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.

Eva was really nice, adapting our tour and show us around in the rain, giving us good tips on where to go and where to eat. We followed some of her suggestions and they were really good.

It was a pleasant experience! The tour itself was thorough but, most importantly, our guide was very charismatic and knew how to captivate us. We have definitely learned a lot about the Hungarian history.
