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!
Fantastic tour, highly recommended.Francis,the tour guide took us round to the Roman ruins on Buda side and after the concert and dinner, he took us up to Castle Hill to see a panoramic view of Budapest at night. ( a surprised treat) . The concert and dinner is also great and amazing
Would highly recommend this! From the tour given on the way to/from, to the ambiance, food and drink - all good!
Fantastic time. Hotel pickup was on time. The musicians and dancers were brilliant. Meal and wines great. Do this trip!
What a wonderful experience!! The food was delicious and the entertainment was delightful. Great fun had by everyone.
Some confusion to start as we were picked up by taxi and had expected a mini bus or similar. We were taken to a coach and then had to circle the city to collect the guide. It wasn't any hassle, more amusing than irritating. However, I do think we arrived at dinner a little later than we should have. The pre-dinner visit to view the city at night from the hill was great and the guide was very informative. The dinner itself was excellent, held in a large hall on an island. The dancers and musicians were also excellent. Overall, it was a terrific experience and a nice, relaxed way to meet and chat with fellow travelers. The wine went down well too!!
Very good entertainment and dinner. Good service and lots of
good wine !
An outstanding tour!! We greatly enjoyed the tour of Buda and Pest before the show, which took us to the main tourist attractions in the city. Then, the main event: the folklore show. A wonderful evening of gypsy violin music, interspersed with eight very, very entertaining gypsy dancers. And, of course, the scrumptious meal!
I recommend this informative, entertaining, gastronomical evening to anyone visiting Budapest.
It was more than I imagined it would be. The tour guide was wonderful and wanted to show and tell us about her city. She made it very interesting. The dinner and show was excellent. The entertainment was spectacular and went on during our whole meal. This tour was well worth the money we spent and I would highly recommend anyone visiting Budapest to go on it.
Just fun! Highly accomplished musicians and dancers. The food was great. And the tour guide had a great sense of humor.
A really enjoyable evening. Got picked up on time from our hotel and taken to starting point. Had a superb short tour overlooking city before being taken to the show. Great entertainment, great food and great company. A terrific night. Well done to the organisers.
Excellent! A must!! Even though our evening started shaking with our pickup not showing up and arriving an hour late, we had a great evening. Good value for money. Some of the best Folklore Show's I've seen. MONIQUE and MYNIE
Fantastic night! The tour guide at times seemed quite stressed, but other than that it was fantastic value for money and the hospitality and service was fantastic at the restaurant and a bonus tour before and after the dinner was a pleasant surprise!
the eurama trip was excellent, 3 course dinner with the finest of complimentary wines and palinka on entry..a rustic large barn hall....folk dancing...gypsy and Hungarian music...possibly the finest in Europe...well worth the money....on szieget island...and the icing on the cake..at the end of the show..was a panoramic illuminated photo/video taken from gellert hill....
I can not recommend eurama enough, kivalo in Hungarian is superberb,excellent the best in Budapest, the best in hungary...
Outstanding evening, This night out is an absolute must. the folklore show was all that
we expected ,the dinner and wine was plentiful-then the journey back through all the lit up sights was a great finale.
Excellent night ina great surrounding. Food was great and the folklore show fantastic.
