The tour guide was one of the best tour guides that my wife and I ever had she was incredibly informative professional courteous and knowledgeable. After the tour or I felt like I had a firm grasp of the history of Buda Castle and the events that took place there both historically and currently. I would highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic! Very knowledgeable and accommodating guide. A lot of history in a short space of time! She even told me about a concern at the basilica church that evening which I went to and was stunning! Highly recommended guide
