We tasted 6 different Hungarian wines, they were all excellent. The portions were generous so was the portion of the snack (bread, cheese,etc..). The title of the trip on your web site is fairly misleading ;- ''Wine -Tasting Tour'' and so is the picture underneath. It is wine tasting but not a tour as it takes place in a pub which was very pleasant but unfortunately no atmosphere as we (2 of us) were the only people in the pub all evening. The pub is on a small side road which is very quiet and hidden from busy streets. Our waitress was lovely and very helpful but far away from knowledgeable about wine as it was advertised in the trip description on your website ,so we ended up reading the back of the bottles to have an idea what we were drinking. But after all, we had a nice evening, excellent choice of wines.
The weather was wonderful and the area around the Danube is beautiful. The trip would have been excellent if we had a good tour guide but unfortunately we didn't. Our tour guide's English was very poor, we hardly understood anything she tried to say about Hungarian history.
As our group had German and English speakers , she switched from one language to the other which made the confusion even worse. On top of that Our SIGHTSEEING BUS had an enormous advertising sticker of '' FIFA 2012'' on the window which blocked most of our and other passengers' view. How thoughtful of a company who organises sightseeing tours 24/7. The lunch though was excellent with Hungarian live music and beautiful scenery.
The tour was very professional.
Our tour guide spoke excellent English, he had a wide knowledge about Hungarian history which made the tour very interesting. Though getting access to the parliament is a bit stressful. As there are so many groups to visit the parliament the schedule is a bit tight and in order not to fall too behind the group in front of us made us feel that the trip is a bit rushed.
