All the musts with the best extras!

The capital of Hungary is worth a full day tour! Besides all the World Heritage sites, we visit not-so-touristic, but equally beautiful places and amazing buildings in Budapest.
Do you know, where the first subway in the Europien continent is? Which is the second biggest Synagogue in the world? Who gave Budapest Zoo the first giraffe? Where and when was first gas light used in Europe at a construction-site? And what is the real Hungarian Goulash soup like? You will know the answers and many more if you visit Budapest with me!

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour with Katalin through Tours By Locals was awesome. She corresponded with us about changes that we wanted to the itinerary and also what we might like to see on our own for our extra days we were in Budapest. Very good suggestions. Her historical commentary was so interesting and enlightening. My husband is not the walker that the rest of the group was, but she always found a nice coffee house where he could enjoy the sights. Very accommodating and our 8 hours with Katalin were too short.
