    Rashad was the best tour guide I have had in Europe. His knowledge of the city was detailed and beyond anything I would have expected. He modified the tour according to what we wanted to focus on, he paid special attention to the things we were interested in, and explained those in more detail, when we wanted. He was very attentive to our needs and wants for the tour, and in making it a great day for us. His english was perfect, he was very friendly and made my mother and I feel very comfortable experiencing a new city, from the best local perspective that Rashad was able to provide. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience the best of Budapest in one day, particularly those with an interest in the historical and cultural background.

    This tour was the best choice we could have made visiting Budapest. Rashadour guide filled our day with great history and backgrounds to all the sites we walked and subway to. Rashad got in contact with me as soon as I booked the tour. He asked for what and where we wanted to go. The tour was supposed to be 8 hours but at the 8 hour point we still had the chain bridge and Palace to get to. Rashad wanted us to get all the requested sights in and ended up staying with us for almost 10 hours. He even included the Jewish Quarter and the three synagogues. Rashad had his tour planned in such a way that the history and background come into context in the end. His knowledge exceeded excellence and Rashad really wanted us to know how it feels to live in his country that he is so proud of. We had one day to spend in Budapest before the start of our river cruise. You need to wear comfortable shoes but even with them our feet hurt in the end. I strongly recommend Rashad for an all inclusive sight into the history and culture of Budapest. Rashad is the most knowledgeable, caring and ethical tour guide we have ever had. Thank You Rashad.

    Briliant day out! Rashad was my guide and we had a fully packed day. It was a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes but we saw all the main sights in Budapest. Rashad was great giving you the history and background to Hungary so that each building and sight you saw had context. His knowledge was impressive and he was really passionate and proud of his history and culture. Fantastic day out allowing you to get your bearings on the city and decide where to explore in depth on your remaining vacation days
