Very nice tour, unfortunately it rained heavily from midday. But everything worked great, very competent tour guide, we were only 2 Germans on the bus, but we were very nice. Super and you can park well in the multi-storey car park very close to the descents.

It included 3 stops at Eztergom, Visegrad and Szentendre, all with beautiful scenery. A very good meal was included.

Excellent tour! Great tour guide (Yolanda). Good value for money. Szentendre was such a charming place.

Excellent trip as we wanted to do something different as we had been to Budapest before.
