What people are saying about Budapest

Attila, our guide was awesome! He took time for us, he was absolutely friendly and patient, he told and showed us so many things, he had an absolutely sunny mood and he is definately doing his job with heart and soul! We enjoyed the tour so much and it was definatrly better than expected!

We all loved the SUP tour on the Danube.. really beyond expectations!! It was a special experience to paddle right through beautiful Budapest past the parliament building. the instructor was friendly and helpful.. as far as we are concerned, the tour is definitely recommended.

It was really fun, the guidors always made sure the weren't any people left behind alone for those that were struggling and they took pictures of us which was great since our phones were on the waterproof bags.

It was fun to the extent that initially I just booked for the tour around Buda but then I decided to pay another 10€ to continue going on the tour around Pest.

We were so lucky that it was just our family and our guide. Nobody else was booked in so we got a private tour.
