Full description
This 8-hour private tour departs from Budapest by air-conditioned minibus to explore 3 pearls of the Danube Bend. One of the most famous rivers in the world, the River Danube flows for 1,785 miles through the European continent, passing some of its most majestic cities. In Hungary, a curve in the river near the city of Visegrád has been given the name the Danube Bend. Flanked by the Transdanubian Mountains on one side and the North Hungarian Mountains on the other, it is a spectacular region rich in forests and limestone caves and home to an abundant viticulture On this tour you will explore 3 historic places of the Danube Bend with your personal guide. Drive to the handsome city of Esztergom, former capital of Hungary from the 10th to the 13th-Century and situated on the border with Slovakia. Its cathedral, the Esztergom Basilica, is the largest church in Hungary. Continue to Visegrád, a small castle town on the right bank of the Danube. Here you will explore the remains of the Royal Palace and visit the citadel of Visegrád Castle. Take some souvenir photos of the Danube Bend from the castle’s fantastic elevated vantage point. You will enjoy a 3-course lunch in a local restaurant at Visegrád before continuing to the medieval town of Szentendre. Well known for its art scene, you will stroll through the charming streets, lined with contemporary art galleries, craft shops and boutique stores. From May through the end of September, you can return to Budapest from Szentendre on a boat cruise along the Danube if required. The boat leaves Szentendre at 17:00. There is no boat on Monday.

Great day out

Very easy booking and service throughout. George picked us up from our hotel as planned and looked after us throughout. He was knowledgable and entertaining as we visited the 3 towns on the Danube bend. Lunch was great in a fabulous setting. Genuinely a lovely day and worth the money. Thanks George!!! Nicola

Great time out of the city!

My boyfriend and I had a great time exploring the sites on the Danube, and this was a great addition to our trip to Budapest. Our guide, Gabrielle, was great! He was very knowledgeable about many different aspects of Hungary, which was perfect because my boyfriend and I had different interests going into the tour. The tour was perfect as is, but Gabrielle's personality makes me wish there was a 6 star review! We will always remember the sites and the great conversations!

Gabrielle is the best tour guide - made for an excellent birthday

Three of my friends and I spent the day with Gabrielle on the Danube Bend tour. We had a great discussion on the way and back driving. He's extremely rich in information on the history of Hungary in general. We learned a tremendous amount. He was also extremely courteous, polite and very open. We thoroughly enjoyed his company and he made us feel totally at ease. I will recommend this tour, and Gabrielle especially. It was great to get out of Budapest and learn a little more about Hungary and its history.
