Full description
Discover the most iconic locations in Budapest on this walking tour of the inner city of Pest. Start your stroll in Marcius 15 Square and admire the Gothic Medieval cathedral of the Great Blessed Lady. Walk along the Duna Corso river promenade and enjoy the beautiful view over the Danube, its bridges, and the Castle of Buda on the opposite side. Pass by the spectacular dance palace Pesti Vigado, and see the historical Gerbeaud Cafe in Vorosmarty Square. Take a stroll through Elizabeth Park and see Budapest Eye, the largest Ferris wheel in Europe. After a short walk, you will arrive at one of the highlights of the tour: St Stephen’s Basilica, with its monumental dome and colonnade.  Continue through the traditional pedestrian streets of the city and see the cute statue of Mr. Safe who will definitely make you smile. Next, arrive at Liberty Square where you will learn about Budapest's traumatic past as a center of Nazi occupation and Communist oppression.  Finish your tour in Kossuth Square and admire the sights surrounding the majestic Hungarian Parliament building. Hear stories of dictatorship and the 1956 revolution. Afterwards, you can pay a visit to the poignant Shoes on the Danube Bank monument or enjoy a stroll along the banks of the river.

Noemi was a fantastic tour guide. She explained the history of Budapest well and was happy to answer any questions we had. She arrived on time and took us around downtown Pest but also highlighting key sights on the Buda sign. Thank you for a wonderful start to our trip

We had a wonderful walk about with our tour guide Noemi. We went through all the mentioned sights of the city and more with plenty of history and cool facts to talk about . She gave us a pretty good taste of the history of the place , was really kind and helpful. She recommended us places to eat traditional food, have great coffee and dessert. She even helped us find a place to get our rapid tests for Covid , in order for us to be able to fly back home . I honestly thank you for everything! I really hope we get the chance to meet again and maybe explore some other part of Budapest!
