What enthusiastic guides, Andy and Lilla, there knowledge is great and it gives you a good overview of Buda and Pest for the rest of your trip. Thanks to them we went to the Rudas Baths which we wouldn't have done without their recommendation. No charge but tip at least 5000 HUFs for 2 people.

The perfect walking tour with Andi as our guide. She has great english and the right level of history/humour/culture. Not too much history which a lot of tours have and can numb you in to boredom! Highly highly recommend!

I highly recommend you do the walking tour on your first day in Budapest. It will set you up for the rest of your stay as you orientate yourself to the city. The guides are very informative and will give you the best advice on what what to see and how to get around. You'll also learn a little about... More

The Original tour is a great tour to get oriented to the city. Highly recommend that it be one of the first things you do when you arrive in Budapest!

Our tour guide was Orshi. She was lovely. Very informative, funny and engaging right from the start. Also gave great tips on where to head out at night. The walking tour is a must if you're on a tight deadline as it covers a lot of the main things, and you can pick and choose the places you want to... More

We took the "Original Walk" with Bridget on our first day in Budapest (21st March 2015 - 2.30pm) and it was the perfect way to start the trip. If we didn't do this tour, we would have been wandering around aimlessly, appreciating the sites without knowing anything about them. Bridget spoke perfect English and was very helpful and willing to... More

We have found it really helpful when visiting European Cities to take the general walking tour on our first day, it helps to orientate you to the city and you get lots of useful tips. Budapest was no exception. We covered the centre of Pest - (St Istvan cathedral and Deak Ter) and then walked up to the National Gallery... More

During my 2 day trip to Budapest I attended two free walking tours. The first one was a general tour to the most important sights both on the Buda and the Pest side. It lasted for about 2.5 hours. I had the feeling that I really learned something about the culture and history of Budapest in a fun and light... More

The tour summarises the most important places within 2.5 hours time frame. If you're in the city for 3-4 days, it will sort out the entire picture for you. Great atmosphere, the team is lovely and knowledeagable (always with humor). Our guide was Agi, charming and smiling, but all the guides are great. All with hungarian accent -:) And the... More
