Cover the highlights of the city within 4 hours
This city sightseeing tour intends to show all of Budapest's tourist landmarks within half a day.
Budapest's most important sights are scattered around the city's 200 square mile area. Therefore, in order to cover the distances fast, we will use a private car/minivan to travel around the city.
Photo stops and short breaks of 15-20 minutes for easy walk-arounds and more detailed explanation are included in this tour at the highlights.
If you are in a hurry or simply want to get the most out of your visit within a short time - this is your tour!
The tour starts on the emblematic Heroes' Square - an open-air history book of Hungary.
On the edge of the City Park nearby, we drive past the Museum of Fine Arts, Vajdahunyad Castle and the world-famous historical spas.
From here we continue our journey onto the 1. 4 mile long Andrássy Avenue, with dozens of UNESCO World Heritage palaces designed in the late 1880s.
We check out the Roman Catholic St Stephen's Cathedral - the largest ecclesiastical building of the city.
Crossing the Danube River on the Chain Bridge, we arrive at the Castle Hill Quarter. This World Heritage site is home to the former Royal Palace and charming medieval houses, as well as the impressive Mathias Church and Fishermen's Bastion Viewing Terraces.
We will admire the immense-size Hungarian Parliament on the Danube Embankment.
Finally, we drive up to a 771-feet high hill - standing on the terraces of the Statue of Liberty, the entire city lies at your feet.

Amazing tour, even more amazing guide! Our river cruise suffered the fates of a low Danube like so many others. With that came lots of schedule changes. I emailed Nikolett to let her know we would not arrive in the morning (as we'd booked), but in the afternoon. I thought we'd have to cancel, but she worked her magic and we had our tour after all! We fell in LOVE with Budapest and are already planning a return trip. Nikolett has been a guide for 15+ years and makes Budapest come to life!
