  • Basically the morning small group portion of the tour takes you to the oldest church in Budapest and then to the National history museum. Photos are only allowed outside for both. Interesting frescos inside the church and the museum is full of history artifacts. There is even a display of Hungarian costumes according to the region. I did not do the wlking tour as I had seen the sight on the previous day.
