What our Clients say

Dear Zsuzsa and Kata,
Thank  you for a wonderful tour, and all your careful planning and excellent arrangements.  I hope you got some rest before embarking on a tour with another group,  because it is very intense for you.  Here is the little poem I wrote the last day.  I have sent it to Denise.

To Kata, Zsuzsa and Denise
THe very best guides in Europe East:
You cared for all our Elder Hostel needs
From lectures and sightseeing to shopping for beads.
In the heat, or the rain and the storm
You made us feel comfortable and warm.
We raise our glasses in a heartfelt toast
In Prague and Budapest you were the most.

Many thanks,
Marilyn  S

It was a great great great weekend overall with all the arrangements. I can’t really thank you enough arranging all for us. Agnes was amazing and so was the driver and the car. I can’t express enough how happy and pleased we were with the tour and the information you have provided us. It was just as we wanted it to be. We enjoyed every second of it.

Ann W, Middletown, CT - USA, 2017

Dear Kata, Belated but sincere thanks for everything that you did to make our trip so wonderful. We really appreciated your knowledge and enthusiasm. You made sure that we enjoyed Budapest and also learned about its past. We will never forget the evening river cruise. Could you please give our best to Ági, too? Her thoughtfulness and love of music enlivened our trip so much. And she was always taking care of us - bringing up the rear; watching to be sure that people who stopped to take pictures were not standing in the middle of the street - with patience and good humor. Thank you for these pictures which are a great reminder of an amazing experience and of the two of you. Best, Ann and Mal

Banna R, Oswego, NY - USA, 2017

Dear Ági, My husband and I enjoyed our entire Road Scholar trip immensely. We’d never traveled as part of a group before and were somewhat wary. Well, we’ve been singing the praises of Road Scholar to anyone who’ll listen since the moment we got home. It was a pleasure to fill out the questionnaire after our return, and you can be sure you got the highest possible marks. We were awed by the breadth and depth of your knowledge, by your sense of humor, your perspective, your unfailing energy and good spirits, and your genuine concern for all the members of the group. Brava! I don’t know how often you work as a tour leader, but I do know that anyone who’s under your wing is in for a remarkable experience. Again, many thanks and every imaginable good wish, Banna

Sheila & Tom R, Cincinnati, OH - USA, 2015

Hi Kata - it is so nice to hear from you! I'm glad that you enjoyed the photos from our wonderful trip last September. They bring back very pleasant memories for me. The Hungary portion of the trip was our favorite part. Sheila has made some tasty paprikash and a few other dishes with your mother's paprika - thank you for such a special birthday gift! Many thanks for helping to make our first Road Scholar event a fun and memorable trip for Sheila and me!

Jan M, Bellewue, WA - USA, 2017

Vyvienne, we finished our adventures in Budapest today and are preparing to travel home tomorrow. We had a great visit in Budapest. Our guide, Katalin was excellent — knowledgeable, personable, flexible, professional. We all felt most fortunate to have her with us. The driver and vehicle were also excellent. And, we lucked out with the weather, rain on some nights but sunshine, nice breezes and no rain during our time out and about. A bit warm in a the afternoons but that was okay. I'll be in touch after we get home. Meantime, thanks for all you did to help make our trip a success. Jan

Eleanor S, New York, NY - USA - 2016

Dear Kata and Agi, I returned from my wonderful European trip this past Saturday night. I did have a most enjoyable stay in your lovely city and an excellent tour with you, Agi. I appreciate your reviewing our time together. It will be very helpful when I refer to my photos and consult my daily journal of activities when on my vacation. Agi was a terrific guide, Kata. She made sure I saw all the locations I had requested and in an efficient walking and public transportation manner. I just didn’t have enough time to see them all sufficiently so that means I will have to return to Budapest in the future. And, yes Agi, I will bring a bathing suit for the thermal baths! The Hotel you recommended was a happy choice both for accommodations and location. And your Parliament Building is magnificent. The remainder of my trip, with Road Scholar to Vienna and Prague, was one of the best I’ve taken. So I am indeed fortunate to have seen, with experts, three of Europe’s most valuable cities. My thanks to you both and I send wishes for a happy, healthy, sunny summer. Cordially, Eleanor
