A well run tour that visited several sites around Lake Balaton whilst learning about the region & Hungary in general. The pace was right with enough stops to keep everyone engaged. Many thanks to our guide Cecilia who was a wealth of information & our driver Laz? who took us from stop to stop in a safe & professional manner.
