Absolutely a great thing to participate in while in Budapest. Aaron the instructor was great and informative and took us to interesting places with great stories about them. The tour was leisured and is suitable for the elderly as well. Overall it is highly recommended.

Free tour based on donation, what a superb idea!! Adam was our lovely guide, quite amusing and very very very nice. He's a walking book of knowledge. Our tour was 3 hours long (make sure you have your breakfast if you go on a 10:30am tour), after which Adam personally took us to a local buffet eatery with the lowest... More

Our guide Anita made this comprehensive walking tour of Budapest a real highlight. She brought thoughtful reflection, interesting insight and appropriate humour to this experience. In three hours we covered a fascinating range of sights and themes across both Pest and Buda, and they were covered with relevant personal viewpoint, useful back stories and passion which revealed a genuine interest...

We joined in on this tour our second day in Budapest. We ended up with around 20 people in our tour group, but the guide had no trouble managing all of us. She was incredibly enthusiastic and informative while walking us around many of the highlights of Budapest. I enjoyed her commentary, humor and insight into our many stops. This... More

We went on the general tour and pub tour with Orsi, and it absolutely made our time in Budapest. Orsi gave us so many tips on the general walking tour and we even left with a little booklet that had everything we needed (from how to pronounce words in Hungarian to a price guide) to make sure our trip was...

We did the communist tour with aaron. It was our first walking tour with Free Walking Tours and we were left very happy. Aaron was well organised, informative, articulate and clearly passionate about the subject. We learned a lot for the 3 hours with them and would recommend in a heart beat.

My husband and I recently returned from a week-long trip to Budapest. While in Budapest, we went on all four of the Free Budapest Walking Tours: the Original Tour, the Communist Tour, the Jewish District Tour, and the Pub Tour. All were excellent and we highly recommend them. The guides (Zoltan, Aaron, and Norbert) were fantastic! They were all very... More

We did the general tour and the the Jewish tour and both were amazing. It's the best options if your are going to stay a couple of days and you don't have enough time to getting lost by yourself. Highly recomended!
