My tour starts from Matthias Church in Buda Castle a minute's walk from Holy Trinity Square.
 Look out for the SkyBlue Umbrella.
 
 
We walk along the castle district and you can enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views of Budapest. You will have a chance to see the world-famous sights of the palace district.

Just to mention some of the attractions : 

  • Royal Palace
  • Matthias Fountain
  • Lion's Court

We walk through time and space to discover 800 years of history of Buda Castle, stories of kings and settlers, fights, and romances.

I would love to be your guide and share my passion for the wonders of Hungarian History.
I hope to see you soon :)

It was frustrating that I couldn't pay via PayPal. I had to go to an ATM were I got charged to retrieve money. The tour was not good enough for this kind of hustle.
