Budapest Urban Adventures

Day tours, with a local

Visiting the Hungarian capital is surely an experience, and Budapest Urban Adventures invites you to explore it in style. Budapest is a very eclectic city in terms of style, atmosphere and people, and our specially designed Budapest tours allow you to discover the city in a personal and unique way.

Budapest is the capital of Hungary, but the city of "Budapest” itself was only born about 150 years ago. It contains some magnificent architecture, from Roman ruins and 400 year old Turkish baths to Baroque dwelling houses, 19th century Neoclassical palaces and 20th century art-nouveau buildings. Walking through the city is a trip through history.


During the past twenty years several modern buildings have been built and some abandoned districts have started to flourish. You still find some small boutiques in the city but you can also find new shopping malls and designer boutiques of the best known brands as well.


Budapest is full of surprises. Five minutes walk away from the most elegant avenue of the city you will find yourself in an area of old and abandoned buildings. Here, in the so called 'Ruin Bars', young people meet in the evenings and dance the night away.


If you have a thirst for adventure you can visit the cave system of the Castle District, or take a dip in one of the city’s hot springs. Among the locals, Széchenyi Thermal Baths is one of the most popular. Here you can bath in ten different indoor and outdoor pools or go for a relaxing massage, all whilst admiring the breathtaking architecture.


If you get hungry after walking around all day, just go and taste some traditional "Töltött káposzta”(stuffed cabbage) or some "tökös –mákos rétes” (pumpkin –poppyseed strudel). Or on a hot summer day have a refreshing cold fruit soup in one of the great Budapest restaurants. After dinner don’t forget to take the "Sikló” (funicular) to Buda Castle and look upon the city at night.


Come and experience Budapest the Urban Adventures way! Learn about our eclectic culture, visit the city highlights, meet the locals, unravel the history, and taste the flavours, all with our friendly and professional local guides on one of our Budapest tours.

Eniko was warm and enthusiastic from our initial call until the very end of the trip. The tour itself was well planned and it was lovely to eat a little, walk a little, nosh a little, walk a little, etc. The types of foods were extremely varied and it is clear that she really knows a lot about the history of Budapest and enjoyed sharing her knowledge with us. After the tour, Eniko took her own time to answer a few of our additional questions and help us plan some activities for the rest of our trip. It was an excellent experience and really enhanced our trip. We were left with a fantastic impression of the city and Eniko truly is an excellent ambassador of the Urban Adventures brand. Highly recommended.

I was the only person booked on the tour, but the guide still approached it with high enthusiasm, and it allowed the guide to communicate much more information that is possible in a larger group. An excellent experience.
