Full description

This full-day tour of the mighty Danube is ideal for people who want to combine history with nature and would like to enjoy some of the most beautiful countrysides in Hungary. You will see historic monuments and art memorials while your guide provides a lively narrative of Hungarian life. You will visit the 750-year-old Royal Residence at Visegrád where you will learn about life in the Middle Ages while enjoying spectacular views of the Danube Valley. At Esztergom, the northern gate of Budapest, you will pause at the largest cathedral in the country and see the burial sites of famous cardinals as you gaze across the water towards Slovakia. Cross the river and border into Slovakia to see the stunning view from the opposite side.  You will stop at an artists' village in Szentendre, a baroque city located where the Danube River meets the Pilis Mountains. Wander the narrow streets to soak up the magical atmosphere and catch panoramic vistas of the river. You will have time to visit some of the museums, such as the world-famous Margit Kovács Ceramic Museum or the Confectionery Museum, where the buildings and people are made of marzipan. Browse the shops of the village if you prefer, before the return journey to Budapest. Travel during the months of May through September and this will be on a magical boat cruise, a fitting way to arrive back in the city center. In case of low water levels, the return to Budapest will be by bus.

All in all, we really enjoyed the day trip, there was a lot to see and a lot of interesting things were explained to us, Yolanda, our tour guide, was very personable. The lack of food for vegetarians and the somewhat outdated coach are to be noted.

Very nice tour, unfortunately it rained heavily from midday. But everything worked great, very competent tour guide, we were only 2 Germans on the bus, but we were very nice. Super and you can park well in the multi-storey car park very close to the descents.

The trip took place with a small group of 4 people. As a result, the care was very individual, Our guide has made a lot of explanations to the individual sights. The lunch in Visegrad was in a restaurant above the Danube with a great view.
