Adam is bright, energetic, personable and knowledgeable, and it was like I was taking a tour with a good friend. Adam is not a 'clock watcher', and we saw everything (and more) that I asked to see. In addition to his own considerable knowledge, Adam shared stories about his parent's fascinating experiences during this period. I feel very fortunate to have been able to learn more about this important event in Hungary's history in Adam's company. Book with confidence!

We were left puzzled by this tour. we have since found out we saw very little of interest at the castle, and we took so long wandering about up there on a very hot day, hearing the same myths and strange stories that we didn't get to see everything we paid for. Our visit to st Stephens church was plain boring as he talked at us, telling us the silliest stories, as if we were a couple of idiots. Adam offered to take us another time, but we were not interested in wasting any more time with him.

Unbelievably professional tour guide. He really knows the city and his background of the history of Budapest and Hungary is outstanding. He went out of his way to modify the tour to meet our needs and took us to places we didn't know existed. Best of all, he took us to a "locals" restaurant and it was great. Can't say enough good things about Adam.

My Mother and I visited Budapest for the anniversary of the 1956 Revolution. My Father, now passed away, participated as a young man and went into exile, never to return. As such, it was emotional for us. Adam was outstanding, showing us sites relating to these events. With a deep understanding of the matter he candidly shared his own thoughts, feelings and experiences of growing up in a Communist regime. Full of enthusiasm, passionate about his profession, I would recommend him wholeheartedly. Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Paul. It was nice to guide you around the sites of the revolution just in the days of its 60th anniversary. It was a very interesting tour for me as we could compare the experiences of our parents who were participants of the event but then your father was forced to leave the country. I felt an honor that you chose me as your tour guide. Take care, Adam

For example, the day of our tour, the weather was absolutely awful and it could easily have ruined our time in Budapest.

Adam was remarkably knowledgeable about Hungarian history and his interest in art history added particular insight to many of the religious and historical paintings. His own family history of involvement with the various regimes of the mid-20th century were also fascinating. We covered a lot of ground during my half day with Adam and I felt that I had a very good grasp of the essentials of Hungarian history by the end. He was also very thoughtful about food, water, and toilet stops!.

Adam was a very tour guide - very passionate about his subject and very generous with his time. I'm surprised more people don't do this tour - it is fascinating as much because it wasn't taught in schools for a long time and many Hungarians remained ashamed they had gone along with a newer softer communism after 1956. The reality is, their sacrifices helped pave the way for the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989.

His description of events coupled with the on location experience made history come alive. It was richly rewarding to spend time with him. We were so fortunate to have him as a guide and teacher.

We took the 1956 Revolution tour which I would have to rate at 5 stars. I found it very informative and the explanation of the landmarks and what happened at each place was fantastic. He also brings a lot to the table in terms of his family's stories. At the end of the day we also went to see the national gallery which was fantastic as Adam truly knows and loves art. His knowledge of Italian art is very impressive.
