Try special wines at one of the most beautiful parts of Hungary, Lake Balaton
Spend a day of your Hungarian vacation with the visit of Central Europe's largest fresh water lake, the Balaton! This full day tour is the best option for those who love great wines, amazing traditional Hungarian food and beautiful environment.
Leave behind the historical main attractions for a day and get closer to the nature and your inner peace. Drink special wines from one of the most important Hungarian wine region.
Around Lake Balaton there are six different wine regions, on this tour we visit three of them. Prepare your taste buds for the culinary experiences and your eyes for the unforgettable sights.
The tour is by well-equipped minivan with A/C and private driver, but in the case you are more than 4 people, I can arrange bigger vehicle fitting to the number of guests in the group. In this case please contact me so I can give you a quote for the booking of larger vehicle.
First the private driver and I will pick you up by car from your accomodation or wherever you please, and we'll hit the road to leave behind Budapest to the direction of Lake Balaton. During the drive I'll tell you interesting facts about the Hungarian sea. It takes roughly 2 hours to reach the area from Budapest and vice versa.
Our first stop is a nice family buisness, Tamás Cellar at Csopak, North-Balaton, beside the wines, we can also taste their wonderful levander products, e. g. cider, syrup and jam.
Then we'll head to Tihany for a brief visit to enjoy beautiful panorama of the lake and we'll see one of Hungary's oldest abbies on the top of this peninsula.
Afterwards our next destination is Hungary's "Provance", the Káli Basin, we can enjoy a nice Hungarian lunch here at Káli Art restaurant.
We'll continue our drive to the third wine region of the tour at Badacsony where we'll visit Laposa Estate for the last tasting before we'll head back to Budapest to take you where you please.

This day-long adventure was both fun and rewarding because of Petra's personal depth of understanding of the Balaton Lake region. Her personal insights, combined with her professionalism, made for a very pleasant experience. Her choices for winery visits couldn't be beat and her suggested location for lunch in the countryside was superb. She and her driver were very prompt, courteous and made us feel like we were new friends rather than clients. She is the best T-B-L guide we've had the pleasure to meet.
