Booked this for our first afternoon in Budapest and it was an excellent - and fun - way to get our bearings. Our guide, Bart, was excellent and really accommodating. We were hungry before we took the tour but no time to get any food, so Bart took us straight to the Jewish Quarter to pick up a sandwich and coffees for our journey. It was a bright and sunny afternoon in early March so despite the sun it was pretty cold, but blankets were provided and we were wrapped up well so we were fine. We saw so much being in a “convertible” and outside rather than with a roof up; loved it! Bart made many stop offs for photos and viewings with guided info but to be honest he kept up a running commentary whilst driving so we really felt we learnt a lot about Budapest and it’s history throughout. He also booked us into Seasons Bistro for dinner and dropped us there at the end of our tour; great service from him and I’d highly recommend this private tour!
Danube bend hike. Had an amazing experience and couldn't have asked for a better host than Gyuri. He picked us up from outside our hotel at the exact time he said he would. He was very welcoming and made us feel at ease and we did the hike at our own pace. He also took some amazing photos for us. He wanted us to gain the best out of our experience and even offered to take us to the next day to finish the part of the hike we were unable to do due to weather conditions (despite already having Christmas Eve plans). His English was very good and we had no communication issues. Would definitely love to come back for another hike with Gyuri :-)
Lovely little app but could have said that there were a number of steps to start the tour which less able bodied people may not be able to cope with. If that had been stated a meeting place, perhaps at the site of the first clue, could have been given as well. Also, one of the clues the escalator was closed (for repair) so didn’t have a chance of answering that one. Overall would recommend it as wouldn’t have visited the places we went through.
Anna our guide was enthusiastic and shared a lot of interesting details. She even guided us in places that was out of the tour. It was a really enlightening tour allowing to have a deeper insight on local's daily life. Wish we had done the tour on the first day! Despite the rain we enjoy it to the utmost!
Our guide Zsophia was very good. Very friendly, extremely helpful and knew what she was talking about. It was a very, very cold afternoon but we had pit stops inside and a proper sit down and a mulled wine/coffee in another location
