What people are saying about Danube Bend
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.
The cycle tour along the Danube to Szentendre was interesting and fun. Our guide, Karoyl, showed us a number of the national treasures like St Stephens Basilica and House of Parliament but we also enjoyed riding through Margaret Island and seeing the more communists influenced outer suburbs. It was also lovely to wander around the quaint Szentedre streets at the end of the ride. Some level of fitness required especially in the heat of the day. Bikes were good standard and easy to ride.
Great chance to see historic sites outside of Budapest
I totally enjoyed this trip. It was well organized and the guide was extremely knowledgeable. As with any group tour, it is a challenge to balance the time for individual exploring and the need for the group to move on. I felt I had enough time to explore the towns, but wished I had more time at the large church. If you want to go to the top of it, then don't delay, don't buy admission to anything else, and make sure you are in good shape! Oh, and the lunch was delicious.
A quick but beautiful visit...well worth seeing
The town of Szentendre is a must see for any tourist visiting Hungary. It is mere miles from Budapest but one is transported to a different moment in time courtesy of this visit. Mike (our tour guide) was an exuberant and kind tour guide with a great personality. We appreciated being shown around the town by him. All in all, a lovely way to spend a few hours in Hungary.
Places we went to were nice. Trip was organized. However, the guide would benefit from learning how to become more exciting. Youtube /Internet is full of good suggestions. Also more clarification is required on program of the day, and what each place would offer. We figured things on our own.
