About the tour

They say that one who does not learn from the mistakes of history, could be condemned to repeat it. In addition to its beauty and majesty, if Hungary and Budapest stand out, it is because of its rugged history. During this free tour we will dive through the turbulent past of Hungary during the twentieth century, focusing on both the stage of the so-called "occupation" Nazi, during World War II, as in the more than four decades of socialist regime. Of course, we will address both stories from a perspective that is sure to surprise you. Do you come with us?

WHAT WILL WE VISIT DURING OUR ROUTE?

- Wall of the Jewish Ghetto

- Rumbach Street Synagogue

- Monument to the Righteous Among the Nations

- Kazinczy Street Synagogue

- Szimpla Kertmozi (Ruin Bar)

- Tree of Life

- Great Synagogue of Budapest

- Hotel Astoria

- Sissi Bridge

POINT OF MEETING AND TIME:

Deák Ferenc tér 5, at the exit of the metro station of the same name (where the red, blue and yellow lines cross), in front of the entrance of the cream-colored church. Thursday and Saturday at 4pm.

LOOK FOR THE PURPLE UMBRELLA !!

DURATION:

2 hours and 45 minutes

CONSIDERATIONS:

- The 80% of the tour will take place in the Jewish Quarter and will deal with the events related to the deportations carried out during the Second World War. The remaining 20% ​​will focus on the stage of the socialist regime in connection with the current Budapest. The reason ... we explain it to you at the beginning of the tour!

- Both historical periods will be approached from a well-founded and justified perspective. We, as well as official guides, are social scientists, so although we understand that history can be interpreted from different prisms, we will always give you a vision based on empirical arguments. That is to say, this tour is not based on having learned a script and releasing it by heart, but our idea would be the opposite.

- A minimum number of 6 people is required to start the tour.

- Groups of more than 6 people should consult prior availability.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

El Tour fue fantastico. El guia muy ameno y conocedor. Lo recomiendo 100% para quienes quieran empaparse de la historia del Pueblo Judio en la bella ciudad de Budapest.

El guia ofrece una parada de unos 20 minutos para recargar energias en un Ruin Bar, lo que es muy acertado. ya que mi unica sugerencia es que quizas el tour podria acortarse unos 30 mins haciendo el punto de encuentro en la Opera en vez del lugar donde nos encontramos.

Lo recomeindo 100 % !

Por la mañana hicimos el Free tour, y nos pareció tan interesante y tan bien explicado por Adrián que nos animamos a hacer este otro esa misma tarde, lo cual fue todo un acierto. Interesante, instructivo y muy ameno. Altamente recomendable.
