Alternative Budapest shows visitors not the usual sights, monuments and historical landmarks that other tours show you, but takes you deeper, further and more underground. Our tours aren't about the past, they're about what's happening now.
- Comprehensive tour of the city
- Informative, friendly and professional guide
- Small group ensures personal service
The tour covers a wide variety themes and topics – from Budapest’s graffiti and street art culture to current politics, relevant history and personal stories, to fashion, design, architecture & the local music scene. Each tour route is different depending on what is happening in the city, but you’ll visit a mixture of arts and culture centres, abandoned synagogues, independent galleries, community spaces, music venues, theatres, and make a stop for a coffee or beer in an art and coffee collective or a ruin bar come community centre/bike workshop/analogue photography gallery.
As we limit the tour to small groups only (max. 15 people, but generally smaller), our tours have a very personal feel and you’ll get to know your guide and other tour participants throughout your exploration of Budapest.
All of our guides are fully qualified and active in various areas of the alternative creative scene in Budapest and you’ll end the tour in a great venue where you’ll be able to pick the brain of your guide for info on great places to check out during your stay in Budapest (both mainstream/historical and more off-the-beaten-track).
Our walking tours are small personal groups and generally do not have more than 15 participants, making them interactive and personal and giving you plenty of chances to ask questions.
Due to the nature of the tour and the places we visit, the tour is subject to change at any time without warning. Any changes will be made in the best interests of the guest, ensuring that we are showing you the freshest developments in this ever-growing scene. We respect and support the venues and communities that are part of our tours, and therefore good behaviour from our guests is essential.

Awesome tour. We were so lucky to be the only ones on the tour with Darius. We saw things that would have been difficult to do on our own. So informative and fun. Thanks Darius for sharing your knowledge of culture and art in Budapest and for the amazing conversations. Best tour I've ever taken anywhere. Very highly recommended.

Loved this tour and tour leader was great. Off the beaten tourist circuit and maybe not for everyone but we really enjoyed it.
