Tour was excellent with good commentary. Good way to get oriented in Budapest at the start of our stay. We took ourselves back the next day to a number of the places we visited on the tour for a closer look. The tour helped us choose which places we wanted to revisit.
What a great way to see Budapest. Not every sight I wanted to see was covered. But I think for a general overview of Budapest, this is an excellent tour to learn.
We were the only 2 people on this tour - presumably because it was January and cold! Nonetheless, we had the exclusive services of a very knowledgeable local guide who showed us all around Budapest - even taking us for a coffee. He also recommended which baths to visit and an excellent restaurant where we ate the next evening. This tour is an excellent way of starting your stay in Budapest as you see most of the major sites and can then decide where you wish to spend more time.
What a great day we had! Were picked up from our city apartment as well as dropped back. Guide very knowledgeable and helpful. Tour absolutely top class and even the kids enjoyed it. Very good price too.
We were on a small mini bus with a specialist guide. She was great. This tour gave us an appreciation of what to see in Budapest. The city has so much to see that you need an initial tour to get your bearings and to pick out places to return and see. A great way to start off your visit to Budapest. The taxi pickup from my hotel was excellent.
I thought the experience was well worth the money spent. Having a bi-lingual tour guide was nice . The only reason I didn't give this tour a higher score was because the tour guide focused all of her attention on two guests who were Spanish speaking and at the front of the bus. She essentially ignored the rest of the tour group in favor of these two women. That was disappointing. However, the tour itself was worth the money. Pick up went smoothly, bus was comfortable if not a bit warm and the bus driver was EXCELLENT!! He maneuvered some really tight areas really well. I would definitely recommend although hope for a different tour guide.

Great first day tour. Visited the old part of Budapest i.e., Buda and stopped in several places with great vistas. Our tour included two separate groups one in Italian and the other in English. The tour guides had to share the microphone while in the bus. A large bus was used with less than half of the seats occupiedl. It would have been better to use two tour vans for the two groups.
Wonderful tour of the city with an excellent thoughtful guide. Our stay in Budapest was very short so this trip gave us a whistle stop tour. Budapest is a spectacular city with lovely architecture. Definately recommend a visit.
Comfortable coach, very proficient driver and excellent guide. The duration was just right and gave a great insight into the city with lots of info from our very knowledgeable, experienced and friendly guide. Highly recommended.
Great way to get your bearings on your first day in Budapest. Then you can select the best spots to revisit later in your stay.
It was well organized quick tour. I recommend it for The first day.
The taxi at the hotel did not make himself known to us - he should have had a sign with our name on it
TILTON and we would have spotted him.Tour was good
Francis was an excellent tour guide. Sadly it was 1st May so many streets were closed but Charlie the driver and Francis did their best to show as much as possible.
We saw a lot of things on this tour, but our guide, Yolanda, was very hard to understand and most of us only got half the information. But that's alright, I really only listen to the commentary half the time anyway. Beautiful city and it was great to be taken to some of the viewpoints, especially since the funicular wasn't operating.
The tour was comfortable and informative. Gives you a good overview of the city, history and culture. Our guide was great I n 2 languages!
It was nice to see the sites with a small group and personified service.
This was a pretty good tour. THe guide was very knowledgable and it was very interesting to learn some of the history of the different places.
