It would be amazing to have a reading list related to each city, especially relating to different chapters of its history in a wider context (ie not just the city itself, but the country and the international context).
Edina was the perfect guide for this tour. Wonderful background and fun personality! You would be lucky to get her.
Edina was a wonderful guide and educated us about a Budapest and Hungary through the lens of architecture! We loved also the little captured of inner courtyards and the pastry review. It was delightful!
