I really enjoyed the choir tour to Budapest. We met early at Gatwick and said goodbye to our parents. When we arrived in Budapest, we were greeted by Agnes, our tour guide for the week and she taught us lots of useful information about Hungary.
In the afternoon we explored part of Pest and enjoyed some free time to explore. On the second day we visited the historic part of Buda and saw the Fisherman’s Bastion. In the evening we had our first concert which went really well. It was in a Baroque church in Pest which had lovely acoustics.
On the third day our bus tour of Budapest took us to St Stephen’s Basilica – the largest church in Hungary – which was very impressive and had wonderful mosaic tiling. Our second concert was in the Duna Palace Theatre which was very grand.
