I thoroughly enjoyed the sightseeing tour around Budapest - Daniel was friendly, informative and provided really interesting insights and stories into different sites and monuments. I was travelling solo but was instantly made to feel at ease - bonus points for great conversation throughout the drive! Daniel went above and beyond my expectations of this tour - I’d fully recommend for all who are only visiting Budapest for a shorter period of time but would like an intimate look at the city. Daniel also kindly provided a list of personalised recommendations for me which was very kind (and spot on!). Thank you again for making this trip very memorable.

Sophie is great and patient guider. She explained very detailed about the Buda district and mentioned many historical locations which actually is not easy to find if you travel alone. Enjoyed also the coffee break so I can ask about Hungary politics and Hungary culture. Highly recommend!

My fiancé and I had so much fun! Our photographer was so nice, she had great ideas for photos and locations. We got our edited photos back the same day, and they were all gorgeous photos! We would absolutely recommend this experience!

The guide was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the places of the visit. The visit was very complete and beautiful.

Karen was brilliant, she was a great story teller with funny jokes along the way. Would highly recommend this tour.
