Veronika was amazing! This was the second tour we took with Veronika (she also gave us a tour of Communist Budapest), and on both occasions she was extremely knowledgable, kind and well informed . She shared tremendous insight and knowledge about Budapest's history, was very...More
Our guide, Andras, is totally knowledgeable in the history of Communism and how it has played out in Hungary. We visited areas where we wouldn’t think to go to. He distinguished the various “warring” factions and their effect on Hungary. And he was very patient...More
During this trip to Europe we took two tours with Insight Cities. One was the 'Art Nouveau and Cubism architecture' tour in Prague and the the other was 'Downtown Pest: The New Imperial Capital 1867 - 1914' tour in Budapest.
For both tours, both of...More

We took several walking tours, including one of Art Nouveau and one of Jewish Budapest. Both were led by guides of truly outstanding backgrounds, and both tours were marvelously interesting. We are history buffs, and both tours helped us to understand the complicated backgrounds of...More
Would highly recommend Andras as a guide, very knowledgeable about history and events leading up to the present day. As a native of Budapest, his insights were fascinating. We got a great introduction to the city and the most important tourist sights.
We did the Downtown Pest tour with Andras a few days ago. Like our other two Insight Cities tours in Prague, this one was fantastic. Andras didn't just give us an historical prospective of Pest, he discussed the current political situation which is informed and...More

Thanks so much for the inquiry and sorry for the delay on this end. We missed the question. That's a wonderful combined day of culinary and history touring for 7 hours and is priced at $150 person including both the history and culinary parts of the day and several tastings at the Central Market, including a variety of local cheeses, cured meats, and pickled vegetables. Afterwards there will be a shared meal of traditional dishes, a tasting of several cakes, and one to two more tastings (depending on the day). Drinks which will be tasted include Unicum and three nice Hungarian wines. Come hungry! You can find even more detail on our website. We'd love to tour you in Budapest.
