We enjoyed this performance not only of the Hungarian Dancers but the musicians. This was a professional production and we would recommend it to anyone who would like to have an enjoyable evening out.

Very nice show. I experienced a number of authentic Hungarian dances. Also music was nice and original. Transportation from hotel to show venue and back was seamless and professional. Ticketing and seating were efficient. In less than 2 minutes from reaching the venue, we were on our seats.

We opted for the premium tickets which guaranteed front row seating and a hotel pick up and drop. We got everything that was promised and more. Right up in front, in the middle of the second row we sat, while we were entertained by pulsating performances by Hungary's premier dance troupes and accompanying musicians. The dresses worn by the performers and their professional adeptness had the audience spellbound. If you like cultural performances and are open to new experiences, this is definitely an activity you should consider! Felicia Variava Albert, Managing Director, Blaze Tours and Travels Pvt.

This performance was a highlight of my trip to Budapest. The dance troupe was highly professional, and the male dancers, in particular, amazed us with their athletics and stamina. Costumes and music added to the visual and auditory effects. The dancers used their shoes as percussion instruments, much as flamenco artists do. Wonderful!!!

Great performance, and the finest care throughout. Not only the pickup from the hotel was on time but the return included also a young lagy who made sure that we get to the right cab all prepaid to our return to the hotel.

We went to the performance on our last night in Budapest. The orchestra were fabulous, but we particularly enjoyed all the dances. It was good fun and all the everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves! The concert took place at the Duna Palota, which was incredibly beautiful inside.

It was a dream come true to see one of the State Ensembles live that I listened to on scratchy 45s while learning Eastern European folk dances in college during the 70s at the University of Chicago. Hungarian folk dances were always some of the favorites, and Hungarian State Ensemble did not disappoint. Lots of energy, lots of boot slapping, and great music from live musicians, not pre-recorded. Wonderful evening in Budapest!
