Tour guide was very informative and displayed a lot of enthusiasm. The guide actually spent more than the allotted time with us, since we asked a number of questions and had a really good dialogue with her about the city. This tour in our opinion was a really good value.
The private walking tour that we did along with the friends we were traveling with was the optimum way to go. Our guide, Ferenc Manu, was fantastic. He provided us with an informative tour and his love of his country was apparent. Within the four hours of the tour we covered many areas of the city and left the tour much more knowledgeable than when we started regarding Budapest and it's history. Excellent value.
Was a great tour. Unfortunately was raining all day.
Our guide iLdiko Bogata was great. She is. Very knowledgable and well traveled. Our itenerary was exactly what we wanted. I would recommend her to anyone that would like a private tour in Budapest.
Very thorough explanations. Great enthusiasm. Adapted the tour to our needs and goals. Great tour.
Very informative walking tour hitting just about all of the sites we wanted to see.
This tour was such a good way to see the highlights of Budapest, there was only two of us with our guide Ballint so we were able to ask questions and get information that would have been difficult in a bigger group. Ballint was a great guide, very intetesting and gave us insight to the history and life in Budapest. The stop at the cafe was lovely, great pastries and really good coffee. Would highly recommend this tour Budapest is an amazing city with an extensive history and this tour provides an awful lot in a few hours.
Excellent. We loved Budapest and Jolst was an excellent guide. His other job is teaching, so he was very good at informing us in interesting ways about the historical sights.
Our guide Brigit was great. She based our tour on what we wanted to see....so there was no repetition on sights we had previously seen. The sights were unique - took us on the subway, we had wonderful pastries at a little shop. She was very knowledgeable ...answered every question without hesitation.
James Kaftar, our guide, was brilliant! Desperately enthusiastic about his country's history and blessed with a great sense of humour. We had a fantastic time and learnt a lot. Loved every minute!
