I like to think of myself as a fairly seasoned traveler. I've been to all 48 contiguous U.S. states, all around the Caribbean and Canada; I've been to Japan and the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon. But until this fall, I'd never been to Europe — it was a gaping hole in my traveler's credentials. There are so many places I want to visit in Europe that I really didn't know where to begin, but I've always been fascinated by the Danube River region in Central Europe, so my wife Virginia and I decided to go there for our first European vacation together.
We flew into Budapest and met up with our private tour guide for the week, Helena. We found it very helpful to hire someone to drive us from city to city, facilitate our hotel accommodations and local tour guides, recommend dinner spots and help us navigate the foreign cultures. Helena was a joy to spend the week with but also did a good job giving us some alone time to explore and relax by ourselves, and we highly recommend her and Movis Private Tours, who handled all of the details for us. It just puts your mind at ease to travel knowing that you are in good hands with a trustworthy guide.
