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.

Great day trip! Budapest is beautiful and you get to see a good amount for only visiting for a day! Our tour guides were excellent. They give you a good amount of breaks and free time as well!

Great experience with Stephen. He was very knowledgeable about Hungarian history. I recommend his services. You won't regret it. We had a great time in Budapest.
