Great tour

Our guide Robert was honestly the best guide we have ever had on any tour! (And we travel quite a lot so this really means he was excellent!) I traveled with my 60 years old parents who usually struggle with English-speaking guides as my parents' English is not very strong/fluent, but with Robert and this tour they didn't have any problems with understanding his English or the things that were explained during the tour. The activities were nice and the horse show was pretty impressive! Also the visit to the town of Kecskemét was worth it. We really liked this tour and the small group of 5 people that we were. We would recommend this tour 100%! :-) Also a good tour for families with small children.

During this day tour we were traveling in a small van because there were only four participants. You had a private tour, so to speak, which we liked very much. The organization was smooth overall. We really liked the tour itself: a nice trip if you want to take it easy for a day. We were only disappointed with the carriage ride: it was nice, but it only took about 10 minutes. We had expected a longer carriage ride through the Puszta.

I had a marvelous guide. Interacting with him was as good as the tour,which was super. I was a bit skeptical about the horse part in Puszta but was blown away by the fun. Thank you, Robert, for a marvelous day. The meal was delicious too. Highly recommend especially for children.

Wonderful, knowledgeable guide. Horse show and food was great

Sorry to see the after affects of communism. Glad to see the work to repair the beautiful older buildings

Good tour to see how the country people live

Would recommend this tour as an alternative to city tours....very enjoyable
