Budapest is full of UNESCO-listed monuments, architectural wonders, and lively markets, but visiting on a group tour means a fixed itinerary and less time to explore. Instead, maximise your time with a private full-day tour by luxury vehicle and tick off attractions such as Buda Castle, Széchenyi Thermal Bath, St Stephen’s Basilica, and the Central Market. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.
  • See the Chain Bridge, St Stephen’s Basilica, and State Opera House
  • Choice of departure times throughout the day
  • Great-value tour includes hotel pick-up and round-trip transport by private luxury vehicle
  • This private tour can be customized to your interests and ensures you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide
Your tour begins with a morning pick-up from your hotel at a time of your choosing. Traveling in the comfort of a luxury vehicle and accompanied by a private guide, set out to take in the highlights of Budapest.
Admire the views along the UNESCO-listed Danube riverfront; visit City Park to see the historic Széchenyi Bath, the largest thermal bath in Europe; and stop to take photos of landmarks such as the National Museum, the Parliament building, Western Railway Station, Vajdahunyad Castle, and Heroes Square.
Jump out to stroll down the elegant Andrassy Avenue, home to the lavish Hungarian State Opera House, then take a peek inside the opulent St. Stephen's Basilica. Continue across the Chain Bridge to Buda for 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, head to Gellért Hill for an unbeatable panoramic view of the city and the Danube River.
For lunch, head to the grand Central Market Hall, where you’ll have time to enjoy lunch (own expense), browse the stalls, and shop for souvenirs. Spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the Jewish Quarter, home to Europe’s largest Synagogue, and some of the city’s most impressive architecture.
After a full day taking in the city’s highlights, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
Please note: Your private tour is flexible and you can opt to visit the attractions of your choice along the way. Entrance fees are not included.

Our guide, Dora Gabor was outstanding. He provided us with a very comprehensive and engaging tour of Budapest. We traveled very comfortably all around the city and were able to spend as much time as we liked in different areas and historical sites. At the completion, we felt we had received an excellent historical view and insight to this wonderful city. This tour was well worth the money.

Our guide Joseph was absolutely wonderful! He was on time meeting us at our hotel and started right off telling us about the history of Budapest. His knowledge was extensive and our day with him was full of interesting information at each stop. He gave us as much time as we wanted at each place and we never felt rushed. We stopped for lunch at a wonderful underground restaurant where we enjoyed a traditional Hungarian lunch. I highly recommend this full day tour for a view of the city in one day.

It was a cold and windy day, but our guide was very viligent in getting us out of the weather but not missing a thing. We even ate at a Hunerian all you can eat buffet, so we had every kind of local dishes there were. As it was our day was 8 1/2 hours of wonderful stops. It was well worth the cost!
