I will suggest that anyone who like to visite European countries first come and visit Budapest it is most exciting city where you can enjoy day and nights.

Well organized tour but you cannot take good pictures.

A nice and organized tour. You will not be able to take good pictures as the bus does not stop at key locations and because light reflects off the windows.

Excellent prices for 3 rides.. all-in-one

It was an excellent trips. I enjoyed much especially the bus tour and Danube river tour. Highly recommendable.

Best way to get to know Budapest in a single day! Refine from there.

Well worth the cost and there is no better way to learn about Budapest and get ideas where to see more.
