Budapest All in One Walking Tour

Budapest city walking tour

Stroll across the streets of Budapest with a local guide on this 3-hour tour. Beginning at the Hungarian State Opera House, you’ll hop on the metro for a quick ride out to City Park, beloved by locals and visitors alike, and Heroes’ Square. There you’ll see the impressive statues of Hungary’s most important national leaders. After taking a walk through the park, you’ll come to the Vajdahunyad Castle, constructed in 1896 as part of the Millennial Exhibition, which celebrated 1,000 years since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin.

Your next stop will be the popular Szechenyi Spa, Europe’s largest thermal bath, before taking the metro back into the city center.

From there, you’ll encounter the neo-classical structure of St. Stephen’s Basilica, one of the two tallest buildings in Budapest. Afterward, take a load off your feet in a Hungarian cafe where you can relax with a hot drink and two delicious pastries included in the price of your ticket.

After your snack, you’ll continue along the cobblestone streets towards Ferenciek Square and Vaci Street, a strip well-known for its shops and trinkets. You’ll then walk along the Danube Promenade, taking in the panorama of Gellert Hill and the Citadel, while snapping a photo of the Chain Bridge. You’ll conclude your tour in the Buda Castle District, where you can take the last of your photos from the stunning lookout at Fisherman's Bastion.

Wonderful tour. We did this on our first day in Budapest. The tour gives a great overview of the city and is personalized as it is a small group. The tour is very comprehensive and you are able to see all the unique areas of the city including taking the train. Considering the amount that we were able to see on the tour, it was still at a relaxed pace. It was evident that our guide had pride in his country and enjoyed his job.

Our experience of this was great. Our 25 year old guide was a mine of information. We wore ponchos as we had 4 1/2 hours of snow and rain but it did not dull the experience. Do this at the start of your holiday as it will come in useful when travelling yourselves to all the areas. We could ask our guide about any information we needed and he knew the answer. Very enjoyable and well worth the money.

This was an amazing tour I would highly recommend, in fact I have to friends who are visiting Budapest in March. I think our guides name was George and he was very engaging and knowledgeable and helped us make the most of our relatively short stay in this amazing city. Do the walking tour first as you arrive in Budapest and then you have a good idea of where you need to return to or other places that the guide recommends.

Traveling with a friend we found this tour through Viator Company Name: Absolute Tours and it was definitely our favorite part of our weekend. We did the tour on a Sunday at the end of January. There were only 4 people total on the tour. The guide, Bálint was absolutely perfect he spoke great English and mixed in history, current events, and humor into each location we visited. You could feel the passion he has for Hungary. The pace of the tour was perfect a mixture of walking, train riding, and sitting. 3.5 hour walking tour may seem like a lot but it wasnt walking straight the entire time, definitely time to enjoy the sites and stop and listen to Bálint tell you about the history. We stopped at one point at a pastry shop for strudels which were out of this world I went with Bálints recommendation Poppy Seed and Cheese and Cherry superb!.
