What people are saying about Esztergom
The tour was very interesting! A taxi picked us up from our hotel to take us to the bus. The bus was super comfortable! The seats were more like sofas rather than the usual bus seats. We left on time and managed to do the whole tour on time and without any issues. The locations that we visited were absolutely beautiful and we could not stop taking pictures! It was truly a marvelous tour. The only reason why I could not give this tour 5 stars is due to our guide Helen. She treated us as if we were kids and she behaved inappropriately during the trip. We did not ask questions because she will not give you a straight answer - she starts talking and talking without answering questions. We started to avoid her because she gave us a big headache. She did not stop talking (crap) for 8 hours straight. Also, as far as I know this was an English speaking tour, but because there were 2 people (out of 21) who were Italians (who understood English), the guide kept translating the tour in Italian.
Great tour to visit several places in one day. I wish the weather was nicer and can spend more time at each place. I was told I will need to pay entrance fee at Castle of Visegrád (1.100 HUF) but basically I only got 5 minutes at the site and had to leave. Szentendre is too large to visit in less than an hour and there is not enough time to visit any museum there other than just walk around the walking area in the town and look inside a couple shops. On the other hand we came back to Budapest by 3:45 pm enabled me to visit the Museum of Applied Art.
I totally enjoyed this trip. It was well organized and the guide was extremely knowledgeable. As with any group tour, it is a challenge to balance the time for individual exploring and the need for the group to move on. I felt I had enough time to explore the towns, but wished I had more time at the large church. If you want to go to the top of it, then don't delay, don't buy admission to anything else, and make sure you are in good shape! Oh, and the lunch was delicious.
Over all, the tripping is educational and the places that we get to see is BEAUTIFUL. The only thing I was not happy about is the food, I think they should provide a short menu of two to three options because the food we had was tasteless from the starter to the main course and the chicken was hard and over cooked. So my only complaint really is the food.
Great guide, she was fun!!! The lunch spot view was awesome!!! Don't buy your souvenirs in Budapest!! Szentendre was 1/2 the price for the same stuff!!!!! We had a great time, boat ride back was a major plus!!
