What you'll experience

The day starts from your hotel/accommodation in Budapest, where the experienced local English speaking guide (and driver) will pick you up. You'll leave Budapest in the direction of Esztergom, the former capital of the historic Hungarian kingdom. Esztergom is one of the oldest cities in Hungary and a very picturesque city. You will stop at the impressive basilica, the ideal place to take a picture. The guide will share interesting stories and legends that truly let you experience the history and culture.

After the visit to Esztergom we drive to Visegrád and follow the steps of the most influential king of Hungary, Matthias (Mátyás). In Visegrád you can see why this part of the Danube Bend was historically the favourite place of royalty and is still a great destination today. The panoramic view from the hills and the fortress of Visegrád is fantastic! Near the Donauknie it is time for a well-deserved lunch break in a nearby restaurant. At the end of the trip we will visit the charming town of Szentendre. The colourful houses in Szentendre truly deserve to be photographed. After Szentendre you will return to Budapest, where you will be dropped off at your hotel/accommodation.
