Our tour guide, Helena was great! She was very nice and knowledgeable about the area. By my count she, amazingly, speaks 5 languages. It was a nice trip into the Hungarian countryside and the weather was beautiful. Kecskemet is a very pretty town with beautiful churches. The Lajosmizse horse farm that breeds Lipizaners was just gorgeous and lunch at the farm was delicious. I highly recommend the tour to anyone!
