Meet your driver at your Vienna hotel and settle into your private vehicle for the 2-hour journey to Budapest. On arrival, greet your local guide and set off on a comprehensive 3-hour city tour of Budapest, starting with the view from Geller Hill. Enjoy an unbeatable panorama of the city and the Danube River as your guide fills you in on the city’s two halves – Buda, the ancient seat of the Hungarian Kings and Pest, the heart of the modern city.

Start your explorations in Buda with a tour of the medieval castle and follow your guide around Trinity Square, Fisherman’s Bastion and Matyas church. After snapping photos of the grand Buda Castle, which dates from the 13th century, cross the iconic Chain Bridge into Pest, stopping to admire the magnificent Hungarian Parliament Building on the waterfront.

Browse the shops along lively Vaci Street, then take a peek inside the opulent St. Stephen's Basilica, where the star attraction is, somewhat bizarrely, the right hand of its namesake King Stephen. Next, stroll down the elegant Andrassy Avenue, home to the lavish Hungarian State Opera House, and marvel over the monuments of Heroes Square.

For lunch (own expense), follow your guide’s recommendations and tuck into some traditional Hungarian cuisine at a local restaurant – Gulyas stew is a good choice. In the afternoon, enjoy around three hours of free time to wander around the city independently, hit the shops or take a soak at the famous Gellert Bath (admission not included).

Around 4.30pm, meet up with your guide for the return trip to Vienna and finish your tour with drop-off at your hotel.

Ben was a great driver and semi tour guide. Always helpful and informative. He made our trip very pleasant dropping us off at great locations and meeting us at a perfect location for pick up, allowing us to see several sites at once. Anna the guide in Budapest was a very well informed and pleasant young lady. It was very interesting to hear the perspectives of a educated Hungarian who takes a lot of pride in her Country and heritage. Drive is bit long but well worth it. Thanks Mark
