What you'll do

You will meet me in famous Andrassy Avenue, UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE. I will show you "my" Budapest, it's history and my own experiences. Learn about the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Queen Sissy, the freedom fighters & Revolutionaries. You will pass the Opera, the House of Terror and hear about the dark side of Hungarian History. The famous Boulevard ends at the Hero's Square, a a symbol of 1000 years of history, but the tour has just started. Did you know that Budapest houses approx. 140 thermal wells ? One of them is used in Szechenyi Spa, the largest historical Spa in the City Park. On the way you stop at a "Fake" Castle, which became real. Returning to Downtown you pass the Jewish Quarter and at Stephen's Basilica I will share the secret of the "Holy Right" with you. Cross with me the Financial District and meet former US President Ronald Reagan on Liberty Square and behind him the stunning Parliament. Ride along the Danube Bank on a convenient bicycle path. Discover Buda, the Chain Bridge and Castle Garden before returning to Pest, to the Grand Market Hall the Great Synagogue and back to Andrassy Ave. Check also for our afternoon-tour "Adventure Off the beaten tracks" !
