We would definitely recommend this trip to people who would like to see 3 towns in 1 day. Although we were not able to see every single detail of each town, we were able to have a glimpse into the 3 towns. Our tour guide was brilliant and was full of information and fun facts for us about every place we visited. The lunch had a great view on top of the mountain with large portions, we were definitely full after the 3 courses! The only downside to the trip was we wished we could have spent longer in Szentendre as we were only there for 1 hour, although as Budapest residents we will be able to visit again. We would really recommend this trip!

Klara was an excellent tour guide! She was so helpful with answering all of our questions and really went out her way to bring us a special and unique experience outside of the city. It was hard to pick a favorite on the tour, though we were pleasantly surprised to check another country off of our list when we made a short stop in Slovakia. The views of the Danube from the Basilica and the restaurant in Visegrad were absolutely stunning, and shopping in Szentendre was quaint and fun.

A very nice trip with breathtaking views. Definitely worth its price. Travelling was comfortable in a small group with a friendly tour leader. The lunch included is very good and at a great location!
