My partner and I had an absolutely wonderful tour with our tour guide Christina! she taught us so much about each monument, the history and all the reasons. She was so lovely and made the start of our trip wonderful. The coffee stop was really nice too and such a great place! We highly recommend this tour trip and We will definitely be recommending to family & friends.

This was a wonderful way to see some of the main attractions of the city. Our guide Orsi was terrific; extremely knowledgeable & friendly and I would recommend her in a heartbeat! While it is a 3 hour walking tour, the pace and terrain is easygoing. I would not hesitate to use them again for another tour :)

We had Kristina as our tour guide, she was amazing. The history of Budapest/Hungary is fascinating, we really went into the older history of the country, and ended in current day. Our tour guide was friendly informative and the coffee shop/snack was to die for..do it!

It was a fantastic way to see a number of parts of Buda and Pest - particularly Pest. Rebecca, our guide, was animated, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and engaging. I would strongly recommend this tour.

Great tour.l. Only four of us, with an English speaking guide who was very knowledgable and fun. Really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend.
