We always do the free walking tours if available where ever we are. You get a nice overview of the area by a person who knows the area, usually a college kid with an interest in history. Tips are accepted at the end of the tour if you think it was worth it. But, hey, it's a college kid trying... More

This is a great thing to do when visiting Budapest. It's a fab free tour of the city and can help with locations and things to do/see on your trip here. The meeting place is very easy to find and the tour guides were very informative about history, culture, food and drink of the city with some good tips of... More

We went on the Budapest walking tour which includes most of the major sites. Our friendly guide Greg was funny as well as extremely knowledgable in local customs, culture and history. I found the history part especially interesting. The tour went for about 2 and a half hours and we stopped 2/3 in for a drink and toilet break which... More

Katalin took us on an interesting walk through Budapest. She gave us great facts and insight to all the major landmarks. What I enjoyed most is the fact she kept the information concise and easy to understand. She didn't rabble on and drown us in dates, but rather dropped fun facts and even some Hungarian language tips. I enjoyed the... More

This afternoon 3/12/16 I went on the Jewish tour with Ursula. Wow! What a fantastic tour guide. I really enjoyed it. Words won't do it any justice so I'll stop and recommend you go and take the tour for yourself! Thanks so much Ursula.

Zoltan was our guide for the 10:30 Original Tour. He was handsome, witty and full of great information. He was enthusiastic all while herding a good size group and not losing anyone. Not only did he share history, but banking, subway and restaurant lessons. The 2.5 hours flew by and he enjoy it sooooo much we went back the next... More

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us and for showing us your perfect sense of humor. It was a pretty nice walk and... More

We did the 2.30pm general tour with Szabi and he was great, really enthusiastic and informative. Lots of fantastic trivia about Hungary's history and new the sites very well. However it could have been shorter as by 4pm we were freezing cold. Would recommend you wrap up very warmly if going in Winter, especially if you make it all the... 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.
