Fun and informative tour around some of Budapest’s main attractions. Heavy traffic prevented us from going to Heroes’ Square (no fault of the tour company at all), but at all other destinations interesting and useful information was shared - and the air conditioned bus was a lovely touch as well. Was particularly useful as we went on the tour early into our trip, which helped settle us into the city and get a better idea of our surroundings. Highly recommend!

This tour was a great overview of what Budapest has to offer. Our guide was Dorothy, who was fantastic. She was very sweet and knew a lot about the history of the city and each of the sights. She also gave us great restaurant recommendations and even offered to walk us there if we needed help getting there.

However, one thing to keep in mind is that this tour is mainly on the bus, meaning that you only get off of the bus 2-3 times. This tour is a great tour to do on your first day in the city so that you can figure out which sights you would like to spend more time at later on. I would highly recommend this tour.

Well worth doing. Mini bus tour stopping at the main destinations over in the Buda side and then hero’s square in Pest. Guide very friendly. Not too much walking. Only four of us, another couple too who were nice to share the trip with. For the money great value especially when you are on a 48 hour trip like us and want to squeeze as much in as possible

What a great way to get a feel for this beautiful city! We were a group of 14 spending 3 nights in Budapest, not easy to marshall so many people so booking this tour was a great idea. The very enthusiastic Atilla was a wonderful guide; charming, funny and knowledgeable his enthusiasm for the history and architecture was infectious. Would definitely recommend taking Cityrama tour!!

Andi (Andrea) was an outstanding tour guide for our group of 8 English-speakers. She managed the time well so that we saw even more sights than advertised. She has a great personality and made us feel welcome in the City. By chance, we ran into her the next day and she gave us some free tips on some of her favorite attractions. Glad to see the tourist industry is reviving. Highly recommend this tour and this guide.

The 3 hour city tour with Attila was a fantastic experience. He is funny, informative and charming. We were picked up at our hotel and started the tour in nearby Heroes Square. He explained the history of Hungary, its kings and its wars.
We then drove down the Champs des Elysees of Hungary, Andrassy Avenue, as he explained the yellow line and the sights and squares we passed. Our next stop was the Matthias Church on the Buda side of the river. We had about an hour to see the magnificent Cathedral and shops nearby. Then up the hill to the Citadella and its panoramic views of the city and the Danube. We also saw the synagogue and city center. This was a morning very well spent. We feel ready to travel on our own now.

This is a wonderful tour if you are in a rush to hit some important sights in the city. We were served by Attila, a knowledgeable guy with a lovely sense of humour!

The only down side to this tour is that you don't have enough time to explore.

Do read the timings carefully. You need to be there half an hour prior to the beginning of the tour.

The company was very accommodating; when I mistakenly arrived late, they helped me make it to the tour.

Attila, our guide was funny and knowledgable about the city and hungarian history. The tour took us to all the important spots and Attila gave us instructions on the trams and buses if we wished to learn more about the carious sites. The tour was well priced and worth every penny. Budapest is a city everybody would appreciate visiting.

Not particularly fond of tours, but my wife really wanted this one, so willing to give it a try. Glad I did. Our tour guide, Attila, was great. With a sense of humor and a great understanding of the history and significance of every where went, we both enjoyed the tour. Toward the end of the tour he talked a little about WW I. As people then toured the area, Hero's Square, I asked Attila many questions about the topic, and he took the time to answer them all, which means he stayed longer when he could have left. Appreciated much.
