A magical tour and Miklos personalized our experience.

Miklos was our guide. He brought his historical knowledge and excellent skills in engaging us in the tour. We would not easily have found some of the gems we were shown nor would we have appreciated the details in the same way without Miklos stories. I highly recommend the various cultural experiences he offers. Even in a heat wave! Thank you.

Nice tour and nice guide, unfortunately no real focus on Art Nouveau.

I learned more in these 3 hours than I did in many previous visits.

Miklos is so knowledgable about all aspects of Hungarian and world history. As a teacher, he knows how to expertly stimulate your mind and see beyond just the facades of the buildings.
