    Gate 1 was good and the tour guide was really helpfull and supplied everyone with water throughout the whole trip. Katarina helped everyone with departures the day of departure and helped us get taxis whenever we needed. She was great and I would enjoy another tour with her.

    The food on the boat tour (Budapest) was very dissapointing...From the soup to the all desserts.
