Bogata, my tour guide, was knowledgeable, pleasant, and entertaining. The tour itself took us to places I'd probably not have seen without the tour and the most interesting part were the murals which are excellent artwork. I don't give out 5 stars unless I truly...More

There was just 3 of us on the tour so it should have been pretty easy for the guide. We saw some interesting wall art, a ruin bar (from the outside), a coffee shop with art hanging on the back wall (guide was not sure...More

Really enjoyed this tour as it wasn't your typical tourist type tour through the city. Great exposure to the city and some of it's "art".

Yes, Budapest has all the chic restaurants, bars, squares etc that all European tourist spots boast, however it also has the "ruin bars". These are bars with character that have been created within derelict buildings mostly in the Jewish quarter of the city. It's difficult...More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
