Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.

Departure Time

9:00 AM
Your tour begins with a morning pick-up from your hotel at a time of your choosing. Traveling in the comfort of a luxury 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; visit City Park to see the historic Széchenyi Bath, the largest thermal bath in Europe; and 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.

For lunch, head to the grand Central Market Hall, where you’ll have time to enjoy lunch (own expense), browse the stalls, and shop for souvenirs. Spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the Jewish Quarter, home to Europe’s largest Synagogue, and some of the city’s most impressive architecture.

After a full day 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.

Budapest 2019

Gabrielle gave us a spectacular 6-hour tour of Budapest. We had a car and walking tour which I highly recommend for any future traveler because Budapest is really spread out and it is very difficult to get around to see all the major sites by walking. We also believe 6 hours was the right amount of time. But be careful because if you go in the busy season there is a could be a lot of traffic which could impact how much of the city you can see.

Our tour guide was Kristina, she was very knowledgeable and passionate about Budapest. We got to see many things on the tour, it is a little tiring, but if you are limited for time, the tour is excellent. Kristina was very engaging and kept us interested throughout the tour. I would highly recommend her.

Adam our driver(beautiful and spotless van) and Christine provided our family a great day tour of Budapest! Christine's english was easy to understand and was full of historical information, making this tour the best! We only had 3 days in Budapest and taking this tour allowed us to see all the highlights of the city, in a short amount of time. A great day we will always remember, thanks!

Review of Private Sightseeing Tour
Marjorie F
, Apr 2019
If you have one day in the city and want to see as much as possible, this is a great way to go! Our guide, Ilona, was so knowledgable and so wonderful to get to know with her personal stories, and our driver was excellent as well. We bought Parliament tickets and arranged a stop there on our tour, after lunch. That worked very well. We learned lots of Budapest history in only one day!

Our guide, Dora Gabor was outstanding. He provided us with a very comprehensive and engaging tour of Budapest. We traveled very comfortably all around the city and were able to spend as much time as we liked in different areas and historical sites. At the completion, we felt we had received an excellent historical view and insight to this wonderful city. This tour was well worth the money.
