This was fantastic and the best option as an intro to the area and history, great that it is free, people should tip generously though to keep them going. Good pace and good route to the main intro tour also.

We went on a tour with Norbert on February 22nd and it was excellent! Norbert was lovely and very informative. It was great to learn some of the history of both Buda and Pest. We wish we had had the time to do all of the tours offered, the ruins bar tour especially sounded great.

Definite recommendation- a good way to start your trip to Budapest. Sad to see some people not giving the guides a tip when the tours are free!! Jewish afternoon trip ended in a ruin bar - cheers!

Angie was our brilliant tour guide who was informative and funny. The 3 hour guided tour flew by and even the climb up to the castle was OK. We learned lots about Budapest (including the correct pronunciation) and visited parts we might not otherwise have seen. Angie even marked some really good restaurants on our map which was helpful. Highly... More

The woman also made it light hearted and fun too! The two hours flew by and at the end she was happy to give us some really useful info about good ruin... More

So we did this tour on our first day and found it to be a great introduction to Budapest. Dora the guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth doing if like us you have not done a huge amount of research on places to see.
