What you'll do

The world famous Buda Castle is the number one touristic attraction in the Hungarian capital city. It’s a must thing to do, where you can easily spend 2 hours. The castle is actually a whole district, and it’s a footprint of the 1000 year old Hungarian state. A place of birth, cultural renaissance, royalty and prosperation but it’s history is also full of destructions and deaths.
During our tour, we’ll go into the details. You’ll get to know the life of the Hungarian kings and queens and learn about most dominant architecture styles of the royal court. With the help of my old images, I’ll try to introduce you how the Castle district looked like before the WWII destructions. You’ll hear about the rumors and habits of the locals, and of course you’ll enjoy the amazing cultural heritage of the Buda Castle and also the exceptional view to Pest side.
My main goal with the tour is to be an “infotainment” event, where you’ll learn and have fun in the same time :)

I'm a professional tour guide in love with my home city, Budapest. I’m also an archivist working in the City Archives of Budapest, so studying Budapest’s history is my fulltime job. Feeling comfortable in historical, architectural, political and cultural topics, but still remaining a laidback person. As a young man, I already discovered the alternative side of city, knowing what is really ‘in’ the city nowadays. I’m passionate about introducing my clients to all kind of wonders of the city. Based on my experience, I can adjust all of my tours to your interest, making sure all my tours become a pleasant memory.

Matyas gave me and my family a private tour, which I appreciated as they only speak Hungarian. The tour was awesome and filled with a lot of information, stories and old pictures. We could ask anything we wanted and have a nice discussion, even about personal life:) i can only recommend.

This tour was really special! Mátyás is genuinely interested in history and architecture. This passion really shows and made us feel engaged. He adapted the level of detail to his audience and we left feeling very satisfied. I would firmly recommend this tour to anyone interested in culture and history that wants more than what a general city tour normally offers!

Matyas was a fantastic guide around the Buda castle area. Very knowledgeable about the history, and clearly seemed to enjoy sharing this as a guide! Totally recommend for a really in depth look at the castle area

I was traveling alone and decided to explore the city more. I browsed several websites and tour guides but decided to go with Mátyás. I really enjoyed the Buda Castle walk with him. It was a low season and we were just 3 people on a tour. Mátyás explained all the historical details and answered all the questions we had. He showed some other interesting locations other than super touristic ones. He also gave some restaurant recommendations. I'm highly recommending Mátyás.

Mátyás was an excellent guide. It is easy to tell that he truly has a passion for this tour and everything that goes with it. His career allows him to know extra details that other tour guides would not necessarily touch upon, but are interesting to learn about. He is also super friendly and gives great recommendations on where to eat, enjoy nightlife, etc. If you have the time to take this tour, I would highly recommend doing it.

This was a really great tour where you got to see places in Buda Castle most tourists miss while visiting. Mátyás even pulled up old photos of the places we visited to show the change over the years and had lots of insight on the history. Great informative tour with beautiful views around every turn!
