    We had a great time touring Budapest, Vienna, and Prague. Everything was well planned and thought out. We didn't have to worry about transportation, tours, and even some meals. Our Tour Manager, Sue, was wonderful. She upbeat, positive, shared a wealth of information about each city we were in. She went above and beyond of what was expected. She was kind to everyone on the tour, which can be a challenge :-). Our driver Gabor, was also amazing. He was kind, courteous, and a very safe driver! This was our first time to Europe, and we were not disappointed. We many guided tours and also free time to explore on our own, which allowed us to see so much stuff. The guides in each city were knowledgable and entertaining. We will definitely do another Affordabletours.com/Gate1 Travel tour again.
