This was a really fun tour. Our guide was super knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour as it covers a lot of territory in a short period of time.
Our experience of this was great. Our 25 year old guide was a mine of information. We wore ponchos as we had 4 1/2 hours of snow and rain but it did not dull the experience. Do this at the start of your holiday as it will come in useful when travelling yourselves to all the areas. We could ask our guide about any information we needed and he knew the answer. Very enjoyable and well worth the money.
This was an amazing tour I would highly recommend, in fact I have to friends who are visiting Budapest in March. I think our guides name was George and he was very engaging and knowledgeable and helped us make the most of our relatively short stay in this amazing city. Do the walking tour first as you arrive in Budapest and then you have a good idea of where you need to return to or other places that the guide recommends.
Traveling with a friend we found this tour through Viator Company Name: Absolute Tours and it was definitely our favorite part of our weekend. We did the tour on a Sunday at the end of January. There were only 4 people total on the tour. The guide, Bálint was absolutely perfect he spoke great English and mixed in history, current events, and humor into each location we visited. You could feel the passion he has for Hungary. The pace of the tour was perfect a mixture of walking, train riding, and sitting. 3.5 hour walking tour may seem like a lot but it wasnt walking straight the entire time, definitely time to enjoy the sites and stop and listen to Bálint tell you about the history. We stopped at one point at a pastry shop for strudels which were out of this world I went with Bálints recommendation Poppy Seed and Cheese and Cherry superb!.
This tour was a very good introduction for the city especially since this is my first time in Budapest and we have very limited time in the city. We started the day at the tour company office we saw the main sights including the Opera house Heroe's square the chain bridge and the castle district.

The tour was great! Our guide, Thomas, was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions.
GREAT GUIDE VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE GOT SEE SO MUCH MORE AND A NICE COFFEE AND PASTRIES
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Showed a great sample of the sights of Budapest old town and included coffee and strudel
Loved Budapest and this walking tour was a great way to see some of its many highlights assisted by an excellent guide.
The two standouts were the area around Heroes' Square that included a castle, monuments, park and thermal baths.
The other standout was Fisherman's Bastion on Castle Hill at the other end of Andrassy Avenue. This would have been about an hours walk, but due to time constraints we took the historic underground train which was included in the tour price.
Fisherman's Bastion has great views over the city that includes Parliament House.
Other interesting things we did on the tour was a visit to St Stephens' Basilica, a walk across the Chain Bridge and some time out at a coffee shop for a drink and some pastries that were also included in the price.
This is a really good tour. You do do a lot of walking but at a steady pace. Our guide was excellent and full of information. Book this tour for the first morning in the city then you can go back and revisit to see inside some of the cities.
The tour was wonderful! Our guide George did a great job teaching us about beautiful Budapest and all its interesting history! It was chilly but we had such a great time that it was worth it ! George even stayed a little longer on our tour just to teach us more interesting facts. Awesome tour!
Great, great experience. George kept us completely engaged the whole time. Had a great time learning so much about the history of Budapest. Enjoyed taking metro twice, sit down in restaurant for great variety of strudels.
Viki was our guide on the walking tour and she was excellent. She explained the history of Budapest, we took the Metro to different areas, had the best strudel and it was a great introduction to a magnificent city. Thank you Viki!
Balint, our guide from Absolute tours, was great. Small collegial group of nine people walked for four hours through Budapest. Balint's knowledge and insights outstanding. He had a great sense of humour and was very accommodating, in that he added things to our tour based on our interests. Start point very easy to find as it was behind the Opera House. Thank you!
Excellent Tour our guide spoke English and Spanish. The pace of the tour was excellent and she knew the history of the city.
Really enjoyed the tour! Best way to get familiar with Budapest if you've never been there before. Guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
A great tour, Christina was a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable. We saw all the main sights on the Pest side, Opera House, Peoples Square the baths, it was great to experience the underground with a guide. Strudels and coffee were perfectly timed. Over Chain Bridge where we should have walked up to St Mattias but we took a bus as we were way over the time the tour was supposed to take. Over time because of 4 late arrivals at the start and then Christina spent time arranging for a taxi for 2 older people who wanted leave the tour. Christina handled this professionally and there was no way our tour was compromised by these two issues. It was a great way to see the city at the start of a 4 day stay and get your bearings. I would recommend this tour. We found it an easy comfortable pace.
George was an excellent tour guide. He combined humor with facts to make for an educational, yet, enjoyable tour.
Very good guide - very interesting, informative and engaging tour!
The tour was a combination of walking and public transportation, which made it fun and allowed us to cover more of the town. Zsolt was a great guide. As a history teacher and student himself, he had a depth of events that tied the tour together and provided meaning for the sights.
Our tour guide Adrienn was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about Budapest history and culture. I would highly recommend this tour.
Laslo was great. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Great tour for day one to help plan the rest of your trip.
