This tour did not cover Budapest history. The focus was on how to use public transportation, recommended food, and an emphasis on the party spots. We did not learn about the buildings we were walking past except for some brief names and a five minute...More

It was part of our hop on and off tour offer. It was good and informative. It's better to have a guide in the Castle tour. Else you might be walking aimlessly.

I did 3 tours with these guys and I was in Budapest for 2 days only. Shame on the fist evening it was pissing down with rain and I decided not to do the evening tour. Petra and Greg were lovely. Cheers guys.

Budapest walk doesn't cover Budapest history or architecture, instead our guide (Greg) spent all the time talking about food, public transportation instead of pointing at the buildings and monuments we passed by. We were very disappointed.

Firstly our tour guide was excellent in her role, she was enthusiastic and engaged with the large number of people on her tour. We walked a fair amount and it was great as an orientation exercise rather than the usual historical content of other walks....More

Like free walking tours in other cities, the price of the tour is determined by the traveller after the tour in the form of tips. The free walking tour in Budapest certainly did not disappoint. Lara, our tour guide, was fun and informative, bringing us...More

The tour makes it's money from tips. On Viator, these tours go for at least $39 US per person, so this was a bargain. There is always a big group attending as it's "Free". There are usually 3 guides and they separate you into groups....More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

Eddie was absolutely fabulous everything a guide should be. Knowledgeable, clear, friendly and very informative. We did the walking tour yesterday and I was so so impressed. I'm married to a blue badge London guide so I expect the best and Eddie gave the best and more. Superb thank you
