Expert-Led Walking Tours in Budapest

for Travelers who Like to Learn

Bisected by the mighty river Danube, Budapest’s two sides conjure distinct eras. Buda Hill’s Castle District recalls the Magyar Kings, Turkish Pashas, and Habsburg Diets who ruled from here, while lively Pest below -with its extravagant Parliament and Stock Exchange- evokes the political and financial power of the modern Hungarian nation.

On Insight Budapest private tours and small-group tours, we explore the many faces of Hungary’s capital, from the city’s profound Jewish heritage, fabulous Art Nouveau architecture, grand cafés, and complex Cold War legacy, to the Ruin Bars and UNESCO-cited design scene that infuse Budapest today with new cosmopolitanism and creativity.
