With beautiful Baroque buildings risen up during the Hungarian capital’s 19th-century “golden age” and elegant boulevards that have inspired the nickname “the Paris of the East”, Budapest is beauty personified – but much of the city’s charm lies in its grit, forged under years of communist rule. In Budapest, opulent, century-old mansions and cobbled medieval streets exist alongside WWII buildings riddled with bullet holes and “ruin bars” – clubs and drinking holes housed inside the crumbling courtyards of dilapidated pre-war buildings. In a city where modern and ancient history are both so tangible (Budapest dates back to the Stone Age), the list of things to do is incredibly varied. View Roman and Renaissance architecture, stroll along the banks of the sparkling Danube, “take the waters” in the city’s abundance of natural hot springs that have been used for centuries – or experience this living museum’s contemporary attractions: its famous nightlife scene, boho boroughs, and fantastic food.

Whether you have a full day, half a day, or just three hours, explore breathtaking buildings, beautiful boulevards, and bohemian boroughs on our unforgettable city tours of Budapest. Led by a local guide who’s intimately familiar with their city, our private tours in Budapest uncover the hidden haunts and lesser-known landmarks of Hungary’s stunning capital. On a private tour of Budapest, the city opens itself up for exploration beyond its top tourist sights. From Roman and Renaissance architecture to an abundance of natural hot springs, the city is brimming with truly incredible attractions – but our personalized tours of Budapest also let you see the city through a local lens. Tangible Hungarian history is illustrated by bullet-hole-riddled walls, medieval streets, and ramshackle ruin bars, but some of the best things to do in Budapest are the modern pastimes of the people who call it home. On a walking tour, you’ll blend in with the locals at street food stalls and charismatic neighborhoods off the tourist trail. A private tour with City Unscripted won’t get you caught in a tourist trap – simply tell us what a dream Budapest experience looks like to you, and we’ll make it happen!
