What You Can Expect
Continue your walking tour through the former working-class districts which have been transformed into a hub of vibrant cultural life since communist days. Hear stories about the places where Budapest's underground scene started under the old regime.
Then, you'll walk across the River Danube to Buda, where you’ll visit the A38 Ship. The former Ukrainian cargo ship has been reincarnated into one of Budapest’s most important cultural centers and trendiest live music venues, and is where your tour will end.
My boyfreind and I booked this a mere 24hours before and we received our confirmation quickly.
Antonia was our guide and is very much a local who doesn't only know Budapest art and culture, it is her lifestyle. You know this as during the tour she'll acknowledge local acquaintances and discus how she herself discovered the things she will show you.
I really wouldn't of understood/ noticed the significance of the things pointed out and really aren't in any guide books Trust me I bought 3 before my trip. The tour is based mostly in 7th district, the modern young hub of the city with a complex past.It is a walking tour and you'll stop for a drink on route which allows you a little time to explore the venue alone at your pace.
You must be into arts in some form to enjoy it,history and politics of course plays a part of the tour but you don't need to be well versed in it as she explains well and it is only really discussed in context of what is being shown. If you are interested in 'Hungarians opinion about ...' she's happy to oblige you. Her english is fantastic and was well understood by all the nationalities on the tour. The tone is friendly, relaxed and light hearted. Expect hipster havens, peeping in on local artists at work and the products of community projects. At the end of the tour she was very accommodating in offering us tips during our stay of events going on and places we might like based on our tastes.
The Tour will take your afternoon but you leave the guide with a feeling of understanding the modern Budapest and its arty inhabitants. More than worth the time and money.
Antonia Vai is also a fantastic musician and we were fortunate to be able to pop in on a gig which we thoroughly enjoyed.
A really interesting tour, with a very welcoming and knowledgeable guide who clearly loved the city and wanted us, as visitors, to know more about its recent artistic history. A couple of pit-stops for coffee and mulled cider were much appreciated on a cold November afternoon! Would highly recommend.
