    The tour was amazing and the guide is a 5 stars person. István is such a nice, well humoured and kind guy! You can ask him openly about whatever you want, because he knows so much about the city and the history behind it and he is happy to guide and answer you! We made the tour in the day after of our arrival, so this helped us so much! Thanks to him, after the tour, we could travel around the city like if we were from there, because he covered a large area and he can help you in how to reach other points of Budapest easily and fast. With this tour, you look to the buildings and monuments, main avenues and squares with other eyes and perspectives, because he teaches you about the meanings and hidden facts about them. You will learn so much and you will start to understand that every corner of the city could have some reason to be there or to have been built. This is a very rich tour in terms of knowledge, history and facts and we totally recommend you! We are so happy about our choice and to had the opportunity to know István and to know the city by his eyes!

    I can highly recommend the tour with István!
    It was a perfect start for our stay in Budapest, he showed us the main sights of Pest with very informative, but never boring stories.
    Thank you also for your recommendations of restaurants and pubs!

    We highly recommend the Phest tour with Ishtvan! He was wonderful, knowledgeable, nice and funny. We wish he also guided a tour to Buda side as we took it with another company and u just can’t compare. Ishtvan is the best.

    What comprises of a great tour?

    First, of course, the place, and you could never go wrong with Germany, specifically Berlin. It’s amazing!

    Second, the tour organization. The guide, services, and performance. In this tour, our guide Istvan is satisfactory. He’s informative, fun, and compliant.

    Third and definitely not the least, THE SIDE TRIPS. Trying the local specialties. Food, drinks, products and services, and interacting with the locals. It was honestly a worthy one.

    Therefore, this tour is reasonable and recommending! That’s it!

    Berlin is such a classy place. The historic features of each landmarks embodies an extraordinary history that will give you goosebumps but that won’t be possible without an excellent guide to lead a worthy tour like this one. Istvan headed our Budapest All-around City Tour with the right amount of seriousness and fun. Perfectly balance so it was pretty cool.

    We enjoy it in general so we will totally recommend this tour!

    Before our guide started sharing some interesting information about the places we visited through this tour, I was already amazed by how it looks but I was more amazed by how deep the city’s history was. Great stories from Istvan really made me love the city more. It was an enjoyable tour because aside from the beautiful sites and great histories there were a lot of choices for food and drinks and we are torn which to try first, good thing that many of them are inexpensive so more we didn’t to choose much. Fun tour and really informative. Berlin has my heart now. Thanks to this Budapest All-around City Tour. Really unforgettable.
