5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Brilliant. Tamas was fantastic - charming, articulate, funny, knowledgeable and engaging.
He clearly loves his city and that feeling is passed to the group.
The wine and strudel tasting was a great treat.
We only had a day to see Budapest and he covered a huge variety of information - made our day and we will definitely return and hire him again for one of the private tours - worth every penny and then some!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2013

The guide was very good. The tour included a wine tasting and a trip to two markets in Budapest. We were also shown others points of interest which we were not expecting. Overall the tour exceeded our expectations. Well worth the asking price.
