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.

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.
