This was great tour. We were the only two on our tour which was great as we could ask questions and really have an informative discussion on the topic. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn a bit about the modern history of Hungary.
Saw Liberty Square, the Parliament Buildings all three competition winners and the underground 1956 memorial museum. Also had a tram ride. Bogada gave a very informative view of Hungarian history from WWI and the implications today . There were just the two of us, and the tour ran 3 hours. I would highly recommend it.
Tomas gave us a fascinating insight both into the dark elements of Hungarian communism and fascism, along with the gems of joy and hope under the regimes, such as board games and childhood scrapbooks. Despite at times freezing weather, Tomas was incredibly enthusiastic. He was superbly knowledgable about his subject. This is an outstanding tour.
George loves his job and his subject, We have left Budapest enlightened, only thing that would help is audio recording of the whole talk , so many details to bombard yourself with .Mix of a lot of historical details and elements of fun also. Great tour, great guide. Thank You.

Our guide Laszlo was very knowledgeable about the subject and easy to understand. There were only 3 in the group. The tour started in the basement reviewing some artifacts, news articles, and photos from the time period very interesting. We then walked around Pest where he explained the historical significance of various buildings, statues, and monuments. Our tour ended at the Parliament building at the memorial for the 1956 Revolution. The memorial is extremely well done and emotionally moving a must-see. Very good tour over all.
This tour was excellent. Our guide spent time explaining everyday life from the communist era in a mock up living room reminiscent of that time. The living room included games, books and other items of the day. We then went on a walking tour of the city to see sights relevant to communism and George, our guide, explained everything in detail at each stop. We learned a lot about that period of time for Hungary. He answered all of our questions thoroughly. He was an expert on this time period and it showed through his knowledge and enthusiasm. A great tour!!!
I would highly recommend this tour to everyone and the cost is very reasonable for what you get.

The second afternoon we were in Budapest, we did the Communism, Revolution, WWI, and WWII tour with Tomas. We were the only people signed up for the tour, so Tomas was happy to cater it to our personal interests. He took us back in time to Communist Budapest with photos, books, relics, soda, and other mementos of the past. Being huge history nerds, we monopolized his time and peppered him with questions. His passion for Budapest and history was palpable, and there wasn't a question that stumped him. When we finally emerged from communist Budapest, he took us on a walking tour of the city and shared more about the current events and modern-day Budapest. Our only regret was when we finished the tour and that we didn't have more time in Budapest. We will definitely be back though.
George is a fantastic guide with a deep knowledge of his city and the events that have shaped current day Budapest. He knows a lot about history and politics and he is eager to share his passion. Take advantage of the amazing opportunity to learn everything you can from him.
