Unique Experience

Budapest
English, German, Hungarian (Native), Romanian (Native)
3 hours
Private tour (only you and your group)
Up to 4 people

A city is most beautiful in the evening and during the night. This tour is for those among you, who want to experience Budapest during the evening stopping at the most important sites in its history: its ancient Roman ruins, its medieval castle, Gellert Hill for the best view of modern Pest and at the end, the inner city of Pest.

Meeting Point

Ideally along the Grand Boulevard

07:00 PM

Grand Boulevard

Pick up is on the Grand Bvd. (Nagykörút) at approx. 19:00. You may chose from several pick-up possibilities, such as Corvin Square, Rakoczi Sq, Blaha Square or Nyugati Railway Station.

07:20 PM

Roman Military Amphitheatre

Our history goes all the way back to Rome and even beyond. We stop at one of the most impressive Roman ruins in Budapest and I will tell you all about how Rome expanded its borders as far as the Danube and how Aquincum became the predecessor of Budapest.

08:00 PM

Fishermen's Bastion

We stop beneath Buda castle (our only medieval fortification in the city) and take the neo-romanesque stairs up to the Mathias church and walk in the surrounding streets to get a better feeling of what medieval Buda might have looked like and what changes it has undergone during the centuries. This is an ideal spot to take pictures of the Parliament and Pest from above.

08:50 PM

Gellert Hill

Our next stop provides the best vantage point to overlook our beautiful capital city and especially the inner city of Pest (the modern center of Budapest). You will hear all about who Gellert was and how the citadel came to be built on the Hill and how Pest became the more important part of the city in the 19th century. On our way down, depending on our time, I may be able to show you a completely hidden gem.

09:30 PM

Deak Ferenc Square

Our last stop will be the inner city of Pest and specifically the Jewish Quarter, which is the bustling heart of Budapest and the place where nightlife happens. I will drop you off around Gozsdu Passage, which is the most unique street of this district.

Ending Point

In the Jewish Quarter (around Gozsdu Passage)

Important Information

I am usually available Mon through Fri from about 17:00-17:30. Usually enough for an evening tour or a food tour, based on my experience. Saturdays and Sundays are in principle also okay, if contacted in advance.

Weekdays only from about 19:00, Weekends we can start earlier. Always ask in advance.

We will both be walking, climbing stairs and using my car. This is a tour for up to 4 people and I will bring along a bottle of water for everyone in order to keep us hydrated. We can start somewhat earlier than 19:00 during weekends. During weekdays, it is ideal to start around 19:00 due to traffic conditions.

One day Trip to the Danube Bend from Budapest

Budapest
11 hours 30 min

If you have ever wanted to get out of the big city, because you've now seen Budapest enough times, this is the day trip for you: combining urban with natural landscapes in one of the most scenic areas of Hungary: the Danube Bend, that is, the place where the Danube twists and turns and takes a 90 degree direction southwards. This are has in recent years become popular not only for locals, but tourists as well. Nevertheless it's a must see, if you want to escape Budapest for a day.
