Our walking tour begins at the Opera House after which we take a short ride on the Millennium Metro out to Heroes' Square and City Park. There, your guide will introduce you to Hungary's rich history and culture through its chronological line of kings. Then we walk through the park to visit the Vajdahunyad Castle (outside only), a complex built for the world fayre in 1896 displaying typical architecture found throughout Hungary.
Next, a stop off at Széchenyi Bath house (with a peek inside when open) to learn about the amazing bath culture this country has to offer. Afterwards, we 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 the street brought to culture and nobility.
After our City Park visit we head over to the St. Stephen's Basilica (outside only) before we take a break in a café 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). After our refreshment break, we head down to the riverside to see the famous blue Danube. Here we will take in the spectacular view of Gellert Hill and the Citadel, Buda Hills and the Royal Palace as we cross the river via Budapest's Chain Bridge.
For the final leg of the tour, we climb the steps up into the Buda Castle District and then wander through the old cobblestone streets and alleys to our finishing point in front of Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion. At the conclusion of the tour, the guide will help with ideas, directions and more!
Our walking tours are small personal groups and generally do not have more than 15 participants, making them interactive and personal and giving you plenty of chances to ask questions and get to know your guide and press them for local tips of where to go and what else to do.
