The girl was so nice and funny. It was interesting to get to know a bit of Hungarian history that otherwise you wouldn't know. Really worthy!

We met at vorosmarty Square at 10.30, then split into nationality groups .stopped half way at a café before the last bit of the walk up to Fisherman’s Bastion, which was well worth the steps, we were lucky with the weather ,but...

Very interesting tour. The guide was very friendly, explaining in very interesting way. Unfortunately I 've got only one disadvantage: normal tour in raining day - the guide should find places for stops not in open places..

Our tour guide Barbara was excellent and taught us lots about Budapest and its history. We were given the option to go to a restaurant serving traditional Hungarian food afterwards which was very cheap and was nice. Enjoyed our tour and would definitely recommend.

This 2.5 hour walking tour was amazing! Our tour guide was Judith (her English name). She made it really fun and she was entertaining! We saw many great sites and she told us about a lot of country's history! You finish the walk on the Buda side (castle district) where you have great views of Pest. The only negative is... More

Definitely worthy of the number 1 status it has. We had the pleasure of being guided by Zoltan and he did a great job. Tour lasted from 10.30 - 13.00 and we got to see the Chain Bridge, the Basilica, Fishermans Bastion amongst other beautiful places. Do it early in your stay to get your bearings and learn about the... More

We chose this tour because of its rating on TripAdvisor. The tour guide we had was very informative but not always heard maybe a small speaker phone may be handy item to have, for the future. It was raining on our tour and the guide managed to keep us out of the rain most of the time. If you like... 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.
