What You Can Expect

Budapest City Walking Tour

Budapest Absolute City Walking Tour

Your private guide will lead you across the city of Budapest, full of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Starting at the Opera House, your walking tour begins with a short ride on the Millennium metro out to Heroes' Square and City Park. A walk through the park then takes you to the Vajdahunyad Castle complex, built for the World Expo in 1896 in typical Hungarian designs. Next stop is the Szechenyi bath house before taking the Millennium metro back to the city center.

Continuing on, the walking tour stops at St. Stephen's Basilica before passing the areas of Deak and Elizabeth square.

Afterwards, take a break in a typical Hungarian cafe where you will enjoy a hot drink and two delicious strudel pastry (included).

Next, you'll follow tiny streets towards the city center, stopping at Ferenciek Square to view the amazing architecture. Take a short stroll along the Vaci walking street then head down to the riverside's famous Danube Promenade. As you walk along, take in the spectacular views of Gellert Hill and the Citadel, Buda Hills and the Buda Castle District.

Stop outside the Vigado, the former municipal hall, then make the most of a picturesque photo opportunity of the little princess before crossing the famous Chain Bridge.

For the final part of the tour, you'll climb the steps to the Royal Palace in the Buda Castle District, then walk through the old cobblestone streets and alleys to the tour's finishing point in front of the Matthias church and Fisherman's Bastion.

At the conclusion of the tour, your guide can provide tips, directions and more to help you to make the most of your time in Budapest.

Excellent tour, incorporating walking and the subway. Not recommended for those with walking difficulties. Our tour guide was outstanding. At the end of our 4 hour tour, she put on another hat and did a free tour of the Buda palace through another company where the walking tour ended. Quite a treat!

The guide was teriffic. She made it interesting, it didn't sound like a lecture.

We stopped at a local cafe and had a beverage and fresh made strudel. it was so good we went back there for dinner. We will book Viator again on our next trip.

One of the best ways to understand what you see when you are walking around the magnificent sights of Budapest is to have a guide that knows the history and can deliver it in an interesting way. Our tour guide was called László and he did this perfectly with a bit of humour and a lot of knowledge. Our 3 hour walk took close to 4 hours and from what I can see this is a common occurrence on this walk - lots to see and a lot of history to cover, We have done walks in many cities across the world and this was one of the best.

George was a wonderful tour guide! We went to both the Buda and Pest sides of the Danube and saw many sights. George gave us an interesting history of the places we went and answered all of our questions. We even got to stop at a restaurant and sample some treats!
