By far the best tour we could have wished for - very friendly and informative - Emily knows her city and her history. A personal tour is a great way to start your stay in Budapest- thank you Emily

We did a tour with Emily that spanned both the Buda and the Pest sides of the city. The amount of knowledge she shared with us was amazing. I would highly recommend Emily to take you through the city!

I found Emily on Trip Advisor the night before we were flying out to Budapest and solely went off the rating. I read the reviews and thought I'd trust the comments and reached out to her to pick us up at the airport for a ride to the hotel. She gave us some great insight on the city and some... More

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
