One week ago, me and a group of 10 friends went on a private walking tour around Buda Castle, St Matthias Church, Fisherman’s Bastion and other beautiful landmarks. Our tour guide was a lady called Katalin, and she was so friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Budapest. Best tour we’ve ever been on with the best tour guide! Really good value for money, I would give more stars if I could. Budapest is such a beautiful city we will definitely be back!

Bea was wonderful and gave an extremely informative tour. She answered all of our questions without hesitation and provided such valuable insight on Hungarian history, values, and culture. It went far deeper than a touristy viewing; I feel like my horizons expanded.

Budimpesta is the very beautifull city. The both sides are beautiful with lot of nice things to see. I recomend in my top5 location Buda castle and my advice is to take all day for tour because it is lot of things there. Also restoraunts and bars :)

The tour was very informative and interesting, our guide Julia was fantastic. The Hospital in the Rock was a really eye opener and definitely worth a visit.

Excellent tour! Highly recommend to people wanting to visit the beautiful places of Budapest.
