Our tour guide was very informative and she definitely did a wonderful job. Highly recommend this if you would like to get to know Budapest in a time-limited but informative way.

The first night we arrived in Budapest, we had booked the night walking tour with the river cruise. Our guide was George and he was fantastic! His energy level was contagious, he encouraged questions both of him and those he asked of the group, and he gave us a great overview of the city. We saw many of the main historical sites, which were extraordinarily beautiful through twilight and as evening descended onto Budapest. It really helped us determine where we wanted to revisit later in our trip. We were definitely sad to leave him when we boarded the Danube cruise, but he encouraged us to stop by the shop if we had any questions about what to see later in our trip. The Danube cruise was beautiful, but it was a little long in my opinion and the video on the boat wasn't nearly as entertaining as George. I even found it a little distracting with so many of the beautiful sites right outside the window. Overall, the night walking tour is a great overview of the city and the cruise is a great way to rest your feet after a long day of walking. Highly recommend.

Brigitte gave us a lovely tour. She is passionate and knowledgable about her country. My husband and I were the only ones in this Monday night tour so it was very personal. We highly recommend thus your especially if you do no have a lot of time in Budapest. It is a good way to understand the history and geography.

This trip was wonderful - we learned so much more about the history of Budapest and were able to understand the symbolism behind so many of the incredible sights in the city.

Great tour.. Our guide Zsolt is so well informed.. He knows the history and perhaps everything else about the city and the country.. The tour was very nice and comfortably paced and it showed us practically everything on the Pest side.. The river cruise is NOT TO BE MISSED.. If you are in Budapest for one evening, go for the cruise and leave everything else.. It is the highlight.. Absolutely stunning..

I believe a walking city tour is a great way to start my time in any new location, as it helps to understand the city, culture, layout, etc. This tour was very informative and enjoyable. My guide Petco was very knowledgeable and had many local stories to share. The river cruise was a wonderful way to end the tour. I would definitely recommend.

Excellent. I had a personal tour as I was the only one. This is a good tour to take when you arrive in the city to gain your bearings. The river is magical and teh boat ride offered wonderful perspectives.

This is a must do here. This city glows at night and you will be able to take the best pictures while walking on this tour and on the river cruise.

Our guide Christina was very sweet and informative. She led us around the best parts of the city and then showed us to our boat. The boat had an informative video and commentary in many different languages for everyone. The Danube lights up at night. You will not regret the boat cruise. It goes by pretty quickly.

Excellent tour. 2 hours walking seemed daunting but it went by very quickly. Laszlo was our guide and he paced the tour to participants fitness level or lack there of. He was very knowledge and nice. Highly recommend the tour. Boat cruise on the Danube a must at night.

Our guide was Brigit and she was fantastic! Her delivery entertained even my two kids who aren't easily entertained! She was very knowledgeable and humerous. Highly recommend her and this tour.

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!

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.
