I did both the free tour and the communism tour. Bridget(?) was very good at explaining all the sights and providing us with tips about Budapest. The communism tour was equally good Andrea(?) was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour and made everyone feel welcome. Overall very knowledgeable and outgoing guides who spoke excellent English or "Hunglish"... More

My wife (Karen) and I did the Budapest walk last Saturday morning (15th). It gave us a great insite in to some of the prominent land marks of the city, with a brief history and stories behind them. I would recommend anyone who visits Budapest to do one of these tours, young or old. You learn so much as your... More

The passion with which she talked about her country's history. She used her own experience and even ethnical origins to made the city comprehensible for all of us throughout the General Tour. She was very kind and relaxed, which made this walk a gentle stroll around the city's main sights. At first there was a very interesting historical introduction that... More

Hats off to the young gals who run these tours! We did the general tour and learned a lot about Budapest. The pace was good, our guide spoke excellent English and she was willing to share lots of inside information about sites, restaurants, favourite foods, and historical facts. She tried to connect with each of us and make this experience... More

I quite enjoyed the tour, I think it is really helpful to orientate yourself in the city but not much history, I think there is a lot of potential in the city to get more out of it. I recommend it to start on the city.

Dear CarlosWoodward, we agree with you a hundred per cent: our tour is a welcome to Budapest. We also believe that there is a lot of potiential in telling the history of Budapest, and that’s why we created the Communism and the Jewish District Walks. Sorry they skipped your kind attention.

I did both the ruin bar and the walking tour with the group and both were great experiences. The bar tour was probably geared towards a younger crowd, but it was a lot of fun and a safe way to experience the bar scene. The walking tour was very comprehensive and interesting. Would recommend both.

I did two tours with these guys and really enjoyed them both. I did the city tour with Endre and the communist tour with Agy. I have an annoying habit of being quite critical when I go on tours but these two were great. Both very different guides but both passionate, knowledgeable, open to questions and entertaining.
