      One of the best walking tours I have ever done. Regina our guide was so knowledgeable and so lovely sharing so much of the history of her much loved city. I can not recommend this tour highly enough. The small group is perfect. We all got to know one another. I was on my own and thoroughly enjoyed it. We started with coffee in a lovely Hungarian coffee shop/restaurant where Regina told us the history of Hungary. The Buda Castle tour with historian Regina was the highlight of my trip to Budapest.

      A great tour, definitely worth doing!

      Meeting Andris was really easy and he knew he we were straight away. There were 4 of us in my tour which was lovely as we got to hear everything and have great conversations! The tour itself was well worth the money, without it, we wouldn't know half the information behind what we saw. The stories were factual, entertaining and many of them very funny. Andris was great and answered all questions we had. I'd recommend this tour.
