Great walking tour that included Heros' square, dancing fountain, Parliament building, St. Stephen Basilica, metro & bus ride to Buda castle and sightseeing of Fisherman's Bastion, Mathias Church and other sites. Does not include any tickets to go inside any of these places, as that would be extra time/cost.

Frida is amazing and so knowledgeable! The tour was comprehensive and included more than I expected. It was very enjoyable!
