We booked last minute and Gábor was fantastic. He gave us just enough information about the places we were visiting and allowed us to move freely through the city. We stopped at a great place for a quick bite and then continued. Highly recommend, as we would not have been able to see everything without Gábor’s help!

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.

Gabriel gave us a brilliant tour of Budapest. We had our elderly mother with us and we managed to see all the sites. Gabriel provided a lot of information on the history in a fun, interesting manner. Highly recommended this tour. Nothing beats having a local show you around.
