Such a beautiful day to spend half the day, wish I'd booked for a full day. Very fortunate to have only 2 people on the tour. Our tour guide Elizabet was so lovely and spoke amazing English. The trip to the marzipan museum was a great extra to the morning. Such amazingly creative people who sculpt the cakes. Such a fantastic small town. Enjoyed some clothes shopping and a very tasty ice cream here too. Sitting on a bench close to the Danube in peace and tranquility was amazing.

Great trip. We come here in Feb which is not the peak time for tourist, so everything is calm and peaceful. The tour guide is very nice, enthusiastic and amazing, she told us a lot about the history of this village. Definitely refer my friends to join it in the future.

La experiencia es formidable. Nadie debería de Budapest sin tomar este tour. La naturaleza es impresionante. Hilda es muy conocedora y tiene un muy buen trato

Everything is comfortable and the best for this trip apart from the food given as that was not upto the mark

Very pleasant and friendly, made us feel very welcome.
