All the musts with the best extras!

The capital of Hungary is worth a full day tour! Besides all the World Heritage sites, we visit not-so-touristic, but equally beautiful places and amazing buildings in Budapest.
Do you know, where the first subway in the Europien continent is? Which is the second biggest Synagogue in the world? Who gave Budapest Zoo the first giraffe? Where and when was first gas light used in Europe at a construction-site? And what is the real Hungarian Goulash soup like? You will know the answers and many more if you visit Budapest with me!

A Recent Review of this tour

We were so lucky to have Kathy as our guide. Not only was she so knowledgeable but also very flexible with our difficult schedule We would have liked Budapest without a tour but Kathy made us love it. We cannot recommend Kathy highly enough Five stars or Six if we could give them!!!!
