Tour details

Budapest, especially Pest has never been homogeneous – thinking of the all ethnic groups and the architecture. During the Habsburg times, there were more German-speaking inhabitants living in today’s downtown than Hungarians, let alone other nationalities… Later on the ratio has changed, but all these different eras left their mark on the buildings, too. In one street you can see Classical, Art- Nouveau, Socialist style as well we few modern buildings. BUT buildings are NOT made of stones… they are made of STORIES and formed by PEOPLE.

Sights included (examples)

  • St Stephen’s Basilica (interior + dome)
  • Andrassy avenue
  • Hungarian House of Art Nouveau
It is you who design the tour, we build it up based on your requests and even during the tour we can alter the route, skip or add sights
Review by one of our happy guests

Szia Dear Zsófi,

image_sh-compWe had a lovely and certainly a memorable time in your beautiful city. Thanks to you, we got a very good first impression of the city to our orientation. It was so nice to hear personal views and stories about the places. Also your photos and pictures enlightened many things. It was very informative and you gave us many tips also to do on our own.

  • We visited Saint Stephans basilica and went up to the cupola, great views with soft knees :-).
  • We visited the Mathias basilica and the Fisherman’s bastion, it was a sunny day and Budapest was looking so fabulous, even the Duna was all blue like they say in the song.
  • We visited Cafe Lotz and Alexandra bookshop, fantastic interior decoration.
  • We visited the Great Market Hall, it was impressive: so many delicious eating points and billions of hungarian salamis downstairs and so many blouses, scarfs, bags, everything upstairs. We visited Szimpla ruin pub, it was like a fairytale scenery made by a wizard out of old junk. We visited the enormous City Park, they were also preparing an Ice skating track there. We had dinner in the Strudel House, it was very tasty, nice surroundings and nice service. We also made a Danube Dinner cruise in the birthday evening, the food was good, the musicians too and the service very pleasant.

…among many other things and places… We liked all these very much, hard to put any of them first. Your guidance was crucial, without it we would have missed many of these things. We will be back, hopefully in the summer next time. Have an enjoyable Christmas too dear Zsófi, all the best to you and your dearest ones.

Nagyon szépen köszönöm!
