Tour description

There are a number of reasons why we can recommend you to take this tour, let’s see a couple of them. First of all, if you arrive to Budapest in the afternoon, most of the other free walking tours had already been departed, but you still would like to make the best of your evening and see some of the city during your first free couple of hours in the Hungarian capital city. This tour starts in the early evening and lasts for 1-1,5 hours which is perfect, because then you still have time to have dinner or go out to explore the nightlife of Budapest after the walk. Our local guides can recommend restaurants and pubs at the end of the tour in the downtown area. 

Also, our Evening walk is ideal for those who cannot take longer walks because of health or any other issues, the pace and the route is easy. It starts and ends on the Pest side of the city, takes you from Elisabeth square through the downtown and the famous shopping street, the Váci street to the Great Market hall on Fővám square (which is already closed at the end of the tour, but you can return and check it out the next day!). If you find that you still have some energy left at the end, it’s recommended to cross the Liberty bridge and walk up to the top of the Gellért hill (takes about 15-20 minutes) and admire the view of the beautiful, lit up city. If you are planning to join us in the wintertime or summertime, but you cannot bear the cold or hot weather for long, the Evening walk is great for you, since it is a bit shorter than for example the Original Budapest tour, but it has a similar, general topic. You can learn about some of the Hungarian and Budapest’s history, culture, cuisine and nightlife during this useful, compact walk. Another reason why it’s great to join our Evening tour is that even if you’ve seen some of the same attractions during the day, this walk will give you a new perspective, so join us for a fascinating guided tour brought to you by our knowledgeable, local tour guides to discover Budapest’s historical downtown and urban legends!
