Approximate Cost: Tours have no fixed prices, based on contributions only. Supporting us is not compulsory and participants are free to give as much or as little as they feel the tour is worth, and is therefore available for everybody and anybody interested in Hungary. You could literally pay nothing and walk away at the end, and some people do this on nearly every tour, but most people find the tours to be extremely informative, entertaining and engaging, so they appreciate their tour guides (all tour guides work exclusively for gratuities) and with their contribution keep the project alive for the future. This is an independent project without financial support from any third parties (there is NO business or governmental involvement on any level). A suggested contribution is 5-10€/pp. The reason we suggest a number is for those who are unsure of what is helpful for us to keep running our tours free. 100% of our funding comes from your contribution. Again, nothing is compulsory, everything is welcome.
