekehrt. Zur Nachahmung empfohlen!

Ausseerland Wanderreise
Die Touren entsprachen genau unserem Wanderniveau, wer wandern in der Natur abseits der gängigen Routen mag, ist hier richtig. Highlight war die Tauplitzalm, hier wären wir gerne noch länger geblieben. Gepäcktransport hat immer funktioniert, die Wegbeschreibungen und Tipps sind sehr gut. Tolles Programm!

Nice Trip
Overall experience about tour was good. Balance with resting days and walking days was good. There was enough margin in routes and timetable. Most hotels were comfortable and nice and well located. Eurohike Routebook was nice and quite easy to read. For traveler it is an advantage to speak German, when some of the stuff did not speak English.
