Highlights

  • Great overview and orientation of the city
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
  • Led by a local guide

Our walking tour begins at the Opera House and then a short ride on the Millennium metro out to the Heroes' Sq and City Park. There you’ll have a great introduction to the rich Hungarian history and culture through the chronological line of kings. Then we walk through the city park to visit the Vajdahunyad Castle (outside only), a complex built for the world fayre in 1896 displaying typical architecture found throughout Hungary.

Next, a stop off at Széchenyi bath house (with a peek inside when open) to learn about the amazing bath culture this country has to offer. Next we take the Millennium metro back towards the city center and stop off at the end of Andrassy Blvd. where you’ll hear about the significance the street brought to culture and nobility.

After our city park visit we head over to the St. Stephen’s Basilica (outside only) before we take a break in a café for a taste of Hungary’s famous pastry called “retes” which is a traditional type of strudel.  Here guests will each get two homemade pastries and a coffee or soft drink (included in the tour). After our refreshment break we head down to the riverside to see the famous blue Danube.  Here we will take in the spectacular view of Gellert hill and the Citadel, Buda Hills and the Royal Palace as we cross the river via Budapest’s Chain Bridge.

For the final leg of the tour we climb the steps up into the Buda Castle District and then wander through the old cobble stone streets and alleys to our finishing point in front of the Matthias church and Fisherman’s Bastion. At the conclusion of the tour the guide will help with ideas, directions and more!

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 and get to know your guide plus hit them up for local tips of where to go and what else to do.

Adrienne was an outstanding tour guide and she made sure we saw everything mentioned in the info provided online. She knows the city well, and explained Budapest's history and showed us places we wouldn't have seen had we not gone on the tour. There were only four of us on the tour, which made it easy to hear everything she explained to us. We also loved the stop at the coffee shop for something to drink and baked goods too! Budapest is a wonderful city, and this was a wonderful way to experience it where we had time to take pictures along the way. Loved this tour!

We really enjoyed our walking tour with our tour guide Orsi and 6 other people. Orsi was very nice and very knowledgeable with excellent English skills. We took the subway to Hero's Square and walked to the Szechenyi Bathhouse area. We then went to a nice cafe and had strudel and coffee and got warmed up as it was a cold, windy December day. Afterwards, we walked across the Chain Bridge and up the steep hill to the Buda Castle and Matthias Church which was beautiful! Our tour ended there and afterwards we went to the Hospital in the Rock Museum on our own. Do not miss this attraction, it was amazing!
