    The best part of the tour was spending the day with our tour guide Steve. He is an excellent guide and a really nice and patient person. He gave us great insight into both historical and modern day Hungary.

    What a wonderful tour. Full of beautiful scenery, history and such varied sights. Everything was so well organised by Susanna in the office with whom I corresponded beforehand. Our guide, Susan, was very experienced, knowledgeable and extremely personable. She ensured that everything went to plan, that we had plenty of information about each venue and that we were also given time to explore/take photos in our own time. After a delicious lunch and time for shopping/sightseeing in Szentendre, we took the ferry back to Budapest, a peaceful journey along the river Danube. This was a trip that we will remember for a long time. Excellent.

    This was our second private tour we took while in Budapest (see separate review of “4 hour first class private tour of Budapest”). We were fortunate to also have the same excellent driver/guide, Steve, for this tour as well. This was an all day out of Budapest “Danube Bend” tour. I didn’t know what to expect but we ended up visiting historical castles, cathedrals and other sites, some dating back nearly 1000 years. Parts of the Danube River serve as the boundary between Hungary and Slovakia. At one point we visited a bridge joining the two countries which was pretty cool. The tour was fairly physical climbing up and down steps and oaths to get to some of the historical sites but the exertion was well worth it at each site. We had some incredible views of the Danube as it wound its way through the Hungarian countryside. We stopped in an artist village for a simple but tasty three course lunch. When we returned to Budapest Steve was flexible and took us to revisit a shop near Buda castle to secure a gift at a shop we had seen the day before. Throughout the tour our guide was informative, fun, helpful and interesting. At the end of the day we were given a voucher for a 90 minute Danube River cruise through Budapest. That tour was very relaxing and a fun way to finish the day. Overall, a fantastic private tour with a truly wonderful guide, Steve. Highly recommend.

    Thomas was a knowledgeable and engaging guide for the day. Had a great time on this private tour. Highly recommend.

    We expected a Danube cruise back after a car ride to destination. Told that there’s not been a cruise back since Covid and it is still being advertised! We got a local river ride after we drove all the way back to Budapest! This did not make up for the discrepancy.

    This was a wonderful trip to the Hungarian countryside. To begin, Susanna from the tour company answered all our questions and arranged a wonderful vegetarian lunch for us taking into account our dietary requirements. The original tour vehicle had an issue but Susanna immediately arranged another vehicle and a wonderful guide in Geza who was very knowledgeable and friendly, patiently answering our questions. He went into detail in each of the tour stops linking them to the Hungarian history. Great guide! Susanna even gave us a complimentary boat tour for the slight delay in tour start. All in all, if you are looking into exploring the Hungarian countryside small towns, this is the tour!

    This is a two part review. Nora, our guide was super as nothing was too much trouble to her. The tour without the return by river cruise represents a very overpriced tour. Our river return to Budapest was not possible (The pope’s visit was the given reason). We did receive a compensation offer of a night river tour of Budapest which we enjoyed. The lunch stop was good. The soup and dessert were very good. The key point though is the price of the tour which, I feel, was distinctly overpriced. If we had known that there was no return by river beforehand, we would have canceled. I think the tour company has that responsibility to inform if the cruise cannot be done.

    The tour guide Steve was the most memorable for me. Steve is a life long Hungarian who had intimate knowledge of the history of the area, Steve took us through the country side safely to three different villages. We got to see a spectacular church in Esztergom. Steve was a experienced tour guide who knew when and where to stop for food, bathroom breaks, souvenirs etc…. The tour company picked us up at our hotel and we had a choice or returning in the tour van or on a boat ride on the river Danube. We chose the boat trip it was fabulous. We have used Viator on all our vacations and never have been let down. I highly recommend Steve as a guide and Viator as the guide service Mike and Anna 4/27/2023

    Steven was an excellent tour guide. We saw 3 different towns in one day, got a taste of great Hungarian food at a local restaurant and still had time left over for shopping. Plenty of things to entertain our 9 year old. Would recommend this tour and Steven!

    A great day out of the city seeing charming towns and historical sites. The lunch and wine cellar was a nice touch. We even saw the Roman Ruins (thank you Susan). Of all the tours we have ever taken, Susan was among the most professional, informative and friendly hosts. She went our of her way to make sure we had a great experience.
