Walk, see, eat & drink
Two full days in Budapest?
This is enough time to discover not only Budapest's top attractions but also to look into a few lesser known corners of the city that only locals know. If you would like to get to know the Hungarian capital in detail, this is your tour!
During the presentation of the city's 2000 year long historical heritage we explore the rich architecture, experience the vast cultural and ethnical diversity, and try several home-made Hungarian delicacies. We mingle with locals and other travelers in the streets, courtyards and markets, walk a lot and use the fast and efficient local public transportation of the city, too.
Experience the special vibe of the Hungarian capital with me as your local guide!

Great tour We had rain and cold first day and Nikki adjusted for indoor and returned next day. combination of walking, tram, bus, and subway gave us a great feel for the city. Stories of her growing up behind iron curtain were incredible.
