The beautiful and culturally rich 'Danube Bend' area is the most popular destination for a day trip to the Hungarian countryside from Budapest. The region was named after the phenomenon that when the mighty Danube river reaches the Pilis mountain range it turns 90 degrees to the south.

The 8-9 hours long private tour includes this unique natural formation and the three most beautiful, historical towns of the area. These are the charming baroque town, Szentendre with its cobbled streets, shops and cafés, the medieval royal high castle of Visegrad with the most amazing view of the Danube Bend, and Esztergom, the former capital of the country with the enormous Basilica on the riverside overlooking the neighbouring country, Slovakia.

Itinerary

I'll pick you up in Budapest at your hotel and we'll drive to the town of Szentendre. We will take a light walk on the Danube bank and on the shopping streets where you can see and purchase some local crafts. Then I'll invite you to see a truly unique gallery of microscopic sculptures.

We'll drive to Visegrad to have lunch in a restaurant from where you have a superb view of the former royal high castle and the majestic Danube Bend. Then we visit the 13th century high castle (mostly ruined during the Ottoman sieges) and see the stunning view of the river and the surrounding mountains.

Our third stop will be in Esztergom, the former capital of Hungary. We'll visit the number one largest church of the country, the mighty 19th century Esztergom Basilica. From here you'll see our neighbouring country, Slovakia. If you'd like to add yet another country to your 'I've visited it' list, bring your passport and request the short hop across the Danube!

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Where would you like to be picked up?

End location: Where would you like me to drop you off at the end of the tour?

Duration: 9 hours

The tour can be completed in about 8 hours but traffic can add a little more time to it. You can calculate with 8-9 hours from door to door of your hotel.

Transportation

Private car: a BMW 5 series with leather seats and A/C. Should you have more than 3 people in your group feel free to contact me and I'll arrange a minivan or bus and provide you with the fees.

What’s Included

- Private guiding
- Transportation by private car with A/C
- Hotel pickup and dropoff
- Entry fees to the Visegrad Royal High Castle
- Wi-Fi internet

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20000 HUF - It's convenient to have some cash for the shops in Szentendre and for grabbing some food. The restaurants take bank cards but using local cash is always a safe bet.

What’s Extra

Food and drinks are not included in the fee. I'll book a table in a great restaurant for lunch but what you order is on you.
