In 1956, Budapest presided over the Hungarian Uprising—a revolution against Soviet rule that was quickly crushed. With this private tour, visit the sites and hear about the rebellion in a depth hard to replicate if touring alone. Check out squares and districts where protests were held, and hear testimonies that capture the events and Soviet repression with an intensity you wouldn’t experience independently. Refreshments and hotel pickup are included.
