I like very much this concept of free walking city tours. I have tried it before in Tallinn and Riga and since then I always look for this option. There were more than 50 people willing to take the tour, but there were also 4 four guides ready for us. We had a guy named Andrász (maybe :) ) and... More

I can only recommend this tour! It was well-organized and informative but not overwhelming. I learnt a lot about the city and the country with its customs, traditions and culture. On the day of the tour it was very hot but there were a lot of stops to fill in the water bottle.

Easily, this is on the top 5 free walking tours I have attended in Europe. Guides are prepared, the tour is well organized, and they even give you tips about Budapest in general and how to make the best out of your trip. Our guide was dealing with ~20 people, but it was never a challenge for her, or for... More

Our guide was not only smart and funny, she made the walking tour an authentic Hungarian experience. She knew many facts and was always giving recommendations. I learned a lot from Hungary's early history till today. Definitely recommend it!

I took two walking tours during my stay in Budapest. The first tour I took was to the Jewish Quarter and my guide was extremely knowledgable. I also took the general tour in the afternoon. It was still good but probably not as good as the Jewish Quarter tour. I'm not sure exactly why as it may have been due... More

He was extremely knowledgeable and charismatic and we saw a great deal of Budapest in 3 hours!There was also a plus at the end of the tour in which he gave us a pamphlet full of tips such as where to go, what to eat and avoid...

I highly recommend this tour! We had an amazing guide named Laura who was not only very knowledgable but also had a great personality. The tour was nearly three hours and the time just flew! We loved it so much that we are doing the tour of the Jewish Quarters tomorrow.

We went on two, the Communism and the Jewish walks. Both were interesting, but found the one on communism the better of the two - more information probably. Both the guides were really friendly and helpful and we enjoyed both afternoons.

One thing you hate about walking tours is how many people rock up and it makes it so hard to do anything. We stayed at the zen hostel and was recommended this walking tour was by far the best and most interactive tour.

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.
