What You Can Expect

Budapest Sightseeing Tour by Land and Water

Budapest Sightseeing Tour by Land and Water

You don’t have to choose between touring the beautiful city on four wheels or taking in the sights from the deck of a pleasure boat! After meeting your guide in central Budapest, you’ll do both on board your comfortable amphibious coach.

Heading down the busy streets of the capital, your coach will take you past all its highlights. See the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the first example of Neo-Renaissance architecture in Budapest, completed in 1865. Then, go by the Hungarian Parliament building, seat of the National Assembly and the largest Parliament building in Europe. Admire the exterior limestone ornaments as your guide describes the Gothic Revival style.

When you’ve covered a lot of ground, join the excited gasps of your fellow travelers as your bus turns into a boat and you splash into the lapping water of the Danube River, admiring gorgeous riverside views before heading back to shore.

Throughout your tour, you'll see the following landmarks:

  • St Stephen’s Basilica – the largest church of Budapest
  • The Great Synagogue on Dohány Street, Europe’s largest synagogue
  • Hungarian State Opera House
  • Heroes’ Square, the most impressive square of Budapest where the Millennium Monument stands
  • Széchenyi Chain Bridge (Lánchíd) – the first permanent bridge over the Danube between Buda and Pest
  • The Royal Palace
  • Budapest Parliament
  • The Citadel, built as a military fortress on the highest point of the city center – Gellert Hill

The trip on the river bus was great, the best way to see the sites of Budapest from all perspectives

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Excellent tour, well organised, knowledgeable guides,etc. Only downside not much good for photographs as it is a proper coach so glass is to reflective for good shots, but a good way to see the main sites, and encourages to spend a bit more time on the ones that interest you.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013
