Itinerary

The tour begins at the Opera House and then a short ride on the Millennium metro out to the Heroes' Square and City Park.  Here you'll get a great introduction to Hungary's rich history and culture through the stories of its great kings.  Then, the group walks through City Park to visit Vajdahunyad Castle (outside only), a complex built for the 1896 World Fair displaying typical architecture found throughout Hungary.

The next stop is at Szechenyi Baths (with a peek inside when open) to learn about the amazing bath culture this country has to offer, after which you'll take the Millennium Metro back towards the city center and stop off at the end of Andrassy Boulevard where you'll hear about the significance that street to the city's nobility.  

The group will head over to see St. Stephen's Basilica (outside only) before taking a break in a cafe for a taste of Hungary's famous pastry called "retes" which is a traditional type of strudel.  Here guests will each get two homemade pastries and a coffee or soft drink (included in the tour price).  After that refreshment break, it's time to head down to the riverside to see the famous blue Danube.  Take in the spectacular view of Gellert Hill and the Citadel, Buda Hills and the Royal Palace as the group crosses the river via Budapest's Chain Bridge.

For the final leg of the tour, you'll climb the steps up into the Buda Castle District and then wander through the old cobblestone streets and alleys to the tour's finishing point in front of the Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion.  At the conclusion of the tour, your guide will help with ideas, directions and more.

These walking tours run with small groups and generally do not have more than 15 participants.  This makes them interactive and personal and gives you plenty of chances to ask questions and get to know your guide.  You can also hit them up for local tips and hints of where to go and what else to do.
