What people are saying about Budapest City Park

Lots of insider information & nice boat trip

We booked a whole city tour the day before and thought that on this somewhat special tour we would delve a little deeper into history and see even more exciting places. Unfortunately that was not the case. In addition, we were of the opinion that the boat tour was part of the tour and you would go on board with the guide to get some insider information from the Danube and to ask certain questions. However, the boat tour takes place independently of the bus tour, at a time that you can choose from three options and where you have to go to the pier yourself. We did the boat trip in the evening which was beautiful !! Unfortunately, there is only a tape and no individual support. Pedro, our guide, was very funny, had a lot of insider information for us and made the tour varied. Nevertheless - for us - this tour was too similar to the City Tour - but the boat trip is highly recommended!


we congratulate the Italian guide Vera, nice, competent. Unfortunately, the tour was not as written in the description: we did not go through Parliament, from the Margherita bridge, we did not visit neither the Matthias Church nor the general markets, nor did we go past it. We understood that there had been some unexpected. However, for those of us who stay in Budapest for only three days, it is essential to have a view of how many beautiful things there are. Thanks to the guide we have known many things. The Danube cruise was beautiful. I recommend this tour to everyone. They are three hours with the guide and then an hour on the boat with explanation in the headphones in the various languages with an aperitif of your choice. very relaxing

Nice overview of the city

Excellent on arrival in Budapest to understand where to linger in the next few days. I suggest to book the visits in the morning because in the afternoon the traffic in Budapest is considerable and the journeys with the Van take longer and you risk seeing little. The guide Susanna proved to be very competent and tried to optimize the times to the maximum. The cruise is very beautiful and well organized.

Perfectly in expectations

Useful tour to see the city if you have limited time! Guide also available to extend the time of the planned stops! Recommended for everyone, especially for the part of the Danube cruise, fantastic at sunset!

Interesting impressions from a beautiful city

After the interesting tour around the city with the bus there was a boat ride on the Danube.
