Great day out. I was only one of four people on the tour! Trip down was OK. True as others have mentioned that the guide is a little hard to understand, not impossible though, and does sound like reading from a textbook, but what do you expect? They showed a DVD about Hungary on the bus ride, which personally for me was information overload at 745am, but could be interesting for others. Lunch was at a hotel & not a traditional Hungarian restaurant, but it is a traditional Hungarian dish, and was really nice. Yes, perhaps it's too expensive, but you've just been dropped into a foreign city...it's a matter of convenience. Short bus ride past a number of sites, which others have complained about in other reviews - but with your 2 - 2.5 hours free time later on, you have more than enough time to get to all of these sites. You don't have a lot of time to, say, go into museums and so forth, but what do you expect from a one day trip to another country? The walking tour was excellent - a lot of interesting facts delivered by a very enthusiastic local, very easy to understand. It's a long day, but a great way to see all the main sites of Budapest, and good value for convenience & travel.
