Thoroughly recommended

Vikki gave us a valuable insight into Budapest, she kept us interested despite the bitterly cold day. It is an ideal way to get to know a city so I recommend a tour is taken early in a visit. Learning so much about Budapest and life in the City that a good tip is worth every forint (or Euro), there was also no pressure on tipping but you would have to be the meanest person on Earth not to pay for your time with one of the guides.

Best overview possible, with a very friendly guide

I only had a weekend to spend in Budapest and this tour provided a great introduction to the city's sights. My guide also made recommendations for evening entertainment, food and other tours. I learned a lot of interesting facts and felt very well taken care of - I will definitely come back and in the meantime recommend this tour to everyone who will listen!
