We did the Downtown Pest tour with Andras a few days ago. He is extremely articulate and knowledgeable. And very flexible–he will tailor the tour to your particular interests. This was a great introduction to Budapest, its history and politics. Andras even took us on the metro for part of the tour and taught us how to get a pass, etc. If you like scholarly, in-depth tours, then you will like Insight Cities tours. Highly recommend Andras and Insight Cities tours.

The best way to see and get immersed in the culture and history of this city is with a local historical guide that lives here.
Veronika was amazing! This was the second tour we took with Veronika (she also gave us a tour of Communist Budapest), and on both occasions she was extremely knowledgable, kind and well informed . She shared tremendous insight and knowledge about Budapest’s history, was very well organized, thoughtful and even took us to fascinating places like an archeological dig or gallery we would not have found on our own. We were so grateful to have taken these tours with Veronika. They were the highlight of our trip!
After engaging Insight Cities for unforgettable tours in Vienna and Prague, we ended our trip with 2 more from the company. After 5 tours, we can easily recommend this company. The guides are superb. Hope to see them in more cities in the future.
We took the “Downtown Pest: The New Imperial Capital” tour with Andras, who was very knowledgeable and full of wonderful anecdotes about his experiences growing up in Budapest. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in actually learning about the city from a local who is full of knowledge and insight. Definitely bring your camera and your curiosity!
