Getting Around The City: Budapest Walking Tours

Walking tours in Budapest are the best way to get around the city and to access many of the Budapest sights and attractions on offer. Thankfully, Budapest is a relatively small city and it isn’t hard work to go around on foot!

Strolling around is a popular way to see the city and one of the top things to do for tourists and locals. It is really the perfect way to discover a wealth of things that you can’t always find in guidebooks!

What Are The Advantages of Budapest Walking Tours?

  • I guess that one of the main advantages to walking tours in the city is the relatively low costs – there are several companies that organize guided Budapest walking tours at very affordable prices, you can even get involved with the free walking tours that the Budapest Card has to offer.
  • You can get close and personal with some of the city’s finest sights such as the Buda Castle, the Royal Palace and best of all – the secret places that only the locals know about. There will be lots of surprises as you wander around the city streets.
  • Travelers and locals alike will agree over and over again that Budapest walking tours are the most enjoyable means for sightseeing in this dazzling city.
    Sometimes a city can be overwhelming – especially if it is your first visit and by choosing a walking tour with an established company you can trust that the itinerary will be up to date and include the sights that you want to see.
    The guides live and breathe Budapest, so they are ready to show you around and answer any questions you may have.
  • Alternatively, there are just as many walking tours that you can easily navigate alone should you not be keen on joining up with a group of strangers. Budapest is quite easy to wander around and the advantages of going on a walking tour without a guide is the flexibility and the plus of going at your own leisurely pace.
