A full day exploring the city


This tour includes all the must-see places!

You will have the opportunity to explore the sights of Budapest with me and get to hear insider information about everything.
Plenty of time to take photos, and get lost a little bit in the less touristy places. . . To bring your camera is a must, as we will visit unforgettable panoramic spots during the day.

Melinda was an excellent guide for a full day Budapest tour. Her overview of Hungary's history was crystal clear and helped us put what she showed us for the rest of the day into context. Melinda was personable, sensitive to our interests and highly informative. Thank you!
