Full description
Your tour begins at the Holy Trinity Statue, from where you walk around the magnificent Matthias Church - built in the splendid Gothic style of the 15th century. Next to the cathedral you can admire the Fishermen's Bastion, a fantastic fairy tale structure offering the best view over the Danube and the Hungarian Parliament building. After a pleasant walk on the old cobble-stone streets, leave the residential district to travel to the President's Palace and the Royal Palace complexes. Walk around the courtyards and fountains, and look at the proud guards outside the palace. From the royal terraces you can enjoy the the most stunning views of the other side of the city across the majestic Danube River, with full views of its main bridges: Margaret Bridge, Chain Bridge, Elizabeth Bridge, and Liberty Bridge. After walking back from the Royal Palace, explore the other side of the castle. From the medieval walls you have an excellent view towards the Buda Hills - the western part of the city with its forests and nature parks. Your tour later ends at the tour starting point at the Holy Trinity Statue, in front of the Matthias Church.

The tour guide was one of the best tour guides that my wife and I ever had she was incredibly informative professional courteous and knowledgeable. After the tour or I felt like I had a firm grasp of the history of Buda Castle and the events that took place there both historically and currently. I would highly recommend this tour.

Our guide Ms. Emese was very friendly and gave out positive vibes. We learnt a lot of stuff about the Buda area and I’d say it’s a great tour if you want to get the main idea about Hungarian history and culture. We enjoyed every minute of the tour, strolling around the old Buda area.

It was lovely sunny day for a tour, guide had full pocket of interesting facts and tried throwing in some jokes too. Only downside I could say she was talking bit too slow pace. I am used to having much faster speaking guides to create more lively experience. It felt as 2h was a bit too long, we could have done it in 1.5h for example, but its not a big deal, we had a relaxing walk with her, compared to rushing to other sites ourself.
