Our personal tour guide, Nora, is amazing; she is one of the warmest, intuitive people I have ever had the privilege of meeting. Nora warmly greeted me and my fiancé at our hotel, escorting us to her spacious car - water provided. During the ride, she pointed out sites of interest and natural beauty, allowing us at various stops, to stretch our legs and explore; the experience was enriched by Nora's vast wealth of knowledge and her ability to seamlessly switch between factoids, history, and more personal, casual conversation. Nora truly made our experience in Budapest, so magical! She is hands down, the best tour guide I have ever had, and a kind, intelligent and genuine person! Although we only spent a few hours in her company, I can honestly say that I miss her warmth and authenticity.

I came to Budapest with my parents and I booked this tour with Gabriel as we wanted to make the most of our time in Budapest with a guide. Thanks to Gabriel we had the most unforgettable experience due to his knowledge, experience and enthusiasm that allowed us to learn so much about the history of Budapest and admire its beauty even more. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone visiting Budapest and would myself book additional tours with Gabriel in the future.
