What to expect

On this tour, you will explore the downtown of Budapest on the east bank of the Danube River. Pest is the younger part of the capital that - being the fastest growing city in the last decades of the 19th century - is today the bustling metropolis of Hungary, making it the center of education, politics, nightlife - and sights to see!

You will learn about the history of Pest, about the different mentality of Pest and Buda residents and you will be given an account of how is it to live here today: for locals, for the young, for the old and for the expat community. The guides are not afraid to answer any question & enter any topic about Budapest and Hungary.
