Overview

Budapest is full of UNESCO-listed monuments, architectural wonders, and lively markets, but visiting on a group tour means a fixed itinerary and less time to explore. Instead, maximize your time with a private tour by luxury vehicle and tick off attractions such as Buda Castle, Széchenyi Thermal Bath, St Stephen’s Basilica, and the Central Market. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.
  • See the Chain Bridge, St Stephen’s Basilica, and State Opera House
  • Explore the Buda Castle complex, Heroes Square and the Central Market Hall
  • Great-value tour includes hotel pick-up and round-trip transport by private luxury vehicle
  • This private tour can be customized to your interests and ensures you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide

Traveler pickup is offered
Your tour guide will pick you up from the hotel lobby. If you are staying at a private apartment in Budapest, please send us the address.

Your morning or afternoon tour begins with pick-up from your hotel at a time of your choosing. Traveling in the comfort of a luxury Mercedes Benz vehicle and accompanied by a private guide, set out to take in the highlights of Budapest.

Admire the views along the UNESCO-listed Danube riverfront, browse the stalls at the Central Market Hall, and explore the Jewish Quarter, home to Europe’s largest Synagogue, then continue to City Park to see the historic Széchenyi Bath, the largest thermal bath in Europe. Along the way, stop to take photos of landmarks such as the National Museum, the Parliament building, Western Railway Station, Vajdahunyad Castle, and Heroes Square.

Jump out to stroll down the elegant Andrassy Avenue, home to the lavish Hungarian State Opera House, then take a peek inside the opulent St. Stephen's Basilica. Continue across the Chain Bridge to Buda for a tour of the medieval castle and follow your guide around Trinity Square, Fisherman’s Bastion, and Matyas church. After snapping photos of the grand Buda Castle, which dates from the 13th century, head to Gellért Hill for an unbeatable panoramic view of the city and the Danube River.

After four hours taking in the city’s highlights, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Please note: Your private tour is flexible and you can opt to visit the attractions of your choice along the way. Entrance fees are not included.

Beautiful Budapest

, Oct 2021
Chrissie arrived exactly on time as did Daniel, our driver. She was an amazing guide and not only told us but showed us, as well, the history of Budapest. Traveling in a vehicle was very comfortable and involved less walking. The tour was customized to what we wanted to do and see. We even stopped to sample langos, an awesome Hungarian treat! My friends and have decided this is how we will tour in the future. We arrived in Budapest on a Viking cruise and we njoyed this more than most of their food excursions. Thank you so much.

We were picked up in a shiny, luxury Mercedes Benz. Before the tour, we were able to correspond with Sweet Travel to customize our tour. Then along the way, the very knowledgeable guide was able to add several unplanned photo-op stops. We saw more in the first hour than we saw on a 4 hour bus tour the day before! In a car, you can get to, and park in many locations inaccessible by a tour bus. This is the second time we've been happy with Viator, and will use them again next year.

Our guide Erna and driver( sorry I can not recall how to spell his name) we’re both fantastic. Driving during St Stephens Day festival was a challenge, he did a great job. We saw so many things and have so many wonderful memories. Erna was so knowledgeable and by the end of our tour we felt like they were family. Thanks for an awesome day! The Odells, Texas USA
