Our evening tour with Anita began at the office behind the Opera House, which was the first stop.There was an event about to begin at the Opera House, so our access inside was limited to the lobby, which is quite impressive. We were given a brief history and some interesting information about the Opera House before moving on. We walked along Andrassy ut to St. Stephen's Basilica where we were given some historical facts about the Basilica as well as information on the immediate area. We proceeded toward the Danube River and the Chain bridge while stopping occasionally to see some important sites and hear about some of the history. There were many opportunities for some good photographs along the way and Anita was quite patient while the guests took pictures.
While Anita was very professional and informative as well as a very friendly guide, the highlight for me was the nighttime boat ride on the Danube River. Budapest is just gorgeous at night and some of the sites are simply spectacular after dark. I was particularly impressed with the view of the Parliament building. The boat offered an audio guide in twenty languages as well as enclosed and open air seating. Refreshments were also available for purchase.
I thoroughly enjoyed the evening with Absolute Walking Tours. I feel they offer very good value for the price of the tour.
