About
Please be aware that this tour is adapted to the local regulations post Covid-19. Our hosts will deliver this experience with the required equipment always keeping the distance suggested by local authorities. It will be safe and entertaining! Discover why Budapest’s ruin bars are worth a trip to Hungary! Let a local guide you through the coolest nightlife you’ve ever come across. Explore massive abandoned buildings like disused warehouses and decaying factories that turned into the hippest bars or clubs. You’ll start the tour at the entrance of the Szimpla Kert, where the first ruined bar came to be. Take in the quirky feel and cool vibe as you walk past the many different rooms filled with treasures, fairy lights, and mismatched furniture. Enjoy the rhythm of the music or catch the local Farmers Market on Sunday. Start your private tour with a glass of beer or wine.

Great Tour
Aug 2019 • Friends
Had a great time with Nick on the Ruin bars tour. We were 2 girls and he made us feel at ease and explained all about local traditions etc over drinks.
I loved that he is so passionate about his city and it's history good + bad.
Nick even saw us on to the night bus to make sure we got back to our apartment ok. Great communication both before and even after our tour to make sure we got back safe. Cannot recommend him enough.

Thanks again Nick for a great evening :)

Budapest ruin bars tour
Jul 2019 • Couples
I and the other three people with me felt we were ripped off. The tour was very unorganized and even though the guide was a nice person, he was ill equipped to give this tour. We were offered food along with drinks but never got it. I totally believe that the fee was too high for three drinks and little history of the region.

Ruin Bars Tour with Kata
May 2019 • Friends
Hello! I'm writing to let you know how wonderful Kata was at touring us around the Ruin Bar district in Budapest. She was on time, very professional and extremely knowledgeable on the areas we visited.
There were 4 of us in our group, all of us sell travel for a living and we're all seasoned travelers and have been on many guided tours.
Kata's personality is what made this tour so special and unique, she was an instant friend! :) I will highly recommend her to our clients traveling to Budapest for something out of the ordinary and memorable.

A lovely Ruin Bars Tour with Kata, a passionate guide
Apr 2019 • Solo
I did the ruins bars tour with Kata and it was a memorable experience. Kata is a very pleasant person passionate about her work and her city and this is what she communicates during her tour. She doesn't hesitate to go off the beaten-path to customize the experience and make you spend an unforgettable moment. Next time you're in Budapest make sure to meet here else you would be missing an amazing experience with an amazing person !

Ruin Pub Tour with Ágnes
May 2019 • Solo
I have been to Budapest several times but have never experienced the nightlife. I decided to book this tour to sample what I've been missing.
Ágnes gave me a detailed tour starting at the Szimpla Kertmozi and several other pubs in the old Jewish quarter.
I thoroughly enjoyed my evening. Ágnes is very intelligent and entertaining. This is a much better experience than the larger tour companies offer. I recommend this tour for anyone who wants to learn more about modern Hungarian life from the Hungarian perspective- with a few drinks along the way.

Do this tour with Nick
Mar 2019 • Solo
Had an excellent tour! Nick stepped in after my original host was
unavailable - withlocals was great in organising a new tour and from
there I got in touch with Nick and he came up with a plan for me that
covered everything I was after. We got lucky with the weather and had
a stunning, relaxed afternoon stroll - starting at Szimpla Kert, a
cool ruin bar, winding around some of the main sights in Budapest,
taking in some street art, and finishing near the Parliament after a
quick look inside the Bazilica. I might've followed a similar route on
any other tour, but would've missed out on Nick's anecdotes and
insights, and great chat, the best part. He's an absolute natural,
this guy, and organising where to go, when to meet, what to see was
just easy. I'd really recommend doing a tour with Nick ! It was
perfect for a solo trip like mine, but I reckon Nick knows this city
like the back of his hand, he'd come up with a group route just as
effortlessly. I've come away from my weekend in Budapest with good
memories, great photos and a new friend. Thanks withlocals and Nick,
thanks to you !

Fabulous Ruin Bar Tour
Oct 2018 • Couples
Thanks very much Nicholas, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the ruin
bars, we would never have found them on our own in the time we had
available and we are definitely langos converts now, very tasty
meal. For us it is important to get as close to a local feel as
possible when travelling and Nicholas gave us that experience in
spades, we couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again Nicholas, keep
up the excellent work and continue to display the obvious pride you
have for your beautiful city. We love Budapest and are envious of the
people who call it home. Cheers!

Ok if you like odd retro bars
Oct 2018
Its a load of small bars in what was once an old run down building. Lots of graffiti, junk furniture and cave like bars. No real atmosphere.

Fantastic Ruin Bars tour!
Oct 2018 • Friends
We had heard a lot about the ruin bars in Budapest so were keen to
visit. Nicholas met us outside the famous Szimpla Kert bar to start
our tour and we didn't stop chatting for the next 2 hours! He was the
perfect host - providing information about the bars and the wider
Budapest areas as well. We had lots of questions and our conversations
went in lots of directions - he managed to handle all of this so we
were very appreciative. I would thoroughly recommend the tour and
Nicholas!
