About
There is much to love about Budapest beyond the cafés, spas and the ruin bars. It is encouraged that all travelers to Budapest devote plenty of time to exploring life in the maze of inner city streets, the elegant late-19th/early-20th century villas on the grand boulevards, the bridges connecting Buda and Pest, and the beautiful Danube promenade which cuts through the center of town. This 4-hour guided walking tour of the city shows you the best of Budapest.

What to expect
  • Book your desired tour option and meet your guide in the Pest district in the mid-afternoon. Start with a glass of sparkling wine and then set off into Pest’s handsome streets by foot. Walking is the best way to uncover the highlights, history, and culture of Hungary’s capital and find hidden corners that many visitors miss. On route, hear about Hungary’s and Budapest’s turbulent past, and get inside scoops on daily life in today’s city from your guide. Explore the Pest Palace district and pass the Hungarian National Radio Building, hearing about its part in Hungary’s 1956 revolution. Then, see noteworthy sights including the National Museum, Andrassy Avenue, St. Stephen’s Basilica, and Opera House. Swing by the monuments at Heroes Square, ride Europe’s oldest metro line, and explore the former Jewish Quarter, viewing the Grand Synagogue, the biggest in Europe, and other spots that once formed the heart of the Jewish district. Enjoy a coffee at a popular café and bisit the Danube’s banks to admire the sights. See the Shoes on the Danube Memorial and absorb the sweeping views of the Parliament, Chain Bridge, and Buda Castle across the water. Your tour ends here when you guide departs.

Executive Summary: Take This Tour!
Sep 2020
My tour guide was Endre - charming, cheerful, punctual, well-travelled and with ridiculously good English. The private tours are customisable - we customised mine so much that the four hour tour took nearly six fascinating and enjoyable hours. We also “customised” coffee and cake into Villányi Franc!
You’ll cover a lot of ground on this tour but it’s not physically demanding thanks to clever tactical use of public transport.
Endre was particularly good at highlighting the subtle details and history that one would otherwise miss - particularly how the different epochs are represented in the architecture (often even within the same building).

So glad you enjoyed your tour with Endre! We agree that an afternoon with Endre is the best way to start off a trip to Budapest! Hope to see you again.

This was the best experience we had during our visit to Budapest! Our guide Angela was knowledgeable and professional, and during our 4+ walking tour we visited many of the districts of this beautiful city. This is a must do when you visit!!!!!

Such a knowledgable guide and genuinely interested in our tour goals. We learnt so much about Budapest’s history and the impact on its society and culture. I couldn’t recommend this highly enough. So pleased we didn’t choose a cheaper alternative (we saw so many 30+ headcount tours; how can that work?)

A wonderful Budapest experience - thanks to ANA:)
Dec 2019
This tour kicked off at the 'Tasting Table', right where our 'Culinary' tour ended - a brilliant segue from one tour to the next - and both so very different. On our Budapest Grand Walk, our tour guide, Ana, was simply the BEST! Her general knowledge and overall passion for her hometown was infectious. We loved hearing so much of Hungary's history as we weaved our way all over 'Pest'. We now absolutely love Budapest, thanks to Ana, and look forward to returning again one day. THANK YOU!

Thank you for another kind feedback Martina :) We are very proud of our beautiful city and all the amazing guides who we work with, Anna is definitely one! Perhaps next time you'd be interested in seeing more of Hungary through our wine tours to the countryside. Evi Faiola Reservation Manager

Grand Walk with private guide
Nov 2019 • Couples
Guide was well informed and very helpful. He gave us an insight into the local politics and everyday life in Budapest as well as the history. We went on the underground which was very interesting and well run.
The tour was good value.

Amazing food tour and wine dinner!
Sep 2019
We did both the food tour and Thursday evening wine dinner during our recent trip to Budapest and loved both! We had Aggie as a tour guide for the walking tour. She was wonderful, and very knowledgeable and passionate about her hometown. We had the opportunity to try a wide variety of authentic Hungarian food and wines. The wine dinner was fabulous, great conversations with other guests, and excellent information about the wines we were tasting. The winemaker actually attended the dinner too, which was fabulous. The sommelier allowed us to taste the wines in the new 6-bottle packages that they offer for sale in the US - all were excellent, and I ordered a package as soon as we got home! Really, really wonderful experience - worth including in any Budapest itinerary. We look forward to returning to the beautiful city of Budapest, and trying other tours offered by Taste Hungary! Also hoping to join some of their future DC area events!

Outstanding tour!
Aug 2019
Really enjoyed this tour! Unfortunately, I've forgotten the tour guide's name (Lilla perhaps?) but she was delightful. Very personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. She had planned to stop and have a drink early in the tour but because we were coming off a food tour, she quickly adjusted the schedule and postponed the drink for later. She was extremely knowledgeable of the history of the city, and shared freely as we walked around Pest. We saw all of the major sights, and some lesser known as well - Hungarian Parliament Building, Shoes on the Danube, Heroes Square, Liberty Square, Opera House, St. Stephens Basilica, Jewish Qtr, Hungarian National Radio Building, and more. We stopped and had a beer at City Park, and then a delicious dessert and coffee at a nice little cafe. She even provided restaurant suggestions (we went later, it was delicious!).

Awesome! Fantastic was to learn about Budapest.
Jun 2019 • Couples
Lilla was an amazing guide; enthusiastic, informative, and funny. So much beauty and history in this wonderful city, and so good to have someone explain why and how Budapest has developed over 1000+ years. Just the two of us on our tour. Highly recommend the small tours, this one in particular, and especially if you get Lilla as your guide!

Budapest Grand Walk
This was a great small group tour. Just one other couple with us and our excellent guide Andras. Budapest is full of beautiful architecture (even in the pouring rain) and Andras made it even better. He was very informative, super friendly and lots of fun. He also gave us lots of recommendations for the rest of our time in Budapest. Highly recommend this tour or any tour with Andras.
