Join up with your guide in Castle Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage Site housing the Royal Palace. Here you’ll find most of Budapest’s remaining medieval buildings and sweeping views over Pest. Your guide will explain the diverse architecture present in the area, as well as the myriad influences that have affected district’s development over the centuries.
Stroll through the rest of Castle Hill with your guide to spot the National Library and the Hungarian National Gallery, a museum situated inside the castle. Sneak a peek at the president’s residence, the Sándor Palace, as well as the Castle Theatre, a former church with an active list of performances to this day.
Next, grab a window seat as you make your way to Adam Clark Square on the funicular, riding safely down the hill in a charming cable car. From there, cross the famous Chain Bridge to make your way over to the Pest side of the city.
Once in Pest, it’s time to board a boat! You’ll top off your tour with a 1-hour journey along with Danube with a soft drink provided by your hosts. Take in the unbeatable views of Parliament, Margaret Island and more, before your tour concludes at the city center pier.

Our tour guide was very interactive and knowledgable. She was very patient with us as we love taking our selfies and wefies. It's a walking tour so if you are out doing it in October like us, make sure you are properly layered/dressed as weather was quite chilly and wet. Loads of history learnt abt the Buda and the Pest and we walked our way to the funicular ride.... LOve it! What a stunning view of Budapest. It very crowded, so if possible get on the front seat. No better way to end the day tour with boat ride between the islands. We've thoroughly enjoyed it!

The tour was great. We met our tour guide Agnus who was lovely. She spoke English very well and her knowledge of Budapest and Hungarian history was great and very detailed. You could tell she had a great love and passion for her country and the city of Budapest. The Boat ride was also very nice

Judy was wonderful-- knowledgeable and kind. Even though it rained on us, we still saw the city, heard the history, and stopped for dessert at a old bakery. The city is lovely, the history is impressive and the little sites Judy showed us were gems we would have missed if on our own.

Our guide was outstanding and did an amazing job. He was as excited to give the tour as we were to take it and his enthusiasm was contagious. This tour was wonderful and there is just so much to see in Budapest. I finished this tour feeling like a I had a much better understanding of the city as a whole.

This was an excellent tour and our guide Agnes was fab and very knowledgeable. It was a small group like the walking tour and it made it much more personal and pleasant. The information that Agnes gave us was very good. The funicular and boat ride with a free drink finished the tour off in a lovely way.

All the tours we booked with Viator for our visit to Hungary were terrible. The guides were a joke. They talked while you walked with them, and unless you were right next to them, you could not hear a thing. Plus when they talked, all made no effort to speak loud enough for the group to hear, and most did not have answers to our questions. Disappointed all the way around. Viator has always done good by me. I guess this was my turn to feel I did not get my monies worth.
