Great experience. Loved walking around and learned a lot. Virginia was our tour guide and she was phenomenal! She made the experience fun and provided us with a lot of information which we all enjoyed. The cakes at the cafe were delicious. Would highly recommend this tour — make sure to wear comfortable shoes!

Walked the buda castle region. It was a great little tour. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and showed me sights that I would have never done on my own or known to do. We went to little hidden gems and had some really great coffee and cake! The walk is very well worth it and gave a great history Budapest. I also got some insider tips of where to go and what to eat while in Budapest.

An Enjoyable Stroll

Our guide, Kristina, has one of the more engaging and enthusiastic personalities of all the tour guides we met while traveling in Central Europe. She is knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We also met a great couple from Orlando who also contributed to the overall enjoyment of the tour.
