Private active walking tour with most scenic photo stops
You will take part in a private walking tour of Budapest that includes the most beautiful views, and some of the most amazing buildings on the two banks of the Danube River. You will see several majestic bridges connecting the Buda side with the Pest side of the city. The tour concentrates to two areas of the downtown: the Pest side Danube promenade where you will see the stunning Parliament building and the Unesco World Heritage listed view of the bridges and palaces along the river. And second of the Buda side Castle District where you will take a stroll in the former royal gardens, see the Royal Palace, some medieval cobbled streets and finally the cherry on top of the cake: the Matyas Church surrounded by the Fishermens' Bastion that looks like a fairy tale scenery.
This tour is ideal if you enjoy walking, want to see more details of the architecture, and like taking pictures from the best angles.
I'll meet you either at your hotel (if located close to the tour route) or at a spot by the Danube Promenade.

Oh man, we had an educational and fun day with Balint. Our group of 6 was very impressed with his knowledge of the city both past and present. He is such a nice and personable guy that we had absolutely no trouble getting quickly acquainted with him and his beloved city. We had a remarkable 3 hours of fun with him on the Buda side. He was kind enough to get us a lunch reservation as well. We had such a great time! Thank you, Balint!
