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!

From our personal experience, this is one of the best ways to cover Budapest as you get most places to visit in a day at least from the outside. Alex was great and also had enough knowledge about places. Most importantly he was speaking in English which was a relief. I recommend this 100% if you are on two days stay in Budapest.

Miklos has an encyclopedic knowledge of the players and events of Hungarian communism. He's a teacher, complete with a handout at the end. This tour is more than a Cliffs Notes version and we learned a lot.

Tuktuk arrived in time with our great and proud Hungarian guide: Zoltan! Great tour and very friendly and helpful and and and... We will come back and book it again! Nothing to complain, only enjoy!

Amazing experience, our driver was lovely and very educational x
