This was a fantastic tour, with both a Viator guide on the bus as well as a local guide for the walking tour. After an orientation of the city by bus, we had a walking tour of the Buda hill with a lovely local guide who was very informative and personable. After the tours, we had a couple hours to explore on our own - not enough to see everything that Budapest offers, you need way more than a day for that, but time enough to see a few of your most pressing sites. A great introduction to a must-see city!

The Budapest day trip was fantastic! The tour guides were friendly and told us interesting facts and history on the way to Budapest and whilst there. There was an accident on the road that day which delayed us by an hour which in the end didn't effect the trip. We still had personal time to explore the place before going back to Vienna. The tour guide also took us to a nice restaurant where the food was delicious and you can either pay in euros or forints but be aware if you pay in euros you will get change in forints. Overall, it was a great day, I learnt a lot and already want to go back to spend more time in that beautiful city.

This day trip to Budapest made it a rather long day. However, the trip was worthwhile - especially if you have limited time available in Europe. The Budapest guide showed us the highlights of the city, and allowed us time to explore on our own e.g. there was enough time to take a late afternoon cruise on the Danube. I would really like to return and spend a few more days there exploring the sights. The recommended lunch stop was a good choice - traditional Hungarian food, good service, and reasonable prices and you can pay in Euros.
