Like so many travelers, we feel the best way to get to know a place and its people is through the eyes of a local guide. Insight Cities fills that objective with aplomb. We booked two tours with Insight Cities, the City History tour with Andras (in combination with Taste Hungary), and the Jewish tour with Eszter. Bonita, the founder of Insight Cities, combined the highlights of both tours so that the itineraries would be complimentary but not duplicative. Andras, on day 2, was particularly accommodating, as he included sites on the Buda side not part of his original preparation while skirting those we had managed to catch on our own. Both guides were accomplished, pleasant, sensitive, and good-humored. We would recommend Insight Cities for Budapest as well as other destinations.
