simply the best of Budapest by car


This tour will show you around the whole city and covers simply the best sights of the Hungarian capital.

A half day long tour is the best choice for orientation and to know your way around. The tour is also panoramic, so you will enjoy an amazing view of the Danube and the city.

The advantage of using a luxury minivan is that we can enter to lots of neighborhoods where tour buses are not allowed to enter thus we can see a lot more!

Besides the history I am happy to discuss with you anything that interests you, the matters of daily life, politics, etc.

If you like we can also enjoy a short coffee break in a café house along Andrassy Avenue.

After the tour I can upgrade a map for you with tons of recommendations regarding events, places, etc. for the rest of your stay so that you can spend your time in Budapest like locals, avoiding tourist traps.

If you are traveling with a group bigger than 6 please contact me for a special quotation!

Itinerary

My general suggestion for a half day long tour is the following:

-First we drive up to the Gellert Hill where you can enjoy one of the world's most recognised views, which also provides a great general overview of what my hometown can offer to visitors
-Gellert bathhouse which was the city's first luxurious bathhouse.
-Explore the so called residential part of the Buda Castle district with the Neo-Gothic Matthias Church and the Fisherman's Bastion, which are both known as the highlights of Budapest.
-Chain bridge and a drive along the Andrassy Avenue, which is part of the Unesco World heritage, with an optional stop at the State Opera House and at the House of Terror.
-Heroes Square and the surrounding City Park with the famous beaux art Szechenyi Spa and a fairy-tale like Castle of Vajdahunyad.
-a drive along the off the beaten track upper class villas built during the late 1800s.
-we drive biggest synagogue of Europe, which is undisputedly shows you the significance of the communities in the city's life.
