8 hours long tour to the Danube Bend by private minivan


Esztergom, Visegrád, Szentendre - some of the most beautiful parts of Hungary.

Danube Bend is one of the most beautiful part of Hungary and it is really close to Budapest: in 8 hours I can show you all the main sights of this area. We will go up to the Citadel (Fellegvár) of Visegrád, visit Esztergom and wander around the nice walking streets of Szentendre as well.

Of course visiting the 3 cities is just a suggestions. If you have special interest eg. hiking, or narrow-gauge railway let me know! The tour can be customised to the very detail!

---
Kindly note that the Basilica of Esztergom is under reconstruction thus the visit of the largest place of worship in Hungary is limited. I am happy to offer alternative sites to visit instead of Esztergom.

Itinerary

After we leave Budapest to the North we drive through the woods of the Pilis Mountains before we make a quick stop to admire the view from Dobogo-ko overlooking the Danube Bend.

Shortly after the photo-stop we arrive to Esztergom, Hungary's first capital. The skyline is ruled by the biggest and most impressive Cathedral of Hungary, it is seat of the Hungarian cardinal. We can visit the crypt with the tomb of Cardinal Mindszenty, and we can admire the view from the Dome overlooking the city and the surrounding mountains.

Our third stop is Visegrad, a city that served as a royal seat for several hundred years. We admire the view from the hilltop and we can also sit back and relax while we enjoy out lunch.

Last but not least we visit Szentendre, a small artist village of many churches and unique atmosphere. This romantic little settlement has a lot to offer, like pastries, galleries, museums and colourful little houses dating back to the 18th century which are all making our last stop truly memorable.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a relaxing and enjoyable day on the Danube Bend tour with Adam as our guide. Adam is an excellent guide - able to field virtually any question that I had, from history to politics to culture. He's energetic and clearly has a passion for Hungary and for guiding tours. I wish I could give him 6 stars! -Sandy Fort Worth, TX
