The city of Budapest sparkles at night and this evening tour is the perfect way to experience it. Explore the streets first with your local guide, who passes on stories of illustrious Hungarians and the surrounding architecture. Hear about where the first Hungarians came from, and the facts behind the famous Attila the Hun. As you walk through the city and admire the buildings illuminated with light, you have the chance to ask questions and take photos of the glowing Buda Castle District and the Danube Promenade.

Then, if you've chosen the cruise option, give your legs a rest and climb aboard an evening cruise on the Danube. Enjoy a free welcome drink and the chance to see the top attractions from the water. Glide past the impressive Parliament building, under the Chain Bridge and much more. Commentary is also provided if you’re interested in learning more about the scenery you pass along the way.

The river cruise is one of the most stunning scenes of a city that you can experience. The narration on the boat could have been better synched, but overall it was worth the money!

Christie was a wonderful tour guide and host of her city. She listened to what I'd already seen and what my interests were to tailor the experience to what would be most captivating to me. She was clearly knowledgeable about the sites and stories behind them as well as tips for what to do/see on my own. Everything was made easy for the boat cruise on the Danube which offered audio tours in many languages. Christie's warmth and professionalism made me feel happy with my choice to use this company. It's well worth the price for this tour.

Great guide on this tour, a language student who lived in the city. She gave us really great information and helped us understand the meanings of many monuments including communist, WWII and Cold War symbolism. I'm making it sound boring but it was really interesting. She was awesome and their office is clean, welcoming, has chairs, drinks and clean bathrooms. I would have loved to have her with me everyday I was there. She took us right to the boat and helped get the tickets. My 4 star rating reflects the boat. It had glass on both sides and pictures don't turn out so great and it was kind of weird so I wish I knew that before hand. It was lightly raining but I still went up top with my umbrella to the somewhat narrow seating. It was cold and raining but I still liked it better than the fish tank feeling below.

A lot of fast paced walking. I am athletic but thought it would be more of a stroll, so didn't dress appropriately. Wear gym clothes and tennies. Sad history but loved learning about it. Was a long line for the boat which was covered and VERY crowded, so opted to just go back to the hotel.

Great Tour, too bad it was raining, but it wasn't too bad. Tour leader, Peter, was a trooper not missing a beat and was good a presenting the things we saw. Went to some offbeat areas, areas we wouldn't have seen during our short stay in Budapest.
