BIG BUS SIGHTSEEING TOUR OF BUDAPEST
The organizers of the 23rd IATEFL-Hungary conference are proud to invite you to a very special Budapest sightseeing tour with the Big Bus company and we asked MARK Andrews to be our guide :)
The sightseeing tour is the perfect introduction to one of the greatest cities in Europe.Whether it is the magnificent Parliament Building, the leafy, classical Andrassy Avenue or the old Castle District, Big Bus Tours’ fleet of open-top double-decker buses can show you the prime vantage points to view this stunning city.
So sit back, relax and enjoy Budapest.
The bus will leave from the parking lot in front of the conference venue, the International Business School in Tárogató út from on Friday, 4th of October, 2013 at 10 am. The tour will last 4 hours, including two stops in the Castle District and Hero's Square, just for you to come back in time for lunch and the Opening Plenary.
The tour costs 4000 HUF (13 Euros), the fee should be paid before departure. Make sure to reserve a place, as there is a limited number of seats available.
We hope you will enjoy this opportunity and will participate in the tour :)
The conference organizing committee
"This year I will be doing the guided commentary of our bus tour through Budapest starting from the conference venue at 10 a.m. on the Friday morning of the conference. It will be from a perspective of somebody who first came to Budapest 34 years ago, while studying in Belgrade and then ended up working here with the British Council and at Eötvös Loránd University, the oldest and biggest university in Hungary, from 1996. It will also look at ways of exploring local landscapes from an English teaching perspective, based on the idea that learning English is also about understanding your own culture more."
