We can’t say how your day will end, but when it begins with joining one of our local Budapest hosts, we know that everything in between will be amazing. You’ll weave your way through winding roads and leafy boulevards, discovering glorious palaces, ancient castles, trendy cafes, boutiques and opulent Neo-renaissance mansions.

Visit the awe-inspiring Buda Castle, or stroll along the banks of the Danube where you can explore the Fisherman’s Bastion. Pass the lush park of Margaret Island as you head on over to the Hungarian Parliament Building or dig deep to uncover the wonders of the up and coming Józsefváros district and lively Ferencváros.

We’ll always make sure there’s time to indulge in the tasty street food and restaurant classics that Budapest locals love, like làngos, a deep fried bread dough topped with sour cream and cheese, and kürtöskalàcs, a sweet golden brown, spiral shaped pastry. Spend the day as you would with a friend: chatting, laughing, eating and taking in the atmosphere of a truly magnificent city.

Reviews for this experience

Best Tour ever

My guide was so great, he knows more history of Hungary than most teachers. He was kind, considerate & caring on a hot day in August 2019. I would do it all over again in a heart beat ! Thanks to you

Reviews for Budapest

A really interesting tour

A really interesting tour of the Jewish quarter with lots of history and a visit to an orthodox Synagogue. Richard was really excellent - tremendously knowledgeable and informative, perhaps not surprisingly, given that he has a degree in history. He even managed to read some inscriptions in Hebrew! Another excellent tour with City Unscripted following others than have been equally good and all very reasonably priced. I am a big fan and it will be my first port of call at any new city.

A fun food tour!

Balazs was a charming and knowledgeable host. We ate some amazing local foods and he shared on Budapest’s history and culture. Many food tours have meeting locations and limited starting times but with this tour your guide will meet you at the time and location that is convenient for you. I thought that was great. Balazs, thank you for introducing us to Budapest! We love your city!
