About the tour

This virtual walk takes you along almost the entire section of the Pest bank of the river Danube which is listed by the UNESCO as World Cultural heritage.  During this roughly 45 minutes long sightseeing tour Adam will introduce you to the different historical layers of Pest riverfront. From Roman times through WWII to Communism many different layers will be uncovered.  The Danube promenade was the first pedestrian zone in Budapest, dotted with plenty of outdoor cafes designed to enjoy the beauties of Buda from across the river.  As the Chain bridge will go under a multiple year long reconstruction, as long as it is possible, Adam will walk to the middle of the bridge to give you a feel of crossing the bridge. The tour will conclude on the bridge with a breathtaking view to the Buda Castle and to the House of Parliament building.

Having been on four thoroughly engagning tours of Budapest with Adam, he has certainly set a high bar for any future virtual tours. He is knowledgeable, charming, and delightful. Every tour has been memorable. I'm now seriously considering a trip to Budapest and hope Adam will lead a tour in 3-D.

Having Hungarian ancestry and visited Hungary including Budapest ten years ago, I was looking forward to the walking tour of the riverbank including my favourite bridge. Adam's stories and histoical knowledge is fabulous, and I loved his mannerizims and humour while handling professionalizm at the same time. I will watch out for his tours in the future. Well done and köszönöm Ádám!

Adam is fab! He has a great sense of humour and his tours are always both fun and informative. He has a great eye for taking postcards which makes memories of his tours so special. This tour was particularly poignant as we visited the Chain Bridge for the last time before it is dismantled. Adam stopped speaking as we ended the tour by walking back across the bridge. He suggested that we could listen to the love song Budapest if we wanted to but I chose to just listen to the silence and the emotion overwhelmed me, as it did many others.
