Provides a very good view of this marvelous city when you only have one day to spend.

This day trip to Budapest made it a rather long day. However, the trip was worthwhile - especially if you have limited time available in Europe. The Budapest guide showed us the highlights of the city, and allowed us time to explore on our own e.g. there was enough time to take a late afternoon cruise on the Danube. I would really like to return and spend a few more days there exploring the sights. The recommended lunch stop was a good choice - traditional Hungarian food, good service, and reasonable prices and you can pay in Euros.

Excellent Tour Director. Personable, knowledgeable, and fun. Would have loved to stay longer and to visit some of the historic buildings not available on this tour, but time did not allow a different tour. Will be back!

Definately worth the experience for a day! Don't buy anything from the tour guide souvenir shop pics, overpriced, just wait until you are given free time!

I enjoyed the historic areas of Budapest and our guide had a good sense of humor and was knowledgeable. Although there is quite a bit of time spent on the bus, be aware that this is a walking tour. There are a lot of stairs and hills and you should be in fairly good shape and mobile to do this.

Great way to see Budapest if have short amount of time in area. Tour guide was lovely!!! Also made us feel very safe as it happened to be a day that thousands of Syrian refugees were crossing the Hungarian border. Would highly recommend this tour company!
