Gergely Szabo tourguide Budapest Hungary Danube bend Puszta Sightseeing
Half-day Budapest city-tour
You can see Budapest's most important sights on an around 3-4 hours long tour. However, we need a vehicle according to the number of the group (eg. car, microbus or autobus). There are short stops like Heroes Square, Buda Castle and the Citadella. I recommend this program to those who have only a short time, or they want to explore the city alone and they need just an orientation. During such a city tour you can decide what you want to see more thoroughly, where you want to go back or you can simply measure the distances.
The Hungarian Plane program
This excursion starts with a walk at the main square in Kecskemét. After listening to the chimes at the City Hall we walk to the scene of the horse-show, which takes about half-an -hour to get to. There you can see a horse-show, go for a ride on a horse carriage, during that we visit a small private farm, which is still in use. Of course, the lunch with Goulash soup and gypsy-band can not be missed.

Trip to the Danube Bend
This is the most popular trip from Budapest.It starts in Esztergom with the visitation of the Basilica. In case of a smaller group (with car or minibus) it is better to approach the town using the Pomáz-Dobogókő route because it is especially nice, and the way back leads us along the bank of the Danube, anyway. If the weather is nice, it is worth to take a small detour to Dobogókő. In Esztergom you can visit the crypt, the treasury or even the panorama view from the dome cupola. We spend the hours around noon in Visegrad where the view is the most beautiful onto the Danube Bend, from the citadel. In the afternoon we visit the downtown of Szentendre where there are countless sights, exhibitions, cafes and shops waiting for the tourists.
Close to Budapest, around 25 kilometers away, you can find one of the most beautiful castles of Hungary. In the Gödöllő Castle museum you can visit the contemporary furnitured rooms, the restored places and the chapel. Even the recently renovated Baroque Theater can be seen. The visit of the castle can be combined with the Lazar's Horsepark in Domonyvölgy where you can see a top-class horse-show similar to the one in the plane program - although this is not on the plane but among picturesque hills.
