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.

No puedo decir nada malo del guía (estuvo estupendo) pero creo que el castillo en sí no da para un tour de 2 horas. De habarlo sabido hubiera hecho el tour del barrio judio y hubiera caminado por libre en el castillo.

Fue muy productivo realizar este tour con Juanjo, de hecho hice este en la mañana y tomé con el mismo otro por la tarde... Practicamente ese día conocí lo más importante y relevante de Budapest... Su historia, sitios importantes y recibí recomendaciones de dónde podía comer, cambiar dinero, etc.... Excelente servicio!!!
