Feel the country, guided by an enthusiastic local!
Everything that is in the description on the website is true! The bus was there on time, there was room for luggage and ... it was comfy to ride in! Our guide was just amazing. You just had to like her from the beginning. She easily connected with all the guests and really made the people see the country. Even though the weather changed between light and heavy rain during the day, she was our sunshine on this day! We can highly recommend taking this trip!

Highlight of vacation
Guide - Andi Driver - Tamas I can't offer enough praise for this experience. This was a great day. I learned, laughed and never once felt bored. Hungary is a country I knew very little about and after this drive, I was left wanting more. Thank you so much for a wonderful day!

Knowledgeable and friendly guide
Great way to learn about Hungarian food and taste authentic local specialities. We used the knowledge we gained during the rest of our trip to avoid touristy food elsewhere.

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.

Great way to get from Budapest to Vienna
This was the first Side Trip for me and my wife. Were we looking for a way to get from Budapest to Vienna and see some of the sights in between. Side Trips was the perfect choice. They met us at the pickup location with a nice minivan, tour guide, and driver. Besides me and my wife, there were 3 other guests. The minivan was very roomy and comfortable. We made 4 stops on the way to Vienna. All of these stops were to quaint little towns off the beaten path that had few tourists but were very quaint with scenic views and interesting history. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The driver seemed to be a good driver who would drop us off near a good starting point then go park somewhere until called by the guide. It was everything we were looking for. We will certainly use Side Trips again.
Budapest to Vienna One-Way Sightseeing Bus Tour
Fascinating and insightful
Ivan is a great guide - hugely knowledgable on the subject and has some fascinating stories to bring to life the cold war era as you walk around beautiful Budapest.

From the beginning, Ivan had us hooked with tales of the people involved on both sides and how the various move and counter-move activities between the East and West played out - honey-traps, bribery and general coercion tactics.

If you are interested in a unique way to explore the city, absorb the history of the cold war and how it affected Budapest whilst having genuinely interesting conversations about people and politics (including the current state of European affairs (Brexit, Orban, popularism etc.) - you'll be in good hands with Ivan.

Tourist Angel – Andrea Kevei
Imagine you are going for the first time and alone to Budapest and you find that one of your very good friends was born there and is willing to go with you and show you the sights, sounds and something of the culture of the place, then that is pretty much the the experience that you will get with Andrea Kevei. Her English is very good, her background knowledge is excellent, she asks what sort of things you think you would like to see/do, and sets up a programme to discuss and agree with you. However, she remains very flexible about arrangements throughout the time she is with you.

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.

Don’t miss this experience
This tour is a one of a kind experience using first source material. Photos and stories of Cold War Budapest as seen through the eyes of US embassy and military personnel. The material Ivan has found along with the interviews he has done will leave you with a much deeper understanding of the 1956 uprising as well as how the Russians and Americans conducted intelligence operations during the 1950s and 60s. This is truly an insider view and should not be missed.

Fabulous way to get from Budapest to Vienna off the beaten path!!
We wanted to travel from Budapest to Vienna but wanted to see more along the way than a train would have allowed. Our lovely day trip with our guide Noemi and driver Noah was the perfect solution! They were both professional and very accommodating. Noemi was well informed and happy to answer all our questions. I would recommend this trip for anyone who wants to take the road less traveled and see more along the way. It was a good value for the price!!

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.

Take this tour first!
This is the first tour you should take in Budapest. You visit a number of areas in the city. It gives you a great chance to get an overview of the city and to take note of areas that you want to explore in greater detail later in your trip.

Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and funny. She provided us with a great deal of information in an easy-going and sometimes humorous fashion.

I could not be more pleased with the experience!

A wonderful experience, new places, new friends!
We have had a wonderful trip from Budapest to Vienna with an incredible girl. She has been tireless, funny and really competent. Her enthusiasm was engaging and she showed us places that otherwise we would never have visited. We travelled with our girl, 5 years old, and it was nice for her too. Happy to have chosen this way to travel from one city to another.

Good value and engaging tour!
A great way to get from A to B with a lot of interesting history along the way. Our guide was really informative and energetic and went the extra mile to make sure we got the most out of each visit along the route. All stops were well worth seeing and I'd recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about the history and culture as well.

Do the market tour!
Great experience and you won't regret spending a day doing the course. We did the market tour first and I would thoroughly recommend it, we discovered two areas of the market we had never visited before and got lots of tasters.

My recommendation is that you plan some time in your day for a nap afterwards as we were shattered and pleasantly tipsy!

Great opportunity for a traditional Hungarian experience!
Money well spent! Andrew was so helpful and knew so much about the market. He literally showed us everything there was and answered all questions we had with great knowledge of the food there.
The food was delicious and there were many new surprising experiences that we tried.
We thoroughly enjoyed it!
Thank you Andrew,
Kevin and Siobhan.

Even if I am not an expert or very enthusiastic about the topic, I really enjoyed this tour. Why? Because, opposite to what happens in most of the tours, I didn't just hear a general story but a bunch of incredible spy stories in the locations they took place. The guide is also very friendly and you can see how passionate he is about the topic.

Fantastic
I'm sorry I cannot remember the young guides name but she was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her country. We were one of the first tours she had taken on this trip She could answer all questions. We went to a small city that had a fort and an area with many different types of architecture but it could have been left off the tour.
