Full Tour Description

The Budapest Alternative Tour is an experience for people who want to see different side of a city – it’s alternative side. You won’t see the usual sights, monuments and historical landmarks that other tours show you but rather the more underground things that really define Budapest. Our tours aren’t about the past, they’re about what’s happening now.

The tour covers a wide variety themes and topics – from Budapest’s graffiti and street art culture to current politics, relevant history and personal stories, to fashion, design, architecture & the local communities’ scene. Each tour route is different depending on what is happening in the city, but you’ll visit a mixture of arts and independent culture centers, community spaces.

All of our guides are fully qualified and you’ll end the tour in a small cultural venue and cafe where you’ll be able to pick the brain of your guide for info on great places to check out during your stay in Budapest (both mainstream/historical and more off-the-beaten-track).
