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.
We took a 1/2 day tour to two wineries; both small production, with an excellent selection of exquisite wines. At the second winery we were treated to a delicious lunch of chicken paprikash. Both of our winery hosts were warm and welcoming. We learned much from them about the wines, the process for making them, the history of the area, and even the traditions of Hungarian food. Our guide, Michael, was superb; friendly, knowledgeable about all things Hungarian, and very engaging.
A little of many things to learn about Hungary and its people. I liked the visit to the first Hungarian capital. May be I would like to visit the castle in Vishegrad, but meanwhile we had enough time for wonderful lunch with exchanging impressions with the others of the group.
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.
