Experience how it feels to drive a two-stroke-engine East German 'wonder', and get familiar with the mechanism of the steering gear. Whilst steering this engineering feat, you will be visiting communist sights, as well as any other sightseeing sites, with your local professional and licensed guide. To start the tour, you will meet your private guide at a previously arranged meeting point, such as your hotel, apartment, or any other spot in the city. Since this is a customized tour, the route may vary according to the meeting point, but will always include certain sights. You will visit the famous Liberty Statue on the top of Gellért Hill, the Last Soviet Monument at Liberty Square, the Kossuth Square and its communist memorials at Parliament and an original segment of the Berlin Wall at the House of Terror Museum. You will also visit the 1956 Memorial close to Heroes' Square and can choose to visit Memento Park, where all of the remaining and removed communist statues can be visited. The tour can end at the famous Retro Museum downtown where you can see all the most famous and iconic symbols, relics and everything related to the socialist era. A true time travel where you actually can experience this time period of our history even by tasting the most famous food in the bistro of the venue. Hope to see you soon, Comrade! ;)
