    The tour covered all points of interest with the guide being a good historian. However the tour ended with an unsatisfactory boat trip where we were abandoned by the guide with no information as to how to return to the hotel. There were no seats on the boat which ended the tour on a sour note.

    Very disapointed!!!! Cab driver dropped us off at the wrong location and we stood for half an hour. Finally cat ahold of company and had to walk 2 blocks to find driver.
    Was rushed through the tour driver complained about rush hour traffic. Was a 2 hour tour instead of 3 hours.
    Was dropped off for the canal ride with voucher from driver.....after standing in line for 1/2 hr. We were told we had to go across street to get tickets redeemed and missed the ride. Had to go the next morning.
    Would not recommend this tour. Felt it was a waste of money and time.

    The tour was not at all what was described in the booking. The tour guide had no information regarding the optional Danube River Cruise which we paid for. Poorly executed tour itself and very disappointed overall. Once we figured out the River Cruise portion this was the only positive aspect of the whole day. I would not recommend.

    4 hour tour took us all around the city. Guide was knowledgeable and good. I was only disappointed that we seemed to see several things only from the outside Mathias Church, St. Stephen's Church etc. Should have had a few more stops to get down and see.

    There were about 7 of us in the group, a small enough group which was nice. We all wanted the English tour to understand the history better. However, it was difficult understanding the tourist guide. The bus got there late and we were dropped off before the 4 hours were up. At any rate, I finished the tour not really getting a better understanding about Budapest and her history. Big disappointment.

    Great tour! Thanks to our guide Levaijozsef. I reccomend it to everyone willing to see the basic attractions in Budapest in one tour.

    The walking tour was great and gives you a very good overview of the scenic spots in Budapest. The optional Danube River cruise was also fantastic. I was booked with the Legenda Cruise and I opted for the 5:30pm cruise which was really good as the boat during this time was not crowded. You have enough room to walk around the boat during the cruise. The optional stop at the Margaret Island was also a welcomed surprise. Highly recommended.

    The city tour was OK, covering most of the main tourist sites. It didn't include stops at the Parliament or St Stephen's Church, which was disappointing. The guide tended to ramble on a bit. Danube cruise was enjoyable.
