Peter, our very knowledgable and personable guide from Discover Budapest led us on a night walking tour of Budapest. Our group was very small, 4 of us, so questions and insight could be easily shared. We really felt like a local was showing us around this beautiful city. Eventually we made our way to the Danube River where we boarded the Legenda river cruise. Seeing the buildings, particularly the Parliament Building, lit up is unforgettable.

This was a very personalised tour because there were only two of us, so we were able to ask George lots of questions about stuff that interested us. He is obviously passionate about Budapest's history and had excellent knowledge. The cruise was a lovely way to finish the evening.

Our guide, Anna, was enthusiastic and happy to answer lots of questions. The tour gave me a great insight into Hungary and Budapest that would have passed me by. Despite the rain, Anna kept all our spirits high and everyone enjoyed the tour.

Stunning. When you are in an amazing city full of a long and rich history, you need a guide that is full of knowledge and has a good sense of humour. Our guide Lazlo was all of the above, not only still enthusiastic when he realised it was only the 2 of us that would be on the tour but took the time to engage with us, ensure we were having a great time and had answers to all of our off the cuff questions!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Beautiful night tour! Budapest looked magical at night! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and entertaining!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

Budapest is a city that takes on a completely different take at night, and a cruise like this is the only way to see that. One could pay attention to the commentary or just take in the sights. It was a great thing to do.

I booked this in advance and turned up to find I was the only person on the tour that evening. BONUS! So I had a personal guide in Anita. She tailored the tour specifically to me and my interests (Communism, Holocaust, Occupation) as well as showing me some of the places I should revist later in the week. I'm sure if there were similar interests in any group she would add in the extra bits. She also took note that this was my second tour of the city, having been on a bus tour earlier in the day that took in many of the main attractions in the city - this was to be a more personal tour.
Anita showed me the places that don't always feature in the guide books - a cafe, situated in a book store but occupying a Baroque Ball Room that I would recommend to anyone who visits the city. She had her own stories and was happy to discuss the recent Internet Tax Protest. We stopped at various points that I hadn't known about and explained their significance and history, including monuments, statues, memorials and people/figures from Hungarian History.
The city looks totally different at night and gives some significance to different memorials and this was to be my favourite evening in Budapest.
