About the guru Paseando

We are a young team that left Spain in 2009 and we are in London to create this beautiful project. At the request of our "walkers" we grew up in Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Malaga, Cordoba and Budapest, teaching these cities to thousands of Spanish speakers. We are professional guides and we are madly in love with every corner of the cities we teach.

About the tour

In this guided tour with a guide in Spanish we will make an exciting trip to the Soviet past of the Hungarian capital, from the birth of the communist movement in 1918 until its fall. We will know how the regime was installed in the political system, education, culture, religion and even in the daily life of the Hungarians. We will learn who Carlos IV or Istán Tisza were and what they have to do with the so-called Chrysanthemum Revolution, a turning point in the history of Hungary. We will also know why at this time it is known as “red terror” or what is the Ugrofinesa theory, while we stroll through emblematic places such as the National Museum, the Interior City Theater, the old radio building or the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We will end the tour by visiting Corvin köz, the most symbolic place of the 1956 revolution. During World War II, this city was one of the most potent places of communism in Europe. Enjoy history in its purest form with our Free Communist Budapest Tour.

Increíble! Qué buen recorrido ofrece Fanni, además de ser joven y entusiasta, es húngara entonces tuvimos oportunidad de conocer por su experiencia, de padres y abuelos un poco de la historia, lo hace ameno y divertido. Lo recomiendo !

Muy entretenido e interesante. Nuestra guía Agatha no se dejó opacar por el clima horrible que nos tocó y pasamos un muy buen rato!

Es interesante por conocer el pasado de la ciudad y no solo los monumentos o edificios más importantes; pero tuvimos una guía de Budapest que, a pesar de que hablaba bien el español, se iba mucho por las ramas y le daba muchas vueltas a las cosas, al final era difícil seguir las explicaciones.

Aparte, ponía que el tour comenzaba a las 11 y duraba 2h 15min aproximadamente. No fue así, no sé cuánto pudo extenderse porque tuvimos que irnos antes de que terminara, pero más de 3h 15 min. Es algo que deberían avisar porque nosotras nos habíamos organizado el día contando con que la duración avisada era la que anunciaban.
