My tours are always tailored to your needs and interest so do not hesitate to let me know your special request when you contact me.
I pick you up at your accomodation and (if you choose the minivan tour) we start the tour on the Gellért Hill from where you can enjoy the most beautiful view of the city while we are walking by the Citadel and the Statue of Liberty.
Then we visit the Castle Hill with the Royal Palace, the historic town of Buda with the Matthias Church and Fishermen’s Bastion.
On the Pest side we will see one of the best known landmarks of Budapest, the Parliament. In this area there are also a lot of memorials from the 1956’s uprising. Have you visited many Catholic churches? I am sure, you did! I think I can show you something interesting you might not have seen yet anywhere else but in St Stephen Basilica. We will see the Great Synagogue with the Raul Wallenberg Memorial Garden (Holocaust Memorial: The Tree of Life). We walk/drive along the elegant Andrassy Avenue. Have you got any idea what there were around this area in the second half of the 19th century when these magnificent buildings were built? I tell you about it as we will be walking to see the Opera House and to the Heroes’ Square where the statues give a sum-up of Hungary’s more than 1100 years of history.
Budapest is also called the Spa City thanks to its 123 springs and numerous thermal baths. On our tour I will show you the Gellért and the Széchenyi Spa Baths.
During our tour we will stop to have lunch in a restaurant at your choice, I will give you recommendation. (The lunch is not included in the price of the tour.)
