  • Enjoyed the trip overall with our wonderful guide. we got to get off and explore a couple of spots on the Buda side. On the Pest side it was really a drive through with a stop at the parliament building to join the guided parliament tour.
    It would have be good if the trip let us get off the bus to take pictures at Heroes square and let us go into Mathias church even if means adding another hour to the tour. We had to go back just to both these places on our own.

  • This was a great overview of Buda and Pest, plus the parliament. So glad we added the parliament to the overview of the city. our guide was good. Wish we had more time to see the memorial to the student revolt that is not far from the Hero square. We only had 15 min. at hero's square and could not run over to see that memorial. Our guide did not inform us about the memorial, we read about it on line.

  • I have been on some tours before and wished I had booked a walking tour would have found out more history. We were hearded from one bus to another settled then changed again, ended up with Spanish travellers so the whole tour was in Spanish and English so felt we missed some information. The tour guide did his best but felt he needed to be mentioning places of interest before we got there rather than on the left is...then it was gone by the time you looked especially if he was in Spanish mode first. Some of the places advertised in the tour we did not see such as passing the zoo or thermal baths. We did not stop at Heros Square just drove past, so had to visit the following day. Had about 15 minutes free time at the monument on the hill and 10 minutes at the castle. Would not book this again disappointed.

  • Great way to get the most information and sightseeing in Prague! . Great way to see more of Prague than just the Downtown area. Then the walking half of the tour starts at the Prague Castle. The castle itself and the views from the castle are amazing! You walk down into Prague and past many souvenir shops. You do get a stop at the Lennon Wall and walk across The Charles Bridge. The last stop is the Clock. Great Tour and great value!

  • it was the worst tour ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on August 27 2017

  • The guide was awesome, and the hotel transfer was very nice. We saw Hero Square, took in an incredible view of Budapest, and enjoyed the Parliament tour. However, we did not make it to the Castle District during the tour. Given the time, I think we would have been really rushed if we had tried to go. If there is a longer tour, maybe opt for that one. I wouldn't really recommend this one.

  • Really well organized tour. I was picked up by a taxi from the hotel to the meeting point to meet with 20-25 other guests. We had a nice modern ACed tour bus to take us to the major sights. It is a good intro tour that you should book on your first or second day in Budapest. You can always go back to the sights to spend more time. They don't spend a lot of time in each spot, but give you a good enough overview of it. Definitely book the parliament tour. The building looks fantastic from outside but even more beautiful inside. The tour guide is fluent in English and Spanish and gave the tour in both languages. However she was a bit reluctant to additional questions and answers.

  • Very good toor, guide was excellent.

  • This tour was a Grayline tour. We went to the meeting point by taxi because they did not do a hotel pick up. Look for a Kiosk not an office. We drove around for 1.5 hours while the tour guide said things like this is big street, that is a square, and look at the river. At the first stop, she started to give historical facts about the Nazi and Communist occupation that were inaccurate and untrue. She said things about the Holocaust that were proven to be untrue. When confronted she became testy at best. The 45 minute tour of the Parliament was great! There may be a better way to see Budapest than by a big bus. Look for it.

  • Not a happy camper. Was a cold and rainy day April 18, 2017. We were picked at hotel and taken to a central point to be placed on our tour. The guide changed to tour some because of the rain. No problem. When taking us to the various sites she would led us there then leave. Or not stay with us to get out of the rain. On the way to the last stop we were informed we would not be pickup as the tour was over for the others. We all had to make our way back to our hotels on our own. The last stop Was the parliament building. We were handed off to the parliament tour and they left. Nobody from to tour company or the parliament staff knew where a taxi stand was. So we ended walking in the rain and cold to the hotel until we found a cab. No not use this company period. Unusually cold spring. Not there fault, it's how they handled it.
