It was an excellent day trip. We were picked up from our hotel and delivered back at the end of the trip, The guide was interesting and friendly. The horse display was brilliant and the meal at lunch time was generous and so nice to experience traditional food. Great musical entertainment while we ate,

Highly recommend this tour. It was interesting to see the countryside of Hungary and our guide, Ingrid, was excellent with her knowledge of the culture and history of Hungary, which really added to the trip. The horse show was superb and the highlight of my trip.
A well planned, most enjoyable day.
