      A Budapest local will greet you at your hotel lobby, apartment, or wherever you might have checked into for a true Hungarian experience. Being in the presence of a local historian is sure to make you feel privileged because you'll have the advantage of learning about the geographical layout of Hungary's capital.

      From figuring out the local currency to broadening your awareness on Budapest's public transport system, getting acquainted will be easy. Guidebooks and maps will be provided, allowing you to appreciate the finest destinations for shopping, dining, and entertainment around the metropolis.

      Expect the ruins of old Roman fortifications to catch your eye as you stroll along the city's snaking streets. Occasionally, your stride will slow down and you will stop at ancient structures, all the while listening to a historian talk about each building’s individual significance. Notice the rich cultures and customs of the local people, who will react kindly when you engage in conversation using basic Hungarian vocabulary. Your seasoned local tour guide will teach you how to pronounce simple words, like "Jó napot", which means "Good day!" These phrases will come in handy when you mingle with Budapest's residents at traditional baths, cafes and markets. By the end of your 2-hour orientation tour, it is up to you where you choose to visit with the help of your trusty map and fresh knowledge on the city.

A trip to the “Capital of Freedom” will expose you to some of Europe’s most astounding landmarks, including St. Stephen’s Basilica, Hungarian National Gallery, Vajdahunyad Castle, and Great Market Hall, to name a few.
