    Pass By: Varhegy, Szent Gyorgy Ter Square Buda Castle, Budapest 1014 Hungary

    Begin your tour with a pick up from your Budapest hotel and travel to Heroes’ Square, one of the three largest squares in the city. Take in sights such as the Millennium Monument and the Museum of Fine Arts before continuing onward to the magnificent Vajdahunyad Castle near the City Park lake. Completed in the early 20th century, the castle is an intriguing mix of Gothic, Renaissance and Romanesque architectural styles.

    Leave the sites of City Park (Városliget) behind you and head to Andrássy Avenue, a UNESCO World Heritage site and popular spot for shopping in Budapest. Enjoy fine views of the Hungarian State Opera House and the grand townhouses that line the avenue. Learn of the area’s rich history from your knowledgeable guide.

    Marvel at the towering minarets of the Dohány Street Synagogue, one of the largest in the world, and St Stephen's Basilica, widely considered to be the most important church in Hungary. Continue onward to the home of the Hungarian Parliament, and hear how the nation’s fortunes play out within the walls of this spectacular building.

    Drive onward to Budapest’s Castle District and take in the many sites of interest here: Buda Castle, Matthias Church and Fisherman’s Bastion. Discover ancient, winding alleyways and capture the beautiful views on camera as you head onward to explore Gellért Hill and the Citadel.

    Upgrade your tour and enjoy a 1-hour cruise along the Danube River with a welcome drink. Hear more about Budapest’s fascinating past with your personal audio guide, and see this ancient city from a whole new angle.

    After four or five hours discovering the highlights of the Hungarian capital, your tour will come to an end in the Castle District or, if you have upgraded, at the city center pier.
