Let me tell you about the capital's 2000 and about the country's 1000 years of history. I'll explain why Budapest is a beautiful mixture of different cultures, architectures and arts.

A Recent Review of this tour

Julia was a wonderful guide. She was very informative about the history of Budapest becoming 800 to the present day. She took us to many important places that showed this history in greater depth. We really felt we had a greater understanding of this country. We also went to some really fun places that again showed more of the history, like the Ruin Bar. Thank you for a great day!
