Classical Budapest Sightseeing Tour

The tour offers you an overall view of Budapest. Two options are available: 4 or 8 hours. Of course, there will be several stops to take pictures in both. The 8-hour tour is more detailed. We can start on either the Buda or the Pest side of the Danube, depending on your hotel’s location.

This tour is suitable for everybody, whether you have only a little time or lots of time in Budapest. If you are not here for long, an 8 hour-tour can help you get to know the city very well. While if your stay here is longer, you can get a real in-depth understanding of the city that you can then follow up in your own time.

Sights on the Pest side:

Heroes’ Square –  a perfect place to start the tour where you can learn about Hungarian history. The more you know about the history, the better you will understand the locals.

Museum of Fine Arts, Art Gallery,
