Guided Tours from E-Magine Tours: Get to Know Our Routes
Being an adult is all about being independent, which sometimes means we like to plan everything on our own, even the smallest details of a holiday trip. However, sometimes it is better to loosen up a bit and let somebody else take the lead. Guided tours are all about relaxation when you can finally give up control and just enjoy what the trip can offer to you. In this article, we’ll walk you through our guided tour options and how our expert guides can help you explore Budapest.
When to choose guided tours?
As we said, being your own master and deciding what and when to do is huge freedom, but it also means you have to plan every little detail, which can be a little exhausting. Holidays and trips should be about relaxation. However, enjoying the drift with the tide is not the only reason why we recommend a good, guided tour. Let’s go through the pros!
If you don’t know the city
To get to know a city you can’t just rely on the online research you made beforehand. This is especially true if you visit a place for the first time. Every culture and city has its perks and being aware of those could be really useful. Not to mention the fact that the locals know the best places a foreigner should visit when they spend their holiday in the Hungarian capital. A well-informed tour guide will give you the best ideas during guided tours on how to live like the locals during your stay.
If you want to have professional guidance with a local viewpoint
Budapest is a city with rich history and cultural traditions. If you are planning everything by yourself, it is so easy to miss a spot or an interesting fact that a tour guide, on the other hand, would mention to you and tell you more about it.

They also know the easiest and best ways to get around the capital and can offer you a bunch of activities after the guided tours, which might not have crossed your mind otherwise.
