"Susan Hill offers an original take on tourism, one that is equally interested in the production of the imaginary of a place and its producer, the tour guide. Alternative Tourism in Budapest is fascinating, provocative, and entertaining, if also troubling in the depiction of how the business of ‘going off the beaten path’ can seamlessly melt into the logic of neoliberal urbanism." — Judit Bodnár, Central European University
