We loved this tour as it was packed with so much information we would never have had an opportunity to learn elsewhere. Christian gave us a window into another world which we would have missed had we not taken this tour.

I took the alternative walking tour in Budapest in September 2017 and thought it was worth while. The guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic; gave me a perspective on life in Budapest from a Hungarian point of view. I would recommend this tour.
