Excellent informative tour- guide spoke brilliant English and gave a very interesting account of life during communist Hungary. Gave lots of tips and places "not to be missed" if only staying for a short trip. Would definitely recommend this tour great way to see both Buda and Pest

The walking tour was great! Our guide was really funny and so full of personality. She seemed to know everything about the city and was very animated. The walking tour was the best part of my time in Budapest, because without the random little facts the guide told me, nothing would've had as much meaning.

Loved this walk today. Zoltan was our tour guide and he was funny and entertaining, even despite the rain. I learned a lot about Budapest and the walk went really quickly and didn't feel like 2.5 hours. It's great if you are traveling solo as you meet other people - I ended up spending the whole day with someone I... More

My wife and I did three of the city walks over two days (General, Jewish and Communism) with three different, excellent and extremely well informed tour guides. I have done a number of similar type tours in other cities and the Free Walking tours of Budapest tours were first class. The guides gave us a comprehensive detailed insight into the... More

I really enjoyed this free walking tour (tips aren't forced but most people gave something). It was very informative and a good orientation of the city. Also the guide brought us to a local food hall for local cuisine after the tour. She was very friendly and happy to answer any questions. Highly recommend it.

I've been on a few free walking tours around Europe so perhaps I had high expectations, but I found this quite disappointing. Of course it's good that it's technically "free" but it was a bit awkward trying to decide what to tip when we didn't really enjoy the tour. The guide herself was enthusiastic and friendly, but the information she... More

This tour is very well organised and planned. Our tour guide Zoktan was very good, striking a healthy balance of historical facts, humorous tales and helpful tips along the way. Although you cover quite a bit of distance in the 2.5+ hrs it doesn't seem too long. All in all a great walking tour and well worth the time.

My sister and I were a part of the tour group of Andreas (Andrew) who was an amusing and informative tour guide. He taught us about the city of Budapest, the local food and even (tried to) teach us some of the Hungarian language! He was able to answer any questions which he was asked and even knew a lot...

This was not only a great history lesson but also an introduction to Jewish life past and present. Our guide was light hearted and entertaining while not glossing over past horrors. A very informative and enjoyable experience
