Susan spent the day showing us Esztergom, The Bend and sites of Visegrad, Sloavakia, and a lovely restaurant and the shops in Szentendre. Susan shared her knowledge of Budapest Buddapescht, it's history, politics, and culture. She was so kind to us, and went the extra mile to drop us at St. Stephen's so we would not miss the organ concert at 5:00 PM. She is a great tour guide, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend spending the day with her.

Our group of 4 was picked up at our hotel by our guide, Susan. She expertly drove through Budapest and we headed to the Bend area. We drove to Slovakia and looked across the Danube to the church on the hill called Esztergomi that was beautiful. We then drove to Visegrad and looked at the ruins. We had a terrific venison lunch at a hunting lodge and then drove to Szentendre where we were to catch a boat to return to Budapest. The ship was in for maintenance so the Viator company organized a city boat tour instead. Drove in to the city, had the short tour and were driven back to our hotel. We all agreed that it was the best tour that we had ever taken. Susan was knowledgeable and a showed a passion for her country. We would recommend this tour especially if you have been to Budapest before and want to see something different from the city. Great value.

This tour was also guided by Steve. As I previously wrote, Steve was knowledgeable in history and culture, fluent in quite a few languages English and Russian including, safe driver, flexible to adjust to your wishes/pace. We had a pleasant day in a perfect company.

This was probably the most disappointing tour ever - for the price we did not expect to be collected in the guide's private small car with stuffed toys on the back window and no view whatsoever for the "scenic drive ". the guide gave us facts with no interest - the lunch was awful! Not recommended.

Guide was wonderful and so was the tour and the lunch. Saw some beautiful sights and learned so much. Would definitely recommend as it's a great way to see some other parts of the country with an expert guide all the way

Stephen was amazing. On time, very knowledgeable, and personalized our tour. A nice roomy van and a pleasant day even though we had rain. The Basilica at Esztergom was amazing and I am now interested in finding out more about it. Lunch was very good with plenty of wine to go around. Unlike another tour we had that gave us each 2 oz. of wine with our meal. This was one of the best days we had on our 14 days holiday. Also the trip to the wine museum with tasting gave us some samples of great wines of Hungry. Thanks

The guide was fair at best. We would not recommend him.

Fantastico tour che è andato oltre le nostre aspettative, dai paesi visitati, alla preparazione della nostra guida sulla storia, le spiegazioni, la fantasia delle foto da farci scattare, la sua simpatia e la grande professionalità dimostrata nell'accompagnarci in questo tour alla scoperta di posti, usanze e persone che mai avremmo pensato di potersi svolgere così e praticamente in forma del tutto privata. Il pranzo qualcosa di unico e irripetibile sia per i paesaggi e gli scorci di vallata, che per i piatti i profumi e gli abbinamenti presentati dal ristorante. Anche l'ultima parte del tour dedicata allo shopping reso piacevole dalla guida, i suoi consigli, ancora un caffè insieme, gli ultimi dettagli per il rientro in battello e un arrivederci alla prossima avventura. Grazie.
