Budapest Tours are one of the best ways to get to know the city and its dozens of great attractions: bus and boat tours, walking tours, wine tours, tasting tours, market tours etc. are warmly recommended, especially if you are a first time visitor in Budapest, a city of about 2 million people, often referred to as the ‘Paris of East’.

If you are on a budget tour, the good news is that some of the Budapest walking tours are free (tip-based), while well known wine tours are often great value for money. Not to be missed!
The list above is based on tourist reviews and ratings on TripAdvisor travel guide, currently the most popular and active travel site in the world.
Consequently, there may be further great tour companies in Budapest that have not made into our list as they have not received enough reviews yet. Please add your comments below and help us to keep the list as fresh and crisp as possible.
In a 2-3 hour tour you can take a look at some of the attractions that appeal to you for closer scrutiny on your own. Or you can taste surprisingly excellent and hardly known Hungarian wines, and try authentic local cuisine, which goes well beyond Hungarian goulash.
We have put together a flexible 3 day walking tour to explore Budapest and its must-sees. This is a self-guided tour, but there are many tour companies helping you to learn about interesting things and places in the Hungarian capital.
