🏆 Free Tour "The Best of Budapest", Hungary Unfolded

Duration: 2h and 15min
Languages: English, Spanish
Quality Verified Registered on August 09, 2018

If you're interested in taking a historical tour that just involves memorizing dates and facts that you'll forget in no time, then we might not be the right tour for you. At Go Zeppelin Tours, we believe that truly experiencing a new place is just as important as learning about it. Our team of guides are all accredited by the government of Hungary and are passionate about Budapest. We tell the story of the city in a unique way that will make you think about history from a different perspective. Of course, we will give you dates, facts, and tell you about important figures and events, but we'll also talk about politics, art, religion, and some of the most controversial moments in Hungary's history. Our goal is not just to teach you history, but to help you understand it. We know that it's hard to retain all the information from a tour, but we want to make sure you leave with a deep understanding of the city. By the end of the tour, you'll have a real and unique point of view of Budapest, far from the idyllic and fictional image that most tourist guides offer.

Nuestra guía, en los dos tour que hicimos en la ciudad, fue Ángela. Nos encantó, la forma tan amena de contar la historia y su sarcasmo hace que estés totalmente atento a sus explicaciones, muy divertidas :) Aparte cualquier curiosidad, duda que nos surgiese durante el tour nos lo explicaba encantada. Ha sido un placer conocer Budapest de la mano de ella.
