Full Tour Description

Most tourist visiting Budapest go through the usual bucket list of famous historic sights. Though ticking these off your list is great, it rarely gives an insight into contemporary city life and culture. During the alternative tour we give you a glimpse behind veil. Rather than looking backwards, we go off the beaten track, in search of what make Budapest the unique and buzzing city it is today.

Starting at our office behind the Opera House, we head past the Parliament and onto the lush green Margaret Island. Here you can learn about Margaret, the daughter of King Béla IV, and see the hidden gems of the island, such as the open-air theater, the Japanese Garden, the Musical Fountain and beautiful Art Nouveau Water Tower.

From here we cycle to the northern part of Buda, Óbuda, to visit the Victor Vasarely Museum. This honors the work of the famous Hungarian-French artist who is accepted as the "grandfather" of the Op Art movement. After a short refreshment break at a local pub, we'll take a look at the work of both amatuer and professional graffiti artist on Budapest's longest legal graffiti wall. Because Óbuda was once an important center for industrial production, we have a peek at some of the now disused factories. We also take a look at the spectacular Óbuda Gas Works. Inaugurated in 1914 it was the most advance gas factory in Europe by that time.

For the last leg of the tour, we'll make our way down to the banks of the river Danube. Here we can relax in one of the many outdoor cafes and watch the busy river. It's also a great opportunity to try the great traditional Hungarian street food, "langos". Saying it's deep fried dough with sour cream and cheese really doesn't do it justice. Even better doused with lots of garlic! With full bellies, we ride back into the city center.
