Full description
Discover the most iconic locations in Budapest on this walking tour of the inner city of Pest. Start your stroll in Marcius 15 Square and admire the Gothic Medieval cathedral of the Great Blessed Lady. Walk along the Duna Corso river promenade and enjoy the beautiful view over the Danube, its bridges, and the Castle of Buda on the opposite side. Pass by the spectacular dance palace Pesti Vigado, and see the historical Gerbeaud Cafe in Vorosmarty Square. Take a stroll through Elizabeth Park and see Budapest Eye, the largest Ferris wheel in Europe. After a short walk, you will arrive at one of the highlights of the tour: St Stephen’s Basilica, with its monumental dome and colonnade.  Continue through the traditional pedestrian streets of the city and see the cute statue of Mr. Safe who will definitely make you smile. Next, arrive at Liberty Square where you will learn about Budapest's traumatic past as a center of Nazi occupation and Communist oppression.  Finish your tour in Kossuth Square and admire the sights surrounding the majestic Hungarian Parliament building. Hear stories of dictatorship and the 1956 revolution. Afterwards, you can pay a visit to the poignant Shoes on the Danube Bank monument or enjoy a stroll along the banks of the river.

Our tour guide Naomi, provided a interesting and informative tour of our first visit to the beautiful Budapest. It was a wonderful welcome to the city and its culture. All our questions were fully answered, the whole experience was relaxed and not at all hurried, I never felt pressured to move on to the next point before being ready to do so. Thank you to our expert guide who worked so hard to make our trip a pleasure. Very highly recommended, and great value for money.

We really enjoyed our tour of Budapest. Our guide good time to walk us along the river, explaining both Buda and Pest as well as many of the differences. We walked into a beautiful hotel, which used to be a beautiful shopping area and had a simply exquisite ceiling. She explained a great deal about what life was like when she was younger, and under communist rule.

Noemi was a fantastic tour guide. She explained the history of Budapest well and was happy to answer any questions we had. She arrived on time and took us around downtown Pest but also highlighting key sights on the Buda sign. Thank you for a wonderful start to our trip
