Being a hands-on learner, I need to get as close as possible to the thing I am studying to understand it. But as a tourist, how do you get close to Communist Hungary? As an ex-pat living in Budapest, after years of living here and meeting people of all kinds, doesn’t make it that much easier. It’s not the kind... More

Our guide Miklos was the Communist tour. He is a relic of these times and that is what makes the tour unique: to be led by someone who experienced, lived through and survived the Soviet era. You can't get any closer to authentic. You can see 'those times' through his eyes. He tells you about what you can no longer... More

We chose a 1 hour Hungarian lesson with Balasz which was a great start to our holiday. He gave us some great tips and an insight into the Hungarian culture to help us really enjoy our weekend in Budapest. Really relaxed lesson and made us feel at ease. Would definitely recommend to anybody, no matter how short your visit is.... More

A different tour of Budapest with the family and a hungarian gentleman named Miklós. Best way to learn about a country is to listen to the locals, right ? And that was fun ! Highly recommended

We visited Budapest in August 2012 and booked a 1 hour Fungarian lesson to get a taste of Hungarian culture and language. We were not disappointed. Our teacher, Nora, came to our hotel instead of meeting us at a cafe, as i find it difficult getting around, which i thought was lovely. She was a pleasant, helpful and engaging teacher... More

spent a few hours with Mikolos ( forgive spelling) who did a tour/ lecture on Hungary under Communism. Transformed a city break weekend. Peeled away lawyers and lets you see the city in a different light. Highly recommended

We had two tours with Fungarian while in Budapest, the first was a Foodie tour which happened perfectly as it was a rainy day and we spent our time in the gorgeous food market. It was so much more enjoyable with a local who could explain the foods, customs and cultures. We very much enjoyed our time with Miklos who... More

We arrived a good half an hour late after walking along Rákóczi ut instead of Rákóczi tér (big difference) looking for the meeting place. We were very hot and frazzled but our teacher Miklós was absolutely delightful and forgiving and quickly organised drinks to help us 'unfrazzle'. My cousin and I know a few Hungarian words, my partner was a... More

I am glad you liked the local restaurant. Sometimes we are hesitant to offer this restaurant because it's anything but posh. Sorry for the confusion about út, utca and tér (street, road and square). miklós More

We started our road trip of Hungary with an hour long lesson for the whole family - two adults and two kids aged 9 and 12. The nine year old was a bit disappointed to find himself taking part in a language lesson (!) but even he came round to it in the end.Our teacher was entertaining, kind and knowledgeable... More

Good point about the scrabble. Completely unfit for Hungarian since it's impossible to define what counts a word since they can be lengthened at will and players keep quarreling whether the word makes sense or not. miklós More

The hour spent at fungarian on our first morning was very worthwhile. We went from feeling very ignorant about Hungary to knowing a few of the customs and norms, as well as having a chance with the language. Of course an hour isn't going to make you fluent but having a few words pleased the locals when we tried them... More
