What people are saying about Budapest
The tour was very interesting! A taxi picked us up from our hotel to take us to the bus. The bus was super comfortable! The seats were more like sofas rather than the usual bus seats. We left on time and managed to do the whole tour on time and without any issues. The locations that we visited were absolutely beautiful and we could not stop taking pictures! It was truly a marvelous tour. The only reason why I could not give this tour 5 stars is due to our guide Helen. She treated us as if we were kids and she behaved inappropriately during the trip. We did not ask questions because she will not give you a straight answer - she starts talking and talking without answering questions. We started to avoid her because she gave us a big headache. She did not stop talking (crap) for 8 hours straight. Also, as far as I know this was an English speaking tour, but because there were 2 people (out of 21) who were Italians (who understood English), the guide kept translating the tour in Italian.
Our host Margaret was amazing. She was friendly, relaxed, knowledgeable and kept our tour on track from one cellar to the next(we visited 3 including dinner). Perfect Saturday to get away from the city and see the countryside, small cellars and visit small wineries in the region. We highly recommend this tour, maybe add the chocolate tasting as well. Our Hungarian friend Sandor came along and was impressed with the Hungarian history and of course the quality of the wine. You can buy the wine as you tour(wine you can’t buy any where else). Unfortunately we were traveling light and couldn’t pack our suitcases with extra wine. However, Hungary does not import their wines so if you love the wine from this region bring an extra suitcase :) Good communication before the tour. We were a group of 7.
I enjoyed seeing Budapest and the main guide was knowledgeable but this was booked as an English tour and he had to repeat everything in Spanish which became quite confusing and annoying (for both sets of audiences) as you missed things that were already in the rear view. The English guide at the city itself was difficult to understand. It would be good to include in the tour description how long is the ride, whether you stop for food and how long you are actually in the city.
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.
Gabor really took care of us and listened to our interests. We did everything scheduled and then some. He even took us back to Herand Factory a second time to pick up something we asked them to get us. I would hire for every day if we could. I recommend this tour and Gabor with the highest praise.
