Balint was kind, charming and supremely knowledgeable on all things Hungary & Budapest. Clean vehicle, good driving. Unlike many guides, he didn't drone on endlessly but rather was receptive to our interests and engaged us in conversations rather than lectures.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating, Norma! It was a fun day together and I enjoyed our conversations as much as you did! It was great to have you here in Budapest and I hope to see you again!! Ciao, Balint

During this half-day tour to nearby Szentendre, we passed the Roman ruins and Soviet Block housing en route to this picturesque village with wonderful shops, street artists, and eateries. We visited Margit Kovacs sculptures and a fascinating microscopic art museum. We sampled a langos—a Hungarian specialty consisting of fried dough brushed with garlic butter, topped with sour cream. We took 3 tours with Balint--ALL AMAZING! He made Budapest come alive with his knowledge of Hungarian history & culture A+++
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Therese, thank you so much for your time and effort writing such an excellent, detailed review of our tour! It will be very helpful for visitors planning their trips. It was my greatest pleasure spending 3 days with you and I look forward to welcoming you again in Hungary! Fondly, Balint

Balint was the perfect tour guide. It was evident from first meeting him that he is passionate about his job and his country. Balint is exceptionally personable yet professional. We highly recommend Balint, and he will be our only choice when returnting to Budapest.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jim, thank you so much for your rating! I'm so glad you enjoyed Szentendre! You are right, I like that town a lot and it's so great that you wanted to see something off of the beaten tracks of Budapest! Enjoy the rest of your stay in Hungary! I hope to see you again in Budapest! Warm Regards, Balint
I found the tour to be interesting but due to having restricted mobility I don't think I could take full advantage of what was on offer. Appreciate our tour guide having a plan B and taking us for a ride through the mountains to appreciate the autumn colours on our return to the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: John, I truly wish you a full recovery from your knee problem! I know how bad it feels to be restricted by a physical issue. I'm glad on the other hand that we had such nice weather (thank you for bringing it with you from Australia!) and that we could add a little extra ride in the mountains instead of walking. Warm regards, Balint
