What people are saying about Lake Balaton

The tour was excellent! We really enjoyed the fact that we first visited Herend and only afterwards - lake Balaton and not vice-versa. The tour guide was very friendly and the tour lasted as long as written in the description. We definitely recommend this for everyone who would like to have a full Balaton lake experience (including swimming). :)

An extremely well organised tour with a very friendly, expert guide.

This tour provided an opportunity to see a little of Hungary outside of Budapest in the easiest most organised way. The tour was accompanied by a careful driver and knowledgable guide. The guide looked after all our needs and provided a very informed clear commentary the whole day. I would highly recommend this tour and this guide.

It's a little uncomfortable, but it is an experience that should be done. The team is great and helps you. It's just a lot of fun. Gladly again.!!

It was fun

SUP is not difficult due to the good instruction of the guides. It's a lot of fun and you can paddle through the nature reserve in peace.

A lovely day out with a very nice guy who knew his stuff.
