What You Can Expect
Get some light exercise climbing the steps up to the Royal Palace, set in the Buda Castle District. As you pass the old-world charm of Hess András, Holy Trinity and Disz Square, you’ll also have the chance to see sites slightly off the beaten path, like the military museum, Lions Courtyard and the Vienna Gate.
Continuing on through the cobblestone streets, stop at the beautiful Matthias Church, named after King Matthias, and also known as The Church of Mary. You’ll also view the Great Synagogue and Mary Magdalena Church.
Your guide will end your tour with a glimpse of the seven towers. Head to the lookout point of Fisherman’s Bastion, which boasts one of the best views of the city. Take a picture from the top as you spot Margaret Island, Parliament and the beautiful waters of the Danube below. After admiring the panoramic view, you’ll have the option of traveling back to your original departure point with your guide or continuing to explore the area on your own.
Great guide, only my husband and myself. Very interesting and showed us all the pertinent sights, allowed time for us to take photos and answered all our questions.
Fabulous afternoon with Anna! So glad I booked it.

The tour we scheduled the guide did not show up. We were not happy but were able to reschedule to the next day. Actually it worked out great as the date we scheduled it was raining. Our guide Anita was excellent. She was one of the best guides we have had with Viator. The tour offered great information and was a good intro to Budapest. Excellent photo ops.
Our tour was fantastic. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He took great care in showing us the sights explaining the interesting history behind all the amazing architecture. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone and we are completely satisfied. Our experience was wonderful. Our tour guides name was Gabriel (Hungarian version of Gabriel)

This tour was very informative and interesting---our guide, Brigit, was excellent throughout. Her standard of English was outstanding, she was very friendly and always willing to answer any questions we had. She also ensured that our tour reached the Presidential palace at midday in order that we might witness the ceremonial changing of the guard. Certainly worth an hour or so of your time...
Tamas was a great guide! What a fun tour.
We liked our walking tour very much, thank you Anita!
Our tour guide was lovely, and her English was impeccable. She gave interesting historical anecdotes. The walking is very slow paced and there are no hills.
