Night time fun

Joe was a great guide and made this a fun and interesting tour. Didn’t know what to expect and just went for the fun “theme” of the tour. Turned out to be a great decision and a perfect way to see the Castle District lit up at night. Great stories every few minutes and a lot of chuckles. Glad we signed up!

It was a wonderful tour. Joe was a superb guide and very informative. He has a great knowledge about the background. Right on time and no rush about the time frame. At the end he spend a good time chatting about relevant topics and extra stories with individuals. We highly recommend this trip if you are visiting Budapest and into Dracula history.

Our narrator Zsigmond Balazs took us on a dark & mysterious wander around the beautiful Buda Castle & Fisherman's Bastian. The stories were told in an engaging & dramatic way. We thoroughly enjoyed this immersive experience & learned a lot about the history of Budapest and some of mysterious characters of times gone by. Our teenagers enjoyed themselves!

Great story telling however guide needed a microphone as it was hard to hear all the time as we were a large group and he moved around while talking. Needs to be mindful that not all the group will be a fast as him. He would just stride in front leaving some of the group struggling to keep up. There were lots of steps and uneven ground.
