Highly Recommend this tour!
, Jul 2022
Our guides was terrific. She was so knowledgeable. Our first stop was Hero's square and they had a Police demonstration going on at the time that we got to watch. We went to the most beautiful parts of the Buda and Pest side. We even got to see a couple of hidden gems that weren't on our tour that our guide recommended us to see. The local restaurant we went to had great food. The cruise on the river was very enjoyable and so was Margaret's island. My family and I would recommend this trip and would come back and do this one again. It was a great experience.
Great Experience

Great tour and guide!

Nora was our guide and she was lovely! Our family had an amazing time. She was so knowledgeable about all of the sites in the history of Budapest. She had a great sense of humor! There was plenty of time to explore the sites and take great photos! I would highly recommend this tour and ask for Nora to guide you!

Great guide, great sites, great food!
, Jul 2022
Nora was an excellent and informative guide. We got to see all of the main attractions as well as some additional hidden gems that we would have never found on our own. It was the perfect tour to experience as much of Budapest as possible in one short day.
Great private tour

Our guide. Marta was very nice and knowledgeable. On time pickup at our hotel. Even had extra umbrellas when it started to rain. Lunch was at a lovely restaurant The Golden Deer. Food was delicious. Boat ride was great with English speaking audio. I personally could ha e passed on walking around Margaret Island, but my friend enjoyed it.

A Tour of Budapest
, Nov 2021
We got to see parts of the city, both the Buda and Pest sides, by a nice private vehicle that the tour buses can't get to and the weather cooperated. Our local guide Nora was knowledgeable and adjusted the schedule for sites we had previously seen. Lunch in a local restaurant with Hungarian food was part of the experience as was the boat ride on the Danube. Overall, we would recommend this tour.

A wonderful time!
, Jul 2021
The guide was punctual, coming to the hotel and stayed on schedule perfectly. She was kind, and friendly with us. She spoke English very clearly, and is knowledgable about absolutely everything we had questions about. In addition, the company is very easy to contact and is accommodating to reasonable requests We both sincerely recommend this tour group

Nora was an excellent guide. She spent a lot of the time showing us the main attractions. The only problem that we had was with the cruise on the river because the boat broke and we were not available to visit the margarita island. Also, the lunch was not that I expected. It was very normal

I would like to thank you for your review and we are looking forward to the opportunity to welcome you again during your next visit to Budapest. Regarding the lunch is variable on the spot according to your wishes, we provide the typically Hungarian tastes. Regards, Susanna
Fantastic Way To See Budapest

Susan our guide was exceptional and her knowledgeable about the city was fascinating to listen to. She covered a lot of ground while keeping us entertained the whole time and it was a pleasure to spend the day with her.

Great tour with an amazing guide/driver Steve. Knowledgeable in history and culture, fluent in quite a few languages English and Russian including, safe driver, flexible to adjust to your wishes/pace. We highly recommend this tour with this particular guide.
First off I would like to say that...
, Aug 2016
First off I would like to say that our tour guide Mike seemed very knowledgeable about all the sights that we saw and seemed pleasant enough. On the downside, he arrived late in a vehicle that it became apparent he was not very proficient at driving. On numerous occasions we were subjected to near whiplash starts and stops as he was not well experienced with a manual transmission and how to use a clutch. Numerous times the car died and head to be re-started due to his fact. In addition, we spent a lot of time just looking for a parking space. Our first excursion out of the vehicle we spent about 20 minutes standing around waiting for Mike to find parking and get to us where he had dropped us off. Mind you, we were dropped off no where near any of the sights we were supposed to visit. We could have at least better used that time to take photos in his absence. As for the tour itself, most of it was nothing more than a drive by tour, not really stopping long enough for even a photo. The worst part is that the tour was supposed to include a visit to the Citadel, St. Stephens Basilica interior visit included and the Parliament building. None of which were visited much less even driven by by our guide. We did manage to see the Parliament building but only from the river cruise that was included but about a mile away from the building itself. Finally, despite the tour including a return to the hotel, we were instructed by Mike that we could walk from the pier where the tour boat docked since it wasn't very far. Actually it was over a mile walk in 100 plus degree temps without any shade to at least get under. All it all, a pretty disappointing trip and not much of what was promised was actually delivered. Avoid this one at all costs.

Great experience, very good guide. Saw all the highlights - then we chose what to go back to. Only negative was the lunch - traditional restaurant but no choices and it wasn't very nice. Def worth the trip though!
