Beautiful Tour

Everything about this tour was awesome except the little drive into Slovakia. I don't understand why this was of importance other than to possible see Hungary from across the Danube. Since it was during the day and nothing was lit up, it mostly served as a waste of time

A full day beyond the City of Budapest

Having seen the City of Budapest on a Segway for 2 hours and walked the shopping district we took the Danube Bend Day Trip. It was a splendid day out on a Coach into Slovakia to see a Basilica in Esztergrom then onto enjoy a 3 course lunch with panoramic views over the Danube Bend and then to a lively little town with lots of small shops and eating places where we took the 1 hour boat trip back to Budapest, enjoying the river views as we neared the City just in time to see the magnificent buildings showing off their prominence in the evening floodlights. A super trip, a great day out of the city.

Excellent tour. We were very lucky with the weather and our tour guide Elena was very knowleadgeable, though some times we got to much information. She was very chatty and full of dates and facts. The lunch was better than expected, I could not finish it! In a beautiful scenic restaurant, wich was a plus. The trip back in the boat was really good also.

Comfortable, but boring

It was a very comfortable tour, but boring. I don't blame what I saw or did, the guided was not very enthusiastic in his explanation. He didn't speak English well either. The tour is suitable for elders, not young travelers. And I was told that the printed-out voucher is needed. But it wasn't necessary after all.

Day Trip to the Danube Bend from Budapest

Very enjoyable day trip to the Danube Bend. The trip allowed a visit to the countryside, away from the city. The stop in Esztergom was wonderful with a visit to the beautiful Esztergom Basilica which stands on the bank of the Danube, overlooking Slovakia. After departing, our next stop was lunch at a nearby restaurant on our way to Szentendre which was a cute little town along the Danube. Many shops and people watching was quite enjoyable in the main square. At the conclusion of our stay, we boarded a boat to continue our return to Budapest on the Danube. Excellent day trip that concluded at the dock area in Budapest, where we started.

We will be asking for a refund. Our vouchers said to meet atTranscontinental Hotel. We arrived an hour early to make certain we'd be on time. No one showed up. They said that they called but they must have called our Canadian number! Frustrating!!!!

Too long for very little to see. Lunch was terrible, and guide was difficult to understand and not engaging. First time ever disappointed with a tour. With that said, I guess I am not one for a bus load of people, usually do private tours with less than 12 people

The places we visited were fine, but the two tour guides gave no time for visitors questions regarding places we visited. The lunch was awful.
