Guide - Andi Driver - Tamas I can't offer enough praise for this experience. This was a great day. I learned, laughed and never once felt bored. Hungary is a country I knew very little about and after this drive, I was left wanting more. Thank you so much for a wonderful day!

Excellent way to transfer from Budapest to Vienna!!
This side trip transfer was amazing. Our tour guide and driver were very knowledgeable and the towns and cities we stopped at were all very interesting. It was nice to see and learn the sights and history of the areas between the 2 large cities.
Highlight of vacation

Good value and engaging tour!
A great way to get from A to B with a lot of interesting history along the way. Our guide was really informative and energetic and went the extra mile to make sure we got the most out of each visit along the route. All stops were well worth seeing and I'd recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about the history and culture as well.
Amazing way to travel from Budapest to Vienna
Very friendly guide who told us interesting stories, familiar atmosphere (small group), it was a perfect day. Recommended to everyone who wants to make the journey from Budapest to Vienna unforgetable.
A wonderful experience, new places, new friends!
We have had a wonderful trip from Budapest to Vienna with an incredible girl. She has been tireless, funny and really competent. Her enthusiasm was engaging and she showed us places that otherwise we would never have visited. We travelled with our girl, 5 years old, and it was nice for her too. Happy to have chosen this way to travel from one city to another.

Excellent day trip from Vienna to Budapest
What a great way to travel between Vienna and Budapest! We got to see some very charming Hungarian towns, totally off the beaten track and unlikely that we would have visited on our own. Our guide Noemi was very knowledgeable and keen to show us all the sights at each stop. The driver too was courteous, the vehicle comfortable. A great trip - for just a couple of hours add on to the regular commute between the two cities you get to see some real hidden gems in the Hungarian country side.
A Great Adventure!
I would highly recommend using this tour group. We took the tour from Vienna to Budapest and it was a great journey. Ildi was our guide for the day and we she was very informative regarding our destinations. She was also a wealth of information about general questions regarding Austria, Hungary, and Budapest.
Best way ever to travel from point A to point B!
The trip from Vienna to Budapest was awesome! Our guide Andrea was the best: extremely nice, knowledgeable and fun! She provided us with great information during the whole trip, and was even very considerate and always gave me some time to translate what she said to my 80-year old father (with whom she was also extremely kind and patient). The places we visited were very interesting, and we definitely would not have had the chance to see them, had we chosen the traditional bus/train/plane. I would recommend this kind of tour to anyone who has to travel from one city to another and wants to make the most of it! Five stars to the tour as a whole, and six stars to Andrea, who, besides being a very professional guide, is such a kind-hearted person that, upon arriving in Budapest and seeing we were having some difficulties finding our address there, went out of her way and walked us to the door of our apartment. Thanks, Andrea! All the best to you!
From Bratislava - Budapest a model way to travel
A great way to travel from Bratislava to Budapest. Travelled in comfort and met some lovely people, and stopped off at a variety of places. We had a great guide and a great day was had by all. 10 hours went by in a flash.
Don't just get there. Travel there.
What a great way to see choice bits of Slovakia and Hungary outside their capitals. Our well-informed guide led us on a well-organized tour.
