Budapest Private Tours

Budapest tours, Budapest private tours, personal tours, ToursByLocals
Budapest has been hailed as the most beautiful city in Central Europe. With its abundance of Baroque, Neo-Classical and Art Nouveau buildings, and its enviable position on the shores of the scenic Danube, it's easy to see why.

Enjoy a Budapest tour with a local guide who is eager to show you both the city's grand sights and its simple pleasures - such as sharing a bowl of goulash with friends.

The best way to start a tour of Budapest is by taking the funicular railway up to Castle Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing many of Budapest's medieval monuments. Make sure to spend some time exploring the city's many world class museums, such as the Hungarian National Gallery, with its immense collection of Hungarian art. Your guide will encourage you to climb up inside the 300-foot dome of St. Stephen's Basilica for spectacular views of the surrounding city.

Your guide hopes your Budapest tour will help you see this vibrant city through the eyes of a local.
Tour Guide Legal Requirements
If the nature of the tour is that the guide is 'interpreting the cultural and natural heritage of an area', Hungary requires the guide have a guiding license. A person giving tours such as the 'best nightlife spots', 'shopping and fashion tour' or 'restaurant tour' for example, does not require a license. This definition follows the European standard for tour guiding (CEN).

Licensed Tourist Guides are the only professionals permitted to conduct tours in all sites and museums within a city. Licensed guides are required in those areas where the local authorities state that one of them is mandatory.

To become a Licensed Tourist Guide, candidates must pass an examination given by the local public tourist authorities. report error

All ToursByLocals guides have met our ToursByLocals Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
