Spies & Masters: Cold War Tour of Budapest
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.

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.

Great way to explore a different side of Budapest
The hike with Laszlo was a fantastic break from the usual tourist activities, seeing the nature and forest around Budapest and being very much off the normal hiking trail. Laszlo has really good knowledge of the area as well as Budapest and Hungary generally and was an absolute pleasure to walk with.
We got some great views of the city from above and overall the hike was wonderful (even if it was very cold!). Thanks Laszlo!

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.

Wonderful Day in Budapest
We thoroughly enjoyed our private walking tour of Budapest last Sunday. The weather was perfect and our guide, Odea, could not have been better. Even though she is not originally from Hungary, her knowledge of the history and culture was amazing. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to experience Budapest in depth.

101 things to see in Budapest- a must do!!
Reka was a fabulous tour guide! She knows Budapest inside and out. She showed us sights we had read about and many that we hadn't heard of. She has a through understanding of Budapest history and the ability to make it come alive. Touring the city with her was very enjoyable. Even her dinner recommendations were spot on.

I found the tour historically accurate and extremely engaging. Ivan knows how to tell stories. You'll laugh, you'll think, you'll be amazed by normal people who stood up for their beliefs during difficult times and you'll feel pity for the ones forced to sell out in order to survive

Wonderful hike with a wonderful guide!
We loved our day hiking with Lazlo. He was a wealth of knowledge about Hungarian history, and he clearly loves hiking the hills of Budapest. I would highly recommend spending as much time with Lazlo as you can while you are visiting Budapest!
