Go Ahead Trip to Vienna, Budapest and PragueAuthor: Jenice V.
Date of Trip: June 2009
Some suggestions: We used our ATM card to draw local currency and had no problems doing this. We used a Capitol One card for purchases as they do not charge for purchases in Europe. You should have some small bills/coins for the local guides, bell boys, bus drivers, etc. We did wash out some clothing in a sink and used the hotel's iron and board once. When buying bottled water, ask for "no gas" or "still" water (usually a pink cap). Otherwise you will get carbonated water that tastes like Alka Seltzer. Coke and soda in general is very expensive. You can drink water, beer and wine cheaper than soda. There is a lot of walking on this tour. Many streets are cobble stone and thick soled shoes are recommended. Ice machines are not available in the hotels in Budapest and Vienna. We would ask the bar for glasses of ice. The Holiday Inn did have ice machines on 2 floors, but they are shut off between 9 PM and 9 AM due to noise. The tour will recommend an amount you should tip the tour guide and bus driver and will provide envelopes. They are worth every penny! If you have any questions regarding this tour, I will be happy to answer them.
I would highly recommend Go Ahead and plan to tour with them again.
