Buda Castle Explorer with an Entrance Ticket to Matthias Church from Budapest
From US$ 59.57
Overview
Stroll up Budapest's Castle Hill with a local guide on this 3-hour walking tour. As you pass stately buildings with unique architectural details, hear stories about their histories and past occupants. Stop by the city's oldest confectionery and Hungary's first private art gallery before ending up at Matthias Church. With your included entrance ticket, explore the interior of the 14th-century church, constructed in the Gothic style. Leave your tour with some tips on where to get lunch or an afternoon coffee in the surrounding neighborhood.
What to Expect
Get to know the real Hungary with this historical Budapest tour. You will begin with a short minibus ride to reach the entrance gate of the Castle District, where you’ll set off on your Budapest adventure.

Pass by historical buildings that seem to be silent and sleepy, but just wait until your guide tells you stories from behind the walls! Enjoy the small architectural details prevalent in the Castle District and hear tales of former inhabitants and owners of the houses.

Next up on your Budapest tour, you’ll pass by the oldest confectionery shop of the city and visit the first private art gallery of Hungary.

After taking a walk around the Royal Palace and admiring the breath-taking view from the hilltop, we’ll walk back to the residential part of the Castle District. Here, we have time for a surprising discovery in the Hotel Hilton before our Budapest tour comes to an end at Matthias Church, one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.

At the end of your tour your guide will give you some local tips on where to go to enjoy a glass of wine or lunch in the district.

Amazing Guide, great way to see Budapest in such a short time

The Total Budapest Discovery walking tour seems to be a new option from Urban Adventures and it looks like it still has to take off. A pity because it is an excellent way to see what the city has to offer, in a short period....More

If you are referring to the entrance to Matthias Church, it is off the open square by the Fisherman's Bastion. The entrance is well marked. The statue of Matthias upon his horse is nearby.
