What you'll do
Discover cultural Budapest beyond the famous landmarks and touristy districts, and find local spots on the road less travelled which are difficult for visitors to find. Check out boutique shops, markets, contemporary art galleries and underground clubs in this close-knit community.
With a Local Host by your side to navigate, walk along back-alleyways, drink craft lagers in microbreweries run by “Gypsy brewers” and soak up the street style. Let your host introduce you to interesting places that are hives of alternative activity such as gallery spaces with squat-like basements that have become an institution in Budapest’s nightlife.
Explore Budapest’s best vintage shops and markets, cutting edge fashion stores, independent niche boutiques, pop ups, vinyl record shops and the tastiest street food markets.
Get to know your Local Host as they lead you through the labyrinth of streets to discover the real Budapest, gaining priceless insight into how to see the city like a local during the rest of your trip.
What to expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
How this benefits you
With a Local by your side, you’ll be able to go beyond the superficial and connect with Budapest and its people, getting to know what truly makes the city unique.
Get relevant advice to help you save time and money during the rest of your trip; using local insight you’ll be able to get around, skip tourist pitfalls and experience life like a local.
See the main attractions with the benefit of local knowledge, but also explore off-the-beaten path areas where the Locals really live.
Our Local Hosts can all speak English, but many also speak Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German and many other languages so they can connect with you culturally as well as with your personality.
