My family and I will be in Salzburg for 4 days and 4 nights in early May. I have an interest in visiting Hallstatt for a day, including a trip up to the salt mines.
Is this doable as a day trip?
Am I better off planning the trip myself, we will be using all public transportation, or looking at a tour group?
I typically don't use tour groups, but if there is an outstanding recommendation for one that visits Hallstatt, it would be silly of me to put all the effort, time, and money getting to Europe and then be cheap on an experience that will leave good memories.
