What You Can Expect
Then travel to the place where the underground scene started, the former working-class districts that have since become the pulse of arts and culture. Learn the stories of how the art world kept alive under the communist leadership.
Then enjoy a walk over to the Buda side of the city, crossing the Danube along the way. There you’ll see the ex-Ukrainian vessel, A38, that has transformed into one of the city’s most popular spots for live music. Your guide will conclude your tour in front of the ship.

Informative, entertaining and relaxed from the start, this tour was exactly the combination of artsy insights into today's city life and welcoming orientation exercise on new and exotic streets I was looking for. And my guide, media designer Dareios brought massive charm, wry humour and jaw-droopingly good English to the mix. His smart commentary added an authentic, young-local-artist perspective to the more official line about contemporary culture and its commercial successes, and as I was lucky enough to be the only customer on the freezing January afternoon I took the tour, he asked how he could tailor it my interests, and even invited me for an excellent Hungarian craft beer afterwards in a deeply cool bar in District 8 I'll probably never be able to find again. 11 out of 10 for customer service and canny chat. Thanks D.

My tour guide became a friend, ended up going to one of her gigs. highly recommended
Clear stories, very good languages and funny presenter with full knowledge of Budapest
I really enjoyed this tour. Agnes was a very charming and knowledgeable guide. I liked that the stops showed various aspects of Budapest culture, providing us with places to revisit at a later date (which I did!). If you want to get a taste of cool places to see in Budapest then this is the tour!

Very nice. Guide was friendly and new her information. Very lovely lady and beautiful sites.
My boyfreind and I booked this a mere 24hours before and we received our confirmation quickly.
Antonia was our guide and is very much a local who doesn't only know Budapest art and culture, it is her lifestyle. You know this as during the tour she'll acknowledge local acquaintances and discus how she herself discovered the things she will show you.
I really wouldn't of understood/ noticed the significance of the things pointed out and really aren't in any guide books Trust me I bought 3 before my trip. The tour is based mostly in 7th district, the modern young hub of the city with a complex past.It is a walking tour and you'll stop for a drink on route which allows you a little time to explore the venue alone at your pace.
You must be into arts in some form to enjoy it,history and politics of course plays a part of the tour but you don't need to be well versed in it as she explains well and it is only really discussed in context of what is being shown. If you are interested in 'Hungarians opinion about ...' she's happy to oblige you. Her english is fantastic and was well understood by all the nationalities on the tour. The tone is friendly, relaxed and light hearted. Expect hipster havens, peeping in on local artists at work and the products of community projects. At the end of the tour she was very accommodating in offering us tips during our stay of events going on and places we might like based on our tastes.
The Tour will take your afternoon but you leave the guide with a feeling of understanding the modern Budapest and its arty inhabitants. More than worth the time and money.
Antonia Vai is also a fantastic musician and we were fortunate to be able to pop in on a gig which we thoroughly enjoyed.
A really interesting tour, with a very welcoming and knowledgeable guide who clearly loved the city and wanted us, as visitors, to know more about its recent artistic history. A couple of pit-stops for coffee and mulled cider were much appreciated on a cold November afternoon! Would highly recommend.
Great guide. Took her time to explain the street art we saw and really enjoyed our stop at a ruin bar and coffee shop. In addition, our guide made many suggestions for restaurants and other sights we might be interested in.
This tour was wonderful and our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We saw a part of the city that we would never have seen on our own. She took us to places that only a local would know about. Truly worthwhile. We had a very small group and they still honored the commitment.
This is a must if you are at all interested in the arts and culture. The tour guides are knowledgeable and friendly.
