I have signed my 14 year-old daughter and her same age friend up for this tour as a fun end-of-summer activity. Miklós has taken them on this half day introduction to Budapest tour via walking and public transportation. The girls were thoroughly entertained (and received excellent physical exercise through walking!). Miklós managed to show them several hidden gems of the city and make it an entertaining while extremely educational half day. He taught them about the different architectural styles as well as Hungarian history and the history of this beautiful city. Miklós - as I learned - has been a university professor during his professional years , including spending time at one of the best US universities as guest lecturer, with a waste knowledge of history, art history and literature. His English is impeccable. Indeed this was a unique experience for the two girls. Highly recommended!

Thank you for your feedback. Highly appreciated. This age group was a real challenge, so I am quite pleased that they reacted positively. Your nice words give Fungarian more credit to label our tours as an educational experience. My bon mot for the young ladies was: Budapest is an open-air textbook. They seem to have appreciated it.

I have used Fungarian services twice and I can really recommend them. This time I went with my daughter (11 years old) and Balázs organsied a specialized tour for her. I can really recommend using Fungarian also for children, Balázs was a truly excellent guide and my daughter really got to learn and have fun at the same time. And for a second time Miklós put together a special program for me. If you want something more than a stardadized tour, I recommend Fungarian.

First of all, we have to mention that our guide, Miklós, was wonderful. He is so accommodating, knowledgeable and funny! We felt comfortable interacting with him right from the beginning. He paced and customised the tour so well and provided us with not only the necessary information and materials such as guide books and maps to help us with getting around, he also bought us local treats to try out! The tour itself was truly worth taking up. On top of learning how to make use of the many different types of public transport to get around, we gained a much better idea on how to spend our 3 days in Budapest ftuitfully. It was a fun experience hopping on and off the different transportation like the locals, worry free, and learning more about things that we came across. Anothee advantage of the tour being in the local's perspective, we quickly learnt what we should and should not do in Budapest. Definitely a good way to be introduced to Budapest for the first time!

Dear Juliana, Thank you for your enthusiastic words. I am most pleased to hear that you found the tour structure including several means local public transport enjoyable. It was a good idea to start your visit with this tour and thus I could save you time and energy on sorting things out in an unknown environment where even the language is a culture shock. Cheers, Miklós and the Fungarian Team

Typical marketplace with lot of local products. Don’t forget to stop by butchers’ stores and taste mangalica sausage. The sooner the visit the better.

Dear Ondrak, I am afraid it's a misplaced review. We, the Fungarian Team, never had you as a guest since we do not have a Main Market tour. However, we do introduce our guests to the market but only as part of a proper tour like Public Transport Tour, Full-day tour, etc. Since our rating is usually 5 and since we have nothing to do with the Market itself, we would appreciate if you could withdraw this review from our page. Kindest regards, Miklós Molnár, owner and manager of Fungarian

We were lucky on a Wednesday. There are lots of complaints about the emptiness on weekdays, but as the Hungarian saying goes: even a blind hen finds a seed. The best is of course Saturday, and perhaps Sunday. Hope to see you next year, Miklós
