5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This was an excellent tour. The guide was very good, she spoke three languages. Our river cruise could not go through the Danube Bend so it was nice to be able to see it this way. Excellent choice for restaurant. I would recommend this tour to everyone visiting the area.

This day trip was fun. Liked the fact that we mixed it up with the ride on the boat back to Budapest.

Excellent tour - we were able to see more of Hungary on a beautiful day. Lunch was excellent, cities beautiful - high point coming back to Budapest on the Danube! And - the boat docked right in front of our hotel. The tour guide was very good - interesting and assisted my husband who has trouble walking - all in all - if you have an extra day in Budapest - this is a great tour to take.

Helena was a great guide and made this trip a real pleasure to be on. She had a highly personal style which was engaging. The tour was conducted in three languages but was done in such a manner that it was not intrusive. Beautiful scenery, lovely lunch, and a leisurely boat ride back to Budapest made for a wonderful tour and day even though it rained most of the day.

Excellent day long tour. It starts with a pick up from your hotel. By bus you travel to Visegrad, Estergom
and finally Szentendre. This tour included 3 course lunch at picturesque restaurant.
The guide was knowledgeable in the areas we were touring. The town on Szentendre is quaint
and charming. Transport back to Budapest by public boat. Great way to see the Budapest countryside.
We also experienced a town on the border of Hungary and Slovakia.

This trip was awesome. Our guide was very informative pointing out many Roman ruins and the lovely towns along the way. We stooped for very good lunch and had many opportunities to take pictures of the ancient church and castle. The trip takes you across the Danube to Slovakia. Then we boarded a boat for a scinic ride along the Danube back to Budapest. Best of both worlds, bus tour and a river cruise.

A lovely, informative trip made successful by the wonderful tour guide Elena Helena?. She gave us information right to the end, including on the public river ferry, even though abused by some imbecile for doing so. Good luck for your 50th anniversary as a tour guide next year, or as you would say, 'one more boiled potato for you!'
