Our tour guide was Veronica, and we really enjoyed the places she took us, as well as her detailed knowledge of Hungarian and European history. She could answer any questions we had, and was genuinely excited about showing us around the city.

The guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the walk very interesting. It gave us a good overview of the city and helped us learn our way around and also gave us ideas on other things she suggested we visit.

Excellent introduction to landmark moments of local history, and also a good way to remember the highlights of Hungarian and European history relevant to the objectives seen during the tour.

A good and informative guide but for someone from central EU or some knowledge of EU history this could be a bit redundant but there is still enough trivia.

Great tour for a high-level overview of the city's culture and history.
