We took the general tour in the morning and the Jewish tour in the afternoon. I'd recommend it as a fantastic introduction to the city's history and a great way to orient yourself.

We did the afternoon general tour of Budapest which we really enjoyed. We loved learning about the city and really appreciated the leaflet with places to visit and things to do and don't do in Budapest regarding eating out etc. The tour ran at a good pace and it was easy to ask questions as our guide was approachable and...

Free tours are usually of high quality but Free Budapest Walking Tours have raised the level even higher. We did both the original walk and the communism walk and both were fantastic. The guides (Zoltan and Orsi) were very keen on making everybody getting the most out of the tours. We learned a lot and got many helpful tips which... More

Having already seen many of the sights of Budapest using our HOHO bus pass, we decided to do a slightly different walking tour - the communist walking tour. Our guide was friendly and full of information and she showed us a side to Budapest we would never have discovered on our own. Highly recommend if you're looking for a slightly... More

Nice walking tour guided by locals, with a little bit of historical background but not too much! Also a lot of interaction between tourguide and visitors. We visited both Buda and Pest. At the end you receive a little newsletter with lots of tips, do's and don'ts!

He even helped ordering lunch in a local restaurant (after the tour) Really amazing and highly recommend to every tourist or citizen! Tomorrow we're going tot do the Jewish... More

This tour was a perfect introduction to Budapest and Hungary in general. As with all similar tours I've done, this tour is a great way to orientate oneself upon arrival and get some ideas of further activities, especially for travellers on a tight budget, as one pays only what one can afford. More so than many other tours I've done,... More

We did the afternoon tour last week and had a great experience! Lucky they had a lot of guides on hand as I would say over 100 people were there to take the tour. Our guide was excellent, very upbeat and with a fun sense of humor (which unfortunately not everyone grasped well). This 2.5 hour tour was a great... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
