About the ride
After the sun has set, you will be picked up directly from your accommodation by your Welcome driver, and taken on your tailor-made journey through the highlights of Budapest in the romantic setting of night. Although your tour is completely customizable, and points of interest can be added or taken away, the following itinerary is one we suggest to use as a base:
- Buda Castle, the massive palace of the former Hungarian Kings overlooks the Danube river. An iconic masterpiece of Baroque architecture.
- St. Stephen's Basilica, a Neoclassical basilica named after the first King of Hungary.
- Fisherman's Bastion, a sprawling fairy-tale structure with lookout towers offering a panoramic view of night-time Budapest.
- Citadella, a triumphant monument built on a hill overlooking the city.
- State Opera House, Hungary's national opera house
- Szechenyi Chain Bridge, a world-famous bridge gloriously lit up at night.
- Heroes Square, a major monument of soaring arches and bronze-cast statues. Visit this famous square and see the lights come alive at night.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
What happens after I book?
Once you complete your booking you will receive a confirmation email. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org for any specific questions regarding your booking.
Can I customize the tour based on my needs?
Of course! That is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.
Will there be an official tour guide?
An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in depth information regarding historic facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed. However, we believe the "Budapest by Night" experience does not need a tour guide to be fully enjoyed.
Photography is permitted in most historical sites unless otherwise mentioned.
We recommend you always keep local currency on you (Hungarian forint) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
Comfortable Clothes & Shoes
We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing and good walking shoes.
Accessibility & Special Needs
Should anyone in your group have special needs or have advanced accessibility requirements, please specify upon booking and we will make sure to accommodate your needs and customize your tour accordingly.
