Discover the best of the city with me

This tour is ideal for those, who like walking and don't mind getting around using the public transport. It shows you around the whole city and covers all the major sights. Also, it's the best choice for orientation and to know your way around.
Wherever we can, we will discover the sights on foot, then we will hop on a tram or a bus or the historical Millenium Underground. Budapest has great public transportation which makes this tour very enjoyable and cost-effective.
To make it as convenient for you as can be, of course I will take care of the passes, so you don't have to worry about that.

I can give you a lot of recommendations regarding programmes, places, etc. for the rest of your stay so that you can spend your time the way you want and avoid the tourist traps. The passes that we buy are valid for longer period so you can use them later on, as well.


Based on your interests the tours can vary, but in general we will cover all the must-sees:

- Andrassy Avenue, which is part of the Unesco World heritage, with the Opera House and the neo-renessaince palaces
- Heroes Square and the surrounding city park with the famous Szechenyi Spa and a fairy-tale like castle
- Saint Stephen's cathedral and its charming neighbourhood
- Explore the historical Castle district with the Matthias Church and the Fisherman's Bastion with a magnificent view, which became emblematic of Budapest
- during the tour we can stop for a coffee or cake any time, in this case I will take you to one of the most beautiful and historical cafes of the city

Don't hesitate to contact me before the tour, so I can fully customize it to your needs and interests!

A Recent Review of this tour

Four of us (all seniors) booked Melinda for two days, one day Buda and one day Pest. She is an excellent guide, very professional, with detailed knowledge of her city. We had lunch with her both days and truly enjoyed her company. Melinda also went out of her way to help us with Budapest hotels and transportation to Prague, our next stop. She has our highest recommendation! M. Vaughan
