Alternative Budapest was set up to show visitors not the usual sights, monuments and historical landmarks that other tours show you, but to take you deeper, further and more underground, unfolding the vibe, the scene and showing you the other side of city. Our tours aren't about the past, they're about what's happening now.

Tours take place every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 3pm. Private tours are also available - please email or message us.

Cost: 4500ft per adult. 4000ft per student (for the scheduled tours).

Meet in the centre of Budapest at Deák Ferenc tér - see map here: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=215689842926416802053.0004c041479c4f7602bea&msa=0&ll=47.497111,19.054767&spn=0.003711,0.009645

Our Guides

Our guides are all fully qualified and have been handpicked for their passion and knowledge of the underground scene in Budapest. They all also have extensive guiding experience of traditional historical and cultural tours, which allows them to give you a deeper understanding of both sides of Budapest.

The Tour

The tour brings together aspects of the underground art and music scenes and takes you through districts rarely visited by tourists. On this tour you will experience elements of the city not normally seen by visitors, and learn about the urban culture, architecture, politics and people that make Budapest a truly unique city.

We ensure that our tours are always in small groups to enable our guests to really come into personal contact with the environments we visit, and to ensure that we don't cause any disruption to our surroundings. Alternative Budapest respects and supports the venues and communities that are part of our tours, and therefore good behaviour from our guests is essential.

So if you want to get a different perspective and to understand what really makes today's Budapest tick, be adventurous and come on a tour with us!
