Top score from us! Enthusiastic and knowledgeable, Vicky was a delight to be around from beginning to end. The tour was filled with interesting anecdotes and fascinating historical facts. If you only have a day or two to spend in Budapest, opt for the Buda Castle cave tour, you will not be disappointed.

Η εμπειρία αξίζει στο ΜΕΓΙΣΤΟ!! Ανακαλύπτεις κάποια χιλιόμετρα από τις υπόγειες σπηλιές της Βουδαπέστης με την εξαιρετική βοήθεια της ξεναγού, η οποία ήταν πολύ ευγενική, χαμογελαστή και πλήρως επεξηγηματική. Είναι μια ευκαιρία να δεις την υπόγεια Βουδαπέστη και να μάθεις για την περίοδο του πολέμου (κρυψώνες, επιβίωση, κτλ). Ήμασταν τυχεροί, γιατί η ξενάγησή μας έγινε τον Δεκέμβριο του 2021 με αποτέλεσμα να είμαστε λίγα άτομα (5 συγκεκριμένα) και ήταν ακόμα πιο βολικό!! Το συστήνω ανεπιφύλακτα!! Τρομερή εμπειρία!! (όχι για κλειστοφοβικούς)
