Great wonderful trip

We really enjoyed our wonderful trip to Budapest, Vienna & Prague! Our tour guide, Renata was excellent and very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Our accommodations were excellent and the hotels take care of bringing your luggage in your rooms and taking them to the bus again when necessary. Everything was taken care of for you. Renata made sure we saw all the lovely sights in the areas we visited with extra surprises in between. Our bus driver was very competent and brought us around very safely. We went to all the optional tours which were all very different. Everyone must go to the wonderful and entertaining Folklore Dinner in Budapest, There is quite a bit of walking in some places and would recommend good walking shoes with thick soles. Our group was great, a lot of fun and very friendly and all from the US now and could speak English. The weather was great, a little warm but it was August. We did get time to sit and rest if tired. I loved all out of the way places Renata took us to. I think everyone had a great time and it was a very memorable trip exactly what we all wanted. We have traveled with smarTours before and had a great tour then too. I felt sorry for the Viking Cruise people who were not able to cruise since the water was too low in the Danube, They did not get the experience they paid for and heard that future cruises were cancelled until there was more water in the river.

Great experience, our tour guide Pavel was amazing , very patient and extremely knowledgeable. Tours covered popular sights and allowed ample free time to explore on our own. The optional tours were also very good as well. Recommend the Folklore dinner show in Budapest. Will definitely travel with Smartours again.

Budapest-Vienna-Prague

This was our first tour with Smartours, and thanks to our superb guide Renata it was a great experience. She was so helpful and so knowledgeable that even the most experienced travelers utilized her guidance.
We strongly recommend the Folklore Dinner Show in Budapest and the Vltava River cruise in Prague, although all optional tours were great.

Budapest, Vienna and Prague

My friends and I went on this tour August 19, 2015. It was wonderful and well worth the money! Our tour guides were very knowledgable and the hotels and breakfasts were excellent. We were also fortunate to have beautiful weather! I definitely recommend this trip.

by Katie on smarTours
Amazing Tour!

My sister and I recently returned from the 11 day Budapest, Vienna, and Prague tour. We were completely blown away. Not only are the tour guides extremely knowledge about any and all sites along the way, but they give you an interesting look into the every day life of the city. This tour was the perfect combination of planned activities and free time; you visit the must sees but have time to explore on your own. The extra excursions are well worth it! The hotels were very nice, the rooms were big, and the breakfast provided at each was delicious. The bus was nice with plenty of room to spread out. If you are considering this tour, book it now.
