Gabrielle is the best tour guide - made for an excellent birthday

Three of my friends and I spent the day with Gabrielle on the Danube Bend tour. We had a great discussion on the way and back driving. He's extremely rich in information on the history of Hungary in general. We learned a tremendous amount. He was also extremely courteous, polite and very open. We thoroughly enjoyed his company and he made us feel totally at ease. I will recommend this tour, and Gabrielle especially. It was great to get out of Budapest and learn a little more about Hungary and its history.

Great time out of the city!

My boyfriend and I had a great time exploring the sites on the Danube, and this was a great addition to our trip to Budapest. Our guide, Gabrielle, was great! He was very knowledgeable about many different aspects of Hungary, which was perfect because my boyfriend and I had different interests going into the tour. The tour was perfect as is, but Gabrielle's personality makes me wish there was a 6 star review! We will always remember the sites and the great conversations!

Great day out

Very easy booking and service throughout. George picked us up from our hotel as planned and looked after us throughout. He was knowledgable and entertaining as we visited the 3 towns on the Danube bend. Lunch was great in a fabulous setting. Genuinely a lovely day and worth the money. Thanks George!!! Nicola
