Relaxed and informative small group guide. Spent as much time as we wanted asking questions and sharing insights and history or Bud and Pest and and Hungarian history. Much appreciated.

This was a great way to get your bearings in Budapest. On a cold day, there were only two of us on the ride so we had tour guide, Andy, to ourselves. Highly recommended.
