On our Budapest Day Trip “The Paris of the East”, beautiful Budapest is waiting for you to explore her secrets – some of them 1000 years old, others date from the 20th century’s turbulent times. The capital of Hungary has a lot to offer for everybody: the history buffs, the foodies, the shopaholics. But this tour takes you a bit further than our half day tour.
Itinerary of Budapest Day Trip
We start our Budapest Day Trip heading to the Fisherman’s Bastion in the castle district on hilly Buda which will take your breath away together with the ancient coronation church, St. Matthias. Then we head to the ever- bustling Pest where we ride through the Andrassy Boulevard, home of designer shops and arrive at the historic Heroes Square to learn more about the origins of the Hungarians, and have a chance to take photos of our fairytale castle standing nearby-Vajdahunyad. Riding back to the city, the landmark of Budapest, the Parliament building, awaits us, and stories of the 1956 revolution unfold here.
Continuing our journey, the last stop is the Jewish district which happens to be the most popular gastro-party district as well. We finish our tour in front of the Great Synagogue, the second biggest one in the World.
This Budapest Day Trip includes short stops and a bit of walking in the city, giving a chance for breathtaking photos and a real feel of the 1000 years old but still young capital.
Budapest Day Trip: By Car or by Underground
You can do this Budapest City Tour with a driver and car, but we also offer it done entirely by public transport. Our guide will hop on and off the Budapest Underground with you during this tour which is part of the sightseeing experience – after all, the Budapest Underground is the oldest on the European continent!
We will visit the Memento Park, a park filled with old communist statues, where we have a lot of gigantic monuments-once standing on the streets of Budapest- on display. This is your perfect chance to take a photo with Lenin or Red Army soldiers and learn about the secret police training methods. Emerge yourself in the times of the Cold War and learn more about how Hungary, after having been invaded by Nazi Germany, became the vassal of the Sovjetunion, and a communist country from 1948 – 1989.
