Cristian (sorry, I’m sure I’m spelling. It wrong ) was a wonderful guide. He took us through the history of the Jewish community of Budapest with some stops in the “street art” scene, local culture and politics, and how ruin bars played a major part in the revival of the entertainment district! If you’re ever in Budapest, even for just a few hours, this is definitely the activity you should be doing.

We booked this to orientate ourselves at the beginning of our mini break, and to give us some background on Budapest. The tour was great and a very small ‘small group bike tour’ as we were the only two on it, which was great. The pace of the tour and the balance of cycling and stopping to chat about the area etc was perfect and we learnt a lot about Hungary and Budapest from our guide.

My boyfriend and me had a private tour with Krisztián. He showed us the alternative and jewish parts of Budapest and we enjoyed the tour very much. Due to his broad knowledge we could ask a lot of questions and so there was a lot of flexibility in the structure of our tour. I really recommend this tour and the local tourguide Krisztián!

We had a superb guide, whose knowledge of Hungarian history was very impressive and was a great pleasure to talk to, both about matters relating to the reserved tour and about more diverse aspects of European history and more contemporary events. We would have enjoyed spending a further thrtee hours with him.

excellent way to discover the city th guide was very proffesional and nice we had a lot of fun
