Our guide was lively and interesting and gave us a reasonable overview of some of the main sights in Budapest though those that had to do with the Nazi period and the war, were pretty much glossed over or not mentioned at all.

We did the tour with Bianca who was absolutely adorable! She is passionate, knowledgeable, an expert on basically everything. She led the whole tour with a smile, and talked really good English. Thank you for being part of the colourful rainbow that is Budapest!

We did the alternative walking tour with Bianca and really liked it. She was a very nice and warm person and was able to answer all of our questions. The tour was really informative and great. Would recommend the tour with her :-)

Our tour guide Balazs was just perfect: knowledgeable but not overwhelming; he kept the pace comfortable and covered all important sights without rush; and added his own family's personal experiences to help better understand recent history of Hungarian people. Definitely 5 stars! Highly recommended.

You have this tour twice daily at 11:00 or at 14:00. It covers the most important things or "the must see while in Budapest" things. It takes around 2, 2.5 hours and it's really worth going in my opinion. The meeting point... More
