Buda Caves Reviews & Ratings
Who would have thought about that a modern European capital such as Budapest has an extraordinary cave system under the surface? Come and see with your own eyes and take amazing photos! Budapest has so many different faces, I was glad to see this one! I don't recommend to bring your small children with you and consider that there are some pretty steep stairs what you have to climb. If you are in average health, you'll be fine.
Place close to city center, you can get there easy with public transport which will bring you directly on spot. Very interesting tour in caves with English guide. Great place to get yourself out from city meanwhile it's just few min anyway from city center. Worth visiting
Great tour in English. Quite cold when you get down low so bring a jacket. Also a big ladder to climb. Really fascinating place though and definitely worth a visit if you're on holiday in Budapest. Cave-tastic.
Great cave. Tour is informative. You follow a concrete path with lots of stairs, but you can really get a sense of how big it is and what it was like before stairs were put in.
We had a great time in the caves. Our guide was really knowledgeable and spoke amazing English. The tour was quite extensive and we saw all different types of rock formations and quite a few bats too! Definitely recommend. We went in winter and there was only us and another couple on the tour so very private.
