5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

We were looking forward to this event to experience the tradition of Budapest and we were not disappointed. The communication from collection to the venue was excellent and full of information. We were made to feel welcome and involved all the way. The food for the evening was wonderful and the energy of the dancers made me feel tired. The venue itself was decorated very tasteful for the type of event held there. All round from the minute we were collected to the minute we were deposited back at our hotel it was a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for the effort involved with this attraction.

My wife and I loved this tour. The food was excellent and all the meat was tender. It was served to 8 tables sat 10 at our table family style on big platters, which we passed around. Besides the excellent goulash, we had pork and chicken and of course potatoes, followed by a nice dessert.There were 4 wine bottles on our table, 2 white, 2 red, and we were told we could have all we wanted.

The music began almost immediately. It was performed by the Lugosi Gypsy Band. They do sell a CD but only accepted euros maybe Hungarian forints. Then, there was a trio of musicians to play for the 6 dancers. Very athletic! Some of the mens' solo steps reminded us of the buck and wing dancing of the American Appalachians.

The post-dinner bus tour was ok, but we did not go all the way up Castle Hill, just to the first overlook. We discovered far more to see on Viking's daytime bus tour. We were not interested in the Casino, but the bus did not offer the option to get off there. It did take us to our hotel.

We ordered the tour from Viator, but confirmation came from a local tour company, and the travel agency that picked us up was Eurama, based in the interContintental hotel. I suspect that all tours ultimately go through Eurama and end up at the same venue. Most likely just pick the best rate you find for the tour from any of these and it is probably going to this venue. Found it best to order online as going though our travel agent here in the US cost about double for some reason.

Very enjoyable! Good meal. Stop at the citadel on the way home was a bonus to see the views by night.

We really enjoyed the evening. The food, wine and entertainment was great. One suggestion though is to be sure all sit together. We had a table for six and had fun with the couples we sat with but others sat by themselves and didn't enjoy it as much by themselves. More fun the merrier! City was beautiful at night. I am so glad we got to experience it! Thank you!
