Best Budapest Tour Guides

Pre or Post Cruise Budapest Tour

"My family and I toured Budapest last year with Christine T as our guide. We had an amazing time! Christine is a vivacious and sophisticated professional. She relays a deep knowledge of Hungarian history, culture, architecture and current events in a warm and inviting style. Christine’s energy and enthusiasm are just what a guide should embody. We travel quite regularly and unanimously rate our Budapest tour at the top of all our experiences with guides." Robert K, New York, N.Y

What You Don’t See from the Ship!

We take you places that were left out of your cruise ship tour: Gellert hill panorama with the Hungarian Statue of Liberty, Market hall, Parliament area, Liberty Square, Basilica or the Great Synagogue and an authentic spa in Budapest.

Before or after you take your cruise ship on the Danube, we will show you Budapest off the beaten track – things you won’t see during your otherwise wonderful city tour provided by your Danube cruise-ship. We will tailor your tour to your particular interest.

We, the Best Budapest Tour Guides have been working for 16 years regularly for almost all the cruise ship companies passing Budapest.

Most of our private guides have been program directors and local Budapest tour guides for many cruise ship companies: Viking Cruises, Uniworld, Grand Circle, Tui, Gate1, Tauck, AMA Waterways, APT, Alsace Croisière. We know and attempt to live up to the high quality standards of these companies – and we also know how limited and precious the time you spend with them in Budapest city tour, usually a half day. This time is enough for a first glance encounter, in which you see 3 of the most important sites of Budapest.

But once you start your tour here, why not explore more? We make sure to show you things that were left out of your cruise ship tour.

Budapest City tour: Fishermens Bastion and the views

Budapest with its river Danube, has an incredible view from the Buda hills! The best place for the view is Gellert hill, where the Hungarian Statue of Liberty tells you her story. Visit an authentic spa in Budapest, where you can even taste the unique thermal water, Szechenyi or Gellert Spa.

We can show you the Sport Stadiums and the Train Station where in 2015 summer all the refugees came. Visit the largest park to see the Fake Castle of Budapest – Castle of Vajdahunyad. This romantic castle was neighboring Dracula in Transylvania!

There is a spacious square around the Huge Hungarian Parliament with memories of Word War 2, the Holocaust, and the heroic Hungarian Revolution of 1956. The biggest Catholic church of Budapest and the Great Budapest Synagogue are 15 minutes from each other: St Stephen’s Basilica has 30 different kinds of marble, while the Great Budapest Synagogue is in magnificent, art-deco style.  Then comes the Farmers’ Market: impressive iron structure where you find handicraft, and actually try local food – your local tour guide will recommend something authentic and save you from the tourist traps there.

We make sure to show you things that were left out of your cruise ship tour.

Budapest Market Hall can be included in the private city tour
