          Different aspects of art nouveau at its best
          We enjoyed it so much. It‘s so much better to have a guide who knows about the topic and also loves it and not just learned it by heart Thank you so much Miklos Tim and Christine

          This tour is not to be missed! The other reviews say it better than I can, and they're absolutely right.

          Learn to look up in Budapest!
          Fungararian is a retired history professor with a wealth of knowledge he enjoys sharing. The tour included use of the Metro and trams (useful as it was our first day in town). This allowed us to visit many of the most glamorous buildings in town and generally got us oriented to the city. We learned the primary features of Art nouveau so I'm sure I'll recognize it in the future. He was very accommodating through the tour and even asked if we wanted to add on an extra 30 minutes to see two additional buildings. The stained glass windows at the end of the tour were spectacular! You will see the city through different eyes after this tour!

          If you like history and architecture, do not miss this opportunity with Miklos.
          What a marvelous tour with Miklos! As an architect, I can attest to his breadth and depth of knowledge about not just Hungarian Art Nouveau and Art Deco but the history which influenced what you see today. He led us on a well thought out tour (including the use of public transportation which saved our feet) to see about a dozen buildings. We ended with his warm hospitality at his home to see the outstanding stain glass work of Miksa Roth which survived WWII with his cat modeling for us. Sign up. You will not be disappointed!

          Excellent Shopping Trip
          As always an excellent trip to the flea market. Miklos is a great guide and knows how to find and get the best deals. Make sure to go on Saturday because that is when the most vendors are there as well as a smaller market outside the main one. Other days of the week are not really worth it. OH! and you get to taste the best langos in town!

          Great guide and teacher
          We were fortunate to have four walks throughout Budapest with Miklos Molnar. He is a gifted teacher and guide who helped us see so much of Budapest while gaining a deepened understanding of its history and future. He pitched the talks with just the right combination of information, insight and humor. His experience teaching at the university level was evident in his wonderful fund of knowledge. He listened carefully and always used our questions as a way to give added insights about Hungary. I can’t recommend Miklos Molnar highly enough. I hope we have the opportunity to have him as our guide again.

          History well explained
          Miklos spent three hours with our group of five ladies. He showed us the major sites on the a Jewish Heritage tour and gave us the history in a comprehensive and compelling way. He was open and kind. I would highly recommend him.

          Fantastic Jewish Heritage Tour
          Went on the Jewish Heritage Tour with Miklos and had a fantastic time. Small group of 5 adults from the US. Miklos is a retired professor and was friendly, knowledgeable and gave us a fantastic tour. His knowledge of the history of the city, country and the local Jewish history was extensive! I highly recommend him!!

          Whatever you want to know, ask Miklós.
          We spent a very enjoyable 2 hours with Miklós. When we booked he asked what we were interested in and he came prepared. I wanted to know how to pronounce Hungarian words. He brought some great written materials and took us through the alphabet and accents and demonstrated how to apply them. We also talked about where Hungarians came from, Jewish history, the synagogue and other things. A great opportunity to learn things you want to know from a local who speaks excellent English!

          This was an amazing tour by a knowledgeable, organized, credible guide. You can ask Miklós anything..he knows the city, its history, architecture, monuments, and its culture. What is so special about the tour though is that Miklós is adaptable and flexible. He tailors the tour to the participants' interests, background, and physical endurance. He has a great sense of humor. It was excellent. The rating scale is 5 points; I rate him a 10+

          Navigate the transit system like a pro.
          If you do only one tour then this transportation tour will have you using trams, underground, metro, trolley buses, and your feet. Miklos is so knowledgeable, he comes prepared, and adapts easily. This is ideal for your first day, and then you can travel throughout the entire transit system easily. I learned so much about culture, history and markets and architecture while learning to navigate a very good and integrated public transportation system. Excellent tour. It was so much fun and so useful.

          Introduction to Budapest
          While in Budapest, we took a private tour of Budapest with Miklos of Fungarian tours. The tour was fantastic! Miklos is colourful, candid, extremely knowledgeable and made the tour a true pleasure. I would strongly recommend engaging Fungarian when in Budapest and develop a unique perspective on the local highlights and Hungarian culture.

          A fascinating peep into life under Communism and the unique park of toppled Communist era heroic statues.
          This was a very interesting tour that combined a visit to the Statue Park with discussion about what life was like in Hungary under the Communist regime. The Statue Park is an outdoor museum where statues of the Communist era were taken after they were toppled at the end of the regime. It starts with 'Stalin's Boots' - these are the boots that were all that was left of the statue of Stalin when the Hungarian people brought it down. The boots are simply enormous, as are all the statues. Miklos Molnar provides an authoritative guide to each statue, the story behind it and its context, together with his own experiences of life under Communism and the experiences of the people of Hungary in general. He is a knowledgeable and engaging guide.

          Knowledgeable Art Nouveau tour
          My husband and I enjoyed our 3hr tour with Miklos, focused on Art Nouveau. We learnt a great deal about three key figures in the Hungarian A.N. movement. At a moderate pace, we stopped at about a dozen buildings, to admire and discuss. Miklos graciously welcomed us to his home where he shared his personal glassworks by Miksa Roth. In addition, he answered our many questions about Hungarian history and culture. We loved taking public transport too!

          Using cabs when visiting Budapest
          We followed Tripadvisor recommendations. Always used Bolt cabs and through the app. All worked so well. When on the streets too. Never raised hand for a cab on the street.

        I am grateful to have met the Fungarian my first day arriving in Budapest. His guidance on the metro and city was excellent for exploring on my own for the duration of my trip. The in-depth education on the Jewish history truly rounded out the richness and complexity of Hungary and Budapest's development. If people are unaware of the impact from the Jewish community, they are truly missing the full story. The Fungarian is an excellent teacher!

        Thank you for your excellent review. No wonder Karl Lueger, the antisemitic mayor of Vienna referred to the fast developing Budapest with his derogative coinage of words: Judapest. He was obviously envious of the fast development and richness of the Hungarian capital. The Jews of the 19th century found their home in Budapest and contributed a lot to her prosperity.

        Excellent, informative well rounded. Miklòs has extensive knowledge of and feeling for the Jewish history of Budapest. It was neither narrow nor linear but added contextual cultural artistic and contemporary political material into a tour of the essential sites of this once great community. Though tragically obliterated Miklòs brought a lost world back to life for us.

        I could not agree with you more. Apart from being an architectural wonder, the Dohány Street Great Synagogue is an iconic place for the Neolog Hungarian Jewry. This year it's 164 old but together with the Rumbach Street Synagogue, the great piece of Otto Wagner, they still look ancient and modern at the same time. I am happy you appreciated our heritage.
