It was very informative tour. We learned so many interesting facts about Budapest and its history. Our guide was very nice and well knowledge. With help of our guide we saw so many tiny details that we wouldn’t notice by ourselves or wouldn’t know what they mean. We went through main squares of Pest side and learned about building and streets. I would strongly recommend to take this tour!
