I was picked from my hotel and driven to the office location, the staff at the office were very friendly and warm. Our tour guide was respectful and knowledgeable and was very pleasant. Other travelers were kind and very engaging, we shared our experiences and a bit of history from our native countries, they were patient during the shopping spree at Szentendre and we walked together giving each other courage and compliment. Travelers were diverse and were very friendly and respectful too. I learnt alot from them
We enjoyed this tour and only wished there was more time to shop. I wanted to buy some of the Hungarian lace items and mushroom hat but there was no time! I wish there was an option to go back on a later boat. Prices seemed lower here than in Budapest.
It was a great trip but I would advise caution when making purchases in Szentendre as most things seemed quite expensive.
Guide very informative about sights and history. Too much walking for my husband but cute town to explore.
Awesome visit. The travel guide was excellent in explaining all things with minute details. Worth going.
