“The cops again! I’m getting tired of their tailing me all the time. In fact, since time immemorial! They just can’t leave you alone. I swear to God I’m innocent. How come there’s this wallet in my pocket you’re asking me about? Well, someone or other must have put it in my pocket! How else can it be here? Because I didn’t steal it, I swear to God. I haven’t picked a pocket in my whole life! Of course, such small-time figures are rife in this area, no wonder they think I’m one of them. Wait till I tell you what’s going on here, then you’ll see for yourselves that I have nothing to do with them. How ’bout getting a move on before the cops catch up with us…? ”

Willie Slick, a small-time pickpocket will be your guide for the next two hours if you join us to one of our most popular thematic walking tours in Budapest. He’ll be talking about the Buda Castle, old crimes and executions, the people and the buildings here, he’ll be telling you fascinating stories about everything that has happened here in the past centuries.

I know the place inside out, so why not join me for two hours and see “the best and the most” of Budapest.

“From the street, nothing can be seen, just a battered façade, an obscure gateway, and a massive double door … Do you want to know what is hiding inside? Step in with us, and you will find yourself in a magical world of centuries-old trees, colorful flowers, marble wells and shady benches along the winding paths – green oases in the midst of the concrete jungle, which reveal the harmonious coexistence of man and nature in an urban environment, and invite us to rest and to contemplate. These inner gardens and parks squatting among the apartment houses guard the secrets of their onetime residents: they tell us stories of glory and defeat, love and death – and thus make the history of the city living and tangible. During our 2.5-hour walk we gain access to some beautiful private gardens which are otherwise closed to the public; we also visit a cloister garden and one of the prettiest inner-city parks. While you learn a lot about the development and the botanical curiosities of Budapest, you can be carried away by the true tales of a long-ago town.
