Full description
Explore the amazing monuments of the city center on a lovely walking tour of Budapest that's the perfect introduction to Hungary's capital for visitors who do not have enough time, money or energy for a longer sightseeing venture.

Start at 10:00 or 14:00 from the central tourist information office and get an overview of Budapest’s fractured history - from the Medieval royal residence to the rapid urban growth of the 19th century, the Nazi and Communist dictatorships, and the recent democratic change.

See sights of religious faith as the tour moves from Elisabeth Square to the monumental St. Stephen’s Basilica, and finally to the Gothic splendor of Matthias Church and walk at a comfortable pace (around 2 kilometers / 1.2 miles). The tour is ideal for individual visitors, couples, families, small companies or even larger groups.

Thoroughly recommended

Vikki gave us a valuable insight into Budapest, she kept us interested despite the bitterly cold day. It is an ideal way to get to know a city so I recommend a tour is taken early in a visit. Learning so much about Budapest and life in the City that a good tip is worth every forint (or Euro), there was also no pressure on tipping but you would have to be the meanest person on Earth not to pay for your time with one of the guides.

Best overview possible, with a very friendly guide

I only had a weekend to spend in Budapest and this tour provided a great introduction to the city's sights. My guide also made recommendations for evening entertainment, food and other tours. I learned a lot of interesting facts and felt very well taken care of - I will definitely come back and in the meantime recommend this tour to everyone who will listen!
