Budapest: 3-Hour Live Guided Sightseeing Tour
- Duration: 3 hours
On arrival we were met in the tourist office by 3 of the most sullen girls I’ve ever come across. Not good as the first impression can make or break the whole day. A smile and pleasant manner go a long way. However, the tour was excellent as was Robert our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Hungarian history. The mini bus was comfortable and warm, which was great as it was a chilly day. Would recommend this activity when in Budapest. Just go straight on the bus though not via the tourist office.
Tour took us to some great spots, but it was a lot shorter and involved a lot less than I thought. I thought it was going to entail a lot more walking and talking, but it was more driving. Still got to see great stuff, but not really what I thought I was signing up for :\
Greg was a great guide who provided lots of historical knowledge and general info but made it interesting. He also had a wicked sense of humour. Only 4 on our trip so it was like a private tour of the city. Really enjoyed the places we visited and the weather made it.
This is a great way to get an introduction to Budapest which you can learn about the capital’s history and enjoy the beautiful views. The stops in Pest are long enough to give one a “sample” to decide where to come back for a longer period.
Very nice tour with many interesting facts from very skilled guide. If you are coming for 2-3 days to Budapest, take it as a first thing you will do to orient yourself in the city. Many thanks to Gregory, he was a great guide!
