Reviewed June 27, 2013

Did the grand city tour today and was very impressed with the info from our guide, lots of extra info over than just this is this etc etc. The young lady, sorry but can't remember her name was very interested in her subject and held lively discussions on the history of the area. Well done and thank you

“Great way to spend your time”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Booked this tour though Corihthia Hotel and I was lucky enough to have Balazs Levay as a guide. He is personable, knowledgeable, fun and engaging. Highly recommend this tour - its worth your time in beautiful Budapest.

“Worse than terrible”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

My husband, myself and our 3 college kids just got back from a terrible night of dinner and folklore show in budapest. The tour says 4 hours. They make you wait in the lobby of your hotel at 6:30pm for pick up by 7:00 pm. They picked us up at 6:50. Then we went to a stop to pick up 5 other people and we waited 10 minutes for 2 other people. Keep in mind it was 93 degrees out and if a bus is stopped by law it has to be shut off, so no air!!! Then we drove 10 more minutes to the cityrama office so people who were stupid and didn't pay online could pay. Once again no air!!! By the time we were on the actual tour 45 minutes had been wasted on a bus. We saw some sights, but keep in mind the tour director, I use that term very loosely, was doing the tour in Spanish and English. He said 1/3 of the commentary in English and 2/3 more commentary in Spanish. We arrived in a dump of a restaurant with a meal that was not edible. The 7 people at our table did not eat, I love food, but I wouldn't feed this to my dogs or my mother in law. All in all, it was not worth 90.00 a person. I tried this company once in Paris and they consistently provide the worst tours. Beware of cityrama tours, high price, bargain basement quality.

Dear Mutton1023,

We appreciate that you took the time and commented on the Budapest by Night tour recently. We are sorry that your experience about Cityrama's service was worse than terrible.
Regarding the pick up service all tour companies who offer guaranteed tours collect customers from hotels that is not part of the 4 hours that the tour's duration is. In your case taking the weather conditions in consideration on top (summer period) i agree that it took longer than normal. The restaurant welcomes 20-30.000 customers a year and in the past 4 years we have been working with them and had very little amount of complaints on the food or location. I forwarded your comments on the food to the restaurant manager.
Was the location and food really that bad that you would not feed this to your dogs or mother in law? From all other passengers we did not receive a bad review. Unfortunately i could not find any bad reviews on the restaurant's Tripadvisor site as they seem to have registered recently.
