We learned so much
We were picked up at our hotel by Alex, a very courteous and informative tour guide. He answered all our questions and didn't overwhelm us with info and we learned so Much!!! Interesting was the fact his grandparents had lived thru the Holocaust, some in the ghetto and some in hiding. We visited the synagogue and gardens, the ghetto, parliament and also the Shoes on the Danube monument. I would highly recommend this tour as part of your Budapest trip.

Amazing Tour With Patricia
What an incredible tour with a fabulous tour guide, Patricia. The information provided was outstanding. We extended our tour with Patricia for an extra hour and a half, and saw the Jewish Quarter in depth. Patricia went above and beyond, pointing out places of interest in a knowledgeable and humorous way.
I would highly recommend this tour.
Private Grand Tour of Jewish Budapest
Excellent
Although it took some time to locate the group who were joining our walking tour, once we got going it was very good, with Borsca a knowledgeable guide. First the museum, with a good outline of Jewish traditions and holidays, and then the Great Synagogue. The cemetery and gardens are a reminder of a dark period of history which must never be forgotten. As part of the Grand Tour, we then walked through the Jewish Quarter, now home to many trendy cafes and bars, a beautiful Art Nouveau Synagogue, finishing up with cake. Highly recommended.
Private Grand Tour of Jewish Budapest
Wonderful tour with great guide
We did the Jewish Grand Tour with Petra. She was fabulous, and the tour was great. I was initially concerned as Petra is not Jewish (although her great-grandfather (I think) was), but she was very knowledgeable about the area and the history of the Jews in Budapest and Hungary. Petra was engaging and had a good sense of humor (only when appropriate). I am very glad I had the opportunity to see the Dohany Synagogue and the other parts of the complex.. I was particularly moved by the Weeping Willow (Holocaust) memorial. The Museum was interesting -note that Petra was not our guide on this part of the tour but turned us over to a Museum guide who was quite good. We also went to an Orthodox synagogue, which was beautiful and interesting. In addition to being a great guide, Petra gave us advice about what else to see in Budapest, which was quite helpful. I highly recommend the Grand Tour and Petra.

Fun
Andrea was a well-informed, kind and engaging guide. And she kept bringing us chocolate! We went in a small group and it was a delightful way to see the museum and find out about the history of chocolate in Budapest. It was well worth the jaunt out of the city center. It was more fun than either I or my daughter imagined.

Great introduction to Budapest! 'Ruins and Bars' and 'Budapest Urban Walk'
My husband, and me booked two tours with Urban walks -Ruins and Bars, and Budapest Urban Walk. By coincidence we were the only ones taking the group tours on that day so it was like a private tour! We really appreciate that Urban Walks did not charge us extra and still gave us a great time. The pick ups, the drop off, schedules, etc went so smoothly.These walks were definitely the highlight of our trip!
Reka was our guide for the Budapest Urban Walk. She is so passionate about her city. She gave us a wonderful insight into the history of Budapest, also told us a lot of fun titbits. We had an amazing coffee and pastry stop in between the tour We went back there twice!). Before we knew it 4 hours were up! We were sad to see her go! Also Reka gave us recommendations to superb restaurants, cafes, even baths (we did gellert) and cruises (legenda evening cruise). It's like she had our back throughout the trip.
Our guide for the Ruins and Bars tour was Andrew. He was so much fun and easy to be with. He took us to unique bars that only a local would know. We had amazing crafted beers, liquors, food (must try Langos) and conversation! Egeszegedre!
If anyone is looking for these kind of activities in Budapest just go with Urban Walks blindly, they are simply the best!

Private Grand Tour of Jewish Budapest
Spectacular venue hosts excellent concert.
The basilica was truly magnificent and the acoustics for the concert were excellent, far exceeding our expectations. The organ pieces, while very good on their own, were enhanced by the beauty of the basilica. We had a great time and would recommend this concert.

Great tour!
We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide provided a lot of historical context and we visited unique spots around the city that we wouldn’t have come across on our own. We also tasted a variety of items, which was great as I was expecting similar pastries throughout the tour. I would definitely recommend!
Budapest Urban Treats: Coffee and Dessert Tour
Most interesting, professional and exciting tour!
We had this Budapest tour and within these hours we actually not only saw all the tourist attractions, but we also heard a lot of history and understanding this amazing city, and got a wholesome Hungarian experience.
Also Reka gave us tips for dinning and further walks.
We recommend this tour, and people with all our heart.
Thank you, wonderful Reka and thanks Ferenc Samu for your special attention.
We look forward to taking more tours with you.

Holiday concert in sacred setting
Organ Concert at St. Stephen's Basilica in Budapest
Great night out for a short break in Budapest!
I recommend going in summer when it’s busier because we did the tour in mid October and we were the only 2 to be there! But despite this we got a very personal tour of the Budapest nightlife which was fantastic! We got free shots at every place we went and the places are amazing, especially the ruin bars. Evelin was a great host and for €15 you get a great deal :) recommend for anyone wanting to get a feel for the nightlife!

Epic Bar Tour Budapest
Quality Night Out
A truly EPIC night out. This was our first night in Budapest for a lads holiday. 4 bars and a club covered off, with lots of variety in locations and what was on offer.
Evelin and her team really looked after us and gave lots of recommendations for other things to do throughout our stay.
A must for anyone having a weekend away in Budapest
Epic Bar Tour Budapest
Such a great night! Highly recommend
We were visiting and didn't have a clue about Budapest nightlife so our guide Evelin and the Epic nights team organised a fabulous hen party bar crawl. We visited ruin bars, local spots and karaoke bars, got to skip the ques and got shots everywhere we went. Evelin from Epic nights was an absolute babe and great company on our night out! We were all really happy with the night and as a result quite hungover in the morning - thank you!! X

A most inspiring experience
We enjoyed the Gala Concert vert much - it was a fantastic introduction to some more of the great Hungarian music that expected us in Buidapest.
Budapest Gala Concert
Hungarian Concert Gala experience
The Gala concert was everything that I hoped it to be. First off it is in a spectacular setting - worth a visit on its own. The music and dance covered a lot of musical territory and was I very impressed by the performers It was a wonderful evening out.
Budapest Gala Concert
Bad experience
I was told to be at the meeting point at 11pm and I arrived 10 minutes before and no one appear I waited 10min more and the decided to go to the side of the river and they told me the boat set at 10:30pm. I didn't receive any email telling me to be there at 10:30pm.
Danube Party Cruise in Budapest
Great atmosphere
Drinks were awful, the alcohol was of bad quality and prices too high. Moreover, we had to queue during 20 minutes to take a drink because they had not enough people to serve. Otherwise, the ambiance was awesome and the view of Budapest at night beautiful. The cruise lasted enough time.
