The walking tour was a fantastic way to get the highlights of the city. Anita was a great guide. She was very open to all questions and very enjoyable to spend the 4 hours with. I'd really recommend this tour to anyone. We even got to bring our dog along:)
Amazing value for money, really interesting and our guide Andi was fantastic. The tour lasted for well over 4 hours. Definitely recommended.
The itinerary is fantastic - we covered all the main tourist sights by foot and by public transport plus some insider bonus experiences. I was lucky enough to be the only person to show up so had my own personal guide, Brigit. She's a local and is a font of information as well as being a delightful young person. The tour covers both the Buda and Pest sides of the Danube. Our morning tea at the old Strudel House was a highlight and something I would never have known about let alone been able to find on my own. I simply can't recommend this tour highly enough....one of the best I've ever done.
The guide took us to the most important tourist areas and was able to answer all questions. Maybe an additional boat tour on theDanube would be nice
Great tour. Tamas was our guide, and he was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He made the tour fund and interesting. The time went by quickly. Tamas was very receptive and responsive to our questions. This tour was well worth the time and money.
Our guide Anita was amazing! We learned so much about Budapest and the Hungarian culture specifically. The pasteries were amazing as well---I suggest trying the plum, SO GOOD! We thoroughly enjoyed this tour!
Great morning spent walking, at a leisurely and level pace ( apart from the walk up the steps to the Castle!)round Budapest. Incorporated a ride on the Metro and a lovely morning break which included a beverage and 2 slices of Strudel - of course we returned the next day for more ! All in all - highly recommended and our local guide Kinga was great !
We were fortunate to gave a very small group and an excellent tour guide, Brigit. She taught us a lot about Hungarian and Budapest history and the year 1896! The tour was thorough, easy to understand, and a lot of fun. Definitely worth it.
Unlike Danube bend tour (which has a great itinerary but the guide was disappointing), this tour was interesting, fun, good exercise and Anita the guide was outstanding! Her speaking and English skills were outstanding, she presented well, had a good pace was considerate of everyone in the group. She has the knowledge of the sights, sounds, history, people and places and would love to have her as a guide on any Budapest tour. The only take a maximum of 15 in the group and think we had 10. There is even a short stop for strudel which was tasty! It's a great value, good way to capture some of the sights and history of the area (and country) but it all comes down to the way it's delivered: Anita was the best!
Great guide, took us for over 3 1/2 hours, on a easy walking tour, showed us how to use the underground, and had delicious strudel at the Strudel House!
Our guide Bridget was great, very knowledgeable and personable. Clearly she has a lot of pride in being Hungarian and wanted to share that with us. She wound up giving us a 4 hour tour because she wanted to make sure we saw some of her favorite places. I hadn't realized that coffee and strudel came with the tour so that was such a nice surprise. She took us to a very charming coffee house with great strudel. There were a number of sites I wanted to make sure we saw and she took us to most of them (Basilica, Opera House, Hero's Square, the attached park, the Castle, coffee house, etc). She also gave us some really great recommendations for restaurants serving authentic Hungarian food. Great choices. I HIGHLY recommend this walking tour. Well worth the time.
This was the best way to spend the first day in Budapest. Our tour guide, Briget, was friendly, personable and very knowlegeable about the history of the sites we visited. She also told us how the Metro worked and which bus to catch in the event we wanted to come back to a site later. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would certainly advise others to book it!!
This tour was much better than we expected. It took us ALL over the city. It is a great tour to do right away because our wonderful guide Eveline taught us how to use the Metro and the bus lines which we did for the rest of the week. She was VERY imformative on the history of Budapest. and gave us some great restaurant suggestions too. The Strudel shop was wonderful. GREAT tour highly recommended.
We really enjoyed our guided tour which was led by Laszlo. It as a really great introduction to the city and the History of Hungary. Travelling on the metro and by bus, as well as walking through different areas of the city we gained knowledge of the area and experience of the transport system so that we had the confidence to do a lot more exploring over the following days. A really great trip to take when you first arrive in the city. Laszlo gave us tips regarding visits to The Opera, good restaurants to try, places to visit . We took his advice and had a truly wonderful time. He even played the Hungarian National Anthem for us on his flute, a mournful tune that summed up the turbulent times that Hungary has lived through in the past. Laszlo, many thanks for a super trip. We do hope your little boy is now feeling much better. ( He was poorly when we were visiting)
Our guide, Andi, gave us a wonderful walking tour. I enjoyed the tour a lot.
Wonderful way to see this beautiful city and to get a real sense of its rich history and culture. The guide, Andi, was really very good, and the tour offers excellent value for money - and some good exercise thrown in!
I would like to highly recommend this walking tour. Our guide was a young woman called Andi, and proved to be highly knowledgeable, thorough, and in no hurry to get rid of us! She also has a good sense of humour. Nothing was too much trouble. The tour included use of one of metro systems, which took us to Heroes square and other sights. Mind the doors, as you only get 8 seconds to get on or off ! We enjoyed crossing the Danube to the main attractions of Buda. Very good.
Really good tour for an overview of Budapest. The guide Bridget was fab and gave us some interesting facts about the history of Hungary.
We went on this walking tour last week. It was absolutely brilliant!! We were extremely lucky that only the both of us had booked the tour so we had the tour guide to ourselves. Anna was really superb and showed us all the sights and explained things really well. It gave us a great insite of what to see in the city and on the subsequent days we went back to see a lot of the places in more detail. Thanks Anna of your recommendation od the "Bulls Blood" . we had it with our meal in a typical tradinitional Hungarioan Restaurant ( with the Goulash as recommended) and it was superb!!!
We visit a lot of citys for a city break and i would have NO hesitation in recommending Viator. We have already booked our tours with them for our forthcomong visits to Lisbon and Iceland. Thank you Viator and special thanks to Anna- a great job!!
Fantastic...........Our tour guide Kinga was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave us lots of information we would never have known without her.The tour was excellent value and even included coffee, cake.
Anna was an excellent guide, friendly and very informative. It was fun going on the underground, seeing the sights of which there are many and eating coffee and strudels half way through.
I would highly recommend this tour. Small group - 9 of us - and our guide Bernadette was excellent, authoritative and fun. It gave us a great overview of the city on our first day so we could then go back and explore places in more detail at our leisure. The break at the Strudel House was perfect - delicious strudel, and a chance to chat with fellow visitors.
31st October dawned warm and sunny and was a perfect day for a walking tour in Budapest. Our guide Anita combined a relaxed approach with a lot of knowledge about the city. Our tour lasted almost four hours and we saw all major sites but it never felt that we were rushed or too much to take in. We got good advice about other places to visit and a brilliant restaurant for dinner. All in all great value for money and added considerably to our good memories of this short break in Budapest.
