Our guide was amazing, patient and allowed plenty of time for photos and questions!

This was a great tour around an amazing city, and included a very fun guided tour of the inside of the Parliament. Don't hesitate to book this if you're only in Budapest for a few days and want to see as much as possible!

After an initial bus glitch the tour took off. The tour of Parliament House felt a little rushed with the large group. The sightseeing tour that followed was a nice general orientation with the city.

A quick view of the city in the bus and spent some time in major spots such as Hero's Square, Gellert Hill, Trinity Square, Fishermen's Bastion and Matthias Church. However, due to traffic on the bridge crossing back to Parliament House, there was delay in visiting the Parliament. i couldn't join and request to join next day morning tour, had a bit of negotiations with the tour office, luckily managed to solve at last.

Generally speaking, this tour can give you a brief idea of the city.

Visited a lot of places and the guide was good and knew her stuff. A multilingual guide is not as easy to follow as they switch between languages, but nevertheless this was an excellent tour. It would have been difficult to cover so much ground on ones own.

Great tour and very well organised. My hotel booked the pick up for me and it was a private taxi that was there early waiting for me. The parliament house visit was great. The sightseeing tour was also good but the guide was slightly annoying - was trying too hard i think bless him!! Would recommend.

This tour was good. Post the parliament visit was ushered into another bus for the sight seeing tour. Got the impression that i was initiated in the middle of the sight seeing tour and not at the start thus might having missed some part of the tour.

Good Tour to see a little bit of Budapest. Impossible to get in touch with the tour company. When I told them their phone numbers were wrong they shrugged their shoulders and didn’t care. You need to confirm 24 hours in advance but couldn’t cuz of the phone issue.

Such a stunning city and the tour could be fantastic...but you need a guide that likes her city. The only time we saw her come to life with any sort of enthusiasm was when she took us into a terrible store and was encouraging us to purchase souvenirs. Kick back was evident
Gorgeous views...the Parliament House tour had a different guide and was really incredible. This city has an incredible history and with the right guide there is a lot to learn. We just had a guide that seemed to need a nap.
Disappointing.

the perfect guide for this tour ...had an excellent knowledge of the parlement...and was able to share it with everyone on the tour

It may have been the cold rainy weather... or perhaps the lackluster tour guide... but this experience could have been much better.

The Parliament building and tour are magnificent. The remainder of the tour was rather underwhelming with a tour guide that repeated himself constantly, and seemed at a loss for information to share with the participants.
