FREETOUR.com says

Our Secret Traveller joined this tour in the beautiful Hungarian capital of Budapest and quickly realised it is a "must-do" when visiting the pearl of the Danube. "The history and culture of Budapest is as fascinating and vast as the city itself, and these local guides are genuinely passionate about sharing their culture, heritage, history, and anecdotes with visitors while it is a really fun and enjoyable way to orientate yourself with the physical city, as well as it's stories. They also give great recommendations and advice for more things to do in Budapest and the best places to eat locally. Highly recommended!"
