Private Day Trip to Budapest from Vienna

The Hungarian capital stands for Gipsy music, the typical Gulyas stew, and amazing architecture from the turn of the centuries. While Buda was the seat of the Hungarian kings for ages, Pest's heyday was the fin-de-siècle, when Hungary celebrated its first millenium. Join us for a daytrip and see for yourself!

With a friendly English-speaking Driver you depart from your hotel in Vienna in a private van. Heading east you cross the Hungarian border and drive through the Hungarian lowlands to Budapest.
