A Recent Review of this tour

We were a little concerned setting this up over the net without really knowing who and what we were getting into. Our concerns dissolved when Rashad walked into our hotel lobby to greet us exactly on time. Our 8 1/2 hour tour was great. His historical knowledge of Budapest and Hungary was incredible. He did everything advertised for the tour and besides that is a very nice person. We loved Budapest and Hungary and will be returning again - next time will book two days with him.
