  • Private air-conditioned transport, private guide, and pickup and drop-off anywhere in central Budapest included
Depart your Budapest hotel or another city-center location of your choice by private air-conditioned vehicle. Then, relax as you travel northward from Budapest to the Danube Bend, a region of picturesque hills where the River Danube loops and turns southward to Hungary’s capital.

Head first for the historical town of Esztergom, Hungary’s former capital and the seat of its Catholic church. Here, visit the imperious Esztergom Basilica, a massive green-domed edifice that’s Hungary’s biggest church and visible for miles around.

Go inside to admire the interior with its Renaissance motifs and paintings, and then continue to the castle town of Visegrád, on the Danube’s south bank.

Explore the restored chambers of Visegrád Royal Palace, a seat of royal power during the 1400s, and visit the walled 13th-century citadel, a hilltop fortress-palace that once held Hungary’s crown jewels. Savor the bird’s-eye views of the Danube Bend from the ramparts, and then refuel with a delicious 3-course lunch, drink, and coffee at a charming river-view restaurant.

Next, travel south to Szentendre, a historical town overlooking the Danube that's known as an artists’ community. Absorb the relaxed Mediterranean-style atmosphere on a stroll through the cobbled streets and admire the prettily painted baroque houses, churches, and museums.

Relax over coffee and cake (own expense) at one of the quaint cafes, and enjoy time to visit one of Szentendre's museums or shop for arty souvenirs in the enticing gift shops and galleries.

Having explored here, choose to either drive back to Budapest or, if you’re here between May and September, ride a river boat back to the capital, leaving Szentendre at 5pm.

Your tour finishes with a drop-off back at your hotel or any other chosen central location in the city.

This was a great way to get out of the city and see some of the gorgeous countryside. Our guide was very informative and made the day memorable.
