    An extremely well organised tour with a very friendly, expert guide.

    This tour provided an opportunity to see a little of Hungary outside of Budapest in the easiest most organised way. The tour was accompanied by a careful driver and knowledgable guide. The guide looked after all our needs and provided a very informed clear commentary the whole day. I would highly recommend this tour and this guide.
