Do you want to see where Dracula lives? Are you interested in discovering a half medieval half Baroque royal palace? Would you like to visit the church which symbolizes the entire Hungarian history? Are you looking for a view protected by UNESCO World Heritage? Join me for the 4-hour Buda walking tour in the 1000-year-old town.

Buda became Hungary’s capital in the 13th century and its architecture is a fascinating mixture of Medieval and Baroque styles. I’d like to show you around the historic old town including the famous Matthias church and the Fisherman’s Bastion.

We’ll start our tour around the old, cobblestoned streets of the Castle District and we’ll visit the 700-year-old Royal Palace. I’ll then introduce you the rather unique combination of the medieval Hungarian Castle and the new Baroque Palace designed by and for the Habsburg Empire.

You’ll feel like a real royal climbing up the stairs – or perhaps taking the escalator – of the magnificent Castle Garden Bazaar, which is now a beautiful park with a great view over the Danube river. I’ll then show you the beautiful residential buildings with medieval remains.

We’ll visit the Matthias church, that is probably the most beautiful and certainly the most unique church of our city. Later we’ll see the Fisherman’s Bastion in order to savor the view from the neighborhood’s most richly ornate look-out terrace. I’ll also take you to Buda’s best confectionery because I’m convinced you’ll enjoy trying some of our famous cakes.

Finally, I’m sure you’ll adore the spectacular panorama from the top of the Castle Hill all over beautiful Budapest.

We were a family of 4 and visited 4 cities on a Europe tour. Budapest was our last stop & we were tired. Julia was a wonderful surprise! She was our favorite tour guide of the trip! She had so much enthusiasm, knowledge & experience we fell in love with Budapest. Julia catered to our kids as well as the parents & we learned so much! She was so good we were lucky to book her the next day to show us more of the city. She has a brilliant plan to see a lot & not waste time. You will love her!

The Buda tour with Julia was amazing. Informative and entertaining at the same time. Join these guides for the perfect understanding of the city.

We were in a tour in the castle with a lot of Turkish guys. Juli was fantastic. She is one of the best tour guide in hungary or maybe she is the best. She has really good English. She speaks loudly, slowly, and so clearl. She knows a lot about the history of castle, and she also knows a lot of interesting thing about the spirit of Hungary. I think if you want a good tour guide she is the best choice.
