I went on two tours with this company: the general Budapest tour and the Communism tour. The general tour is perfect for those who have just arrived in the city who want to see the main attractions and learn the dos and don'ts of touring Budapest. We learned a lot about the foods and goodies to try, which helped guide the rest of our culinary adventures as well.

As the guide informed us at the start of the communism tour, it was "more of a talking than a walking tour". The two guides on this tour were knowledgeable and offered great anecdotes, both personal and second-jand of what things were like under the communist regimes in Hungary. They also provided an insight into the current political situation in Hungary, which was interesting given that the general elections happen here in early April.

All in all, I'd highly recommend taking a tour or two with this group. They operate based solely on donations, so give what you feel the tour is worth. :-) I felt it was fabulous value.

A really good informative tour. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made it quite fun as well. We did not know Budapest that well so on our first full day wanted to do this tour to allow us to get our bearings of Budapest and understand what we were looking at. This walking tour certainly done that and also the guided pointed out various other places which we visited at our leisure during the rest of our stay. A must do activity !!

it was our first experience when we did the general walking tour. it was just after landing. the tour guide Angie was so enthusiastic with a motivated voice and happy smile. we were authentically introduced to the famous points of attractions (nice walk up to buda castle), to local food ( even to a delicious locally made chocolate with red dots :), and we became addicted as Angie promised), to transportation in addition to many tips about the thermal baths, the free activities and anything we could ask for ( the caps color of water bottles were explained too).
Overall it was excellent.
The second tour was the communism one. the guide was really knowledgeable, having lived through that era and shared his own experience with many examples about all the subjects we discussed. it was very informative and emotional
Thanking the group and wishing prosperity to all members.

My boyfriend and I did this tour first thing in the morning the first day we got to Budapest! It helped orient ourselves within the city and we both learned so much about the history and current state of Budapest/ Hungary that we didn't know! Our guide Ági gave us so many extra tips about where to eat, what to eat/ drink and which sites may interest us specifically. We went to one of the restaurants he recommended (Frici Papa) and it was delicious, huge portions, traditional hungarian food and cheap, which is exactly what we requested! Highly recommend this tour for anyone heading to Budapest!
