We hopped off the overnight train to Budapest and made it just in time to attend Sara's morning walking tour of Budapest. We found her to be very warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. After participating in Sara's tour, we didn't really know a lot about Hungary as we thought we did, and she inspired us to learn more about her... More

I have just discovered an amazing and cheap way to visit a city: the free walking tour. I met the tour guide Krisztina in Budapest, just by St. Stephen church at h 10.30. The visit at the main buildings (not inside) lasted around 2h30'. We received a lot of interesting information and had a lot of fun. We nearly forget... More

Our guide Andrea/Andy was superb. I can't say enough good things about her! She had an excellent grasp on the complicated history of the area and an excellent sense of humor. She took us to many key places and we saw beautiful architecture and vistas at every stop we made. I only wish I had gone sooner and made time... More

Walking tour is one of the best ways to get to know the city. It was the case with Budapest tour also. Desite the bad weather we had a great tour. Our tour guide Krisztina was very enthusiastic, funny, smiling and full of positive energy. She told us interesting stories about Hungarian history, food, desserts and drinks, and little things...

Norbert gave us an excellent run down on Budapest, from ancient times through the world wars to communism and the present day. Be prepared, because this walking tour has more walking than any similar ones I've done - you cover a lot of ground in 2 1/2 hours! These tours are "free", but the guides work for tips. Make sure...

Wanted to know the basic history of Budapest as we are only here for a couple of days. Went on the 10.30am tour and even though it was raining the whole time, our guide captivated us until the end! Unfortunately can't remember our guide's name (tall with black, mid-length curly hair- so sorry we can't remember!) but she spoke amazing... More

This was an excellent and very engaging walking tour. Our guide was animated, thoughtful and at times ever quite funny. He seemed to have planned the tour so that periodically we came to benches where people could sit while he filled in relevant historical information - this was a great idea! He also interspersed his historical information with cool explanations... 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.
