101 things to see in Budapest- a must do!!
Reka was a fabulous tour guide! She knows Budapest inside and out. She showed us sights we had read about and many that we hadn't heard of. She has a through understanding of Budapest history and the ability to make it come alive. Touring the city with her was very enjoyable. Even her dinner recommendations were spot on.
Budapest Greatest Hits Full Day Tour
Great introduction to Budapest! 'Ruins and Bars' and 'Budapest Urban Walk'
My husband, and me booked two tours with Urban walks -Ruins and Bars, and Budapest Urban Walk. By coincidence we were the only ones taking the group tours on that day so it was like a private tour! We really appreciate that Urban Walks did not charge us extra and still gave us a great time. The pick ups, the drop off, schedules, etc went so smoothly.These walks were definitely the highlight of our trip!
Reka was our guide for the Budapest Urban Walk. She is so passionate about her city. She gave us a wonderful insight into the history of Budapest, also told us a lot of fun titbits. We had an amazing coffee and pastry stop in between the tour We went back there twice!). Before we knew it 4 hours were up! We were sad to see her go! Also Reka gave us recommendations to superb restaurants, cafes, even baths (we did gellert) and cruises (legenda evening cruise). It's like she had our back throughout the trip.
Our guide for the Ruins and Bars tour was Andrew. He was so much fun and easy to be with. He took us to unique bars that only a local would know. We had amazing crafted beers, liquors, food (must try Langos) and conversation! Egeszegedre!
If anyone is looking for these kind of activities in Budapest just go with Urban Walks blindly, they are simply the best!
Budapest Urban Walk: Sightseeing Tour
Get stuffed!!!
We arrived in Budapest a couple of days before our river cruise ship would pick us up and so we had some time to book a walking food tour of Budapest. Daniel of Budapest Urban Walks arranged to have Andrew give us a couple hours introducing us to Hungarian wines and foods. Andrew gave an excellent tour and he was clearly knowledgeable about the local food scene. I'm not much of a wine drinker but I did appreciate the wine tasting we had at a local restaurant; we tasted three Hungarian wines (I really like the Tokaj wine). As an additional treat (although time was limited), this particular restaurant had a nice little museum in the basement! We tried the street food "langos" which we saw many folks eating as they were walking about. Finally, we had a sampler lunch at a restaurant which had excellent food; my favorite was this cold fruit soup which was absolutely delicious! By the end of this experience, we were stuffed! So make sure to properly time this tour (keep this in mind if you have already planned for a big lunch or dinner). Overall, I would highly recommend Budapest Urban Walks. Their tour guides are so friendly, caring and helpful. They are quite knowledgeable about their city and its history and they are clearly proud to be part of it!

Hoppy Hours Tour
Decided to take the Hoppy Hours tour to kick off our three nights in Budapest and it was a GREAT way to start our time in the city. We lucked out and had the tour to ourselves along with Ferenc our guide who could not have been better! Basically, it was like having a local friend for the night to show us the best spots to grab locally crafted beer, street food spots, pubs and ruin bars. The conversation drifted from history to the local beer/culinary scene, tourism, politics and where to spend time during the rest of our trip. Ferenc was super friendly, knowledgeable and made the whole experience a five star night. Definitely recommend the tour and would likely do it again if we return. There was lots of food to go along with the tour too!

Hoppy Hours: Budapest Craft Beer Tour
Great all round!
We booked 3 walking tours with Budapest Urban Walks.

Our 3 guides (Reka, Ferenc & Raymond) were excellent and had their individual strengths which suited each tour.

The Street Food tour was some fun with a wide variety of dishes from different nationalities. Ferenc knew his local food haunts and he took us to some of his favourite places, which included trying some Hungarian favourite dishes.

Raymond (Budapest Urban Walk) was young, enthusiastic and knew his history well, and told us some interesting information and stories about various historical characters.

Reka (on the Fools & Kings tour) took us around the castle area of Buda. We enjoyed her company and found her to be very friendly and personable. She asked us what sort of things we are interested in (history, architecture, culture etc) and aimed our tour at our interests. Reka is a delight.

Most of my correspondence was with Reka and she could not have been any more helpful, offering their help with anything during our stay. I felt like they “had our back” while we were in Budapest.

Reka also made an anniversary dinner reservation for us, as well as providing a welcomed list of other suggestions.

What I really appreciated was that they accepted our bookings on the small group tours, and only charged these prices even though we ended up having private tours (as no one else had booked the same tours on the same days). Not all companies do this!

I recommend this company for their excellent customer service and great local knowledge.

Best tour of our trip
This was a wonderful tour and information! The level of detail was phenomenal and gave us a rich background of Budapest and its past. It was the top tour of our trip, thanks to the individual attention provided by and and lovely personality of our fabulous guide, Reka!
Fools & Kings: Budapest Castle District Tour
Great Tour
Anita our guide arrived on time to start our Born Under the Red Star Tour. Anita was extremely engaging and personable. Armed with some picture reference books we were thoroughly engaged. We saw and learnt so much in those 3 hours with Anita’s expert knowledge. Travelling on the old metro train, coffee at a traditional Budapest cafe, discovering old Communist buildings and enjoying another drink later on at the retro Trabant Lounge- which was great fun. It was a great tour, well paced for weary legs and very interesting. Great job Anita !

