Greta is a wealth of information-from the history of Budapest to current political winds and culture. We learned a lot
Levi was great, full of enthusiasm and chock full of fascinating historical and political details. It was a wonderful tour. The only suggestion I would make would be to make the narrative and temporal thread a little clearer across the tour, perhaps by primarily talking about one time period in each location. So start at the church, for example, and just talk about King Stefan. Then go someplace else to talk about the next period, working forward through time.
The tour was greatly informative and timely, and completely expanded our understanding of Hungary and the current political situation.
