I'm an American and have lived in Budapest for 10+ years. I had 2 American friends coming to visit me and I decided that we would all benefit from having a guide who grew up here and has lived through the social and economic changes the people of Hungary have faced and face today, and who could tell us about...

My husband and I were ending a Danube River cruise and extended our stay in Budapest so I could try to visit the villages where my grandparents were born. Our neighbor recommended Rockhoppers after using them as a private guide for 3 days in Budapest last year. Well, about a month before we left the States,I got in touch we... More

My wife and I booked a full day private tour. After finding out that Zoltan was not going to be our guide, we were a bit apprehensive, but Kalliope turned out to be great. As a Budapest native who is quite opinionated, she was both knowledgeable and interesting. We learned a lot more than the superficial facts at the major... More

We were 4 friends who spend a good part of our friday together with Zoltan. We had asked for a special tour and we got what we asked for and more. Being a small group - it was more of a dialog where we could asked questions and get detailed answers. I highly recommend you try it and remember to... More

Zoltan was our guide - fantastic experience. Using wry humor, intelligence and interaction with us, we spent an enlightening, engaged and super interesting day. Also we had some great cuisine and local Palinke (brandy). I highly recommend to anyone seeking in-depth knowledge, some off-the-tourist map sightseeing and interesting conversation as well. Thank you Zoltan!

We had a most interesting day in Budapest with Zoltan. Zoltan takes the time to find out what you want to see before starting your tour. We had already done a bus tour on our river cruise and wanted to gain some insight, one on one, with a local. Zoltan is interesting, knowledgable, entertaining and irreverent, which is just our...

I took a kind of last minute trip to Budapest. I didn't know much about the city, and felt the best way to learn would be get a private tour from an experienced local. Zoltan was just that. I got a little lost trying to find him in the beginning of the trip (long story haha) but our time together... More

We were a group of 9 persons who had a 3 hour tour of the quarters round the big synagogue. Zoltan was a fantastic guide: gave us interesting facts, moving stories and personal anecdotes. We saw well known monuments but also hidden gems. He could answer all our questions.

We visited Budapest with two children. Zoltan was our guide for two half-days. We met in the morning and toured for 4 hours for two days. He made sure to show us all that we were interested in while also paying attention to how much walking the kids could take. When he noticed they were getting tired, he proposed using... 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.
