    Absolutely delightful
    We had a lovely time with our tour guide Bianka as we walked through the street trying traditional Hungarian delights , Langos, chimney cake, sausages and of course Strudel all delicious and generous portions. We could not have asked for a better tour and we were so full and couldn’t eat another thing. Highly recommend this tour

    Fantastic afternoon!
    Scheduled a solo tour while visiting Budapest. Eliz was our guide and she was amazing. I am originally from Budapest but she educated me on my own culture! Was a fantastic way to spend the afternoon!

    Laszlo / Leslie is a Great Guide!

    Best tour of Budapest
    This tour was amazing! Our guide Ferenc customized the tour for us to add somethings that we requested and avoid places we had been. He was knowledgeable, interesting and genuinely cared about whether we were enjoying the tour. Lunch was delicious. We learned background and facts we would have never known walking around on our own. I highly recommend this tour.

    Great tour with the best tour guide.
    We had absolutely great time with Ferenc while walking through streets of Budapest. Ferenc has in-depth knowledge about Hungarian city. He kept us comfortable all along and had organised the program which suited us the best. The lunch is sumptuous and delicious. If opportunity given, we would be happy to do another tour with Ferenc.

    Fabulous tour!!!!
    Ferenc took my husband and me on a fabulous tour of street food in Budapest. This was our first trip to Budapest and I wanted to see where and what locals ate. The food was DELICIOUS - everything we ate or drank was so good!! Ferenc was a fantastic guide!!! It was like spending several hours with a great friend who knew everything about Budapest! We loved EVERY MINUTE of this tour!! Highly recommend!

    Budapest Street Food Tour
    Had a great tour with Lazlos Very interesting Tour and Lazlos was a fantastic guide However for the price we have paid it seems poor value for money with regards to the food offered. There was nothing wrong with the food at all however the price does not give value for money

    Amazing Fools and King tour with Laszlo
    We had an amazing tour with Laszlo! All five of us in our tour were so impressed with his knowledge, wonderful stories that really brought the sites to life, and felt like we finished the tour with much more knowledge and appreciation of beautiful Budapest.

    Fantastic street food tour
    A fantastic afternoon spent with Fanni on the street food tour - she was so knowledgeable and friendly - it was much more than a food tour . Would certainly recommend her.

    Great walking tour!
    My wife and I went on a private walking tour of Budapest with Fannie. We highly recommend you to book this tour. Fannie was very prompt and met us at our hotel lobby. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about the vast history of Hungary. We had a great time and would recommend this tour and Fannie as the tour guide for anyone visiting Budapest!

    A fantastic exploration of Buda Castle and surrounds
    Lazlo (Leslie) is a brilliant tour guide! He met us punctually at our hotel and we proceded to head towards the Buda District and Castle. He told us many interesting snippets about the locality and Hungarian history. We learned about the origins of Hungary, many famous Hungarians (Rubiks Cube, the biro pen, anyone? Amongst other interesting gems)! When reached the Castle, we were able to get some fantastic Photos of the iconic Chain Bridge and the Pest Side including the equally iconic Parliament Building. Laslo shared a number of friendly anecdotes to give us an insight of Hungarian culture. We learned about their humour, their ingenuity and their romantic side! We stopped by the Mathias Fountain, a band playing traditional music and the Royal courtyard and stables with the sunset in the background. We then stopped at a lovely café for a well-deserved coffee and cake. It was so delicious! It was getting dark, but this was perfect timing to see St Mathias Church and the Bastion (it is free after 7). This was a highlight of the tour, as we were able to see the Pest side in All its glory with Parliament lit up and other attractions (the Budapest Eye). It was so beautiful! After taking more photos and we were regaled with final stories about how some Hungarian students wish for luck in their imminent exams as well as a final World War Two story. Wow! What a history, we needed more time to explore (we didn’t get to the underground caves for instance)! With that, the tour (alas) was over. We thoroughly enjoyed the few hours spent with Lazlo (again, highly recommended) and he escorted us back to a convenient central spot in Pest to continue our enjoyment of this beautiful city! Thank you Lazlo for bringing Budapest alive for us!

    It's simply wonderful.
    Norbert was our guide, and he was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable, kind, patient, and good fun. We had so much food! Much more than when we done a tour in Belfast. I would highly recommend this tour. When in Budapest!!!

    Could have been better.
    The tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. My recommendation (and that of my fellow travelers) was the tour could have been improved with more tasting stops with a smaller amount of food at each place. Four stops in 3 hours made for more of a city tour than a food tour.

    Rebekah Gave Us An Amazing Private Tour
    We had a group of 4 for a private tour with Rebekah. She started the tour by meeting us at our hotel, which was a great way to begin. She continually amazed us with her knowledge of the history of Buda and Pest, and was very enthusiastic throughout the tour. We asked a ton of questions and she was happy to answer all of them. We saw all the sites that we were hoping to see and more. The strudel and coffee break was also very nice. I would not hesitate to recommend Budapest Urban Walks to others.

Definitely worth a visit! Not seen anything like it before. Tends to be a young crowd but when you see the place it makes sense to why. Open till late and generally a good vibe. One of the only places we re visited over our stay.

We have never seen anything like the ruins and bars we saw in Budapest, Germany. The tour leader was excellent. She went out of her way to get us a taxi so we could go back to the ship on the Danube. This was one of our best tours.

The ruin bars in Hungary are again another prime attraction for people that visit wishing to indulge in some authentic Hungarian experiences!! These bars are concealed away from view by traditional markets selling many different products where behind many doors is a masterpiece of breakfast and bars. You can have a breakfast buffet for around £7 per person (English money) and there is so much available, from fruits and meat to cakes and multicoloured cheese with bread.
The walls are all written on many people that have visited the bars which adds to the atmosphere as well as the art all over the place. As much as I would love to describe these bars in more detail, there really is no way to depict these individual collections of mastery!! You really have to visit to know what I mean.
Love!!!!

This area is full of bars with many different themes. All are decorated in wild decor, too unusual to describe. There are different rooms with different bars, a wine bar, outdoor area...lots of fun.

What an awesome evening!!! We booked to be part of a group on Monday 11th Dec but our flight was cancelled and we were not able to make it. When I asked if we could reschedule there were no group tours available but the wonderful and brilliant Ferenc did not want us to miss out on this tour which is one of his great passions so he arranged us a private one.
What a perfect evening we had! Ferenc took us to a selection of the best ruin bars, explained their histories and individual eccentricities while teaching us about Hungarian culture, language and history as we went. Ferenc’ knowledge of and passion for the ruin bars brought them to life. The cost of the walk included a few drinks and before long it felt more like we were out on the town with a really good friend.
I cannot recommend the ruin bar walk highly enough but I suggest you try them sooner rather than later as the inevitable march of commercialisation and gentrification is threatening their continued existence. Once these wonderful, vibrant places are gone, they will be lost for good.
Likewise I cannot recommend Ferenc highly enough. He is a consummate tour guide. If you’re lucky enough to have him as your guide you’re guaranteed a good tour.

Such a great experience made all that more memorable by the most amazing tour guide, O'Dea. She was warm, witty, full of knowledge and pride about her beloved city. Unique bars in a city of great people and food. Highly recommend Odea of you are able. I would adopt her if I could. She was truly amazing and was more than you could ever ask for!!

My friends and I decided to visit Budapest last year to celebrate a birthday. It wouldn’t have been completed without this ruin bar tour. Our tour guide was very friendly and energetic!

Me and my boyfriend visited Budapest and booked this tour with Budapest Urban Walks because my sister recommended it. We were very pleased and enjoyed much of the nightlife experience! Definitely worth it :)
