Having a free afternoon in Budapest I decided I should take a walking tour to get better acquainted with the city. A friend suggested one of Robert’s, having had an enjoyable excursion with him a few weeks previously, and I chose his “4 sites : 4 stories” tour, which covered the areas around the Central Market in Pest and Gellert Hill in Buda.
Both Robert and this tour were good choices. It’s an interesting area with a lot of history and Robert had a great deal of information about it, much of it backed up with illustrations and photographs of how the various sites looked in the past. He had a wealth of stories, both about this area and about Budapest generally, which made the tour come alive – I had a number of questions during our walk and he was able to answer them all immediately!
Robert is an affable host, speaks excellent English (he’s spent time in the UK) and clearly loves his subject. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, it really helped me to feel more “grounded” in Budapest and I shall certainly choose another of his tours if – when! - I return to this wonderful city - köszönöm szépen, Robert, thank you very much!
