  • This was a really fun tour. Our guide was super knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour as it covers a lot of territory in a short period of time.

  • Our experience of this was great. Our 25 year old guide was a mine of information. We wore ponchos as we had 4 1/2 hours of snow and rain but it did not dull the experience. Do this at the start of your holiday as it will come in useful when travelling yourselves to all the areas. We could ask our guide about any information we needed and he knew the answer. Very enjoyable and well worth the money.

  • This was an amazing tour I would highly recommend, in fact I have to friends who are visiting Budapest in March. I think our guides name was George and he was very engaging and knowledgeable and helped us make the most of our relatively short stay in this amazing city. Do the walking tour first as you arrive in Budapest and then you have a good idea of where you need to return to or other places that the guide recommends.

  • Traveling with a friend we found this tour through Viator Company Name: Absolute Tours and it was definitely our favorite part of our weekend. We did the tour on a Sunday at the end of January. There were only 4 people total on the tour. The guide, Bálint was absolutely perfect he spoke great English and mixed in history, current events, and humor into each location we visited. You could feel the passion he has for Hungary. The pace of the tour was perfect a mixture of walking, train riding, and sitting. 3.5 hour walking tour may seem like a lot but it wasnt walking straight the entire time, definitely time to enjoy the sites and stop and listen to Bálint tell you about the history. We stopped at one point at a pastry shop for strudels which were out of this world I went with Bálints recommendation Poppy Seed and Cheese and Cherry superb!.

  • Very fun day around the city!
