Really enjoyed this tour! I can be somewhat claustrophobic, and I didn’t have any issues. I felt the tunnels were well ventilated and very large. There wasn’t any time where I felt suffocated or anxious in the size of them.

An amazing tour with a fantastic tour guide. Just be careful of what footware you choose at its can be muddy.

The tour was very interesting and the guide was absolutely fantastic. It's a must!

Interesting tour, Budapest is also worth a visit below the surface!

Worth it, it's nice and cool down there, ideal for hot summer days
