Full description
On this unforgettable tour along the Danube, make stops in Visegrád, Esztergom, and Szentendre. Explore the architecture and history of the places you visit alongside a guide. See the Danube Bend and walk along medieval narrow streets. In Visegrád, walk close to the 750-year-old stones of the former Royal Residence (entry fee not included). Learn about life in the Middle Ages, and enjoy the fascinating panorama of the Danube valley. At Esztergom, the northern gate of Budapest, stands the center of the Catholic Church. Visit the largest cathedral in Hungary and the burial place of the country's most famous cardinals such as Primate József Mindszenty. Afterward, stop to enjoy the view over Slovakia across the river. On the way back, stop by the artist's village of Szentendre.

Walk around the baroque settlement, built on medieval ruins, and go up the narrow streets to a panorama point to look out over the Danube.

Great day trip out of Budapest. Beautiful scenery and views of Danube. Tasty meal in medieval restaurant. Tour guide was way outside her comfort zone as had been called in to do a tour in a language she wasn’t comfortable with. Coupled with static on speakers, hearing and comprehension was difficult. Overall a good experience however.

Overall a good experience, the guide was very sweet and knowledgeable, we learnt a lot. Nonetheless I wished we had more free time, we spent a great part of the day in the bus. Also, we didn’t get to choose the restaurant which is to me a shame even though it was tasty and not too expensive, I’d prefer having the choice.

Places we went to were nice. Trip was organized. However, the guide would benefit from learning how to become more exciting. Youtube /Internet is full of good suggestions. Also more clarification is required on program of the day, and what each place would offer. We figured things on our own.
