    Richard was flexible, informative, and entertaining as he lead eight of us on a 4 hour private tour. We had proposed an ambitious tour through the Jewish Quarters to City Park and back. However, as we approached City Park and began to flag, he adjusted our plan so that instead of walking back to the hotel we took the underground, which he had told use we should experience, back to city center and closer to our Hotel. Our party peppered Richard with questions and discussions about how Budapest compared to other cities, the origins of the Hungarian language and the Ottoman influences on Budapest. As a history teacher Richard kept the conversation going with interesting insights. We had a physicist amongst use who was ecstatic to hear that Edward Teller went to High School nearby and oohed and awed over the plague on the school listing other Noble laureate scientists who attended the school. Richard knew all the names and the history of the school and scientists. As usual with Viator, arranging the tour, communicating with Richard before hand to customize the tour and meeting up with and being dropped off at the hotel went smoothly and easily.

    Richard took us around town as though we were visiting family. He made the history, [people and life of Hungry and Budapest come alive. He was patient with all our questions and genuinely interested in what we wished to learn rather than follow a scripted tour- can see why it is city 'unscripted'. Richard- thank you! You were amazing. Our 13 and 15 year old loved this as well and were touched by your stories and history. We certainly got to feel and experience the heart beat of this amazing city. THANK YOU!

    What a spectacular way to experience Budapest! Richard was so knowledgable and he was so patient with all our questions. He navigated the tour on what we were interested in and what we were asking questions about. He was interested n what we wanted to learn about the city rather than just giving us a spell. He chatted to us about life, history and behind the scenes peaks of this amazing country of Hungry and city of Budapest. he made it all come alive, its people and culture so we felt a part of it. It was like being shown around town by your older brothers best friend. THANK YOU RICHARD! We had truely an amazing day!
