Did the original afternoon walking tour with Orshe. We expected to hear a lot of history and see the best what the city has to offer. We were so excited to visit Budapest. But, unfortunately, we were left with quite a negative impression about Hungary. The tour consentrated too much on negative things. Would recommend to look for other tour... More

The general 3-hr walking tour covered both Buda and Pest, and highlighted all the top attractions. This tour provided a great layout of the tourist/historic district along the river which was great for my subsequent solo exploration. Afterward (not sure if this happens every time), our guide took us to a hidden cafeteria for some truly authentic local food (I... More

It was very informative and fun at the same time. I am recommending to use it at the beginning of your trip, so you get a good overview of the city.

This was a very good tour. You just show up at Vorosmarty Ter at 10:30 . There were over 100 people but they split us into 4 groups. Our guide,Andy was informative and fun. We ended up at Buda Castle Hill.

We did three tours with them, the general walking tour, the communist walk and the pub tour, all three of them were brilliant. Each of the tour length is about 3 hrs each. Each of the guides were locals and we got a taste of every day life of these locals. Each of the guides made the tours interactive and... More

Budapest walking tour was really great! I learned a lot from city's history but when our guide talked about history she used too many dates so it was really hard to memorize them. Also I am used to laugh bit more on those free walking tours. But all together the tour was really interesting and we saw a lot of... More

We did three walking tours during our stay. They where all very informative and gave certainly the best view of the subject for that day. The guides are over all very well motivated and enthusiastic about their theme and topic.They are bubbling with high spirits and it is catching all who join the tour. Highly recommendable.
