“Intelligent and passionate guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

My wife and I took part in the September 25th morning walk
and loved it so much that we went the following day on
the afternoon Jewish walk.
We found both Zoltan and Emma to be engaging and funny
and funny is not so easy when English is not your first language.
Zoltan recommended a restaurant where the local government employees
frequent and we found it to be both good value and very tasty.
As well,he sat at our table and it was pleasant to share a meal
with a Budapestonian? or is that a Budapestite ?

Emma took took a us to a "ruin" bar as part of the Jewish tour
and we went there later that evening and it was wonderful
way to spend our last evening in Budapest.
If you have a few hours to spare,these tours are really a great way
to find out about the city's history.

Dear Pacific_Fanatic,

Thank you for your enthusiastic and descriptive review of Zoltán’s General Walk and Emma’s Jewish District Walk. We also appreciate the great pictures you took and uploaded to TripAdvisor. So there’s only the Communism Walk left for you to take upon your next visit.

With kind regards,

“The best way to get an orientation of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Roll up in the square for the start and enjoy a couple of hours exploring the city with a local who informs and entertains. Great way to see the city and touch the streets where you would not normally perhaps wander, ok its a couple of hours walking but it not hard and rewards are plenty. If you enjoy do tip the guide its their only income, and what's not to enjoy.

Dear Ariane S,

We appreciate your passionate and cheerful review of our tour. There are about 10 Hungarian ladies working for us, so I’ll tell all of them that you liked it :)

We hope to see you again on the other two tours.

“Excellent tour - and 'free'!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

One of the best ways of getting to know the city!
Zoltan was a great guide - really informative and kept the (large) group together well which is not easy. Lots of walking, but the time whizzed by. Very useful tips too and he was happy to give individual advice and suggest somewhere cheap for lunch which I would have never found. Wish I had time to do another tour - next trip!
Many thanks.
