Get to know the real Hungary with a historical private tour of Budapest. You will begin with a short minibus ride to reach the entrance gate of the Castle District, where you’ll set off on your Budapest adventure.
Pass by historical buildings that seem to be silent and sleepy, but just wait until your guide tells you stories from behind the walls! Enjoy the small architectural details prevalent in the Castle District and hear tales of former inhabitants and owners of the houses.
Next up on your private Budapest tour, you’ll pass by the oldest confectionary shop of the city and visit the first private art gallery of Hungary.
After taking a walk around the Royal Palace and admiring the breathtaking view from the hilltop, we’ll walk back to the residential part of the Castle District. Here, we have time for a surprising discovery in the Hotel Hilton before our Budapest tour comes to an end at Matthias Church, one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
At the end of your private tour, your guide will give you some local tips on where to go to enjoy a glass of wine or lunch in the district.
