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.
