We were very lucky - we got a best tour ever - Aneko - maybe her name is spelt wrong - really good - she spent 5 hours , knew Budapest like the back of her hand - she was born in Budapest and clearly loved the history and know her stuff - she also took us into a coffee house and would no let us pay for coffee and cake - I,ve done number of these city tours and she was by far the best ! worth every penny regards Stew and Lindsey
