Excellent tour with Victoria
, Aug 2021
Victoria was a fantastic guide. She really gave an excellent sense of the struggle of Hungary as a nation. She kept us moving through the city and we saw a lot of smaller details as well as the main highlights. One of the best city tours I have been on.

Good tour

I was running a bit late but the tour office was able to contact the guide, Christian, who was nice enough to come back for me. He had a lot of good knowledge about the history of the city and let the group set its own pace. We had time to stop and grab a mulled wine to nurse along the journey. I took off a star just because sometimes he was a bit too quiet and hard to hear and it would have been better to spend a bit less time at some of the places and a bit more time at the castle district, but that's just my personal preference. Overall, it was a great tour, especially for such a low price.

Victoria was very helpful to us in our tour of Budapest. She quickly recognized that we had seen many of the main attractions of the city, and on the spot improvised a different tour to show us sights that we had not as yet seen. She was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. We are very happy that we took the tour with her!
