We only have 2 full days in Budapest and wanted to make the most of it with a walking tour. We started with the 3 hour general tour, with our guide Agi, who was great. This tour shows you all the big attractions with a bit of information about each. Great way to get lay of the land and check... More

The guide were really kind and she told us lot of interesting stories. I am from Hungary but still for me it was really interesting with lot of interesting information. Otherwise it was quiet long, but they provide you more option to go to bathroom or to eat/drink something quickly during the tour.

The Free walking tours were outstanding. We took 3, The Budapest tour, The Jewish quarter and the Ruin Pup tour. Groups were around 15-20 on each tour. Our guides were local young people who were outgoing and personable and had grown up in the city. Angelica was our Budapest guide. She really has a heart for the city and was... More

As a guide with London Walks, I can speak with some experience of guiding visitors through a strange city and the 'free' walks in Budapest were the first thing we did on our first day of four in Budapest.

A good introduction to Budapest. Recommended esp for those who have limited time in the city. It's still worth doing for those who have extra time in the city as it gives you a snapshot of the city and where you want to come back and spend a little bit more time on your own. Anna was a GREAT guide.... More

Please note that we do our best to divide the groups into as many smaller ones as needed to offer a somewhat more personal experience.

I was lucky enough to have two tours guided by Borsca, the Jewish quarter and the nightlife tour. Both were excellent thanks to her knowledge and genuine passion for the city of Budapest. Her Jewish quarter tour was enhanced by her impressive knowledge of the local street art that forms such a vibrant part of that portion of city. She... More

We went on the tour on a cold Thursday morning. The tour starts in the square next to a large fountain, upon which we were met with a friendly happy looking guide called Zoltan. His tour was engaging and light hearted. He summed up a long and complicated history in just a few minutes before walking along to the next... More
