Free General Budapest Walking Tour will introduce you to this extraordinary city in a heartbeat. You will learn how Budapest, through centuries of turmoil and suffering, became one of the most beautiful cities in Europe: “Paris of the East”, “Pearl of the Danube”, “City of Spas” …  You’ll experience grand squares and boulevards of Pest and stunning views from the Buda Castle; you will hear local legends, learn about Hungarian food and drinks, and what makes locals tick. We’ll see Andrassy Avenue, St. Stephen Basilica, Liberty Square, Parliament, Danube Bend, Buda Castle, Royal Palace, Mathias Church, Fisherman Bastion, etc. You’ll get recommendations what else to check out, where to eat, where to go out, what to avoid.

Due to reconstruction of the Chain Bridge, we might only stay on the Pest side. If you would like to include Buda Castle, at the moment we have to take metro to cross the river. This will affect how long the tour will be.

Meeting time: 11:00AM (flexible).

Meeting point: In front of ST.STEPHENS BASILICA, Budapest, Szent István tér 1, 1051 Hungary

Duration: 2.5 – 3.5 hours

Language: English

    Dive in to the depths of Budapest’s famous landmarks! It should be this tour’s tagline. The guide had so much information and fun facts, we love it so much. You personally see the classic structures and you learned about their meaningful stories. Just amazing! And what is a memorable travel without out interacting with locals and trying their local specialties. It was also a surprise that their products are very affordable, so nice! Of course, the endless picture taking. the tour wouldn’t be complete without it.

    We are glad we tried this Budapest Free Walking Tour of Be Originals. The tour was organized and nicely executed. Worthy for travelers like us and maybe for you too if you will try it too. It’s nice, I guarantee it. 🙂

    Exploring different cultures through travel is really nice. If you tour places make sure to travel with a tour organization like this. You will learn a lot about the places meaningful histories through their amazing guide and we had George on this one. He has spoonful of knowledge about this tour and all the places it covers and that’s really great. We didn’t only witness the beauty of each landmark, we also learned their historic stories. We had a lot of fun too because locals are nice. We tried some local foods and brought some amazing local products and was surprised because prices here are really affordable. This was great tour experience and we owe it the team of Budapest free walking tour. Kudos guys!

    I give 5 stars because it was a cool tour. We had taken a lot pf picture because the place were good, somewhat sacred, then I learned that it was really sacred, thanks to our awesome tour guide, George! He’s the man! I like the fun stories more and the drinks all the way and other activities in between, It was a good strategy because the tours does a lot of walking so they need to console us. But it was definitely a good tour! It’s worth it and fun.

    I was hesitant at first because we will do a lot of walking, don’t like it very much but can’t backed out, my mom already booked it but as the tour progress, I was enjoying it. Our guide George is a great one. He has so many information about all the landmarks we visited and a lot of fun stories too. We also have cool co-travelers in the group so I had fun. The places were great and the stops were in place. I like it! I take back my first bad impression. Should I believe now that really “moms knows best”? Yeah, fun tour. Budapest Free Walking Tour is the name which my mom can’t even memorize. Hahaha I recommend you to try this tour, it’s good. Budapest tours is good!

    George was a fantastic tour guide!

    He took us right through the heart of central Budapest and really brought the past to life, through his broad understanding of history, politics and culture. I definitely felt like it was a worthwhile 2 hours, and feel I now have a much better understanding of how and where Budapest (and Hungary in general) overall fit into the larger history within which the city and people have been (and are) situated.

    He was also very personable and funny, and was patient in answering all of our questions, as well as recommending some great places to sample some authentic Hungarian cuisine. We already went to one place and it was fantastic! Can’t wait to try out his other suggestions.

    Would highly recommend!

I have been doing walking tours in Budapest for more than 5 years. I love history, architecture, art, good food and wine. I love meeting people from different countries and backgrounds. I adore this city and if you join one of my tours, you'll find out why.
