I work as an interpreter in the busy city and I know a wonderful place in the hills of Budapest if you want a break from the hustle and bustle of the busy city. In my childhood I spent a lot of time in the mountains of Buda and I know the best places which are close to the city and offer some really special for visitors..

Great experience with Victor. He took us to a hill that we would not expect to go on our own. We love the hiking and Storytelling!

Very nice tour with a very friendly host! Victor makes you feel very comfortable and he knows a lot about the environment and history. It´s nice to go outside the city centre into the nature and we had a beautiful view. We were also lucky with the weather. I would recommend this tour if you want to do something different with nice company.

The host is very knowledgeable. The scenery has to be the best in the city from the hilltop. It’s a little bit of a walk from the end of the chairlift to the top at a decent incline, but the host will provide ample opportunities for a break if needed. Would definitely recommend!
