Tap water is drinkable everywhere in Hungary, also during our free walking tours, we show you public taps, where you can refill your water bottles.

Our free tours in Budapest run as normal in any kind of weather conditions, but if you would like to make sure you are not walking during the hottest time of the day:

We recommend you to take our free Evening walking tours. They are on Friday, Saturday at 18:30, and during summertime on Thursdays, too. (Jun 30, Jul 07, Jul 14, Jul 21, Jul 28). This tour lasts about 1-1.5 hours. The topic of this free walking tour is general, we take you around one of the center parts of the Pest side of the river Danube. See you at the meeting point, the Elisabeth square close to the Ferris wheel and the Danubius fountain.
