This tour is fantastic and the most enjoyable thing we did in all of Budapest. We did the evening tour and saw so much of the city that we never would have accomplished on our own. We were worried about the rain, but the Jeep comes with a clear cover (and sides which were not needed) and it did not deter from the experience one bit. It was magical to see so much of the city lit up at night. The tour encompasses most major sites and is a great overview of the city. The audio is played aloud, but the guide is also a wealth of information. We attracted so much attention and smiles as we rode through the streets in the retro Jeep. It was a unique manner of travel. Most of all, I cannot give enough praise to our guide, Laszlo. He is charming, incredibly honest, and a wonderful ambassador for the city of Budapest. He provided drinks, had umbrellas readily available, and was full of enthusiasm.

All the buses were clean and ran on time, the tour through the headphones was very useful however sometimes you could not hear the tour guide announcing which stop you were at. Overall a great experience and good value for money

Anna was lovely ! She gave us all the information required on the walk as well as some history of the locals here as she is a local . Who knows best than a true local from Budapest . Thanks Anna ! Lovely meeting you :)

Gabriel was an exceptional tour guide speaking both professionally and personally about deeply felt subjects. Highly recommended.

Amazing experience. Our guide is such an great person (Fanni) she really enjoys her job. Love it.
