Robbie was our tour guide/driver and he was most excellent. He provided us with some great history and we saw some amazing sites along the way. He personalized the tour by telling us about his favorite places to go and where he grew up. Robbie could tell I was interested in taking pictures and would point out vantage points that provided the best camera angles. He was patient with all our questions and he never rushed us. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if Robbie is your guide. Szentendre is a quaint town by the water. and has a charm and artistic feel. And don't miss the Marzipan Museum - very cute. Robbie treated us to a cheese langosh, which was truly the most delicious. He found the perfect spot for our picnic. Robbie recommended other sights to see in Budapest and told us a personal story about his experience with the crown in Parliament which was very interesting. He even told me specific trams and buses to take to other villages similar to Szentendre.
We were a bit disappointed with the palace exhibits. Not much about Sisi except for the gift shop. Didn't get to tour "the huge leafy gardens". Beautiful Hungarian farm and horses. Nice welcome with the national drink and scone. The Carriage Ride was fast and far from "magical". The traditional Lipizzaner Horse show was interesting.
Anna our guide was enthusiastic and shared a lot of interesting details. She even guided us in places that was out of the tour. It was a really enlightening tour allowing to have a deeper insight on local's daily life. Wish we had done the tour on the first day! Despite the rain we enjoy it to the utmost!
Our guide Zsophia was very good. Very friendly, extremely helpful and knew what she was talking about. It was a very, very cold afternoon but we had pit stops inside and a proper sit down and a mulled wine/coffee in another location
It was a very small group led by Kristian, who did an excellent job! he kept us on time and on track providing lots of amazing details and fun anecdotes! definitely would recommend to everyone!
