What You Can Expect

Danube Bend Day Trip from Budapest

Full Day Danube Bend Tour

Your full-day tour will begin with a stop in the town of Visegrad, known best for its medieval citadel that was originally built to protect the valley of the Danube. From the outside you’ll also have the chance to admire the ruins of the former royal residence, with construction dating back as far as 1323. Next you’ll make your way to Esztergom to admire the inside of the famous neoclassical cathedral, the largest church in Hungary.

Then you’ll take a brief pause from sightseeing and enjoy a filling 3-course lunch. Afterward you’ll head to Szentendre, where your guide will lead you on a walk through town and to the Caprice Hungarian Jewelry Center. There you can marvel at the pieces on display while learning about the manufacturing process.

The trip will conclude with a river cruise along the beautiful Danube Bend, bringing you back to Budapest. (Cruises run May 1 to September 30 only, tide permitting. During alternate months or low tide, you will be returned to the city by bus.)

This was a tremendous tour. It was a wet day but no matter the knowledgable tour guide was interesting and informative. A nice lunch stop lunch provided made the tour great value. Sitting back to watch the countryside roll by made for a relaxing and enjoyable day. All in all I would recommend this tour to others looking to see a bit of Hungary outside of the city.
