This was a really Good tour; I thoroughly recommend it. Our guide; Fanni was brilliant, very easy to get along with; it was like a good friend showing us around town! She had very good knowledge of the wines, regions, and also vast knowledge of the cultural landmarks that we passed. There was a good variety of wines to try, I can honestly say they were all different in taste, but all were Good. It was great to be shown around by a local who had experiences of the places we visited. I really enjoyed it - Thank you!
We took a 1/2 day tour to two wineries; both small production, with an excellent selection of exquisite wines. At the second winery we were treated to a delicious lunch of chicken paprikash. Both of our winery hosts were warm and welcoming. We learned much from them about the wines, the process for making them, the history of the area, and even the traditions of Hungarian food. Our guide, Michael, was superb; friendly, knowledgeable about all things Hungarian, and very engaging.
Our guide Adam was wonderfull, first class! Very kwowlegeable and kind, a bit sarcastic und full of humour. He took all the time to answer our different questions in a very serious and competent way and showed us many beautifull places. We were even invited for a coffe break with strudel... I was so happy to have this wonderfull interesting tour which helps to understand culture and people from hungary better. Once more a great thank you to Adam!
Lovely little app but could have said that there were a number of steps to start the tour which less able bodied people may not be able to cope with. If that had been stated a meeting place, perhaps at the site of the first clue, could have been given as well. Also, one of the clues the escalator was closed (for repair) so didn’t have a chance of answering that one. Overall would recommend it as wouldn’t have visited the places we went through.
Excellent guide (Gregory?) who spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about the city. We had a bespoke tour of the city as he asked us which areas we wanted to see.
