The Absolute Walk, more than churches & castles! Recommended by all the major guide books. Our walking tour begins at the Opera House and then a short ride on the Millennium metro out to the Heroes Sq and City Park. There we learn about Hungarian history and culture through the line of kings displayed in chronological order. Then we walk through the park to visit the Vajdahunyad Castle (outside only), a complex built for the world EXPO in 1896 displaying typical architecture found throughout Hungary. Next, a stop off at Szechenyi bath house (with a peek inside when open) to learn about the amazing bath culture this country has to offer. Next we take the Millennium metro back towards the city center and stop off at the end of Andrassy Blvd. teaching you about the significance the street brought to culture and nobility.

 

Next we continue to see the central areas of Deák Square and Elizabeth square, then over to the St. Stephens Basilica (a peek inside when open) before we take a break in a café for a taste of Hungary’s famous pastry called rétes which is a traditional type of strudel. Here guests will each get two pastries and a coffee or mineral water (included in the tour price). After our refreshment break we head towards the downtown area stopping at Vaci walking street and Vorosmarty Square, then down to the famous Danube Promenade of the riverside. Here we will look at the spectacular view of Gellert hill and the Citadel, Buda Hills and the Buda Castle District as we walk along the river. We stop at the Vigado (outside) the former municipal hall with loads of historical stories and then a picturesque photo op with the little princess before crossing the famous Chain Bridge.

For the final part of the tour we climb the steps up into the Buda Castle District to the Royal Palace (outside only) and then walk through the old cobble stone streets and alleys to our finishing point in front of the 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 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.
