Interesting trip. I liked the way the sequence of stops was organised, saving the best 'til last and spending the longest time there. It was a bit annoying how everything the guides said had to be repeated in 4 languages but I guess that is had to avoid sometimes.

Beautiful trip. The cathedral in Esztergom is the little brother of St.Peter's Basilica in Rome, with the same feel. Definitely go up to the cupola. Good guide with an amazing command of 4 languages, freely switching back and forth. Good lunch, could have done without the gypsy band that were pushing for tips and had marginal music. Better air conditioning on the bus and a bit less crowded boat would be a welcome improvement. Overall, I would rate the trip as excellent, informative and entertaining. Definitely worth doing.

A charming excursion outside of Budapest city limits, with stops at three small towns. We give this a "thumbs up" especially with Helena as tour guide.

Relaxing trip through the countryside to our destination. Had lunch at a wonderful restaurant atop the city......very nice view. Last stop in Centrum seemd more like a tourist shopping experience to support the local economy. We were there 1.5 hours which seemed a little long if you weren't into the shopping experience. Guide did a nice job and was very pleasant.

Long bus ride, but beautiful scenery. Would recommend during good weather season.

Good tour. Food only ok and no need to go to diamond exposition that has nothing to do with the tour. Guide really good.

Our party of 5 enjoyed the Danube Bend Day Trip. The tour guide was very good and delivered the information in 3 different languages. We did not like the last stop at the jewelry factory. There was no historic value to that stop and I felt was not pertinent with the other stops of the tour. They picked us up from our hotel right on time and the bus was very comfortable.

The trip was great, the weather was nice in October. The view of the restaurant was breathtaking. We didn't have to stay at the diamond factory long. We had plenty of time for shopping at the last town and went back to Budapest by boat. Tour guide was nice and caring, and she spoke English very well.

This was a good tour but could have been much better. I thought the time spent going to Caprice was wasted. I'm not sure how many tourists want to spend thousands of dollars on diamonds in the short time available.
We would have much preferred to spend more time in Esztergom and Visegrad. We didn't have the chance to do the wine tasting in the tunnel underneath the Cathedral in Eszterom and our trip was to Visegrad was limited to lunch and we didn't actually get to go to the Citadel.

The guide was very good. Not sure why we stopped at a diamond store (waste ot time) but rest of the trip was good. Boat was not a luxury ship but was a commuter boat that had no beverages and when we docked, we had to walk thur another boat. Lunch location was very scenic and food was tasty, Disappointed that there was limited time in Szentendre- would have liked more time there. Nice way to end our European visit.
