    Hi Richard It has been a true pleasure having the walking tour with you a few days ago. We learnt alot and your explanation of how to get around both cities has helped us see a great deal more than we thought we would. Again you were magnificent and a true pleasure to be with on the day. Even the rain could not dampen the experience. Kindest Regards Connie Colosimo

    I had booked a short tour on Buddapest's Jewish and Ottoman culture with City Unscripted and I was impressed with the way the team handled this tour. They were very professional and quick to respond. The host they had selected for me, Krisztián, was very informative, friendly and helpful. He had planned the trip very well and in detail. He even managed to cover some tour spots which most of the local guides do not even mention e.g. Gül Baba's tomb, a short but steep walk from the Margaret Bridge (thanks for the work out Krisztián!). He also recommended a few very nice local eateries/restaurants. This tour really set the tone for my travels thereon. Many thanks to the team of City Unscripted and the host Krisztián.

    This was our first time in Budapest, so we hired a guide for our first full day, deciding to concentrate on the Pest side with a 6hr guided walk..a very good decision as it gave a good orientation of the city and invaluable local knowledge.
