An absolute joy from beginning to end. Definitely the highlight of our Budapest trip. Not only was the hike full of breathtaking panoramic views but also fascinating historic points of interest. Although the hike and its surroundings were stunning, what really made the walk was the knowledge and enthusiasm of Laszlo. Laszlo had vast knowledge of the natural area, and would interject with short interesting anecdotes and facts. We also stopped for lunch, which was a delight itself, and carried on up to several panoramic viewing towers. Lazslo also took some great photos of us throughout the hike, which he emailed to us later that evening. If you only have a few days to spend in Budapest, make sure you book a day with Laszlo. You will not regret it.
