    My wife and I decided last minute to do this day trip and let me tell you, it will not disappoint. Our guide, Peter, was extremely knowledgeable and kind. He picked us up right on time and from the start, he was cheery and full of enthusiasm. The locations he took us to were absolutely wonderful. Ge offered to take pictures for us at every stop. I would 100% recommend this day trip.

    We found the guide Attila to be friendly and informative. The communication before and during the trip was clear. The trip itself was interesting and we got to see the recommended spots in a day. We were picked up from our hotel in Budapest promptly at 7am and returned 12 hours later.
    Lunch was included in the trip. It was preselected by the guide (schnitzel and strudel) - a choice would have been preferred.
    On the whole we found the trip very good.

    This was a great day. We decided to book the trip not only because Bratislava was geographically so close to Budapest, but because during our stay in Budapest we had learnt of the linked history of Hungary and Slovakia.

    Bratislava was beautiful, amazing architecture in the old town and rich in history.

    Susanna was amazing. Her knowledge of the history of Slovakia, Hungary and associated European history was extensive. We even had an impromptu trip through a more modern urban area which gave us a view of Bratislavian life today.

    Really educational day, has inspired us to learn more about central and Eastern European history.

    Thank you Susanna!

    Very good tour with a friendly, knowledgeable guide, Dahlia.
    Dahlia started our tour by asking what we might like to focus on -- history, architecture, arts -- then tailored her tour to include those things. It was very windy and cold when we toured (late December), so even warm rest stops were included! The tour was peppered with local lore as well as personal reflections and provided an excellent introduction to Buda and Pest!

    We had lake Balaton tour on 28th May, 2022. We were traveling with a kid. The communication was always good with our guide Attila. The weather forecast was not so good and Attila informed us beforehand. He tried his best to make it enjoyable. Finally, the weather was not that bad. It was slightly raining in the beginning. But lake Balaton is a real natural gem. It's really big. Attila took us to an aquarium. We had ice cream together. Our lunch at restaurant Echo was great. We learned a lot of historical background of Balaton and the cathedral. We really enjoyed his company and the tour. It could have been even better in the weather was bit more sunny but we don't control that one. Best wishes for Attila.

    When I booked this tour I was expecting an open top bus tour but instead we were taken around in a mini- bus! A mini-bus is not the best way to see a city. Also, it was advertised as air conditioned but instead the driver just opened the windows!

    The guide was fairly good.

    We had also booked a river cruise as part of this package, but because of a road closure we were not taken to the dock to meet the boat but instead back to the pick-up point which meant we missed the 5:30 pm boat that we were supposed to catch. The next boat was not until 7pm which would have meant a lot of waiting around and a late finish to the day, so we did not have a river cruise which we had paid for and were not offered a refund.

    We booked a half day tour through our hotel to see as much as Budapest as we could.

    The driver, Zoli and the tour guide, Kristy were absolutely amazing and extremely informative. The passion that both of them have for the city made it all the more interesting. Kristy was well informed of all the areas and the great history of Budapest and we would recommend requesting them for your next sightseeing tour.

    Kristy spoke very good English as well and provided options of places where we wanted to see and the tour was very flexible and personal.

    Thank you so much for the best tour ever!

    I booked a private tour for my party of 8 girls to get the full tour experience. We had the luxury of a private minibus and being hosted for the day by our wonderful guide Susan who I had requested.

    We could not have hoped for a more knowledgeable person who helped us uncover the long, interesting and detailed history of Budapest and Hungary.

    We would absolutely recommend this as a good value option and highly professional. Any short city break needs a good tour to maximise time and help you to get to know the city fast, and this was a perfect solution for us.

    The lunch was also great. If we could have had the boat tour in the dark that would have added to the experience but starting at 9.30 as we had wished to meant it was in daylight. Maybe if you have the chance start a bit later.

    Good idea to do at the start of your break so you can familiarise yourself with the city and then revisit as needed anywhere you’d like to see again.

    Thank you Susan for being patient, taking loads of photos for us and keeping us on track all day. It was our pleasure to get to know you and your beautiful city. 😘🙏

    The original plan was to fly from Budapest to Bucharest and tour Romania by way of individual day trips, then fly back. With the price of fuel the way it was and the cost of everything going up, we wondered whether we could just do a one-way tour from Budapest to Romania and this tour fit the bill on both paper and in practice.

    Our tour guide, Marius, was a total pro. He was very, very knowledgeable at every stop (whether it be historical knowledge, common knowledge, current affairs, or random trivia), but is experienced enough to be open about giving us the space to explore on our own (but equally open to giving you more info/guidance). I guess what I’m saying is he makes you feel comfortable enough to ask for what you want in a tour guide. He’s also not a robot: he has a warm personality, loves Romania, and the tour company takes great care to form special relationships with every stop on the itinerary to make you feel like a VIP.

    About the itinerary, itself: most folks who choose tours like this feel like they didn’t get enough out of it… whether it’s more time at one stop or wishing one location was on it that wasn’t. We did NOT feel that way at all. We had more than enough time at each stop and we didn’t feel like we were missing out on the rest of Romania for what we were paying.

    About the accommodations: we got to stay with a family in their guest house and be treated to Romanian breakfast and dinners that were amazing, homey, and full of conversation with some of the other great tour guides and guests. We felt welcome and cared for, which goes to show the work and relationships this company tries to forge to insure their clients have an authentic Romanian cultural experience.

    If you want to get the most of Romania in a relatively short amount of time, we cannot recommend this tour enough. Ask for Marius and tell them Evelyn & Dave from New York City sent you! We love them for giving us a wonderful vacation experience and the incredible impression we have of Romania is due in no small part to their efforts.

    I only had the weekend to see the city and booked a private all day walking tour. Andrea was a great guide and we covered all the major sites. She has a lot of knowledge about the history of the city. I purchased a 24 hour transit pass and we used trams and trains which was also a fun way to get around the city.

    Getting the tour to the Parliament was an unexpected treat for the short time we were in Budapest. When making the selection for the city tour and Parliament it was stated on the form the tour was to be in English. For the Parliament tour it was in English. For the city tour it unfortunately not the best. Going back between (I believe) 2 or 3 languages which was not stated when I made the reservation, made it more than a challenge determining what she talking about to the area we were in. It was never stated there would be hundreds of steps to do for the Fisherman's Bastion, thus my wife could not do that part of the tour and stay on the bus. The highlight was the Parliament tour in the language specified on the advertisement.

    Loved the way they share their frank experiences. It was bit rushed to move on quickly. Rather than that it's good.

    Our first time in Budapest and we are so glad we booked a private tour with this guide. He met us at our hotel and drove us around to the most popular sites and main attractions on both the Buda and Pest sides. His vehicle was clean and perfect for touring as it has an oversized double sunroof and sliding back doors for easy entry and exit. He's a great driver and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city and passionate about sharing it with you. Very professional and pleasant man. He was able to cover an immense amount of ground in 4 hours. Since this was our last stop on a 10-day european tour where we did all walking tours, this driving tour was great! Also, we didnt have to deal with the nuances of being in a group tour which means we were able to cover much more ground than usual. Hands down would book again. Do yourself a favor and dont miss this. The BEST!!
