Budapest is widely considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, home to an incredible array of World Heritage Sites and stunning architecture that draws millions of tourists each year. The Danube river splits the Buda side of the city from the Pest which, having both been independent cities originally, were unified to become Budapest in 1873. The multitude of hot springs have made the city famous for its public baths which come in a variety of architectural styles from the Turkish era to Art Nouveau. 
Panoramic Views over the City
 
Your private guide will begin your tour on Castle Hill, which stands more than 100m above the Danube and offers outstanding panoramas of the city. Here you will find the stunning Matthias Church dating back five centuries. The Fisherman’s Bastion is also worth your attention, a terrace with stunning views dedicated to the fisherman that defended the city walls in the middle ages. Buda castle is the historical residence of the Kings and Queens of Hungary, an imposing building that has undergone a series of transformations since the mid-13th century, and on this tour you will explore the gardens with your guide

As you wander to Gellért Hill, enjoy yet another stunning vantage point to admire the city in all its glory. The hill was named after Saint Gerald who was thrown to his death here. Build with impressive Art Nouveau architecture dating back to the 20th century, the Gellért thermal baths are the quintessential place to spend the rest of your day. Your guide will depart with you here, so you can pop into the bath-house and enjoy Gellért at your leisure
