Free or not it was a great tour. Tour guide was super passionate and the tour was very thorough and covered all of the major site. The tour guide answered all of my questions very well be them related to history, economy, culture or just life in Budapest in general. Very glad I did it

Well done Andreea! We all met at 10.30 am and set out on an introduction tour of the history and architecture of Budapest. By 1 pm we had all enjoyed an information packed tour. No fuss, no pressure to buy into anything else, no taking you passed shops where they have a vested interest ... Open to any questions and... More

Our guide was Sara . She did an excellent job giving a brief overview of Hungarian history and explaining the sights and buildings around us. I'm a young student who is generally more inclined to avoid tours and other touristy things and would prefer to simply discover a city on my own. However, this tour unlocked Budapest and exposed me... More

We did the free general tour of Budapest with Orsi. She is a local who speaks great English, knows loads about Budapest and kept us fascinated with a string of interesting, informative and funny comments. Our tour lasted 3 hours but the time flew by as we learned about the complicated history of Budapest and Hungary, spoke a little Hungarian... More

I took all 3 free walking tours, and I absolutely enjoyed all 3. You get knowledgeable local tour guides who are enthusiastic about Budapest and its past, present, and future. I recommend starting with the general tour and taking the others on different days depending on your interest/schedule, and tipping your guides for their efforts. It's worth mentioning that the...

I would highly recommend doing this your very first morning in Budapest as we did. We learned so much about the city and the people. It also gave a nice overview of where we wanted to return to. They offer tours in English and Spanish.
