Budapest
Private and Small Group Guided Tours

( 603 )
An eclectic mix of ancient and modern, Budapest is saturated with complex history, a capital that has constantly emerged from under foreign rule to assert its own identity.
Separated by the Danube, the settlements of Pest and Buda form one of the most intriguing cities in Europe. First inhabited by ancient Celts and Romans, the next millennia saw the city become host to communism, Catholicism, Gothic monuments, Art Nouveau movements, Baroque buildings, and post-communism—all integral pieces of contemporary Hungarian identity. Explore Budapest's many facets with Context's private and small group guided tours.

Budapest Private and Guided Tours

First-time visitors will want to join our Introduction to Budapest tour, which focuses on the Pest side of the river and gives a solid overview of the history and culture of this city. From St. Stephen's to Freedom Square, this Budapest walking tour winds up the Danube, helping orient visitors geographically and culturally. A great counterpoint to this is our Budapest Castle Tour, which focuses on the Castle District in Buda, chronicling the impact of the Hapsburg dynasty in the city while visiting highlights like Buda Castle and Fisherman's Bastion. We also offer a Communist Budapest Walking Tour, which travels back in time to see how life changed under Communist rule in Hungary, visiting monuments and important locations to get a better understanding of how this era continues to reverberate today, as well as a Budapest Politics Tour, which takes a deep dive on Hungarian identity to get a better idea of how it has shaped contemporary politics. Our Budapest Architecture Tour explores Hungarian Art Nouveau, examining some of the most striking structures that went up as Budapest emerged as a cultural capital in the early 20th century. In addition to the history-focused Budapest private and guided tours mentioned above, guests have raved about our Jewish Quarter Budapest Tour, which visits the Great Synagogue and examines the particular role Hungarian Jews played within the greater diaspora, especially when capped by a Hungarian Jewish Food Tour and Traditional Meal—hosted by the wife of a Rabbi in their home.
What Context Budapest Travelers Say

We were hoping for a very knowledgeable guide that is able to answer our questions and also adds some personal notes to the tour. And this was exactly what Zsofia offered us. We‘ve learnt a lot about the area and the Jewish life and she always had a little story to tell that made the history more lively. We very much enjoyed the tour with Zsofia and are convinced about the concept of Context travel.
Szonja was a fantastic guide and gave us much insight and history that we would not have otherwise received.
The tour was outstanding - in large part because the guide, Nada, was equally outstanding. Her knowledge of history was exhaustive - from pre-history to events that happened just months before our visit. Seeing the city through her eyes was a highlight of our trip to Budapest.
