What You Can Expect

Small-Group Budapest Art and Culture Walking Tour

Small group Budapest Art&Culture walking tour

Shy away from the usual tourist stops on this 3-hour walking experience with a local guide, and get an inside look at Budapest’s alternative culture. You’ll first scout out the synagogues in the Jewish Quarter, hidden slightly from view. Next, head to some of Budapest’s most impressive street art galleries to immerse yourself in the underground art scene, before making a quick stop at a cool coffeehouse (own expense) and photo gallery.

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.

Please note: In an effort to visit the most up-to-date and exciting artistic venues, the itinerary details are subject to change.

Great walking tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very engaging. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to see some of the local art and learn things about the city that you won't find in a conventional guide book.

A very interesting and worthwhile tour. A great opportunity to learn about street art, design, politics and local history as you walk through the 7th district. Our guide Anita Kurti, was excellent, knowledgeable and open to answering the many questions that came up as we went along. I learned a lot, met some interesting people and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning how art, history and politics intersect here in Budapest. A huge thank you to Anita!

Awesome tour. We were so lucky to be the only ones on the tour with Darius. We saw things that would have been difficult to do on our own. So informative and fun. Thanks Darius for sharing your knowledge of culture and art in Budapest and for the amazing conversations. Best tour I've ever taken anywhere. Very highly recommended.

Loved this tour and tour leader was great. Off the beaten tourist circuit and maybe not for everyone but we really enjoyed it.

Awesome tour, our guide was really experienced and happy to share many personal stories as well about the culture and history of the city. I loved in Budapest for a while years earlier and I found myself exploring parts I had never seen before.

Fabulous tour with charming Bogata who is knowledgeable on all Budapest street art and funky venues offering a stylish insight of evolving Budapest contemporary culture. I loved the visit to Massolit book store and cafe, the visit to Corvina and fab trendy cafe enjoying great company.

Thankyou Bogata, wishing you well in future ventures.

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.
