Great tour and our guide Cristina was wonderful! The highlight of the tour was definitely visiting St. Mathias church, the views from the Fisherman's Bastion and the break with snacks at a local shop. The other pleasant surprise was that this tour said 2.5 hours but it actually lasted a bit over 3 hours. It would have been good to know this for sure, since we had another tour afterwards, which limited our time getting there. Overall a very nice experience.

Kristine was our guide around Castle hill She was welcoming and gently lead us through the history of Budapest, and St. Mathias church. She answered all our questions and her calm demeanor made our stroll on the hill so very pleasant. I would recommend Kristina as a tour guide anytime!!!

On the Budapest Castle Walking Tour we had the opportunity to visit Matthias Church and learn about its history. It is definitely one of the most unique and most beautiful churches we have seen in Europe. It was nice that the Fisherman's Bastion was included in the tour, but we felt slightly rushed through this portion we would have enjoyed more time to walk the entire length to enjoy the view of the city. The coffee and cake was an enjoyable break and chance to relax. Our tour guide, George, was very knowledgeable about the history of Budapest and we enjoyed having him as our guide.

Generally the tour was ok. We visited Fishermen Bastion, Matthias Church, Royal Palace, The guiding could have been richer in information and stories, make the whole thing more unforgettable. But it is possible for a foreign tourist the info was sufficient, I am complaing just because as local I know more about these buildings, its history and just because off this base, I wanted even more.

The guide I can't remember his name was great. My family ended up having a private tour since no one else had booked on this day. The tour guide was very personable and informative. I would defiantly recommend this tour!

I was so lucky on this tour and had an awesome guide all to myself. I don't know her name but she had brown hair, blue eyes from Transylvania and is very new. She asked me what I wanted to learn and do which was the only time on my vacation that happened and I loved it! Because my History tour cancelled last minute :, I asked her for history and she did an awesome job, starting at the first which really helped. I had already seen the Church so she agreed to climb the bell tower with me and I appreciated how flexible she was to the change of plans.

She even helped me with the Tram on the way home, what an exceptional person!
