Gabor was the best Budapest guide anyone could ask for!! Technically competent, explained and showed me a lot. Above all, good recommendations given. Since it was Monday morning, I was lucky enough to be the only one registered for this tour. Nevertheless, Gabor carried out the full program!! It doesn't get any more perfect!!!

We had a very interesting and entertaining city tour of Budapest for almost 3 hours (although only 2.5 hours booked) with guide Gabor Glasner. He is well versed in the German language and had considerable knowledge of the history of Hungarian history and in particular the history of Budapest. Due to his entertaining and humorous nature, the city tour was never lengthy, despite the length. We can warmly recommend Mr. Glasner as a guide. We enjoyed this tour.

A very nice and knowledgeable city guide gave us a very clear overview of the rich Hungarian history and showed and introduced the most important sights of the city center and the Jewish Quarter. He also gave us further tips and suggestions as to what else we can see or do or where we can find good restaurants. All of our in-depth or further questions were answered comprehensively and competently. Overall highly recommended. :)
