About the tour

During this 60 minutes long live virtual tour, Adam will walk you through the heart of Pest, which is one of the most interesting parts of Budapest’s city centre. He'll introduce you to the second largest place of worship in Hungary. After that we will walk across the Liberty square which is filled with tons of history allowing us to talk about the Monarchy times, Cold War and about certain aspects of the political transition. The icing on the cake is the House of Parliament building which is one of the hundred wonders of the world and also listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site. This tour can be a perfect complement to any of our virtual tours in the Buda Castle, or even to my historical Jewish quarter tour as this tour covers a different part of Pest side than the so called Jewish quarter.


Meet Adam

Adam

Working as a tourist guide was not my first career choice, but it seems to be the right choice. For a while I followed a sort-of standard path: getting my bachelor, and my masters degree and started to work for a multinational company. Meanwhile my interest towards my hometown kept growing to the point that my friends convinced me to return to school and get my licence to become a tourist guide. As the saying goes: the rest is history. I have been in the business since 2011 and regardless of all the hardship, difficulties, uncertainty I still have passion for my profession. Which I hope will be obvious for you once you take a tour with me in Budapest, or in the Hungarian countryside. By joining a tour with me you will get two in one: a professional, licenced guide and an amateur urban photography enthusiast. Both are very handy when it comes to live, virtual tours. You can expect great angles, excellent postcard opportunities and a dry sense of humour during my tours as I strongly believe in entertaining while educating.  Kind regards

An entertaining and educational tour with Adam. I found the shoe memorial very touching and thank Adam for bringing parts of history to my attention that I wasn’t aware of. He tells of these ‘incidents’ in a straight forward, unbiased way. The only way to teach now, I feel.

Adam's tours make you laugh, and make you think. This tour was terrific, and it was made even more special by hearing his personal stories.
