Budapest is not just the sum of its parts- it is a feeling you get as you wander its charming streets and soak up its lively community spirit. Granted, you might not be able to tick off every sight in a single day but one of our friendly local Budapest hosts can help you tap into its vibrant energy!

Join them on an adventure as you wander the streets, where stunning architectural diversity makes a colorful backdrop of the city. You could visit the awe-inspiring Buda Castle, stroll past the lush park of Margaret Island as you head on over to the Hungarian Parliament Building and indulge in a trip to the Great Market Hall or Szèna tèr market, where you can meander through the many stalls and get lost in its street food culture.

Imagine treating yourself to pogàcsa, a classic type of savoury snack topped with cheese or pumpkin seeds, or lángos, an indulgent, fried dough topped with sour cream and cheese. But there’s always room for dessert, or even another meal (why not, you’re on holiday) - so stop by a grandiose teahouse or traditional restaurant too. You can’t experience it all in a day, but you can sure try.

    • Enjoy 8 hours with a host, who will show you some of the places which make Budapest so remarkable
    • Tick off your ‘must see’ famous sites in a day then step of the tourist trail and uncover some secret spots too
    • Eat and drink great local food at places that are loved by locals, picking up street food or stopping in a local eatery
    • Pause to indulge in some delicious sweet treats at a traditional tea house
    • Get tips from your host (over a coffee or beer, perhaps) for the rest of your stay in Budapest
    • This experience will be personalized to you!
