A customized trip with Nicholas

I contacted Nick to customize the "Introduction to Budapest" tour. Namely, I needed a later start time due to my flight arrival. He replied back immediately, was able to accommodate my requests, along with some great suggestions of what we could add to the tour.

For the tour itself, we ended up doing at night with the city all lit up.... Wow! Just breathtaking! From secret historical spots (literally), street art, ruin bars, local pubs, street food stops, the subway, buses, trams, parks, bridges, monuments.... we literally saw everything and more I wanted to cover in 4 hours. Throughout the tour, Nick was extremely knowledgable and passionate while explaining his country's history and current status - always taking the time to answer my questions and providing suggestions on where else I should see / eat during my time in Budapest. I thoroughly enjoyed Nick's custom tour and highly recommend him to all!

The Best of Budapest with a Local

We only had a short day to spend in Budapest and we knew it would be tough seeing everything with the kids (12, 14), so we arranged a tour with Claudia. It was lovely! Got a taste of both Buda and Pest, heard details of the history and architecture and all at a pace that was right for us and the kids.

There are other more convenient ways of sightseeing in Budapest. You can have an authentic Trabant sightseeing tour in Budapest. Traveling in a Trabant is really special because it was the most popular car in in the Communist Era. To hear the engine of these old cars that gradually found their ways into the hearts of locals is among the most unique experiences you can find while sightseeing in Budapest.

When you are a bit tired of constant sightseeing in Budapest, join one of the local hosts for a dinner, with traditional Hungarian, or fusion-style meal. Usually, some good quality, traditional beverages are included too, such as wine or pálinka. After a great cozy meal, you will have enough energy to continue your day.
