Fantastic guide . Highly recommended.
Gergely picked us up at the airport and drove us around the city, explaining much about the Hungarian history and stoping in the most beautiful places.

We loved it.

Mr. Gergely Szabo showed my husband and I the most amazing sites in both Buda and Pest. Made everything understandable and interesting. He is dependable and extremely knowledgeable. Great choice for our private tour.

Budapest is such an awesome city, with so many things to do and see!
We stayed at Danubius Astoria for 7 days. The hotel has a great location and very good breakfasts
Beware though: We were scammed by a taxi and we found a great many waiters and waiters to be rude. In addition, we were disappointed with the food quality at various restaurants and found it unacceptable that 90% of the bills were only issued in Hungarian.
Esztergom is another amazingly beautiful city,and the trainfare there is cheap. We again experienced communication issues as very few people spoke English or were willing to explain how to get to a bus that would take us to the trainstation, which is situated quite far from the city centre.

ENJOY YOUR STAY IN BUDÀPEST!

Dear Marlene, thank you for your review, but unfortunately it ended up on the wrong page. This is the page where private tours to the Danube Bend that I personally offer can be rated. It seems that you have visited Esztergom and the region on your own, as you mention your experiences with buses and trains. I only offer excursions by private vehicles, never by public transport. So please, delete this review from this site as it obviously does not review my service. I'm sorry that you didn't have the best experiences with taxis and restaurants. On my website you will find many useful tips on such topics for your next visit to Budapest. Kind regards, Gergely Szabó

Gergely did an absolutely amazing job touring Eger! He picked us up at our hotel in Budapest. He was prompt and the car was immaculate and extremely comfortable. While we drove to Eger, he took the time to explain Budapest a bit to us and then gave us some history on Hungary as well. He properly set expectations for us in Eger and was a wealth of knowledge. I would recommend anyone to do a tour with Gergely as he was extremely friendly and offered recommendations as a local. Thank you for such a great day!

Enjoyed a private tour with Szabo in his car. I am pretty sure we saw almost everything of importance, thanks to Szabo. The information he gave about the sites and the city were perfect! We would hire him again.

Ursula is an incredibly savvy guide, and our driver Daniel was excellent. The car was luxurious. We had not known of Herend until this visit and enjoyed the tour and cappuccino there immensely. Tihany is a gem, and I could have spend days at Lake Balaton.

I experienced a great tour with Gergely. He picked me up from my hotel on time. We drove to the town of Eger in eastern Hungary by a nice, comfortable car. We visited the medieval castle and the beautiful old town with the basilica, followed by a great wine tasting. Gergely is a tour guide with a very good knowledge of history, but we also had great conversations on current topics such as economics and politics. I recommend his services to everyone who really wants to get a great overview of Hungary in a short time.

My husband and I visited Budapest for 4 days after a Danube River cruise. We decided to book this tour because it was by car and Budapest is a large city. Our tour guide, Gergely, was punctual, accommodating, professional, informative and interesting. We were picked up at our our hotel. Since we had already walked all over or done the hop on hop off bus on the Pest side we asked him to concentrate on the Buda side.

Gergely was amazing and took us to Citadel lookout with beautiful, expansive views of Budapest from a high view point. We also went inside the historical Gellert baths to see the grandeur of it's architecture. Then it was on to Castle Quarter and the winding cobblestone streets and leafy promenades of Castle Hill leading past baroque houses, Habsburg monuments and cafes including early 19th-century Ruszwurm. We were able to view the magnificent Matthias Church and climb the turrets and terraces of Fisherman’s Bastion offering views over the Danube. We visited the grounds and beautiful square of Buda Castle. We took amazing photos from this vantage point. We returned to the Pest side and strolled the grounds of Vajdahunyad Castle. We asked Gergley to drop us off at the New York Cafe since that was somewhere we wanted to visit.

We can highly recommend this tour for it's convenience in cramming in a lot of sights in a short amount of time. The car was very clean and comfortable, water was provided. The guide, Gergely was very professional and knowledgeable.

I booked a short tour with Gergely Szabo and it was a great decision! It was a snowy, cold afternoon, so he arrived with his private car and offered me to change the walking tour (I booked) to a sightseeing tour with his private car. I excepted his offer. His car was very elegant, comfortable, clean and roomy. If I right remember it was a spick-and-span Passat.
And about Gergely: he is intelligent, energetic, creative and adapted the tour to my interests and needs. He has very widespread information, stories about everything: Hungarian people, buildings, culture, history, politics, pubs, cafes, restaurants etc.
During the tour with Gergely I fell in love with Budapest, this extraordinarily beautiful city.
If you arrive to Budapest, don’t hesitate to book Gergely, he is the BEST!
