The guide was very competent and explained a lot, but it is tedious when English is spoken first, then German, because the building that is being explained is usually further away. The cruise that we got in this combo deal was exactly the same that we had booked solo 2 days earlier. Why aren't you able to state in your listings that this is the eye-to-eye tour?

Nice overview of the city

Excellent on arrival in Budapest to understand where to linger in the next few days. I suggest to book the visits in the morning because in the afternoon the traffic in Budapest is considerable and the journeys with the Van take longer and you risk seeing little. The guide Susanna proved to be very competent and tried to optimize the times to the maximum. The cruise is very beautiful and well organized.

we congratulate the Italian guide Vera, nice, competent. Unfortunately, the tour was not as written in the description: we did not go through Parliament, from the Margherita bridge, we did not visit neither the Matthias Church nor the general markets, nor did we go past it. We understood that there had been some unexpected. However, for those of us who stay in Budapest for only three days, it is essential to have a view of how many beautiful things there are. Thanks to the guide we have known many things. The Danube cruise was beautiful. I recommend this tour to everyone. They are three hours with the guide and then an hour on the boat with explanation in the headphones in the various languages with an aperitif of your choice. very relaxing
