Our guide André has a deep knowledge of Hungary. I learned a lot about the past and present of this beautiful country. His French is impeccable, to the point that I asked him at what age he arrived in Hungary, he replied with a smile that he was born in Hungary. The time spent with him was a great part of our trip to Budapest. He made the visit to this castle very informative. If you are offered their services, say yes.

Tour guide was amazing and took pictures at each spot if requested. This is a great way to tour the city and to see some of the main parts of Budapest. Highly recommend this tour!

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.!!

A wonderful trip, both the Palace and the Horse show were amazing. Our guide Attila was very knowledgeable and a great guy to spend the morning with!

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.
