About
Budapest is situated on the banks of the Danube. The river splits the city into two halves: Pest, which is completely flat, and Buda, which is hilly. Main sights in Pest: Central Market Hall, National Museum, Great Synagogue, Geological Institute, City Park (Széchenyi Thermal Bath), Heroes' Square, Andrássy Avenue, State Opera House, St. Stephen's Basilica, Parliament Main sights in Buda: Castle District (included former Royal Palace, Matthias Church, Fishermen's Bastion), Gellért Hill (Statue of Freedom), Gellért Thermal Hotel and Spa Between the two sides we have the beautiful and impressive Chain Bridge, Elisabeth Bridge and Liberty Bridge. On a 4 hour tour you can get a general overview about our wonderful capital. A full day tour (7 hours) is more detailed and you'll have longer time to explore all of the sights.

A GREAT Value!!!
Sep. 2021
We recently took a 16-day trip throughout Europe and one of our more memorable days was the time we spent with Zoltan Horvath. He was FANTASTIC!

Zoltan gave us a private CUSTOM TOUR of Budapest. We have used private tours before and find them much more informative and personable; and this was definitely our experience with Zoltan. From the first stop (the Market), to the Underground, McDonalds, the Parliament, the Church, the Pest side with river views and the Bakery; he was outstanding.

His knowledge and his Hungarian heritage brought a unique experience to our visit. We look forward to booking Zoltan on our next trip.

CUSTOM TAILORED TOUR
Aug. 2021 • Family
This was by far the BEST TOUR we have ever taken! We opted for a PRIVATE TOUR for myself, my hubby and my daughter. This is definitely the way to go. You are not pigeon holed into toddling along with a big group and you’re not at the discretion of the group dictates. We started our tour with Zoltán in the old city of Budapest. He is very open, friendly and full of knowledge. He invites you to feel free to ask questions at any time, which we certainly did. He is a Hungarian native and you can tell he has a lot of pride in his country. I enjoyed his sense of humor and easy laid back manner. He was very adaptable to ice cream, restroom and water breaks and at several points we were able to direct our areas of interest based on our level of tiredness, need for shade from the elements or hunger. Another bonus: he is a fabulous photographer so we were able to capture all of us in the photos (better viewpoints than a selfie) and he also suggested a few points that would make for excellent photos. I believe one of them will be our holiday card this year. Areas we explored: Castle District, Fisherman’s Bastion, Matthias Church (the church is beautiful and a must see, I would recommend taking the 200 steps to the top to see all the bells and mechanisms and the view from the top if phenomenal), previous Royal Palace (which is under renovation) and we took the funicular from there to a public train ride to the Gellert Spa and the Church built into the Cave (which currently houses several priests). We plan to return to Budapest in the future and would like to take a Zoltán tour of the Pest side of the Danube next time or maybe even a day trek to explore the Hungarian countryside. If you’re looking for a TAILOR MADE tour to suit your needs, this is the perfect option - highly recommend!

Christmas and New Year's visit with a GREAT guide!
Dec. 2019
Christmas Week 2019 my wife and two adult sons flew into Budapest from New York. We are part Hungarian so this was a very special trip long overdue. This was not our first trip to Europe and I learned that the best way to really see and appreciate a destination is to find a good personal guide. Commercial tour operators cater to big groups and my experience is that often the guides hired by the tour operators work off of a script. If you ask a question not related to the script you get bs responses. Zoltan was fantastic and exactly what I wanted.
After a quick email exchange while we were going through customs we met Zoltan. He was instantly welcoming and greeted us as if we were old friends. On the way from the airport he told us what we were looking at, what we could expect to see and what we must see while visiting there for the week. he shared some family stories, asked about our family and told us things to do in the days before our scheduled guide date. We spent a day in the city and then went to Vienna for two nights and returned in time for New Years Eve back in Budapest. Zoltan met us again the morning of 2 January and took us throughout Pest before going to Buda across the river. It seemed that he knew something about every building and statue we passed and there was not a question that he could not answer. He recommended several fine restaurants for dinner that were fantastic out of the way places. We stopped at least 10-12 times on our tour and we spent as much time as we wanted at each attraction.
While our trip this time centered on Buda and Pest he suggested several places to visit on our next trip which are just outside the city that we will be doing as soon as this pandemic is over. He also brought us back to the airport the day that we left.
Zoltan was so nice that we have stayed in touch in the subsequent months via WhatsApp.
I cannot recommend his services enough. His fees were more than reasonable. If you are looking for a nice, safe, polite gentleman to escort you around a beautiful city that he truly loves, please do yourself a favor and hire this man and Rinett Guide Tours.

Thanks Zoltan!
Nov. 2019
My parents, and another couple they traveled with, recommended Zoltan to us. My husband and I had only one day in Budapest so we were quick to work with Zoltan to book a tour on their recommendation. Zoltan was prompt to respond to my requests and helpful with arranging everything we requested. He picked us up on time at our hotel and had the day planned. He even recommended we make a stop for the parliament tour, whichever was outside of the plan, but an exceptional stop. Zoltan was knowledgeable and helpful and a wonderful guide to spend the day with exploring the city. He made our only day in Budapest full and memorable.

Amazing private tour by fantastic guide
Nov. 2019
The 6 in our group HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company. This was the highlight of our trip on the Danube River. We ended in Budapest and Zoltan picked us up at the boat, took our baggage to hotel and started our city tour.
That was already above and beyond! But then he booked our evening cruise to see the lights; ordered our taxi for the trip to to airport the following morning and recommended an authentic Hungarian restaurant!
Zoltan had communicated well in advance asking us what we wanted to see and as we spent time with him, he modified the sights we saw and the routes he took to accommodate our interests.
He is very knowledgeable about Hungarian history and a great story teller.
Best ever!!!!!

Tour of Budapest
Aug. 2019
We had a private half day tour a Budapest. It was exceptional, Zoltan took the 6 of us around all the main tourist sites plus more. He was superb with his knowledge, history and humour. He tailored the tour to our individual needs , coffee and toilet stops etc. I cannot thank him enough it was fantastic. Without a doubt I would recommend this tour to individuals and groups it was superb value for money.

Perfect family trip
My family traveled in Hungary for just under a week, and Zoltan was the best guide we could have asked for! Our group consisted of my in-laws, my husband, me, and our two kids (3 and 1 yo). Zoltan ensured we had car seats for the kiddos, and he was very flexible in accommodating their schedules. Zoltan had thorough historical knowledge, and I also really enjoyed learning about the modern Hungarian culture from him. He took us around Budapest, Danube Bend, and the western countryside for ancestry trace. Prior to the trip, he did an incredible amount of ancestry research for my father-in-law to find all the right places to visit. He called town halls ahead of time to allow us to get birth records. He really went above and beyond, which made this family trip so special. Zoltan provided such thoughtful and personalized service. I cannot recommend him enough!
