What people are saying about Városliget
Overall excellent experience - prompt and efficient hotel pick up; first part is the drive in the minivan listening to the guide - both our driver and guide were so engaging, funny and informative and made the experience really interesting and exciting for the whole group; then there are stops at gellert hill, heroes square and the castle district which were all good (I was with my mother who has trouble walking, but she managed everything OK). Definitely better to be in a smaller group in a minivan instead of those big tour coaches. Overall great introduction to Budapest and gave us good ideas on where to visit next
Pickup for return was NOT GOOD. There was no cabs waiting to take us back to our pickup points. There was no hostess to call for the cabs. There was a growing long line from the ship coming off waiting for the cab pickups. Fortunately, we are staying close enough by to walk and we did that because it was FAR FAR FAR TOO COLD to wait outside. It was too cold to be out walking too, but it was better than waiting for what could have been a long time with a taxi that never came. Cruise, food, and staff were exceptional. Pickup to the ship for departure worked great and right on time.
We were a group of 14 people composed mostly of seniors and so our pace was a bit slow as could be expected. Our guide Mikhail was amazing and completely accommodating! We never felt rushed throughout the tour. He took us to the beautiful sites of Budapest and explained the history and stories behind the sites. He was very engaging and lively. Perfect tour if you only have a few short days in the city.
that was NOT A PRIVATE TOUR as advertised. It’s was 7 in our group and many more joined us on a tour. Also, thebus didn’t pick us up at the hotel, we had to walk pretty far to it’s location and get transferred to another bus for actual tour, and our tour was in 2 languages, because half of the bus was of Italians. Overall walk and transfer killed about 1 hour. Not very professional and misadvertised.
Got picked up 25 minutes after expected pick up time. It would have been ideal if I was emailed or texted that a taxi would pick us up. When I called asking when I would get picked up from our hotel, they gave the taxi license plate to recognize the taxi out of many taxis passing by.
