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

Your first day at The Pearl of the Danube? 🌟

"We will see the main points . We will learn the necessary tips and fly chronologically through the history of Hungary"

After this tour you will see the city with the eyes it deserves!


Like any newcomer to the city, we all have the same question where would I start my visit?

We will help you discover Budapest along two lines:

On the one hand, we will take a historical approach to the origins of Hungary and its glorious past as part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, visiting the main monuments of the Imperial Pest:

  1. Budapest Parliament.
  2. Chain Bridges.
  3. Liberty Square.
  4. St. Stephen's Basilica.
  5. Istvan Széchenyi Square.
  6. Sisi statue.

On the other hand , we will focus on the communist period and the Second World War. In this second part of the tour we will visit:

We will contemplate some relevant points of the Budapest Parliament . If you look closely, we will see the shrapnel marks.

All of this from the critical perspective that only a team of official guides with seven years of experience as tour guides in Budapest can give us.

We will enjoy, you will see! We wait for you.

Important information for travelers:
- Minimum: 6 people for the tour to depart.

Llevamos casi un mes recorriendo varios países de Europa, y realizando infinidad de walking-tours, pero Marco nos sorprendió con su histrionismo y su conocimiento de Budapest y su historia. Por lejos fue el mejor tour que hicimos, muy bueno!!
