Nadia very nice. Very smart. Very informative! Couldn't be better.
my very knowledgeable guide Gyorgi gave me excellent insight into the communist history and legacy in Budapest. Except for the starting point, which i had read about, she showed me many communist related locations that i was not aware of and gave me the background on them. I had just finished a lengthy bicycle tour from Prague to Budapest and my legs were quite tired, so I greatly appreciated the fact that the walk started at the highest point and was all downhill or flat from there.
Background of the guides was exceptional and we liked that we could tailor the tours. While there was a small amount of overlap in the discussion of Hungarian history, it helped to cement the facts in our minds. We really like the small group experience - in fact, in the case of both our Budapest walks, they were "private" tours as we were the only two participants! Nada knew we had gone to the Terror House so we were able to incorporate what we'd learned there with pur previous readings and with her emphasis on the monuments and places we saw. We had a much deeper understanding.
