Does anyone have a good recommendation for a tour guide or tour company in Budapest?
We took the "Free Walking Tour" of Budapest where the tour guides work for tips. And we took their nightlife tour that night and had a ball. We often take the same tours as soon as we hit a city. They're online.
Have known, recommended and used Andrew for over a decade now: http://www.guideinbudapest.com/
I have a very strong recommendation: Yellow Zebra bicycle tour.
I was in Budapest two summers ago. Yellow Zebra gave a superb tour of the city in English. Yellow Zebra's office is behind the opera house, which is a prominent landmark. Our guide gave a superb tour of Budapest. I wish I remember my guide's name so you could get her, because she did such a fabulous job.
I hope you love Budapest as much as I did. I visited the city only that one time, yet it's already one of my favorite European cities. I wish I had gone there 20 years ago. For me Budapest ranks up there with Paris and London. It's that good.
I was recently reminded of these folks. I have only done one of their tours but it was exceptional. If they do all the tours as well, then this is a sure bet:
