Our driver, Attila, was excellent. He had plenty of Hungarian history and was able to answer any questions

Unfortunately, after it was 24C and sunny the day before the tour, it was 12C and heavy rain. Nevertheless, Attila changed from the standard tour and made sure everyone was happy

I'd recommend this tour but definitely check the weather first

We took the 4 hour small group tour. The pick up arrived with a modern Mercedes minivan. The car was comfortable and clean. The driver took us to the office where the staff was friendly and helpful. There we met our guide Gregory whose English is excellent. His stories about Hungary were really interesting. Great job! 👏🏼

We booked this tour because we wanted to get a brief orientation about Budapest before we ventured out on our own. However, what we received was far more!

Our driver/guide, Gyuri, was exceptional! To start with, he did an unbelievable job navigating the busy streets of the city, while simultaneously sharing the culture and history of this breathtaking place!

He showed us the most iconic and frequently visited places, and some lesser known gems! He was very accommodating to those of our very small group, when we requested opportunities to take pictures along the route.

If you want to tour the city, ride in a comfortable, air conditioned vehicle and see some of the most amazing sights, this is the tour you’ll want to book!

We took our tour on 16 of December.Our tour guide was very informative and fun.The tour covered most of the Budapest's attractions.Our bus drove us to the Buda side of the city to the Gelert Hill and after that to the Fisherman's Bastion.We got great pictures with the city view from both points.After that we also explored the Pest side of the city.On our way we got very useful information about the sights we were passing by.It was very convenient and comfortable way to explore the city and learn about it in limited time.

This trip includes the main interest points of the city. The guide (Attila) is a good English speaker and have a great knowledge about hungarian history. I strongly reccomend to all Budapeste visitors who love to know the history of the places they visit.

Robert managed to take us on a journey of the history of this great city and his own experiences contributed to the 4 hour trip. It was a great way to see this city. Thanks Robert you were a joy to be with and there is no way we could have seen the things we saw ourselves. You have made us want to come back!!

We had a small 7 member English-speaking tour of Budapest with Cityrama on May 3rd. Our guide, Agnes, provided the expected history of the sites we visited. However, she added insights into the impact on the Hungarian people of the political events that shaped the 20th century: being on the losing side of both WW I and WW II, the destruction of 70% of the city by Allied bombing, and the post-war occupation by Communists. This made the tour so much more vivid and interesting. We were hoping to see and learn about Budapest on this tour, and came away with greater understanding of Hungarian people and their resilience through history.

We found the ideal city tour of Budapest with our guide Erica Kathy a superb way to get the most out of visiting Budapest - Budapest is a beautiful city steeped in history and we were lucky to have such a knowledgeable guide who was passionate about everything to do with her city , country, language, history and she even recited a poem and sang us a Hungarian song!
Great fun and highly recommended.
The only downside was the traffic which seems to be heavy all the time! Still Erica filled the time with interesting facts and songs!!

Janka our guide was extremely polite and knowledgeable. Her English was excellent and she knows everything there is to know about Budapest. She could answer every single question we asked without hesitating. Her degree in political science must be standing her in good stead! There were y only four of us doing the tour which obviously made it much more personalised. Highly recommendable!

Booked the Ideal City sightseeing tour and our guide was Robert. Easy to book by phone as well as online. Time well spent, our guide well informed and pleasant, answering all our questions. Robert took us to some of the panoramic viewpoints to see the beautiful city and the flowering springtime blooms were absolutely wonderful. This is an excellent way to see the most relevant places of Budapest to be able to choose later in more detail.
I will certainly book other tours with City Rama when I return.
