Excellent. The guide was very informative and funny, the group wasn’t too big so everything could be heard and see. All round cool and fun experience. It provided us with a welcome break from the bustling crowds around all the major tour sites. The short tour I felt like was long enough to still enjoy it and learn something. Would 100% recommend.

Great to walk under the city and hear the story. We had a prettig big group which made it more difficult the hear/understand the guide fully. She did a great job and had a fun delivery of the story.

The guide was very nice and we learned a lot of new things about the history of Budapest together with the influence of said history on the present, so a very educational tour.

Brilliant tour guide and very interesting history of not only the caves by the history of the whole city! Definitely recommend

Lázlo was a fantastic guide. Nice to have a substantial tour lasting 1.5 hours with good information!
