We met Andi at our hotel. Her English was impeccable and she was very friendly. We were very impressed with her knowledge and it was really good to find out about the history of Budapest. The tour lasted around 4 hours. We did the tour on our first morning in the city and it was great for getting our bearings and finding out what we wanted to go back to to see in more detail. We started in the Castle District around our hotel and then walked across the Chain Bridge into Pest. Andi took us for a drink and strudel in a lovely cafe. We went on the Metro out to Heroes Square which was very interesting. It was great with just the two of us and Andi. We could ask questions and go at our own pace rather than being in a large group. Can't recommend highly enough.
A must see and visit...rich in culture and history. Our tour guide George was excellent and full of knowledge. This country has lots of beautiful buildings, museum, castles, churches, etc. Don't forget to dip into their ever popular baths with the therapeutic warm water and savour their pastry and desserts later.
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.
