We joined the morning tour with Agnes and her mate. The group was pretty big, twenty some people in the freezing cold. They spoke not only about the history and the sights but society, everyday life, giving good tips where to hang out and how to save money. They were very engaging and funny.
Good job!

We attended the tour thinking it would be a mix of sights and bars, but overall it was just a walk around the Jewish quarter with a visit to one bar only, and ending up in a Jewish Book stall. The Tour guides were however very imformative, and helpful (Susie and a male collegue) and were also very helpful with venues to spend New Year and to watch football!

The „Jewish District and the best Pubs” tour is basically about the Hungarian Jewish culture. Since the typically Budapest ruin-pubs mostly located in the Jewish district we introduce that culture, too, giving you tips where to go out later on.
The aim of this walking tour is not to drag you in pubs, bars – as this is not a bar hopping tour.

Thanks for your review, though, in the future we try to do even better job;-)

The Free Budapest Walking Tours are simply the best way you can spend your time if you are on a short visit to this beautiful and historic city and want to know more about it. We attended two of the walks, the morning city tour which was by guided Emma and the Wednesday afternoon Communist Tour which was guided by Suzy. Both tours were brilliant, providing us with an abundance of information about Hungary and Budapest whilst taking us to see many of the main city sights. Both Emma and Suzy proved to be fantastic guides, they were very relaxed, welcoming, funny and informative whilst ensuring at all times that everyone got the most from the tour. I cannot recommend these tours highly enough and also recommend getting onto a tour as early as possible during your visit, you'll pick up a lot of useful information.

Dear Agnes

As promised I said I would write a reveiw as soon as I got back and had time to reflect on what we achieved whilst touring your beautiful city for the past 5 days. We loved the tour you and Suzy took us on around Buda and Pest and you are an excellent tour guide. You showed us good and parts of the city and made us all more knowledgeable about Budapest. We also had an excellent tour of the Jewish sector and best pubs which Emma and Suzy took us on, they were also very knowledgeable and again we now know a lot of the history behind what happened to the Jewish people in Budapest. Please pass on our sincere thanks to Emma and Suzy and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for making this a dream tour for my party. The memories will last in our minds for ever. I am sure your name will stick with us all and we will be recommend your walking tours to anyone we know who will be travelling to Budapest. Thank you once again and I will continue following you on Face book.

Have a lovely Christmas and New Year and all the very best for 2011
