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.

Well organized
