What You Can Expect

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.

Our private walking tour guide was Sandor. Although we had already visited a number of the places he wished to take us too, we revisited them as he had much more interesting information to offer. We experienced local buses, trams and the metro which is something we wouldn't have done on our own for fear of getting lost. Our tour started at The New York Cafe, Andrassy Street, Heroes Square, a quick peek inside the Thermal Baths, St.Stephen's Basilica, stopping at a Retro Cafe for coffee and pastry, crossing the Danube via the Chain Bridge, local bus up to Buda Castle viewing the President's House and the soon to be Prime Minister's residence. We saw so many beautiful sites we no doubt would not have found on our own. Sandor spoke perfect English, was very easy to talk too and we cannot believe how much information he retains. It was fascinating and we really enjoyed spending the morning with him. By the way, we walked from Buda Castle back to our hotel. Thank you for the experience, Budapest is our all time best ever City Break.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Hungary - which was exactly what we were looking for. He was very personable and made the whole tour very enjoyable. Our group was only 4 people so everyone had a chance to engage and ask lots of questions. I would certainly do this again. Also, the pastries were great!

This tour was amazing. Arpod was the greatest guide anyone could ask for. He tailored the tour to our needs and went above and beyond to make sure all of the sites we wanted to see were visited. Best way to get an overview of the city.

This was a highlight of our trip to Budapest! Our guide, Balint, was very knowledgeable and easy to get to know. Not only did we see all the main attractions, he spent time answering our questions about the current culture. If you only have one day for touring, this is the tour for you. Since it is private, you can cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. We used public transportation and Balint gave us a quick tutorial so we were well prepared to go it alone when the tour was complete. Wonderful day.

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.
