In Budapest Tours we are a group of professional and accredited guides, with degrees in Art History, Geography and History; and with extensive experience in the sector and a passion in common: Budapest. We work with professionalism, honesty and transparency to show the best that this imperial city offers from a critical point of view, beyond a simple photo. With us you not only have a guide but a host, a helping hand, someone who can show you this city with the love it deserves. We think in yellow and that implies that we are guides of the 21st century. That is why we like to establish a relationship of closeness and trust between travelers and guides. This is achieved by respecting the traveler, and for him we believe that having small groups is the most sincere way of transmitting knowledge and feelings so that your trip is filled with experiences and anecdotes to tell you when you return home. Our aim is that you live Budapest with the same love that we live it every day.

Tour description


☀️Welcome to Budapest!☀️

Are you new in town? We are glad you came! Every journey starts with the first step, begin your walk with the best of the Pest tour. Let's begin! 

Although Budapest is ancient, the greatest changes came in the 1800s. In twenty-five years its population had trebled and its buildings had doubled. Initially we'll see Andrássy Avenue,Saint Stephen's Basilica and the Chain Bridge, and even more symbols of the prosperity and beauty of the capital.

As the walk continues, we will arrive to the 20th century, and focus on the dark impacts shaped the city. The Holocaust, the siege of Budapest, and the Communist terror. To understand Hungary, it is necessary to learn those cruel lessons.

Beyond history and archticture, we will give you plenty of suggestions what to eat and where to go, how to avoid tourist traps.

For us, Budapest is a book, and it is our honour to turn the pages. Shall we start?
