Tour description

We start the tour from the Chain Bridge, pass by the Elisabeth Bridge and the Downtown Parish Church, then take the small boulevard to show you the famous Central Market Hall, the National Museum and the largest Synagogue of Europe from outside.
We then take the Andrássy Avenue, pass by the St Stephen's Basilica as well as the Opera House and stop at Heroes' Square to show you the statues of the most famous Hungarian kings and dukes while giving you a brief overview of the last 1000 years of Hungarian history. Next, we discover the City Park on foot (Europe's largest thermal spa, Budapest Zoo and Vajdahunyad Castle).
After this pleasant walk we drive over to the Buda side and stop in the Castle District. We walk to the Matthias Church and the Fishermen's Bastion (from where you can enjoy the beautiful panorama) and other main attractions of the area.
Next, we drive to the Gellért Hill (Citadel) and show you the most spectacular view of Budapest. We then take you over the Elisabeth Bridge to Pest.
The tour ends in the city-centre.

“Fantastic tour with Zoltan.” – Tripadvisor Rating: 5/5

We took an Ideal City Tour with a Danube day cruise. The tour was Informative, comprehensive and a fantastic way to get your bearings when you arrive in the city. Zoltan was friendly, informed and funny, and he answered all of our questions fully and with interesting anecdotes. You see the majority of the major landmarks with photo stops at the important ones with plenty of thorough historic info as well as insider tips. We were part of quite a small group and had a great time and Zoltan even took the time to make sure we knew how to get to our cruise pier at the right time before leaving us. The cruise was great, would have preferred to do it at night in hindsight but really great views of Buda Castle and the Parliament nonetheless.
