“Well worth purchasing.”
Reviewed by Neil from Eastbourne, United Kingdom on December 23rd, 2012
Great card to have to enable you to have a hassle free tour of the city. It also intitles you to many discounts to attractions and restaurants . The card was waiting for me on arrival at my hotel which was brilliant as it saved time collecting it from the tour company.

“Walking tours of Budapest”
Reviewed by Jayne from Flitwick, United Kingdom on November 12th, 2012
I thought the walking tour guide was excellent very knowledgeable and her English was very good. This enabled us to see the sights we should not miss. The guide also pointed us in the direction of some good traditional restaurants reasonably priced. In all we were very impressed.
