Budapest Private and Small Group Guided Tours

( 631 )
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 the city's many facets with Context's Budapest private tours and Budapest small group tours.

Budapest Private Tours and Budapest Small Group Tours

First-time visitors will want to join our Introduction to Budapest tour with one of our Budapest private guides, 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, our Budapest guided tours help to 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 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 tours and Budapest small group 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.

Levente was very knowledgeable about not only Hungarian politics but was well versed in American politics. He was very professional and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed his conversation.
Great was an outstanding guide; she was knowledgeable, intellectual and engaging. We asked lots of questions about politics, history, culture, the Jewish community in Hungary and more and Greta answered in great detail and with wide level of knowledge. We found it so interesting that we invited Greta to join us for dinner that evening where we were able to continue our conversation.
We have not been disappointed with any of our previous tours and the Buda Castle tour was not an exception.Greta was an incredible guide! Her knowledge and energy were tremendous. The 4 of us had an individualized and exciting time. Greta is the best! Once again, Context tours has provided amazing service.
