A Recent Review of this tour

Rita's extensive knowledge of the city's history as well as current developments meant we received an excellent overview of Budapest. The mix of walking the streets and catching public transport (including the fantastic old tube line) gave us a feel of being a local while continually learning about the interesting evolution of one of great cities of the world. Without a true local like Rita we would not have had the truly excellent experience that we did.
