A tale of two cities

Budapest is two cities divided by the majestic River Danube – ancient Buda with its quaint cobbled streets and Pest with its grand boulevards and imposing baroque architecture. Budapest combines the enchanting atmosphere of Eastern Europe with its famous historical landmarks and the specialities of Hungarian cuisine, making it a wonderful destination for our short break.

Soaking up the sights

Linked by seven bridges, our guided sightseeing tour gives us our first taste of this special city. Top sights include the imposing Heroes’ Square with its impressive Millennium Monument and the Castle District where the Royal Palace Mattias Church and the famous Fisherman’s Bastion can be found. Afterwards, why not indulge at the celebrated Gundel Restaurant for a taste of their famous pancakes filled with walnuts and chocolate sauce? Or, take a walk along the 2.5km Andrássy Avenue and marvel at the beautiful buildings including the State Opera House.

Explore some more

Our hotel is situated in the heart of the Pest side of the city within walking distance of Andrássy Avenue and Oktagon Square. On a spare day, we may like to travel further afield and visit Szentendre, a small picturesque Baroque style village in the Danube Bend.

The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate to add on.
