The best place to start the excursion is the most prestigious and spectacular Chain Bridge, Budapest's oldest bridge and a true engineering marvel of its day. As you cross the river to Buda, you can see Margaret Bridge, the second-oldest bridge in Budapest, from your window.
The first stop, at the Castle District, offers an exploration of the main sights in the area. Wander through the neighborhood and you'll come across Matthias Church, the Fisherman's Bastion, Margaret Island, Pest, and stunning panoramic views of the Danube. The next stop is Gellért Hill. The citadel, which is positioned atop the hill, offers the most magnificent and immaculate views of Budapest.
Take the Elisabeth Bridge over the Danube to Pest, where you may visit City Park and the famous Central Market Hall—the largest synagogue in Europe. Go past Europe's largest thermal bath, the Budapest Zoo, and the Amusement Park before reaching Heroes' Square, where statues memorialize the greatest figures in Hungarian history. If you stroll down the posh, tree lined Andrássy Avenue, you might catch a glimpse of the Opera House and Saint Stephen's Basilica located in downtown Pest. Throughout the tour, you will hear an overview of the last millennium of Hungarian history from your affable and informed guide.
