This is a tour for people who want to see the other side of a city – it’s alternative side. You won’t see the usual sights, monuments and historical landmarks that other tours show you, but rather the more underground things that really define Budapest. Our tours aren’t about the past, they’re about what’s happening now.

The tour covers a wide variety themes and topics – from Budapest’s graffiti and street art culture to current politics, relevant history and personal stories, to fashion, design, architecture & the local music scene. Each tour route is different depending on what is happening in the city, but you’ll visit a mixture of arts and culture centers, abandoned synagogues, independent galleries, community spaces, music venues, theatres, and make a stop for a coffee or beer in an art and coffee collective or a ruin bar come community centre/bike workshop/analogue photography gallery.

All of our guides are fully qualified and active in various areas of the alternative creative scene in Budapest and you’ll end the tour in a great venue where you’ll be able to pick the brain of your guide for info on great places to check out during your stay in Budapest (both mainstream/historical and more off-the-beaten-track).
