Tour description

Explore Budapest through its alternative cultures on a 2 hour small-group walking tour of the sights and historical landmarks that other tours rarely show you. Go deeper into Budapest’s art scenes, mural paintings, and statutes and explore the present and future, rather than the past.

Head away from the main tourist hangouts to explore Budapest's Jewish district, where the city’s alternative culture is kicking off.  Learn about, and visit ruined bars and how the city developed after the World War.

We will visit:

  • Main murals in district 7
  • Szimpla Kert ruin bar
  • "colorful city" arts
  • Memorial statues in the Jewish quarter
  • Famous abandoned buildings

Looking forward to seeing you on my tour! :)

Interesting walk through some of the grittier areas of the Jewish quarter. Included stories of many of the large murals, secret passages and finishing with a tour of a Ruin Bar. Janet is an engaging speaker and really knows the area. Also provided excellent recommendations for dining and entertainment. Our group agreed this was the best tour of our week of travel! Highly recommend!

We like to support female guides! She communicated with us the day before through the Guru app - much appreciated as we often don't hear from our guides beforehand. :) This street art tour was focused on large murals rather than graffiti, stickers, paste-ups. We got a new perspective on other types of street art than we had previously learned about. Janet had positive energy, clear information and was well organized. She put thought into keeping her guests interested during the experience!
