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.
It was an interesting tour through attractive scenery. Sadly it rained all day so the views were not as spectacular as they would have been on a dry, sunny day. The mini bus was comfortable and the guide spoke good English giving enough historical facts to keep our interest. We had a delicious 3 course lunch in a lovely restaurant with what would have been a lovely view had the weather been better. I would certainly recommend this tour but try to choose a dry day.
Over all, the tripping is educational and the places that we get to see is BEAUTIFUL. The only thing I was not happy about is the food, I think they should provide a short menu of two to three options because the food we had was tasteless from the starter to the main course and the chicken was hard and over cooked. So my only complaint really is the food.
It was great to have to have a guide knowledgeable about the history of the towns we passed. It was a beautiful time of year. All pick ups were timely and it helped ThT Isztev was trilingual. I wish we would have had more time at each place and that we could have stopped at the castle.
Great guide, she was fun!!! The lunch spot view was awesome!!! Don't buy your souvenirs in Budapest!! Szentendre was 1/2 the price for the same stuff!!!!! We had a great time, boat ride back was a major plus!!
