Beautiful Budapest, you make it so easy to fall in love with you. Especially if it’s your first trip here, you’ll be weak at the knees. So to orientate yourself, discover the best ways to get around and learn a local trick or two about where you could visit (and when, and how, and what will I eat while I’m there), join one of our local Budapest hosts.

You can pick their brains and ask 101 questions as you explore a pocket of the city together - along the way you’ll see some iconic sights like Buda Castle and the Hungarian Parliament Building, stop for a coffee and Chimney Cake or a beer and get the scoop on making the most of your time in Budapest.

Our host just can’t wait to share their home city with you and it will only be a matter of time before you are feeling right at home!

Reviews for this experience

Brief experience in town with a private host.

Agnes was a great host. Cheerful, friendly, she knew a lot of stuff and of course Budapest is fantactic. Book her and for sure you will have a great time and you will know some more of this great city.

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!

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
