Day Trip from Budapest: Puszta Horse Show and Countryside

1. Day Trip from Budapest: Puszta Horse Show and Countryside

Budapest is a great city, but it can be quite overwhelming to the traveler. Its size and loud buses can drive even the most experienced urban traveler to the woods. So why not get out of the city and into the beautiful and colorful landscape of Hungary's plains (the puszta)? Here you'll be able to lounge on the Danube and Tisza rivers, and gain a deeper understanding of the Hungarian countryside. On your day trip, you'll enjoy a visit to a traditional farm, where you can see a horse show and dine on a fine Hungarian feast. Lunch includes: • Goulash soup • Grilled chicken made in a traditional "Puszta" style with mixed garnish (potato, rice, vegetable) • Dessert: milk pie • 1 glass of white wine and mineral water Then take a short walk in the famous town of Kecskemét. Here you'll have the chance to cool off with some drinks while taking in the sights. Your meals will be accompanied by live Gypsy music! The tour ends downtown. Your guide will be happy to point you towards another good restaurant or things to do afterwards, so make sure to ask!

Discover Hungarian rural life and meet local cowboys and animals in Hungary's puszta (Great Plain) on a guided tour from Budapest. Marvel at a horse show, take a carriage ride, tour the ranch, and learn about the horses. Sample a traditional Hungarian goulash stew and palinka fruit brandy. After pickup from Budapest, head to a ranch in the Hungarian countryside, 60 km away. On arrival, attend a unique horse show and marvel at the cowboys' special skills. Take pictures with the cowboys before having a guided tour of the farm and stables. Meet animals that can only be found in Hungary. Get closer to the horses on a 15-minute carriage ride around the farm to see how it all works. Next, tuck into some local food. Indulge in a farmers' meal of goulash and strudel paired with a shot of local fruit brandy to brighten your day. Head back to Budapest with a full belly and a light heart.

This was a fabulous day trip. I took my 3 children. Our coach driver Lazlo and tour guide Hilda were fantastic. Hilda's knowledge of Hungarian history and local life is awesome. The trip is very well organised.
