Have done several major Segway city tours before and this was right up there. The castle area and its architecture and history is brilliant and the views back over the river looking over Pest are amazing. Our guide Yusef was great, very knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. Never felt rushed and we were able to stop off several times to explore. Good value and much cheaper than if we had turned up on the day and paid direct. Fantastic value!

Our guide was Daniel and he was extremely knowledgeable in the history and politics of Hungary. Conversation was easy and he told us stories that you wouldn't find in textbooks or on the Internet. No topics were out of bounds, super interesting. Probably the best 3 hours I've spent in Budapest :) he took us around the castle district we even went into the The Hilton hotel and in the wine cellar! Absolutely worth it!

Daniel’s depth of knowledge was amazing. So informative and a great story teller. We learned so much and enjoyed his company. Highly recommend!

Great way to see Buda Castle area...our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly.

Very good and fun tour, we had a guide named Ali that was superb !!!
