Highly recommend!!

What a lovely host! Gabor ensured that we enjoyed the beautiful drive as well as his company. We had a good time seeing the places and listening to the tour guide share his knowledge about everything we saw and every place we visited. We were three ladies and we found the service safe and professional. One of the best ideas for a day trip from Budapest!

Excellent day of discovery of the major cities and places on the bend of the Danube and all this guided by an excellent guide wielding the language of Molière unparalleled To recommend for those who want to see more about Hungary

Great time. Will recommend to all my friends.

Christine and Laslow were a great team. The info provided was very accurate and clear. Christine is an excellent communicator and Laslow made us feel safe at all times. Hope to spend time with them again.

So worth it!
