The tour was excellent! We really enjoyed the fact that we first visited Herend and only afterwards – lake Balaton and not vice-versa. The tour guide was very friendly and the tour lasted as long as written in the description. We definitely recommend this for everyone who would like to have a full Balaton lake experience (including swimming).
