Until the Thirty Years War Kreuzenstein had never been conquered. It then fell into the hands of the Swedes, who, leaving with a bang, reduced much of it rubble. An Austrian phoenix of a castle.

Really see the countries with DayTrip

Used DayTrip twice - once with Peter from Vienna to Salzburg and then with Filip from Zagreb via Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia to Zagreb. These people really know how to treat travelers. Prompt pick up and drop at your destination hotels. Visit interesting places en route (even though they had not necessarily visited them personally before, they had done their research and were as charmed at visiting a new place as we were.) Cater to your personal wishes re stopping, visiting, taking photos. Fascinating and interesting source of local history and information, and cultural education too. Prompt, polite, helpful, knowledgeable drivers, what else could you possibly want?

Great Trips

We were a family of eight. We used Daytrip for our trip from Salzburg to Vienna with a stop at Melk and three days later from Vienna to Prague. Both drivers spoke excellent English, were right on time, and very helpful. Even though the vans were a bit tight for eight people and their luggage, we were still comfortable and would use them again.

Memorable trips around Eastern Europe with Daytrip.

We started from Vienna to Salzburg, Cesky Krumlov, Krakow and then to the Balkans. It was a memorable trips for 8 of us. All our tranfers were with Daytrip. The drivers Tomi, Martin and Michael were courteous, professional and on time to pick us from the hostels. Tomislav B. was with us most of the trips. He was an amazing driver. Very helpful, accomodative, guide and gave us useful informations.A thousand thanks to you, Tomi.Traveling with Daytrip was very convenience, hassle free and got to see the countrysides with the stopovers.Will recomend to friends in Malaysia.

My Day Trip

Yesterday my wife and I were picked up on time from our hotel in Salzburg, meaning 15 minutes early, by our driver guide, Stanislav. After introducing himself and showing us the water and other “goodies” he had brought for us, we headed to Vienna with planned stops at Melk and Durnstein. Stan was very knowledgeable about both places and Austria in particular. We learned way more than we could have had we been on the usual kind of transfer. We highly recommend him and the company.

The Daytrip driver advantage

Daytrip driver
  • Local knowledge about the route from Vienna to Salzburg
    Including available sights
  • English speaking

    All our drivers speak English as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They're happy to discuss local history and culture with you, and answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the local language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with natives.

  • Safety first!

    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.
