In a few words: Basic overview with practical orientation.
General Sightseeing Walk: you can get a short, general historic overview during this tour, but it is more like an orientation than an actual historical tour of Budapest. If you do not know anything about Hungary, it is a great way to get started. If you are a history buff and want something more in depth please join our private sightseeing walks instead.
(You can choose from our customized private tours where you can make sure you spend 1 on 1 time with the tour guide and the tour is based only on your interest, need and pace.)
We also give useful orientation with well-balanced and not sponsored tips about where to go and what to do in Budapest and there is plenty of time to ask questions. Both tours (10.30am and 2.30pm) cover the same sights!
Communism Walk: This tour is not the type of tour where you go and look at fancy buildings, although you do look at some buildings and memorials. Rather, it’s about the history and daily life of Communism in Hungary and about the Hungarian people. We provide an interesting first-hand info of life in Hungary, in the pre and post Iron Curtain/Cold war era and help to understand the local way of living and not just seeing the city from a touristic viewpoint.
Jewish Quarter Walking Tour: It gives an excellent introduction to the Jewish religious traditions, cultural art and the mutuality with the Hungarian history. We also introduce the last Jewish Ghetto in Europe that is abundant in hidden Jewish symbols. This tour (and all our free walking tours) doesn’t include entering to sites where payment is required (for example the largest synagogue of Europe, the Dohány street synagogue).
Urban and Street art walking tour: this tour is not a typical “graffiti tour”, but mostly we see the legal kind of street art mainly in the 7th district of Budapest, which is the Jewish quarter. We see murals that are mostly about Hungarian culture, history, cuisine etc. You can also get to know how an innovation was created in the area during recent years by artists and the city.
Evening tour: A lovely ~1.5 hour long evening walk in the heart of Budapest. It is a short picturesque stroll, only about 2 km and, if you are tired of longer walks, take this one! Ideal for everyone, but especially for those who arrive to Budapest in the afternoon and missed the other tours already, but still would like to discover a little bit of the city on their first evening. Compact infotainment in the evening, so at night you already know the city.
Pub tour: On this tour you can get to know the (ruin) bar culture and the nightlife of Budapest. On this tour we visit at least 3 bars. You get free welcome drinks, hang out with our guides and feel a bit like a local for a few hours. This tour is not a free walking tour, please check the current tour rate on this tour’s subpage.
