The guide was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. We had had a tour of the city already by our cruise line, so she customized her walking tour to include things we had not yet seen, and skipped things we had. We enjoyed her a lot.

We had a wonderful tour with Dalia on the first morning of our visit in Budapest. We learnt a lot about the city’s history and got ideas about things to do/ explore more in the next couple of days of our trip. Dalia was very knowledgeable, polite, and adaptable. Highly recommended!

Had a wonderful time with these guys. We did two tours with them - one in Bude, one in Pest. You're off to a good start with Budapest's architecture, but the narrative from the two tour guides really brought it to life. They were both easy to understand, very happy to answer questions, and importantly taught us a huge amount about this city. And with the Budapest card, they are free two!
Both walks are essential for any trip here.

What an absolute gem of an afternoon. Adam gave us a gold star tour walking, tram and metro across the City. He went all out to give us the history and very passionate in his knowledge. No question to big/small. Just 6 of us. Very personable and made our short weekend memorable. What a 1st day and hard to beat! A 'must do' if you have the time, reasonable cost and very accommodating to your requests. Highly recommended! £20 per person, worth every penny! Hopefully, both another next time here.

Our guide was a lovely Hungarian lady called Dalia, very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions we had, or accommodate any requests
Very interesting tour, very worthwhile
It was bitterly cold by time we finished so my advice would be to dress warmly as very exposed on the higher areas on Buda

Adam is truly a Tourist Angel. We spent three hours privately touring Budapest. His knowledge of history, culture and art dramatically increased our understanding of Budapest and Hungary from pre-history to the present day. Next time I’m in Hungary Adam will be my first call.

After a bit of confusion over where to meet each other, we met up with our tour guide Naomi. Naomi’s english is good although her accent sometimes forces you to concentrate. There was only two of us in our group so hearing was not an issue although it might be in a larger group.

The day was very hot and Naomi sometimes had a tendency to dwell too much on minutia standing in the hot sun and not keep the tour moving. Overall we were very satisfied with the results and would use this company again.
