Submersion in European history and art through the tour of beautiful Budapest - unique experience!
Aug 2020
I have signed my 14 year-old daughter and her same age friend up for this tour as a fun end-of-summer activity. Miklós has taken them on this half day introduction to Budapest tour via walking and public transportation. The girls were thoroughly entertained (and received excellent physical exercise through walking!). Miklós managed to show them several hidden gems of the city and make it an entertaining while extremely educational half day. He taught them about the different architectural styles as well as Hungarian history and the history of this beautiful city. Miklós - as I learned - has been a university professor during his professional years , including spending time at one of the best US universities as guest lecturer, with a waste knowledge of history, art history and literature. His English is impeccable. Indeed this was a unique experience for the two girls. Highly recommended!

Thank you for your feedback. Highly appreciated. This age group was a real challenge, so I am quite pleased that they reacted positively. Your nice words give Fungarian more credit to label our tours as an educational experience. My bon mot for the young ladies was: Budapest is an open-air textbook. They seem to have appreciated it.

Budapest in a Nutshell
Dec 2019 • Friends
First of all, we have to mention that our guide, Miklós, was wonderful. He is so accommodating, knowledgeable and funny! We felt comfortable interacting with him right from the beginning.

He paced and customised the tour so well and provided us with not only the necessary information and materials such as guide books and maps to help us with getting around, he also bought us local treats to try out!

The tour itself was truly worth taking up. On top of learning how to make use of the many different types of public transport to get around, we gained a much better idea on how to spend our 3 days in Budapest ftuitfully.

It was a fun experience hopping on and off the different transportation like the locals, worry free, and learning more about things that we came across. Anothee advantage of the tour being in the local's perspective, we quickly learnt what we should and should not do in Budapest. Definitely a good way to be introduced to Budapest for the first time!

Dear Juliana, Thank you for your enthusiastic words. I am most pleased to hear that you found the tour structure including several means local public transport enjoyable. It was a good idea to start your visit with this tour and thus I could save you time and energy on sorting things out in an unknown environment where even the language is a culture shock. Cheers, Miklós and the Fungarian Team

More than just a tourist tour
Miklos was our guide today and it was a memorable tour with someone who was deeply devoted to enhancing our travel experience.

He really did care about what we wanted to learn and what we wanted to see. He didn't waste our time taking us to just every average tourist place. We shared sausage with him from the marketplace and it was so enjoyable.

He has a great sense of humour and loves to laugh. We teased him about the Budapest London Eye and it was a shared funny moment. I cannot say enough good about the whole travel experience with this Fungarian.

A MUST!!
Mar 2018 • Couples
My wife and I traveled to Budapest and had preordered this excursion as the first event. It was the best decision we could have made. We love to explore the cities we visit outside of the tourist areas as much as possible. This transit tour gave us the ability and confidence to navigate the transit system all around the city. Miklos was an astounding host. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to explore Budapest on their own.
