Our tour guide Naomi, provided a interesting and informative tour of our first visit to the beautiful Budapest. It was a wonderful welcome to the city and its culture. All our questions were fully answered, the whole experience was relaxed and not at all hurried, I never felt pressured to move on to the next point before being ready to do so. Thank you to our expert guide who worked so hard to make our trip a pleasure. Very highly recommended, and great value for money.

We really enjoyed our tour of Budapest. Our guide good time to walk us along the river, explaining both Buda and Pest as well as many of the differences. We walked into a beautiful hotel, which used to be a beautiful shopping area and had a simply exquisite ceiling. She explained a great deal about what life was like when she was younger, and under communist rule.

Absolutely brilliant. What a nice warm lovely lady showed us round . Totally full of knowledge and put us at ease straight away. There was only my wife and I but she was great. Thank you from Nick and Kerry in the UK

Very knowledgeable guide, that knew so much about the history of Hungary and Budapest which was fascinating. Goes into great detail so tour does last longer. About 2.5 hours.
