AWESOME trip. We saw so much in one day. A good mix of free time and guided time. We had just enough time to even do a river cruise, which was spectacular. Our guide was fantastic. Felt like we got to see all of the city in the short time we had. Excited to return to Budapest, fell in love with its beauty and charm.

It was indeed a very nice tour. The local tour was fantastic, she provided a lot of information about Austria and Hungary. The local tours in Budapest were very knowledgeable, they provided a very good explanation about the history and sites od Budapest, lunch not included was really good in a beautiful restaurant. This is the ideal tour if you have only one day to go to Budapest, however, Budapest is a magical and wonderful city which deserves more time to be visited in just 5 hours, plus the 7 hours it takes to go and come back to Vienna. Still the tour is worth if you have no chance to stay in Budapest.

We were picked up at our hotel and taken to our bus at the Opera. The trip was around three hours. Budapest is beautiful-you can't beat the view of the Danube with the city on both sides. Our guide on the bus was Judy, and she was great with her explanation of the overview of the day's activities. Our local guide was Doris, and she was interesting and helpful. We had a great lunch and were able to order from the menu. After the main walking tour, we had time to explore on our own, and we chose to do the interior of St. Stephen's Cathedral. One word of warning: If you do either this tour or Prague, their countries do not use the Euro. It is difficult to find places that will accept the Euro AND give change in euros, especially restaurants.

This quick trip to Budapest is an excellent way to taste a small flavor of this magnificent city. We will definitely try to come back and spend much more time. The bus trip was smooth and uneventful. The guide was informative and attentive to our needs. We were able to visit and see both Buda and Pest and still have time for some amazing shopping. The content and explanations give by our host was excellent. We had a delightful tour and would highly recommend.
