      Great tour and an amazing tour guide!
      Budapest is an absolute gorgeous city with so much history. We booked a full day, private city tour with Tourist Angel. Our guide was Dalia Csizmar and she did a fabulous job! Dahlia took the time to sit with us prior to the tour to give us a brief overview of the sights and the day. More importantly, she took the time to get an understanding of our interests and reworked the entire day to accommodate them. Dalia’s was incredibly personable; her English was excellent and her in-depth knowledge of the sites was amazing. She set a high bar of expectations for how we approach any further tours. This was a great tour with an amazing tour guide. We would highly recommend this tour.

      Great tour with very knowledgable guide
      Thank you to Alexandra who was our guide - so knowledgable about everything - we learned so much about the beautiful sights in Budapest but also about the country and culture. Would highly recommend this tour especially if you are here for a short time and want to cram a lot in. Thank you for a wonderful day.

      Paul was our guide. He adapted the tour to our requests; he spoke English wonderfully; his knowledge of the area was excellent; he showed us out of way unique places instead of the main sites (which we had already seen). He was also very pleasant and enjoyable. Highly recommend Paul

      Special Memories
      Ww were so excited to have Alexandra as our guide today. She was just awesome. She took us to lots of major sights and was so knowledgeable about the history of this beautiful country. We can't wait to explore many of these places more thoroughly, but this was the perfect introduction to Budapest. Our driver was excellent too. Thank you for a most memorable day.

      We had a terrific tour with Alexandra and Tibi. They were very personable and you can tell that they love their love their jobs. We learned a lot about the Hungarian history and the start of Catholicism.

      Amazing walking tour in Budapest
      We had a fantastic time with our guide today, her name was noemi bodiss and she was great. Her English was amazing and she knew all the best places to go and gave us so much information. We found she was so lovely and really looked after us. It was our first time in Budapest and we got to see so much, thank you so much. A fantastic tour with a wonderful tour guide, would definitely recommend 😃

      An exceptional tour !
      An exceptional tour ! We had a superb time with our guide Alexandra. We did an all day tour with a car for the longer walking bits. Alexandra was exceptionally knowledgeable on the history of Budapest. We spent ages talking about the key points in the country’s history, some of the key figures, as well as having guided tours of two major churches, and lots of beautiful scenery. Alexandra spoke perfect English, was really friendly and helpful, and even adjusted parts of the tour for my wife’s benefit (as she has a bad knee and struggles with lots of stairs). We could not recommend this tour more strongly. It was a great way to spend a day, and we learnt so much about Budapest and the history of Hungary.

      Alexandra was a fabulous guide, 5 stars!
      We totally enjoyed our day tour with Alexandra. She immediately helped us purchase a metro pass for the day and proceeded to show us the city. Alexandra knew much history and so many details of the places she took us. We saw both sides of the river. She took us to a great confectionary for lunch. We caught the changing of the guard at the prime minister's office. Alexandra was very patient as I asked her details for my notebook. She took us to the Central market and helped us shop. Alexandra's English was fluent. I recommend the tour and Alexandra as your guide most highly!

      Best way to see the city!
      There is no better way to see the city and learn the history of this beautiful place. Our guide Alexandra was the best! She really knew the history of the city and Hungary. She was very kind and answered all of our questions about the history of the country. You could tell that she really likes what she does. We got to see all the main sites of the city and learn about it. If you are in Budapest for a short time, this is the best way to get the most out of the city! Totally worth it!

      Exceptional and great value for money
      We had a personal guide whose knowledge of Budapest was exceptional and we would never have been able to navigate the sites of Budapest without her. Knowing about accessibility on public transport to ensuring we could access key sights with my wheelchair where key to our tour and EVA couldn’t have done more. She also had encyclopaedic knowledge about the history of Budapest and the sights we visited We spent about 5 hours covering all the key sights and the tour was excellent value for money

      Excellent private tour
      This was a fantastic private tour. My guide (Akexandra) was extremely knowledgeable about everything I saw (and always had a helpful answer to my random questions). We managed to see a good set of Budapest highlights in one day, including many things I'd never have spotted without the expertise of my guide. It was a friendly and professional tour. I was really impressed.

      Outstanding Budapest city tour and Customer Service
      The Tourist Angel team provides excellent customer service! When making the booking I reserved the wrong day. The tour guide was looking for us at 9:30 and we arrived in Budapest 5 hours later! We took a 2 hour tour on day 1 and the manager helped us rebook for 6 hours on day 2. Our day one tour guide was Susanne and day 2 was Kate. Both were excellent. We not only saw the sights of Budapest we wanted to see, but learned the fascinating history of Hungary. They pointed out important buildings and bridges, sharing stories of the construction. Having a driver made the experience easy. The day one driver made our way though streets blocked off by the politzi for National Holiday celebrations. It was most impressive! The day two driver was equally adapt at maneuvering the narrow streets. I highly recommend using Tourist Angel for a personally guided city tour of Budapest.

    Noemi gave us a good tour of the main attractions in Budapest. She was kind enough to meet us in the lobby of our hotel to start the tour which was very convenient. She was very nice, knowledgeable and tried to answer our questions but at times she was a little hard to understand. Nevertheless we found the tour very worthwhile.

    We really enjoyed this walking tour because not only was it a private tour (to our surprise), but it hit all the highlights of Budapest. Our guide was Naomi and she was very thorough and knowledgeable about the places we visited. She was very kind and patient because we had our toddler in a stroller with us as well. Our kiddo managed to lose one of his mittens and she took the time to try and locate it for us. Overall, a must do!

    Our guide Dalia is just wonderful.. it is our first day in Budapest; but she carefully explain the history and key events of each place we visited; but kindly offer information eg how to use the train, where does it go, what else you can see. We also ask her as to good hungarian restaurants which she offered a few to try. She is informative, patient and comfortable to be with...Enjoy the walk and the discussion with her tremendously. Thank you for the tour.

    Our guide Dalia was an absolute angel. Due to unforeseen circumstances my husband was delayed. Dalia was flexible and the initial meet and greet was perfect. Together we explored options for our walking tour, tailored to what we wanted and were capable of. Dalia’s local knowledge is exceptional and she is a delightful, gracious and giving person. We saw so much, learnt so much. Dalia helped translate Hungarian language to English very well. The experience we had would not have been possible without Dalia. Thank you so much. If your ever in Australia we would love to show you around and present our hospitality to you.

    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.

    Very good tour with a friendly, knowledgeable guide, Dahlia.
    Dahlia started our tour by asking what we might like to focus on -- history, architecture, arts -- then tailored her tour to include those things. It was very windy and cold when we toured (late December), so even warm rest stops were included! The tour was peppered with local lore as well as personal reflections and provided an excellent introduction to Buda and Pest!
