Our guests personal experiences on Budapest tours
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this. We met several other folks from other countries and had a great time. The atmosphere was very entertaining as was the fact they encouraged audience participation. They picked us at our hotel and brought to central
Location to board their very comfortable shuttle. The restaurant was actually an old Hungarian winery. Live entertainment both instruments and folk dancers. The family that owns the winery was very welcoming. Our guide Zsuzzanne was very good at being sure all in our party were accommodated. Definitely recommend.
