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.
