About the tour

During this live tour, Adam will walk you through the Northern part of the Buda Castle hill, which is one of the least visited parts of the UNESCO-listed hilltop neighborhood. The 45 minutes long walk starts at the Western promenade of the Castle district with views overlooking the Buda hills. Before walking down the streets of this off-the-beaten-path residential neighborhood, Adam will introduce you to the Mary Magdalene church which is one of the rare medieval monuments of Budapest. Fans of architecture will love the National Archives, while the viewpoint of the top of Vienna Gate is a treat for those collecting postcards. The residential part of the Castle hill between the Vienna Gate and the Matthias Church was once home to a large Jewish community that played an important part in the medieval history of Hungary. As we walk towards the iconic Fisherman's bastion, your guide will show you the traces of the once flourishing Jewish community and will also tell you a few stories about those who've been awarded the Righteous Among the Nations title. The walk concludes with one of the nicest views Budapest can offer: the skyline of Pest with the House of Parliament building. This tour is an excellent complement to Adam's virtual tour in the Buda Castle and the Historical Jewish Quarter tour.


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
