Description

While in Vienna don’t miss your chance to visit Budapest. The "Paris of the east" is only two hours away from Vienna!

Budapest, the Hungarian capital stands for Gipsy music, the typical Gulyas stew, and amazing architecture from the turn of the centuries. While Buda was the seat of the Hungarian kings for ages, Pest's heyday was the fin-de-siècle, when Hungary celebrated its first millennium. 

With a friendly driver depart from your hotel in Vienna in a private limousine or van. Heading east cross the Hungarian border and drive through the Hungarian lowlands to Budapest.

Upon arrival in Budapest meet your local expert guide for a comprehensive private city tour in English covering the city's most beautiful sights. By car you reach the top of the Gellert hill: towering over the Danube it offers unparalleled postcard views! Then you visit Buda's medieval castle district. Here you see Trinity Square with the gothic Matyas church and the famous Fisherman’s Bastion as well as the massive Buda Castle. The actual castle is a replication from the time of communism but it’s predecessors date as far back as the 13th century!

Crossing the famous chain bridge, Budapest's emblem, you reach Pest where you first pay a visit to the sumptuous St. Stephen's Basilica. Named after the patron saint of Hungary it accommodates the country's most important Christian reliquary: King Stephen's right hand! In Pest you also see the beautiful parliament, the Heroe's Square, the elegant Andrassy Avenue with the opera house and the lively Vaci Street street in the city center.

After the city tour treat yourself to a delicious Hungarian meal (not included) in one of the city's many great restaurants. Your guide will gladly suggest lunch options in Budapest and handle your table reservations.

Spend the afternoon at leisure in  Pest's lively center for shopping or to further explore the city. Or bring your bathing suit and soak away the afternoon in Budapest's famous Gellert Bath (admission not included). In the late afternoon meet your driver for the return trip to Vienna.
