Full description
Discover the most iconic locations in Budapest on this walking tour of the inner city of Pest. Start your stroll in Marcius 15 Square and admire the Gothic Medieval cathedral of the Great Blessed Lady. Walk along the Duna Corso river promenade and enjoy the beautiful view over the Danube, its bridges, and the Castle of Buda on the opposite side. Pass by the spectacular dance palace Pesti Vigado, and see the historical Gerbeaud Cafe in Vorosmarty Square. Take a stroll through Elizabeth Park and see Budapest Eye, the largest Ferris wheel in Europe. After a short walk, you will arrive at one of the highlights of the tour: St Stephen’s Basilica, with its monumental dome and colonnade.  Continue through the traditional pedestrian streets of the city and see the cute statue of Mr. Safe who will definitely make you smile. Next, arrive at Liberty Square where you will learn about Budapest's traumatic past as a center of Nazi occupation and Communist oppression.  Finish your tour in Kossuth Square and admire the sights surrounding the majestic Hungarian Parliament building. Hear stories of dictatorship and the 1956 revolution. Afterwards, you can pay a visit to the poignant Shoes on the Danube Bank monument or enjoy a stroll along the banks of the river.

We did a morning walking tour of the Pest side with Zita, it was very interesting, she knows so much about the rich history of the country, it was a very interesting tour. We ended up booking a 2nd tour of the Buda Castle area with another guide Lena, which was equally great and so knowledgeable. Both tours were not rushed, enough time give to take pictures, ask questions and in small groups (we were 4 for the morning tour and 9 for the afternoon one) so much better than the other large grouped tours.

Bea was an amazing tour guide full of information and the city from it’s beginning up until it’s current state. She was open to questions and gave us great recommendations for place to visit to experience the culture and advice about the best routes by both foot and transport. The tour wasn’t too long or strenuous either. Would 100% recommend.

Our tour guide Naomi, provided a interesting and informative tour of our first visit to the beautiful Budapest. It was a wonderful welcome to the city and its culture. All our questions were fully answered, the whole experience was relaxed and not at all hurried, I never felt pressured to move on to the next point before being ready to do so. Thank you to our expert guide who worked so hard to make our trip a pleasure. Very highly recommended, and great value for money.
