minivan tour in Budapest mixed with wine tasting in the countryside
What can be nicer than combine sightseeing and wine tasting?
During this program we not just discovering the Hungarian capitol city but we also visit Etyek, a wine region near to Budapest which has been always connected to the history of Buda.
This 8 hours long tour is the best choice for those looking for orientation and to know their way around in Budapest while also being introduced to countryside around capitol city.
As we drive to the nicest vantage points of Budapest you will enjoy amazing views of the Danube and the city.
The advantage of using a 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 and we can easily drive to the nearby wine region for wine tasting and lunch!
Besides the history I am happy to discuss with you anything that interests you, the matters of daily life, politics, etc.
If you are traveling with a group bigger than 6 please contact me for a special quotation!
My general suggestion for a wine and the city tour is the following:
We start the day at Heroes Square and the surrounding City Park with the famous beaux art Szechenyi Spa and a fairy-tale like Castle of Vajdahunyad followed by a a drive along 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.
Before driving to the countryside for the wine tasting we see the House of Parliament and it's surrounding.
The drive to the nearest wine country takes about an hour. There we enjoy a charcuterie and cheese plate that we wash down with four, or five different wines.
After returning to the capital city we drive up to the Gellert Hill where you can enjoy one of the world's most recognized views, and last but not least we 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.
