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.)

Tour guide Elizabeth was brilliant ! Myself and my father took this trip yesterday. It started off on an extremely comfortable bus with a very nice, happy and informative guide Catherine. The guided tour she gave us in the bazilika in Esztergom was excellent. We enjoyed a lovely 3 course lunch

A Budapest trip without seeing Esztergom would be a loss. Thanks to our guide Laaszlo Fay. Great tour. The only shortfall was the AC which was not working at all in the bus. All the rest was very good.

This tour was really great and we really enjoyed it. Our tour guide was Elisabeth and she was really nice and informative. I would highly recommend this tour. The only thing that bothered us was the air conditioner in the bus as it was a bit hot. Thanks for the experience.
