Great all round!
We booked 3 walking tours with Budapest Urban Walks.
Our 3 guides (Reka, Ferenc & Raymond) were excellent and had their individual strengths which suited each tour.
The Street Food tour was some fun with a wide variety of dishes from different nationalities. Ferenc knew his local food haunts and he took us to some of his favourite places, which included trying some Hungarian favourite dishes.
Raymond (Budapest Urban Walk) was young, enthusiastic and knew his history well, and told us some interesting information and stories about various historical characters.
Reka (on the Fools & Kings tour) took us around the castle area of Buda. We enjoyed her company and found her to be very friendly and personable. She asked us what sort of things we are interested in (history, architecture, culture etc) and aimed our tour at our interests. Reka is a delight.
Most of my correspondence was with Reka and she could not have been any more helpful, offering their help with anything during our stay. I felt like they “had our back” while we were in Budapest.
Reka also made an anniversary dinner reservation for us, as well as providing a welcomed list of other suggestions.
What I really appreciated was that they accepted our bookings on the small group tours, and only charged these prices even though we ended up having private tours (as no one else had booked the same tours on the same days). Not all companies do this!
I recommend this company for their excellent customer service and great local knowledge.
