Our guide was very dedicated and informed. He responded to the wishes of the group and was even able to show new people who have lived in Budapest for 20 years. Spontaneous, creative. In the end we got a little out of time, so the drive up to the castle hill and back turned out to be quite quick. Super German !!!

Fantastic trip with a very competent English guide Joel However, we would think that you might. took a break midway with some food and drink (at your own expense) or pointed out that there are no breaks so people can take any. a water with on the trip. Can highly recommend the second trip
