What makes this tour special
Travel isn’t just about travel, it’s people, faces, food and cultures, fresh perspectives, discoveries and different ways of life - it’s about uncovering the city’s soul. It’s about connection. On your private, guided tour of Budapest with a local:
Enjoy meaningful insights from a Budapest local .
Hear how locals describe Budapest - the experiences that have shaped their worldview, the differences between ‘Buda’ and ‘Pest’, and what it’s like to have spas at the centre of urban culture.
Spend a few hours walking around the city’s highlights with a private, local guide.
Pick up invaluable recommendations, advice, tips and reassurance as you explore highlights and off-the-beaten-track side streets.
Grab a beer or a coffee in your local guide’s favorite haunt.
Learn first-hand what locals love about Budapest from someone who knows the place inside-out.
Considered one of Europe’s most striking cities, Budapest contains an incredible array of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Split by a wide sweep of the River Danube, despite a 1873 merger of both independent settlements Buda and Pest, the city is rich in geothermal water resources with thousands of subterranean pools spouting mineral-rich waters dating back over 2,000 years. Using 20-million litres of water, Budapest’s grand, mosaic-clad bath-houses are open to the public, earning it the title of ́World's Spa Capital’.
Enjoying a private, guided tour with a local will help you discover the sights that tourists so often miss. Hear the intriguing backstories and learn the neighbourhood’s contextual backstories and rumors which bring Budapest to life, from the Ottoman period (16th century) to the present day. On your private walking tour with a local, you will see the Neo-gothic parliament building, trace Roman era history at Budapest History Museum and stroll bird-scattered Trinity Square to 13th-century Matthias Church. You will also see first-hand how a diversity of styles of urban art, architecture, and ideas have breathed energy and spirit into previously dilapidated areas of public space in a wide range of neighbourhoods. Experience the practical good-naturedness of a Budapest local over a local beer or coffee at one of Budapest’s famed coffee houses, and then jot down your guide’s version of “must do Budapest’.
