AMAZING! If you have a limited time...
Kandi_H, Mar 2017
AMAZING! If you have a limited time in any city Viator is the way to go! I had one day to see Budapest and Peter driver and Kitty tour guide were nothing short of amazing! Peter dropped us in the best locations and then Kitty and I covered the streets via walking and made it to the top of one of the churches for the best 360 view of the city. What an amazing day that I won't forget soon, this is totally the way to travel if you are looking for a great day trip, Peter and Kitty will make you feel like family and make sure you see all the city has to offer!

Robyn_C, Jan 2020
Great tour in late December 2019. While it was a chilly, rainy day this did not stop us from seeing all the highlights! Just enough history and our guide made the tour light hearted. Very interesting seeing the 2 sides of the river.

Matias_V, Jan 2022
when I booked this tour I emphazise that we´ll be a party of eight. The travel agency send a car for three passengers. After 1 1/2 hour waiting at the lobby, the tour operator arrive with a car fopr seven passenger despite we are a party of 8 for a tour from Viena to Budapest that have a roundtrip of six hours. When I request a bigger car, the travel company request me to ay the double neverthelles I request a tour for 8 persons and not for three. Once again Viator never fulfill their compromise. They just want to collect the money, after that they don´t care nothing about customers and service. Viator the worst travel company I ever see.
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Dear Matias, this is a very unfair review as you know that you made a mistake which was also confirmed by Viator. You booked this tour for only 3people so we sent you a luxury Mercedes Eclass, after reporting from our driver and talking to you we sent you another car within 1hour/the car had to be cleaned after a ride from the previous day/ the car was FIAT TALENTO which is the largest 9seater in its class in Europe. We feel it is very unfair to get only 1star for this tour as it was originally your mistake and everything else including driver, our great local tour guide in Budapest, sightseeing was great. We wish you all the best and please check your future bookings for avoiding such mistakes.

Charles M, Jan 2017
Since we had a very short time in Budapest, the tour guide was good but restrained for time. He took us to all the important sights and we were quite satisfied with what we got to see, given the time restraint. The tour guide Gabriel was quite informative and witty.
Sadly disappointing
Dennis_P, Jul 2018
We have booked many trips with Viator and loved the experience. Our day trip to Budapest was a great car trip with a wonderful driver, Peter. However, the walking tour guide had been hired by the original tour guide and was inexperienced plus was only fair in his English. He was a very nice person just not what we expected as this was our most expensive tour of the 5 we booked. Very disappointing.
Response from Host, Nov 2019
We are very sorry to hear that you were dissapointed and we are quite surprised as we only use certified tour guides and experienced drivers, this tour is one of our best selling tours and also has great reviews

Had a great trip! The driver was good and took as there and back safely and in time. A special word for our guide - Gregory - was fantastic. Will recommend him anytime!
