It was great to have to have a guide knowledgeable about the history of the towns we passed. It was a beautiful time of year. All pick ups were timely and it helped ThT Isztev was trilingual. I wish we would have had more time at each place and that we could have stopped at the castle.

A very nice way to discover the countryside and some nice places outside Budapest. I would have liked to spend maybe half an hour in the small town across the border to take some pictures. Every stop was interesting.

I had a wonderful experience because I was the only one on the tour, and my guide Zoltan thoroughly educated me on the history of each region and ensured that I saw everything important and special.

This was a very nice trip. The guide Katalina was really good. Wish we had a little more time in Szentendre:)

The tour coordinator was excellent enjoyed it thoroughly well paced
