What people are saying about Szentendre

Well worth the money.Our trip was on a public holiday(26 December 2022) so many of the smaller stores in Szentendre were closed, but we were still able to explore the town and Marzipan museum(skipping the long tourist que ) and enjoy traditional cakes at the local coffee shop.Andras was a very informative guide, with excellent advice on other local attractions in Budapest. I would definitely recommend this tour if you want to escape the crowds in Budapest, and experience small town living.
