    The tour with Daniel was excellent. His degree in history and international relations led to an incredibly informative and engaging tour of the Buda castle area. We covered so many subjects and this was like a brief history of Hungary condensed into a very easily digestible 3 hours. We had a drinks break half way through (included) and admission to St Matthias Church as part of the tour. Lots of local tips and so much interesting information was given. If you’re at all interested in the history of Hungary and Budapest then I absolutely recommend this tour.

    Our guide was Daniel and he was extremely knowledgeable in the history and politics of Hungary. Conversation was easy and he told us stories that you wouldn't find in textbooks or on the Internet. No topics were out of bounds, super interesting. Probably the best 3 hours I've spent in Budapest :) he took us around the castle district we even went into the The Hilton hotel and in the wine cellar! Absolutely worth it!
