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!

Guiden Pieter var helt fantastisk. Vi fik en meget grundig gennemgang af lokaliteter i omkring Mathias kirken, slottet og regeringsbygningerne, som ialt varede 3 timer incl. et lille stop på en cafe.

Very interesting tour, allowing to better understand main stages of Hungarian history and to discover it's heritage. Our guide was very nice and provided clear explanations.

Gabriel was a very knowledgeable, articulate and fun guide. He gave us a detailed and interesting tour. We highly recommend him for your castle district tour.

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