Picked us up from the hotel on time. An easy way to get a small overview of the city.We really enjoyed the old city tour. For the new city they just let us near the Heroes square . Our guide in the bus suggested to all the group a nice restaurant as she said, for a lunch all together near Heroes Square . The restaurant's name is VAROSLIGET .Just avoid the restaurant and say no to the guide that insists to have there lunch.The food was awful. We all stay hungry .We just spent our money and time for a disgusting meal .

Trip was well guided. The preplanned meal was very good and a good sample of traditional Hungarian food. And it was a significant cost savings than if you ordered it off the menu yourself! Local guide was very knowledgeable but I wish we would have walked a little more so we could see the Buda Hills and take pictures of them. Instead we stayed over near the White House and prime minister building.
I wouldn't go again on the tour

The meeting point for get the bus at Opera is a little bit confuse.The Pest Side guide terrible,after hours in the bus to get to Budapest,he stopped at a restaurant in Heroes Square ,gave 15 min for us to looks at the Square,no explanation at all,at the meeting point after the 15min he decided to get in the restaurant gave 40min,that means we were in Budapest for 1 hours and just visit Heroes square ,I was not in the tour to stop in the restaurant and eat,40min later,he said the other guide was late and that's why we stop at the restaurant,after that we got in the bus,the bus bus went around the same square twice with traffic. Budapest is beautiful ,I would go back to see more,I would recommend at least 4 days there,one day is not enough.

The day trip was Great. I'm glad I had extra day to do this. I would have loved more time in Buda maybe next time.

Long but good day trip out. Very helpful and informative Danielle from Vienna part of the tour and Judy the Budapest part of the tour. Both were excellent and we had the opportunity to cover quite a lot of ground, despite having only a day. Restaurant recommended near the square of Heroes was excellent - really delicious food. Thank you for the great experience
Budapest day trip from Vienna

One of my 3 friends had an asthma attack early morning of our trip. We didn’t have an access to a local phone so I was”not able to tell the local office that we”Lo be late. Uber and taxi were not available either at 7am where we were staying. That was our first day in Vienna, but somehow we managed to take the public transportation. Scheduled departure time was 7:15a. The company claimed they left at 7:22a. We arrived at the place at 7:22a I could understand if there”s only one person missing..but there’s four of us. That’s a lot of money to waste. We were in a group tour in Split, Croatia last week and we waited for one person for 35 minutes.
Poor scheduling

Too much driving around the town of Budapest. The tour guides spoke broken English, hard to understand. Had to listen to three different languages . Too much talking, not enough site seeing for such a long ride. Not enough free time.
Great tour of Budapest!
, May 2019
This was a great one day tour of Budapest! Our guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. They helped put everything into historical perspective, so we could understand the significance of the sites we visited. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, but would have liked more time off the bus and walking around. Our favorite part was the walking tour of the Buda side. All in all it was a great tour!

The bus was clean and comfortable, which is good, because most of the day is spent on it. It would be better to have more free time, or option of local tour.
Budapest Day Trip

This tour was ok, large group bus tour. The lunch they scheduled for us in Budapest was delicious, very nice. However our local guide was hard to understand and hear, we felt like we missed out on a lot of the history she was trying to explain. We were disappointed in the end when they dropped us off for two hours in the tourist district. We would have rather seen the local artisans and wares where we were touring, it would have been much more interesting.
