Tour description

Welcome to Budapest!

Finally, you are here! If you would like to discover the city like a local, join me on one of my tours!

I would be happy to guide you through this amazing city and show you everything that Budapest has to offer!

On the tour, we cover the most important sights and attractions such as:

  • Historical City Centre
  • Andrássy Avenue
  • St. Stephen’s Basilica
  • Liberty Square
  • Parliament
  • Margaret island
  • Shoes on the Danube
  • Chainbridge
  • Castle District
  • Hidden gems and memorials
  • and much more…

The tour is a great way to learn about Hungarian culture and to discover the city’s colourful history, from the founding of the State, through the Ottoman Occupation and the time of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, up until the 21st century.

I cover the most important sights through stories and fun facts, but also go off the beaten track to discover some hidden gems!

Being a musician, I will cover some parts of history with music related stories and I’m eager to show you the artistic side of the city and the best places and venues to listen to and play some live music!

I will talk about the do’s and dont’s in Budapest, while I will also recommend where and what to eat and drink.

Meeting point: in front of the St.Stephen's Basilica  Look out for the green umbrella!

We were initially worried a 2.5 hour tour might be too long, but it exceeded our expectations and went by fast! Istvan, was engaging with a great sense of humor, very knowledgable about the city and its history and tried to make the tour interactive. We try to do a walking tour whenever we visit a new city and this was one of our favourites. Would highly recommend taking his tour, it’s time well spent in Budapest.

For our first day of our Budapest trip we choose to attend to the all around Budapest tour. To be honest we weren’t sure what to expect from tour but our guide Istvan was really funny and informative. The information he gave not only includes numbers but the deep culture of Hungaria. The trivia quiz in the end also made us realize what we have learned so far and that made the tour more enjoyable. Thanks for everything and highly recommend others to join this walking tour.
