Are you looking for a historical tour, full of dates, characters and data that you will forget in the blink of an eye? Insurance? At Go Zeppelin Tours we are convinced that to know a new place not only the data is useful, but also what we experience while discovering it is essential. We are a team of guides accredited by the government of Hungary, in love with Budapest, who one day decided to roll the blanket over our heads and we started to tell you the history of this city in a totally different way. Of course we are going to give you dates, data, battles, anecdotes, kings, but we are also going to talk to you about politics, art, religion and we will talk about some of the most controversial moments in the history of this country in order to understand its current events. Go Zeppelin Tours we are guides but we are also travelers like you. We know that after a tour there is very little information that is retained, so our goal is not to teach history but to understand it. We tell you already, you will not remember any date when you get home but the history behind those numbers yes. You will leave with the certainty that you have known the city from a unique and real point of view, far removed from the idyllic and fictional image that most of the tourist guides offer you.

About the Tour

They say it looks like Berlin, Vienna or Paris, but remember that comparisons are odious and with this free tour you will discover that Budapest is Budapest, a city with a unique and unrepeatable personality with its own name. It is almost impossible to resume the fascinating history of Budapest in just two hours, but we can help you get to know it better through a whirlwind journey through the most relevant monuments and events of its past, calling things by their name.

 

We will remember the greatness of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and how it completely changed the appearance of this city, we will discover what happened during the Second World War and the true role that Hungary had as an ally of Hitler. We will talk about the communist era and the Revolution of 56 and yes, we will also talk about the Empress Sissi, but from a slightly different perspective ... And we can just tell you up to here for the moment. This is an essential free tour to have a first contact with the history of Hungary and its incredible capital.

 

What you will discover with us on this free tour:

· Hungarian Parliament
