My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour which was led by an experienced and entertaining guide who was one of the best we've encountered. Our day included passing through attractive and varied country, visits to historically interesting sights, a nice lunch at a good restaurant, a shopping stop, and a return to Budapest via the Danube.
Good overview of some of the towns outside of Budapest. Good photo stops and great lunch stop. Boat trip down the Danube was a nice addition. Overall, a nice day out of the city.
Really enjoyed this tour. The description doesn't do it justice. The countryside views and informative guides made this a wonderful view of Hungary outside of Budapest.
Great tour, well organized, just the right balance of sailing, walking and cruise on the lovely Danube river. Must do for everyone visiting Budapest.
This was a great trip with a mixture of churches, small towns, lunch, Danube cruise. At the church we visited there happened to be the wedding of a countess' daughter - never been to a royal wedding before!
Fantastic day with a three course lunch at a lovely restaurant . We travelled through Visegard and Estergom .
From Estergom we crossed the border between Hungary and Slovakia on foot. The return trip on a boat on the river Danube was an added bonus. The guide was very knowledgeable and she also gave us free times to walk around.
This day trip was a great way to see some of the area to the north of Budapest. As we road the bus through Obuda, we got a view of a number of the Roman ruins. Our guided stroll along the cobble streets in Szentendre helped me locate a shop that I had my heart set on visiting where the famous blue hand dyed material is sold. The restaurant where we were taken for lunch provided outstanding food and views. You have to check out the mounted wild boars heads in the restaurant! The cathedral at Esztergom was quite quite beautiful. The boat ride back into Budapest from Szentendre was a lovely end to the day. Our guide, Ingrid, was very helpful and friendly.
Fabulous guide, lots of history, beautiful countryside...what more can I say.
This was one of the best day trips I have ever taken. Our guide Helena was awesome. We did so much in one day. Going to the basilica on Palm Sunday was the highlight of the trip. The included lunch, which was tasty, made this trip a great deal.
This trip was above expectations. aTaxi was sent to our hotel for pick up and taking us to the tours company. Mini air conditioned bus was waiting for us. The number of people of this trip is limited which is very good. The leader was very nice and interacted with everyone properly. The route of the trip was so lovely between the villages and the mountains. But there is an experience which I cant forgot, It is the beautiful restaurant at the top of the mountain overlooking the Danube river, it was a place that I cant forgot with its amazing atmosphere. The shopping experience in Szentendre was awesome as well. After that we returned by a public boat in an organized manner.
Great tour with a seasoned guide. Great bus ride, meet some new friends, enjoyed the beautiful views. Visited Esztergom, Visegrad, and Szentendre. Great meal, shopping and leisurely ride on the boat back.
Completely unexpected daytrip all the way to the Slovakian border. really enjoyed the Views of the Danube and our guide was really good at explaining stuff
great except the unfortunate delay of a traffic accident that closed the road for nearly 2 hours
This was a wonderful day trip! Everything, from the very pleasant knowledgeable Guide, to the sights, to the luncheon was excellent! We especially enjoyed the boat ride back to Budapest. The bus was clean and comfortable and the driver was proficient, too. WELL DONE!

It was a good day trip and our guide was very knowledgeable. Not surprising as she has been a guide for 20 years. The meal was good and the restaurant setting was serene with excellent views. Would definitely recommend if you have time in Budapest.
Thoroughly enjoyed this day, our tour guide was excellent and all nationalities were catered for. Places visited very much worth seeing and the venue and quality of food for lunch was very good.
We took the Danube Bend Tour on probably the hottest day in August and it was great to have an air conditioned bus. The tour itinerary was excellent and the guide very knowledgeable. The return by the river added to the trip, I would recommend this tour to friends. Booking with Viator was easy online and all arrangements, including pickup went as planned. This is an excellent one day escape from the beautiful city of Budapest.
A well designed trip that was excellent value for money, with an excellent guide. Highly recommended
This was an amazing trip! We loved everything about it -- the cathedral and castle in Esztergom, lunch overlooking the Danube in Visegrad, the time to explore and shop in Szentendre, and the boat back to Budapest. Laszlo was a great guide, explaining everything in a way that was both historically accurate and easy for a non-expert to follow. Highly recommended!
This was a good trip for seeing some of the countryside of Hungary. We had a very knowledgable guide. There were only 3 participants on the tour, so it was almost like a private group. This allowed us to take more time with things of interest to us. The boat ride back on the ferry was comfortable and scenic. The lunch was OK, but it was a beautiful location.
