In 1956, Budapest presided over the Hungarian Uprising—a revolution against Soviet rule that was quickly crushed. With this private tour, visit the sites and hear about the rebellion in a depth hard to replicate if touring alone. Check out squares and districts where protests were held, and hear testimonies that capture the events and Soviet repression with an intensity you wouldn’t experience independently. Refreshments and hotel pickup are included.

Tour guide was very polite...

Tour guide was very polite professional and Knowledgeable. Spent time explaining key areas and events in Hungarian History. However, The tour was too general, with not enough time or information devoted to the 1956 Revolution. the reason why we had booked this tour. we had studied the Revolution before and a lot of key areas where missed, even though we walked past them. With that, we did learn about other areas of Hungarian History and visited places we had not been Before. The tour guide did admit that this was the first time he had taken this tour.
Mikolos was great. Very interesting...

This was an excellent tour by our knowledegable guide, Miklos who lived through the Communist era and was able to give personal insight into the times. We enjoyed the mix of walking and tram rides around the city and particularly the underground memorial to the 1956 Revolution. My partner and I have travelled extensively around Europe in the last 4 years and this was one of the best tours we've done. Thank you Miklos!
