der Guide war sehr kompetent hat sehr viel erklärt, aber es ist mühsam wenn immer zuerst auf englisch dann auf deutsch gesprochen wird, weil meistens das Gebäude, worüber erklärt wird, schon weiter vorbei ist. Die Schiffahrt, die wir in diesem Kombiangebot bekommen haben, war haargenau dieselbe, die wir 2 Tage vorher solo gebucht hatten. Warum seid ihr nicht in der Lage das bei euren Angeboten bekannt zu geben das es sich dabei um die augengleiche Tour handelt?

Ottimo all'arrivo a Budapest per capire dove soffermarsi nei prossimi giorni. Suggerisco di prenotare le visite al mattino perché al pomeriggio il traffico di Budapest è notevole e gli spostamenti con il Van richiedono maggior tempo e si rischia di vedere poco. La guida Susanna si è dimostrata molto competente e ha cercato di ottimizzare i tempi al massimo. La crociera è molto bella e ben organizzata.

facciamo i nostri complimenti alla guida italiana Vera , simpatica, competente. Purtroppo il tour non è stato come scritto nella descrizione: non siamo passati dal Parlamento, dal ponte Margherita, non abbiamo visitato nè la Chiesa di Mattia ne i mercati generali, nemmeno ci siamo passati davanti. Abbiamo capito che c'era stato qualche imprevisto. Comunque per chi come noi resta a Budapest solo tre giorni è indispensabile per avere una visuale di quante belle cose ci sono. Grazie alla guida abbiamo saputo tante cose. La crociera sul Danubio è stata bellissima. A tutti consiglio questo tour. Sono tre ore con la guida e poi un ora sul battello con spiegazione nelle cuffie nelle varie lingue con aperitivo a scelta. molto rilassante
