Excellent guide with very extensive knowledge. Interesting, informative and well-paced. Would highly recommend as a good introduction to Budapest, it's history and culture.
I must say that I have never received such a poor service from Viator:
The “local agency” mentioned in my voucher to this Budapest city tour was not a “local” agency, but an intermediary agency based in Austria! Consequently, the so-called local phone number was an international phone number of Vienna!
Nevertheless I phoned this so-called local agency the day before (as stated in the voucher) in order to confirm the pickup time at my hotel in Budapest (Sofitel Chain Bridge).
The lady confirmed that I should wait in the lobby by 9:30 am.
So I did…
I waited until 9:45 and nobody appeared to pick us up. The tour was supposed to start at 10:00. So I began to be somewhat anxious and I asked for the help of the Concierge, who also considered quite odd that the so-called local agency had a phone number of Vienna…
She called them and, after insisting, she got the name and the phone number of the real local agency (Eurama) based in Budapest, more exactly in front of our hotel!
She called them and they said that they were not expecting to pick us up at the Sofitel, since we were staying at an extremely short walk distance (which we did not know and was never told to me!).
Finally, at 9:55 a nice man showed up in the lobby asking for us. He walked us through the 80 meters walkway between Sofitel Chain Bridge and Intercontinental Hotel (just in front) were the Eurama agency is based.
The minibus was waiting for nobody else except us and we finally managed to join our tour (just 5 minutes before departure) mostly due to the Sofitel’s Concierge help…
The tour was ok, but the beginning almost ruined the whole experience…
I loved that I was given the chance to experience the culture and history of the city with plenty of time to see the main attractions. The guide was knowledgable and made it easy to understand how the city's history had influenced its current culture. Great way to experience a beautiful city.
Fantastic Tour! Will join again!
Excellent. Tour Guide was terrific. She covered every detail but was not just a talking machine. Would use Viator for our tours again.
Great tour. Very knowledgeable and friendly guide
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and as it was a very small group it was nice to have her all to ourselves. The place we went to for the strudels was lovely and it so nice to have a hot drink and get out of the cold weather and to break up the tour.
Great tour covered from one end of the city to the other and visited all the highlites, the Szechenyi Baths visit sent us back the next afternoon for a great chill out time and wonderful people watching !! Our guide spoke perfect English and made the interesting and enjoyable. The Metro was fun
Great guide! Tour also used the metro which enabled us to see more of Budapest.The tour is far better then compable bus tours and less costly.
A very nice introduction to
Budapest. The tour was great and I am glad I chose to do it. My only suggestion would be give everyone a quick headsup before leaving a spot for a photo opportunity.
Great tour with a very good guide, Anita. Very friendly, English excellent and very knowledgable, Great tour would highly recommend.
This tour was fantastic, giving us us an overview of the city. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and helpful in recommended other things to see in Budapest. The tour included a stop for pastries and coffee. This tour was offered at a reduced price when we booked; it was an incredible bargain!
Excellent, a brilliant introduction to Budapest and the coffee and strudel much appreciated by all.
We arrange the tour for the first morning following arrival the previous evening. It gave us a good introduction to the city and location of the various sites. Knowledgeable Hungarian guide answered all questions. Excellent tour.
What an awesome walking tour. I go on similar tours in every main city I visit in order to check out all the top sights. This is by far and away the best. Plus 2 free strudels and a drink. Bargain price. Tour Guide Julia was absolutely immense and made the trip a pleasure to be part of. Top girl :)
