We were so grateful to avoid trains, bus, ferry to get from Salzburg to the wonderful village of Hallstatt. Our driver was fabulous- made sure we were comfortable, stopped for photos & bathroom break. He spoke great English, was easily available through text to arrange pick up & was so congenial! Would definitely recommend to anyone!!

I rarely write reviews. My first time experiences using day trip in Europe have been very positive and I thought I’d write a short one to recommend it to others. I used it from Salzburg to Hallstatt and then from Hallstatt again to Innsbruck and then from Zurich to fussen. All three drivers arrived on time, had baby car seat as promised, and they all texted me on WhatsApp after they have arrived. I asked for breaks along the way for my cranky toddler to get some air and they all kindly agreed to it. One driver even prepared a small toy for my baby to play with. Thank you for the good service!

We used Daytrip 5 times during our trip to Central Europe the first two weeks of May. Vienna to Budapest Budapest to Salzburg Salzburg to Halstatt Halstatt to Czesky Krumlov Czesky Krumlov to Prague We were very happy with our drivers. Prompt, courteous, good English speakers. Mark was our driver from Vienna to Budapest. We stopped by Kreuzenstein Castle, Gyor and Pannonhalma Abbey. It was great being able to see these off the beaten path places. Kreuzenstein Castle can only be visited if you are part of a guided tour. For some reason the place opened at 12 noon instead of 11 and the tour was in German Mark was flexible and we ended up waiting 2 hours. Best to get the 4 euro guide book before entering. He dropped us off at our hotel in Budapest. We later got a call from him informing us that we forgot our tripod in his car and he dropped it off at our hotel the following day. Just classy service all around. Yuri drove us from Budapest to Salzburg. This was a long drive and tourists should note that if the driver will not be sleeping at your destination there is not as much flexibility and travelers should be considerate. We stopped by the gorgeous Melk Abbey and should have stopped by Lake Wolfgang but there was an accident en route and with the delay we had to skip Lake Wolfgang. Jan drove us from Salzburg to Halstatt and also from Halstatt to Czesky Krumlov. He was very flexible - we decided to add Lake Wolfgang, and skip Bad Ischl. We stopped by the Hohenwerfen Fortress which had a wonderful exhibit on Da Vinci's inventions but the castle itself was closed. They did have a bird show which turned out to be a lot more fun than we expected. It was a rainy day and he suggested that we do the salt mine in Halstatt which turned out to be a wonderful experience - he patiently waited for us. He was very helpful with the luggage - Halstatt has car-free zones and lots of stairs. The following day he drove us to Czesky Krumlov - we stopped by Mauthausen concentration camp and the monastery Vyssi Brod. Vyssi Brod tour was only in Czeck :-(. While he was flexible he was also very good with moving us along so we would make the next places before closing. Again he carried our luggage up several flights of stairs in our hotel in Cesky. Just topnotch service the whole time Nikolai drove us from Czesky Krumlov to Prague. He was also very flexible, a good conversationalist, and patient. We stopped by Hlubojka, Cervena Lhota and Karlstein - tourists should be mindful of holidays - Hluboka was closed. For some reason the Karlstein tour was a short version, did not include some parts of the castle open only to big groups. Again, top service from Daytrip. _____ There were only 2 of us traveling and we still found the service worth the cost. We would have had to pay extra excursion fees to visit those stops anyway, and some are not in any organized excursion. It was great being able to explore places without a tour group. Also, you're not rushing to catch a train or bus - you can linger in one spot, cut short a visit to another if you wish to move on. Only thing is I think the company should be more pro active with providing information re the schedules of the points of interest - first and last guided tour, which ones are in English, which ones have audioguides. It is a young company and it seemed the drivers were just getting acquainted with a lot of the stops. Hopefully they will get more background historical and practical knowledge which would add to the experience. This is what we experienced in Greece - the private driver was not the tour guide and did not enter the historical sites but he provided substantial background context before each stop which made the trip more memorable. If there are 3 or 4 people traveling this is a no-brainer. It's like ubering across central Europe. Great service.
All Daytrip drivers speak English* as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They'll be happy to discuss local history and culture with you, as well as answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with local culture. *Drivers for Lite service aren't required to speak English but must meet all other standards.
We screen all our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally interview each one. We also inspect their cars for safety, comfort, and reliability. All cars must be less than ten years old, in excellent operating condition, and insured as required by local law. And because our drivers are locals, they're familiar with the rules and customs of the road.
