Our 4-hour Private Communist walking Tour and guide were excellent. Our guides English was perfect, and he was very qualified to speak to the citys communist history, both as to events and as to the personal experience of the citizens of Budapest. Besides that, he was a delightful and thoughtful person. Our guide really made us feel like we had experienced some of the things he had experienced. Our guides personal experiences made us feel like we were getting the straight scoop and not just what we wanted to hear. Logistically, the owner, Suzy, was great to work with. I highly recommend the CurioCityBudapest Private Communist Tour.

We chose this tour to gain a deeper understanding of this period in the city's history and to see beyond the top tourist sights. With our fantastic guide Martin, we covered quite a bit of territory by foot and public transit. Martin is the perfect guide: knowledgeable, personable, and thoughtful. We highly recommend this tour.

If you want to go back in time and learn about the communist era of Budapest, this is a very interesting tour. We walked with Bogota in the cold but it was VERY interesting. Excellent way to also see some major landmarks, such as Parliament, St. Stephen's Basilica. Thanks Bogata!
