It was nice to get out of the big cities . Another hour in Kecskemet would have been better and less time on the horse property

The Hungarian horse show was great. The gypsy music at lunch was fun. Not enough time spent in Kecskemet to see all the interesting buildings there.
Grundsätzlich gibt es nichts zu meckern. Trotz anfänglicher Skepsis hinsichtlich des Buchungsablaufs hat alles gut geklappt - Abholung per Taxi, Tour an sich, Tourleitung. Die Reiter waren rasant, die Pferde erstklassig. Nur die Puszta war irgendwie keine Puszta. Jedenfalls nicht so, wie man sich eine vorstellt. Nur landwirtschaftliche Nutzfläche, keine Weiten. Das ganze eine touristische Zirkusvorstellung, nicht uninteressant zwar, aber nicht mehr und nicht weniger. Das Essen eine Abfüllung mit Gulaschsuppe und Klischees. Zigeunerbands (waren sicher keine Zigeuner) mit alten Reissern wie "Julischka aus Budapest trafen genau den Nerv des durchschnittlichen Teilnehmers, der etwa der 75plus-Generation angehörte. Na ja, ist ja auch nicht schlimm. Nur habe ich irgendwie die Puszta vermisst. Die mit der Weite und den Brunnen und so.

Enjoyed seeing the second biggest city out of Prague. It's a nice day trip to take.
Guide never shut up but lunch was good and the horse show was interesting.
A great trip. The guide was very knowledgeable and animated. The trip to Kecskemet was not that exciting but the horse show was very good and the meal was very tasty.
Very exciting, we had a wonderful day in the countryside. Highly recommended trip.

Wonderful day in the country side and Kecskemet and then on to the farm, with the famous horses used by the Magyars. We enjoyed the entire day. Everything was on time and the guide was knowledgeable and friendly.
The tour was good and worth doing but I felt a little like I was in a factory and everything was just going through the motions for the 'tourists'.
The tour guide was very nice and pleasent but nothing exciting, just the regular 'tour' information.
Excellent day out. The carriage and horse show were great. The tour guide, Helena, was good. The only negative part was that she had to speak 3 different languages (English, German and French, although only the former 2 were advertised). This was information about sites and landmarks was not synchronized with the narration.
It's very nice! It's impressive the work with the worses! We had a live concert at lunch, wich was very tasty and regional. The small town near by it's also gorgeus.
This was one way to see the Hungarian countryside and the town of Kecskemet was a huge surprise and bonus. The horse show was excellent on a very hot day and enjoyed the lunch. Thank you.
It was a nice scenic drive from Budapest to the Great Plains. We visited the town of Kecskemet which allowed an opportunity to photograph beautiful architecture. We then visited a gorgeous ranch and attended an equestrian show which showcased some of the most magnificent horses I've every seen. Visitors were allowed to stroll through the stables and visit the nursery. A three course meal was offered as part of the package. The lunch was a disappointment compared to other meals we had enjoyed which were included in the tour packages we purchased, i.e., the Budapest Folklore Show, the Danube Bend Day Trip and the Herend Porcelain Factory and Lake Balaton tour.

Fabulous day out wonderful horsemanship, beautiful property. Definitely worth a trip.
The tour was interesting and our guide, Ingrit, was very nice and prepared. The horse show and the food at the traditional "Czarda" were excellent, we had a very pleasant day.
It is not the real "puszta" and it is a very "touristic" trip but it is worth if you want to spend a day outside Budapest and meet these talented horsemen (and I'm not too much into horses ;), admire the landscapes and enjoy some good Hungarian food!
We treated my husband's four sisters, 2 spouses to this trip. All enjoyed the outing deespite the rain and cold wind. Guide, Laszlo made special effort to include Hungarian descriptions ad explanations (much appreciated by our family). Dinner was excellent as wasthe atmosphere in the Csarda. The horse show was impressive, but a little bit short. All in all a good day in spite of the weather.

Excellent trip. Lovely location for the horse show and meal. The visit to Kecskemet was to short as i would have liked to have had time to wander the streets on my own.
nice meal there, very smart horses,great riders,nice drive to event(scenery) good roads and informative guide, worth going.
We enjoyed this but I wouldn't recommend it unless you are spending more than three days in Budapest. It i(the farm/ranch visit) s a nice change of pace from the city but you should have already worked through your "must see" list. We had good weather. I'm not sure how this tour would work if it was raining (you walk around in the dirt a lot). I think the stop at Kecskemet was just a fill in thing. This should probably be a half day tour skipping Kecskemet.
The plains and the stud farm were great something I always associated with Hungry. The meal was ok ; just a bit dry. The horse riding opportunity though was next to nothing and a bit farcical.But all in all a very nice day out; still would recommend it.
good guiding and driving services;
very accommodating staff at tanya;
the main dish could be a little more typical

Trip is as described (although a lot of the journey is not terribly scenic)
Kecskemet is beautiful and well worth seeing.
The horses at Lajosmizse are amazing and we were given plenty of time to visit the stables (there was a young girl in the party who was very keen to feed the horses and this was fine)
We also got a chance to see the other animals (cattle, sheep, turkeys, donkeys etc)
The lunch was good and our guide spoke fluent English.
Money well spent! Over all, very good trip. Small enough bus (14 passengers), knowledgeable guide speaking pretty good English and very good German. Very good driver. Nice tour of town Kecskemet. Very nice stay at the farm (Tanyaczardas) sp?. Lots of well taken care of animals, including great horses. However, have to add some not very good comments: Almost went on the wrong trip, as the staff of the bus tour company first placed us on the wrong bus! Visit at the farm felt a bit touristy and not truly genuine. Almost felt like we were just another bus full of tourists coming... Service at lunch was slow, and we had to wait a long time for dessert.
