Know More about this tour

Meet your driver at your accommodation in Belgrade and settle into your private vehicle for the 3,5-hour journey to Budapest.( 365 km, only highway) On arrival, greet your local guide and set off on a comprehensive 3-hour city tour of Budapest, starting with the view from Gellert Hill. Enjoy an unbeatable panorama of the city and the Danube River as your guide fills you in on the city's two halves : Buda, the ancient seat of the Hungarian Kings and Pest, the heart of the modern city. Start your explorations in Buda with a tour of the medieval castle and follow your guide around Trinity Square, Fisherman's Bastion and Matyas church. After snapping photos of the grand Buda Castle, which dates from the 13th century, cross the iconic Chain Bridge into Pest, stopping to admire the magnificent Hungarian Parliament Building on the waterfront. Browse the shops along lively Vaci Street, then take a peek inside the opulent St. Stephen's Basilica, where the star attraction is, somewhat bizarrely, the right hand of its namesake King Stephen. Next, stroll down the elegant Andrassy Avenue, home to the lavish Hungarian State Opera House, and marvel over the monuments of Heroes Square. For lunch (own expense), follow your guide's recommendations and tuck into some traditional Hungarian cuisine at a local restaurant. Gulyas stew is a good choice. In the afternoon, enjoy around three hours of free time to wander around the city independently, hit the shops or take a soak at the famous Gellert Bath (admission not included). Around 5.00pm, meet up with your guide for the return trip to Belgrade and finish your tour with drop-off at your hotel.

    We were warmly picked up by our guide Alex from our hotel and headed straight to Budapest. On the way Alex give us a detailed schedule and along the way he explained to us the history of the country. Once in Budapest, Alex took us to all the historical sites and took his time in explaining to us in details everything we needed to know. After that we headed to have lunch and then we were given free time to visit the thermal baths which is an amazing experience. At 5.30 we were picked by Alex and headed to Belgrade.
    All in all the trip was a great success thanks to Alex as he was very patient with us as we used to stop every 5 seconds to take pics, he also and tailored the tour in a way that kept us very happy and comfortable. Alex was very informative, you can tell he knows what he is talking about and that he has a passion for what he is doing. I would highly recommend this day trip, ask for Alex for an amazing day in Budapest.

    As four US citizens two couples staying in Belgrade, we were intrigued by the idea of taking a day trip to Budapest in neighboring Hungary. Yes, it is a long day, requiring more than a three hour drive each way but we decided it was totally worth it. From beginning to end, this tour far exceeded our expectations which were already pretty high. Our tour guide, Alexander, picked us up promptly at 7:30 am from our lodging and we immediately felt comfortable with him. His English was impeccable and he did an impressive job of explaining the history and culture of our destination in a way that was interesting and easy to follow as we traveled through northern Serbia and across the border into Hungary. We appreciated the personalized nature of this private tour and our guides flexibility and suggestions about how to make the best use of our time in Budapest. We were fortunate to be touring the city in the off season as it was not crowded and we were treated to breathtaking views and scenery from several overlooks. The view of the city and Danube River from Fishermans Bastion was especially memorable. We had plenty of time to get a great overview of the city and wander along a pedestrian area visiting the small shops and seeing the Christmas decorations. We bought paprika and some of the locally made marzipan liquor to take home. We were glad we had our winter hats and gloves with us since it was a bit windy, especially at the overlooks. Our guide recommended a local restaurant and we enjoyed our lunch of traditional Hungarian cuisine. Once we finished our meal, it was getting dark and time to leave. After the great meal and the touring, we relaxed and even slept a bit on the ride home. This is by far one of the best escorted tours we have taken and we all agreed it was a great value as well. We look forward to taking more Viatours in the future.

    Do it! But be prepared to spend up to nine hours driving for four hours of exploration in Budapest. Our guide Alexander was awesome! He was patient, knowledgeable and helped us find some of the things we wanted to see on our own in the city. We went to a ruin bar, which was very cool and asked our guide to take us to the shoes on the Danube memorial. He gladly made this happen even though it wasn't on the itinerary. We unexpectedly had to wait for three hours at the border leaving Hungary, so that made for a LONG trip back to Belgrade, but obviously that was beyond everyone's control. If you have a free day and want to check out Budapest I would highly recommend this tour!

    If you only have one day to take advantage of visiting this fantastic city, do it! It's a long day, but well worth it. Alexander was our guide and made sure we saw all the key points while remaining flexible along the journey. We really enjoyed this tour.
