Full Tour Description

Duration: 3-3.5 hours

On this unique tour, we will take you "off the beaten track" through the fascinating and yet unknown sections of Budapest that are not highlighted on your map. During the tour, you are going to discover hidden wonders: romantic narrow streets and squares with fascinating architecture and hear the background stories surrounding them.

You will be guided through areas of the former WWII ghetto where you will learn about the hardships and everyday life in the Jewish Quarter. Observe the lively ambience of the Gozsdu Courtyard - several blocks of buildings linked by one common corridor which is home to many shops and pubs. Sneak previews of local workshops and design shops are also included in the tour.

Get a peek inside the original "ruin-bar" of Budapest and also included on this tour is a taste of Hungary in the form of a short refreshment break.

After the break, we'll explore the Rakóczi road with it's sights and buildings such as one of the oldest hospitals of Budapest, which has a tiny chapel as well. The tour will continue on through the Palace Quarter (different to the one on the Buda Hill) and you'll be amazed by the contrast of what this section has to offer - you will find old buildings which still bear the scars of WWII and the revolution in 56', many of which played a large role during those events, and newly reconstructed buildings which still resemble the original design. The tour will venture further towards Kalvin Square.

You guide will lead you through the university section decorated with open air cafes and lounges which the past- and future great minds of Hungary use to learn and have discussions.

Our walking tours are small personal groups and generally do not have more than 15 participants, making them interactive and personal and giving you plenty of chances to ask questions and get to know your guide and press them for local tips of where to go and what else to do.
