Full description
Meet your English-speaking tour guide at the impressive Heroes' Square, the largest square in Budapest. Visit the Millennium Monument, commemorating 1000 years of Hungarian history. In front of the monument you will find the grave of the unknown soldier, and on the two sides of the square you will see the Arts Hall and the Fine Arts Museum. Next, head to City Park, the oldest public park in the world. Walk over a bridge to reach an island on the lake, home to the romantic Vajdahunyad Castle. In the inner courtyard of the castle you will discover some interesting public statues including that of Anonymus, the first history writer of Hungary. All around the courtyard there are copies of buildings representing different periods and styles of Hungarian architecture. You will also hear the scariest story of the tour, and see a statue of Dracula as well as the copy of the Transylvanian castle tower where the real Dracula (Vlad Dracul the Impaler) was born. The last stop of the tour will be the main building of the famous Szechenyi Baths, the largest thermal bath of Europe. After the tour you can enter the baths to try their magic effect, or you can take the subway from the station next to the baths to return directly to the city center.

Absolutely amazing trip! Despite the fact that it is not as long when you see and hear a lot of exciting things that you might not otherwise know! Our guide Noemi was absolutely amazing, she was extremely sweet and she really knew what she was talking about and could answer all our questions. You could really feel that she was happy to tell about the places we were and that she was proud of her home, which was really cool because it made the experience so much better. All through a fantastic and exciting trip with lots of culture! Can 100% be recommended, I would definitely take it on again if / when I get back there !!

Super expérience ! Visite privée d’un quartier très sympa. Nous devions sélectionné forcément anglais mais finalement quand elle a su que nous étions français elle nous a fait toute la visite dans notre langue avec un très bon vocabulaire ! Merci beaucoup à cette super guide, adorable en plus. Nous étions en couple et nous recommandons pour les passionnés d’histoire.
