Excellent tour with a highly knowledgeable guide. Many sites visited and associated history discussed in detail. Covered a large area of Budapest. Would consider taking again, if I return.

Christine_B

Obviously fact finding, history of Budapest. It was great to have a small group. However, the guide didn’t take control. He kept saying it’s up to us. We’re not the experts though. Sometimes was difficult to understand.

Claudia was a fantastic guide for our inquisitive group of 4. She has vast knowledge and showed us some cool stuff that we wouldn’t have otherwise seen. Highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Andras. He is knowledgeable, genuine, and very accommodating to our interests. It’s a very comfortable 3 hour walk and learning experience so we feel to much closer to the city of Budapest. This is the kind of experience that makes us want to come back!

Theresa_B

Very well-paced and informative. Nice open discussions and very friendly. Dalma made us feel like we spent time getting to know a real Hungarian and what her life in Budapest was like.

Kathleen_N

Claudia was fantastic! She gave us a very personal, unique, & informative 3 hour tour of Budapest. We appreciated her in depth knowledge of the history of Budapest & her flexibility of requested tour sights.

Moe_M

István is very accommodating (we were supposed to meet at Hero Square but we got lost. However, István came to where we were), very knowledgeable (re: history of Hungary) and generous (he bought Chimney cake)

We booked a tour for May, after reaching out 1 week before we found out our guide was unavailable therefore we had to cancel and incurred a currency fee on our credit card as you can’t rebook for same day and time on Withlocals website. We booked with Dalma who was late as she didn’t know it would be busy on a public holiday. She showed us the main sights that you could probably see in a free walking tour, we didn’t get to see to many hidden gems, didn’t get the included treat or drink although she falsely claimed we got chimney cake. What was included was claims of nameless multinational companies wanting everyone to get diabetes, the 7 powerful families and other things you find in rabbit holes on the internet. We did get to go to a cafe and order drinks and dessert that we paid for and we also had the honour of paying for hers! At the end she sent her business card to me so that if we or our friends wanted any more tours we could bypass with locals and save money! When I reached out with locals they told me after emails were exchanged that I should reach out to Dalma as she said I was mistaken???? I pay them a fee so they deal with problem guides I thought. It’s unfortunate as I had four good experiences with this company

We had already been in Budapest for a couple of days so Claudia tailored the visit around what we hadn't yet seen. She was terrific!!

Agnes was a fantastic guide, knew everything and has a great knowledge of all kinds of historic events. She gives you options to address individual request / preferences. Can only recommend doing a tour with her.
