Great Private Walking Tour of Buda Castle District in Budapest
, Sep 2019
Our guide, Kata, was exceptionally knowledgeable and engaging. She matched our pace and shared so much of the history of the area. She answered all our questions with patience and grace. She was so personable, and her enthusiasm was contagious.
Wonderful Tour

What a great small group tour of the Buda Castle District! There were four of us and our tour guide Kata was awesome! She told us lots of interesting historical information, as well as fun stories about the people who were important to the era. She made our tour very enjoyable!
Fascinating walk though Castle District

We had a thoroughly enjoyable walking tour through the old castle district covering the various architectures, building usage, house names (yes there is a red hedgehog building) and so much more. Our local guide Kata Hidasi was so good making the history really come alive with her stories and the logical sequence we followed. We took the option of having her guide us through St Mathias Church which was definitely well worth it. A highlight of our stay in Budapest.
5 stars just for the guide

The Castle District is a little misleading - you're not going to visit a castle. It's the old town area which is mostly rebuilt because it was damaged so extensively during WWII. It was quiet & not very touristy, except by the church. Our guide, Veronica, was EXCELLENT. She made what could've been a boring tour very interesting. She started the tour with a concise yet brief history of Hungary & was a wealth of information. St. Matthias' church was good, but there's an extra charge. Had this tour been with a bad guide, I would've marked it lower - but Veronica made the tour good.
Amazing history with Marianna
, Jun 2019
This was a fantastic half day tour of the Buda District led by Marianna. She was the most wonderful guide. She shared with us the 1,000+ year history of Hungary in a way that made it incredibly entertaining. And she showed us all the key sites in the Buda Castle district. Her own personal stories of what it was like under Soviet occupation were fascinating. It was a great way to get to learn a little bit about Budapest. Thank you Marianna!
Fabulous tour guide

Marianna was extremely knowledgeable- we learnt so much about Budapest's history. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
Outstanding walking history lesson

Katie is an excellent tour guide. She gave us a broad overview of the history of Hungary and Budapest while she navigated us through the Castle District. She pointed small important details and told anecdotes that helped us better understand the culture and lifestyle of the people who lived in the area over the centuries. Highly recommended.
