grand city tour by car

Would you like to learn a lot about Budapest but only have one day? Then this is the perfect choice for you!

With a day tour I will show you the main attractions of my hometown, introducing you not only to it's history and culture, but also covering the traditions and everyday life of the Hungarians.

I would like to show you Budapest from a locals perspective in a unique way and also show you a lot of those sights what you wont see during a 4 hours long tour.

All tours can be tailor made according to your interests and needs!

Full day tour can be split into 2 half day tours as well.


After pick-up I'll take you up to the best view point of the city to Gellért hill, where we can have a great view of almost the entire city.

After that we drive along the Andrássy avenue where we can step in to the State Opera House then we go to Heroe's square.

In the City park we will see one of the oldest Zoo & Circus and we visit the largest thermal bath in Central Europe, the Széchenyi Bath.

Then we go to Downtown Pest we drive next to the Saint Stephen Cathedral, after that we'll drive by the Dohány street Synagogue, the largest one in Europe. If you want we can go inside.

Then we go to the Market Hall where you'll have opportunity to have something local for lunch & to buy some local products or souvenirs.

Then we see the Parliament and drive to Buda, the old part of the city to explore the Castle District, the former Royal Palace, the neo gothic Matthias Church and the Fisherman's Bastion.

If you have any special interest make sure you let me know and I can customize an itinerary for you!
