Full description
Budapest is a great city, but it can be quite overwhelming to the traveler. Its size and loud buses can drive even the most experienced urban traveler to the woods. So why not get out of the city and into the beautiful and colorful landscape of Hungary's plains (the puszta)? Here you'll be able to lounge on the Danube and Tisza rivers, and gain a deeper understanding of the Hungarian countryside.

On your day trip, you'll enjoy a visit to a traditional farm, where you can see a horse show and dine on a fine Hungarian feast.

Lunch includes:
• Goulash soup
• Grilled chicken made in a traditional "Puszta" style with mixed garnish (potato, rice, vegetable)
• Dessert: milk pie
• 1 glass of white wine and mineral water

Then take a short walk in the famous town of Kecskemét. Here you'll have the chance to cool off with some drinks while taking in the sights. Your meals will be accompanied by live Gypsy music! The tour ends downtown. Your guide will be happy to point you towards another good restaurant or things to do afterwards, so make sure to ask!

Fun show. Kids would really like it.

A tour guide got sick so I had to join the 1/2 day horse show and trip to palace group. The company handled the change very professionally and I felt it was a fair exchange. However, I cannot speak to the "countryside" portion of this tour. I liked the show. I wouldn't say it was "amazing", but it was fun and had some surprising highlights. I enjoyed the horse-drawn wagon ride afterwards. There was also a small petting zoo for the kids (and adults too!).

It was every bit as enjoyable as I expected.

We had booked an excursion to the horse show last year when we were on a Danube cruise, but it had to be cancelled because we were delayed. We booked this weekend in Budapest especially to go to the horse show and we were not disappointed. The skill of the horsemen is remarkable and the discipline shown by the horses, not forgetting the donkey, was truly amazing. It was good to be able to visit the stables afterwards and to see the other animals too.

Great experiance

The horse show is one if a kind....must do in Hungary! Only issue is the contact number on the info page that we could contact the tour guide. Nobody answered that number ever. Hotel pick up dod not happen by 840 and I had to catch a cab to the destination. But tour itself was great!
