Coming to Hungary?
Strange place, I must say, with a strange language and even stranger people. A place where I'd typically recommend a friend or a guide to take you around.
Why, you might ask, and my answer would be a true story: Last week I met a Saudi couple. They came to BP and before they met me this is how their day looked like: arrival by car from Vienna (50$), booking a hotel for 3 nights (1000$), upgrading the room (100$), having lunch and dinner (200$). We met that night and decided to spend the next day together: Heroes Square Tour (0$), Kunsthalle (18$), Széchenyi Spa (40$), Aquincum Roman Ruins (15$), a great local lunch with wine (50$).
Now, You do the Math!
If you want to avoid tourist traps AND have as many authentic experiences in Hungary as possible, it would be my pleasure to let you do just that!
Will you go on your own or will you accept my help?
It's up to you! :)

Marcel was a great host and became in our opinion a gerat Ambassador for his City of Budapest . He planned an itinerary for us the moning of our tour as we had just gotten off a Viking river cruisa and had visited most of the highlights of the City. He planned a tour that took us to places we would never have had the time or knowledge to visit. Our 8 hour tour was filled with lots of laughter and great h]istorical knowledge. We took the metro system to discover most all of our destinations and we felt that we were shown how the locals spend their pastime in this city. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who would like to be shown Budapest in an efficient and fun loving way.3 months ago
We had such a great time with Marcell. He provided all we had requested and so much more. His passion and knowledge of Hungarian history helped us appreciate the city so much more than had we been with a group or just a “tour guide”. Couldn’t imagine our trip without his incredible insight.6 months ago
Marcell is an excellent tour guide. Our group of four seniors highly recommends him. His is knowledgeable, kind, patient, helpful and very informative. He is respectful of the pace you want to keep and the sites you want to see - flexible/adaptable and creative. He will not disappoint! Andrew, Carol Sandy and Lynda.11 months ago
