Between the 7th and 9th of June there will be an event happening at our meeting point, the Elisabeth square, close to the Budapest Eye Ferris wheel. All our free walking tours will run as usual and You can still find us a few meters away from the wheel in our blue uniforms and with our blue free tour flag. Someone will always go around the meeting point with the flag to help you find us! :)
The event is part of the “Week of Chinese Tourism and Culture” and is commemorating that Hungary and China got into a diplomatic relationship 70 years ago.
