    What to Expect
    Depart your Budapest hotel or another city-center location of your choice by private air-conditioned vehicle. Then, relax as you travel northward from Budapest to the Danube Bend, a region of picturesque hills where the River Danube loops and turns southward to Hungary’s capital.

    Head first for the historical town of Esztergom, Hungary’s former capital and the seat of its Catholic church. Here, visit the imperious Esztergom Basilica, a massive green-domed edifice that’s Hungary’s biggest church and visible for miles around.

    Go inside to admire the interior with its Renaissance motifs and paintings, and then continue to the castle town of Visegrád, on the Danube’s south bank.

    Explore the restored chambers of Visegrád Royal Palace, a seat of royal power during the 1400s, and visit the walled 13th-century citadel, a hilltop fortress-palace that once held Hungary’s crown jewels. Savor the bird’s-eye views of the Danube Bend from the ramparts, and then refuel with a delicious 3-course lunch, drink, and coffee at a charming river-view restaurant.

    Next, travel south to Szentendre, a historical town overlooking the Danube that's known as an artists’ community. Absorb the relaxed Mediterranean-style atmosphere on a stroll through the cobbled streets and admire the prettily painted baroque houses, churches, and museums.

    Relax over coffee and cake (own expense) at one of the quaint cafes, and enjoy time to visit one of Szentendre's museums or shop for arty souvenirs in the enticing gift shops and galleries.

    Having explored here, choose to either drive back to Budapest or, if you’re here between May and September, ride a river boat back to the capital, leaving Szentendre in early evening.

    Your tour finishes with a drop-off back at your hotel or any other chosen central location in the city.

    We were having a lot of fun with Michael to be our private tour guide to go to the Danube Bend. He was knowledgeable (was able to answer any questions asking by my husband), friendly with a lot of patients. He was also a talented mobile photographer and made this whole trip