Fun and Unusual
This area is full of bars with many different themes. All are decorated in wild decor, too unusual to describe. There are different rooms with different bars, a wine bar, outdoor area...lots of fun.
Ruins & Bars: Budapest Ruin Bar Tour
The best city tour we have experienced!
We visited Budapest in late March and decided that we would book a tour with Budapest Urban walks on the recommendation of a friend. I cannot speak highly enough of our tour, We combined a gastronomy& wine tour with the history tour. it was amazing. Ferenc was really helpful when we emailed to book and also with general information about Budapest. He even arranged pickup from the airport. Reka our guide was extremely knowledgeable and no matter what question we asked about the history and culture of Budapest she was able to answer. Her love of and pride in her native city shines through. No script required!! I would urge every visitor to Budapest to make a trip with Budapest Urban Walks their first priority. It will enhance every else they do in this beautiful vibrant city. Thanks guys.

A unique Team!
I had the privilege of doing 3 private tours with 'Budapest Urban Walks'. I contacted them even before starting the trip stating my preferences and Réka prepared me a set of tours fully adjusted to what I wanted and my availability.
During the exchange of emails I realized at once that 'Budapest Urban Walks' was different, and it really is.
I did The Bright Lights of Budapest (with Christmas Markets) in the company of Gabriela; Then, next day morning, with Anita, Fools and Kings and, in the third morning, Ferenc took me to visit The Jewish Quarter (including Ruin Bars and Urban Art).
All tours far exceeded my best expectations. Budapest is a unique city and 'Budapest Urban Walks' is unique too! . It would be impossible to discover by myself so many hidden gems as impossible would also be to learn, just by reading, as much as each and every one of them taught me. This wonderful team has an immense knowledge about Budapest and deeply love their city. I started each tour with a guide who in the end was already a friend.
I have not yet mentioned it, but I think it's important - they always came to pick me up at my hotel and it was at the hotel that the tour ended.
Thank you very much for everything, Réka, Gabi, Anita and Ferenc. I hope to welcome you in Lisbon as you promised me.

Budapest walking food tour
We were lucky enough to be the only 2 people on the tour and so Ferenc asked us what we like and was able to tailor the tour for my husband and myself. Very pleasant walk around Budapest calling at about 5 stops for food including markets, shops and restaurants ending with a wine tasting. Our guide Ferenc spoke very good English and was very informative about life in Hungary and was very helpful. Most of the food we tried was delicious and we left feeling very full. Would recommend this tour, you not only get to try local food but see and hear about the city and life in Hungary.

Wonderful "Socialist Tour"!
We came to Budapest for 4 days and i can say, that "Socialist Tour" with Ferenc was the most significant plan what we had. He has perfect guide skill! We had amazing 3 hours.. I highly recommend Budapest Urban Walks and hope we'll meet again for other tours!

Budapest Street Food Tour
Fantastic city tour
Being my second visit to Budapest , this time with some of my family I wanted to share my great experience previously enjoyed with a walking tour of the city.
A friend recommended this company so I booked our private tour with them.
Our guide Ferenc was outstanding and made us all feel so welcome in his country , it is so important to have a local guide he made it so interesting , we got to see all the main attractions as well as some more unusual sights more off the beaten track which we would never have found on our own , with a good mix of history , myths and legends .
What I really liked is that you are not rushed so you can do as much or as little as you want in your time booked it is a good way to start your trip as you get an idea of the city layout before you go out alone .
Ferenc also told us about some good places to try out the local cuisine which must be done .
I would certainly recommend Budapest Urban Walks wether it is your first or second visit , there is so much to see .
Fools & Kings: Budapest Castle District Tour
Great tour!
The tour was very interesting and thorough! One of the best tours I have ever been on. I felt very welcomed and would recommed this tour to anybody!
Spies & Masters: Cold War Tour of Budapest
Such an amazing time!
The home cooking class was so much fun. It was the highlight of my trip to Europe. I learned so much more than Hungarian cooking. I learned about the culture as well. I will be taking another class when I am back in Hungary.

Poorly organised but fun once the wine was flowing!
If you take the trip at face value, the wine, views and atmosphere was great. It was the organisation and service around the event that was disappointing...

We were told to meet at Danube Palace as were many other people for various tours, once we arrived there was no indication that we were in the correct place. We followed a group of people in what seemed like the direction of the waterfront with no communication from the lead where we were going or what tour we were being taken to. Once aboard the boat, we get shown to our table and sit there patiently, waiting to be greeted by our server / host. We watch as she serves all the tables around us, they're now being served their second glass of wine and we still have not even been greeted / told what is happening. I went to speak to her to query when we will get our wine to which she replies she did not know we were part of the tour!!! 45 minutes later and we are sat sipping our first glass of wine watching the beautiful buildings from the Danube. The wine itself was great but more could have been done to explain / talk about the different types of wine and where they come from etc.

A few simple improvements and this tour would easily be a 4/5*!!!
