My Review
I booked this for the monday evening (my second day there) as I thought it would give me an overview and help set my gearings. When I arrived at the alloted time I was the only person booked and was asked if i could attend friday instead so i said yes. Retuened friday to find one other tourist. Our guide was great but he took us only to the Bascilica (which i had spent the day at on Monday) and the Great Synagogue ( which I had visited Tuesday), he was great at answering all my questions about life as a Hungarian post-communism. When the time came for aour Danube trip we went to collect the tickets to find no-one at the office, frantic phonecalls and traipsing the streets followed, various stops along the Danube proved fruitless and eventually our guide was told that there had never been a river trip booked for that evening. We were asked to return the following day but i was already booked to leave the City. Terribly disappointed as I had thought that would have been one of the highlights of my trip to Budapest, perhaps I should have insisted on the Monday Tour going ahead and I may have experienced the river trip. Our guide WAS superb though and he was the perfect gentleman as by this time it was well gone 10.00pm and I was a lone female staying on the outskirts of the City, he made sure I returned to my Hotel safely by travelling on the public transport with me. i cannot thank him enough
