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). :)

Fenomenal la guía Vera. Nos ha explicado los puntos de interés e información de contexto. Ha sido flexible y eficiente y eso nos ha permitido cubrir el programa: ver el museo y la fábrica de cerámica Herend, darnos un baño en el lago Balatón, tomar fotos bonitas, una comida correcta, helados riquísimos y varios paseos de interés (abadía de Tihany, muelle y hospital en Balatonfured)
