We visited Budapest with two children. Zoltan was our guide for two half-days. We met in the morning and toured for 4 hours for two days. He made sure to show us all that we were interested in while also paying attention to how much walking the kids could take. When he noticed they were getting tired, he proposed using... More

Zoltan picked us up in our hotel lobby, and we chatted for 20 mins so he could get a feel for what we wanted to see, which was non-touristy, historical sites of the city. Like other reviewers said, he started off with a stop at a bar for brandy shots, which was great because it was cold and raining. Now... More

We spent the day together starting with getting picked up at the train station and getting a valuable lesson about the Metro!! That alone started out our day great. She shared with us favorite Hungarian treats, St Stephens Basicila, Fishermans Bastion and St Matthias church. So many historical and architectural details you can only learn from a local. Her enthusiasm... More

I had the best time with Zoltan. It was like meeting your old college buddy who moved to Budapest. We instantly hit it off. We meaning the whole family including my wife, and three teenage daughters. We started out the morning with some brandy. I am not a big drinker but that was a great idea. We stopped at several... More

My family of 5, including 3 teenage girls who are not easy to please, took a full day tour with Zoltan and loved every minute of it! Zoltan picked us up at our hotel in the morning. Before we left the hotel, he provided some interesting background on Budapest and asked us about our interests. He then tailored the tour... More

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful guided tour of Budapest second to none. Zoltan met us in our hotel lobby and took us on a 4+ hour walk around both the Buda and Pest sides of the city. While we certainly saw some of the popular tourist destinations, Zoltan guided us through several less traveled areas providing historical context... More

This review should have been written eight months ago, with the delay largely a result of my repeated attempts to capture in words the impact of Zoltan and Calliope on nine 10th and 11th grade students and their adult sponsors in November, 2015. When one student responded to a question about the high point of the trip, his one-word answer... More

Our family of five just completed a full day tour of Budapest with Zoltan, and it was wonderful! Zoltan was very knowledgable about the history of Budapest and Hungary and lead us to some great places we never would have found on our own. He designed the tour based on our interests and was game for any suggestions we had,... More

My slightly road weary family of four ended our time in Europe in Budapest. I had arranged for a half-day tour with Zoltan. We secured the tour a few months in advance, and the communication via email was prompt and thorough, At the appointed date and time, Zoltan met us in the lobby of the Budapest Marriott. He had studied... More

Friday 3 June 2016 We met Zoltan in the Corinthian Hotel Lobby in Budapest. This is the third time that we have met Zoltan over the past six years. We drove to Aquincum where Zoltan gave us an indepth history/walking tour of the old Roman ruins under the motorway. (Most people do not know that the ruins are there!). We... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
