5-Day Sightseeing Tour from Budapest to Vienna

During your five-day tour of Budapest and Vienna, discover the Gothic, Renaissance, medieval and Baroque features of the cities, and see with your guide the many impressive monuments that make the city landscapes so lovely. Renowned architects and artists worked throughout the centuries to create these architectural jewels, many of which today are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

You have the choice of staying your four nights in either 3- or 4-star hotels. Both options include breakfast; you will have free time each day for all other meals.

Please see the Itinerary section below for details on each day of the tour.


Day 1
When you arrive at the Budapest airport, take your included private transfer to your well-located hotel in the center of Budapest. After checking in, the rest of the day is yours to explore the city on your own.

The largest city in Hungary, Budapest is full of UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Buda Castle, Andrássy Avenue and Heroes' Square.

Day 2
Enjoy your buffet breakfast (included), and then choose when you’d like to take your 1.5-hour panoramic guided tour of Budapest – either in the morning or afternoon. See the main sights in both Buda and Pest, the city’s two sections. Pass by examples of some of Budapest's finest architectural achievements, such as the magnificent neo-Gothic Parliament building, home of the Holy Hungarian Crown.

Be impressed by the old Jewish “Golden Triangle” quarter, and then visit Matthew’s Church and the Fisherman’s Bastion, from where you’ll enjoy a spectacular view over the whole city!

During the time you are not on your tour, you will have free time to discover more of the city on your own.

Day 3
Enjoy your included buffet breakfast, and then make your way to the train station (transport at own expense; approx. 27.50 euros per car) to depart Budapest for Vienna by train (train ticket included; departures every hour). During the 2.5-hour train ride to the Austrian capital, enjoy views out the window of the beautiful landscape.

After checking in to your centrally located hotel, take advantage of free time for the rest of the day. Vienna is a city of culture, music and classical architecture, and is famous as the home of psycho-analyst Sigmund Freud; discover its beautiful sights at your leisure.

Day 4
After your buffet breakfast (included), choose either a morning or an afternoon 3.5-hour guided tour of Vienna, which will give you a thorough overview of the city’s most significant historical sights. You'll see the State Opera House, Parliament, City Hall, the Burgtheater, the Votive Church and a few museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts. Schonbrunn Palace is another highlight of your sightseeing tour; it was the residence of Empress Elizabeth, affectionately known as ‘Sissi’ to the Austrians.
