Our hike in the Buda Hills with Laszlo was very enjoyable. The scenery was fantastic, and Laszlo, our guide was a pleasure to be with. Not only did he provide a good hike, he filled us in on the history of the area and gave an impromptu lesson in picking mushrooms! We could not have had a better experience.

My hike in the Buda Hills was enjoyable and Laszlo was the best tour guide I could have asked for. I was lucky to have a private tour as the other person cancelled at the last minute

Had a wonderful hike with guide Laszlo through the Buda Hills and to the tower for a beautiful view of the city. The day even included photos and a stop for strudel!
