Budapest Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Royal Castle, Budapest

This 3-hour Budapest sightseeing tour begins at your hotel, where your guide will pick you up. You’ll then travel by coach across the Danube on Margaret Bridge, which connects visitors and locals alike to the scenic Margaret Island, a popular recreational area set in the middle of the river. From there you’ll drive to the Buda Castle District, visiting Fisherman’s Bastion, lookout towers that provide some of the best panoramic views in Budapest. You’ll continue on to the interior of Matthias Church, where the double sarcophagus of King Bela III and his wife is located.

You will also climb the Gellert Hill for additional photo opportunities of the city, before crossing back over to Pest on the Elisabeth Bridge. You’ll pass Budapest’s famous City Park and Heroes' Square, where iconic statues of the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars sit.

To conclude your half-day tour, your guide will take you past the Hungarian Opera House and the towering structure of St. Stephen's Basilica. You will be dropped off at the Hotel Intercontinental.
