The guide Vera is phenomenal. He has explained the points of interest and context information. It has been flexible and efficient and that has allowed us to cover the program: see the museum and the Herend ceramics factory, take a bath in Lake Balaton, take beautiful photos, a correct meal, delicious ice creams and several interesting walks (abbey of Tihany, pier and hospital in Balatonfured)

The tour was excellent! We really enjoyed the fact that we first visited Herend and only afterwards - lake Balaton and not vice-versa. The tour guide was very friendly and the tour lasted as long as written in the description. We definitely recommend this for everyone who would like to have a full Balaton lake experience (including swimming). :)
