Private Budapest Walking Tour with Cafe Stop

Private Budapest Walking Tour

This 3-hour private tour of Budapest is built around the curiosities of your group, so if there’s a stop you don’t want to miss, be sure to let your guide know prior to departure. Your trip will begin with pickup from your centrally-located hotel.

Hop on public transportation (included with your ticket) to Heroes’ Square, a World Heritage Site noted for its iconic statues of the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other significant national leaders. Then, walk to the bordering City Park, which houses the Vajdahunyad Castle, constructed for the 1896 Millennial Exhibition in Hungary.

Afterward, pass the Szechenyi Baths, the largest thermal bath in Budapest and one of the largest baths in Europe. Your guide will discuss the history of Hungary’s bath culture and, if the baths are open, you’ll can take a look inside.

Next, take the metro to Andrassy Boulevard, filled with the rich history of the nobility and presently hosting an array of shops and restaurants. You'll then travel to St Stephen’s Basilica, a towering structure with remarkable acoustics, where a variety of classical music concerts are often held.

Then take a load off of your feet and settle into a café for break with two Hungarian pastries. This snack is included with your ticket and also comes with an option of coffee, tea, soda or water.

No trip to Budapest is complete without a stop at the Danube River, where you’ll head next. Enjoy a view of Gellért Hill, the Citadella and the Royal Palace as you cross the Chain Bridge over to the Buda side of the city.

The last part of the tour will take you up to the Buda Castle District. Wander through the old cobblestone streets to Matthias Church and Fisherman’s Bastion. Here you can enjoy fabulous views of the city as the tour concludes.

Orshia aka Orshi led us through this wonderful walk that introduced us to the city ! A young actress taking time off to care for her 3 year old son, being a City guide gives her the flexibility to balance home and work. A very pleasant, humourous and knowledgeable guide who in a leisurely comfortable walk showed us with pride the wonderful city that is her home !

We had a great walking tour of Budapest led by Ardap. He was able to tailor a tour for us with a blend of history, architecture and culture which did not double up on sights seen the previous day. We took a ride on the historic metro and ended up at the baths across the Danube after a short tram ride. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone as you can do the walk at your own pace and not be slowed down with large groups.

That was THE best tour! Our tour guide Adrienne was truly awesome. We went at our own pace and added to walk over the chain bridge and the Jewish section. We always use Viator where ever we are in Europe and have never been disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our private walking tour with Bogata. She was amazing, with so much knowledge. I would tour with her again, anytime! We covered so much ground and saw so many grand sights. This was the best way to see the city of Budapest. Thank you, Bogata and Viator.

Adrienne was a WONDERFUL guide prompt, professional, informative, fun, energetic, and passionate about her work. We wanted to learn not only about ancient Hungarian history but also get a glimpse of the impact of WWII and Communist rule. Adrienne was knowledgeable on all fronts! She also was attentive to our interests and gave us an overview of where we would walk and what we could expect for the tour. Appreciated the map we were given as well!
There is a good deal of walking on this tour but it was exactly what we were hoping to experience. Enjoyed the metro ride and the the struedel/refreshment stop was perfectly timed. The stairs to the Buda Castle area could be challenging to some but she offered the funicular as an option. We did that on our own later in the day and chose the down vs. the up ride.
Definitely a great value!

Vi havde en fantastisk tur og vores guide var god og fortalte rigtig meget om Budapest og vi kom rundt til det meste, der er at se i Budapest. Hun kom også med gode anbefalinger til andre steder vi kunne tage hen på egen hånd.
