It is good to know, that the public transportation system in Budapest is very good. You can get anywhere in town within an hour from the center. For those, who are into alternative routes, and like to wander off the beaten track this might be the best option. All the attractions are accessible by public transport. Moreover, if you’d like to go on a big hike in the surrounding hills, you can take tram 61, the H5 suburban railway, or bus number 21 and in 60 minutes you’ll find yourself in a forest.

Alex Beata

A customized trip with Beata

Such a nice way to have Beata set up dinner and drinks for us at some of her local favorite spots! We hopped around and loved the 4 places she took us including the micro beer shop and ruin bars.

Derek Matthias

The Best of Budapest - Private Bike Tour

We had a great day with Matthias! He is incredibly easy to talk to, well versed on the history of Budapest and the surrounding areas. We really appreciated his flexibility to change the path based on what we've already seen in the city. His English is perfect and can even teach you some Hungarian!

Gina Zsuzsa

Private Photography Tour with a Local Pro

My husband and I did a morning tour with Zsuzsa and we’re very happy. It was on our last day and not only did she teach us some new things about photography, we also got to visit some quaint local neighborhoods. It was a great break from the tourist crowds and we still found enough interesting things to see. Zsuzsa has a wealth of experience and is just a genuinely nice person and great to be around. If you like photography this is a great tour - take it with Zsuzsa!

There are other more convenient ways of sightseeing in Budapest. You can have an authentic Trabant sightseeing tour in Budapest. Traveling in a Trabant is really special because it was the most popular car in in the Communist Era. To hear the engine of these old cars that gradually found their ways into the hearts of locals is among the most unique experiences you can find while sightseeing in Budapest.

When you are a bit tired of constant sightseeing in Budapest, join one of the local hosts for a dinner, with traditional Hungarian, or fusion-style meal. Usually, some good quality, traditional beverages are included too, such as wine or pálinka. After a great cozy meal, you will have enough energy to continue your day.
