The whole trip was amazing. Loved the stories from the driver. Only downside was the food but it was a basic restaurant.

Great
Excellent! Ii was an unforgettable experience and the guide was very well informed. We even reached Vienna earlier than supposed, and I could go and visit National Opera and the Library after the trip to Mauthausen! I shall recommend this to my friends.
