Before going to Budapest I did some research and found this tour group, definitely happy that I did. The tour guide was really enthusiastic, conducted the tour at a very good pace and had a lot of fun facts to give to fill us with. What I also liked was the little pamphlets they gave to us with facts about... More

The tour is so interesting, and the tour guides are very nice and enthusiastic. We were around 100 people, so they separated all in four differents groups. The guide of our gruop knew a lot about the history of Budapest, hungarian history, language, politics and everything. Also she gave us a lot of useful tips about where go to eat,... More

The tour is fantanstic. They show you around budapest and tell you a lot about it's history. Yea it is a dark history but that's clear after nazi occupation & stalinism. We also took the communism walk. It's really worth it if you don't got a lot of time in budapest. although I have to say the walk is more... More

This is a good, basic intro to the city and we really enjoyed our tour. It was a manageable size - though I can see how this part of it might be hit or miss - and our guide was really great. And it's free, so hard to complain. One thing to be aware of if you have young kids:... More

I took the Communism tour, highly interesting and catering for all levels of knowledge about communism. Tales of Hungarian Communism from a personal point of view with the guide sharing stories from her parents, grandparents as well as some experiences of her own as a child. This is not a sightseeing tour, more of a learning experience.

The view from Castle hill and Fisherman's bastion are fantastic!The tips and... More

The "communist walking tour" does not go anywhere or show you many things related to communism in the city of Budapest. In fact, if you are going to do the communist walking tour DO NOT do the general tour before hand because you will stop at the exact same places, the same starting point, the same square with the statue...
