A land locked country in Central Europe, Hungary is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania and Ukraine to the east, Croatia and Serbia to the south, Austria to the west and Slovenia to the southwest. The capital city, Budapest is a fabulous city break option and it’s the largest city in Hungary. I visited Budapest in July 2013 and really enjoyed a few days wandering the city! It’s easy to get everywhere on foot and with amazing cafes, bars and shops along the Danube and lots of historic sights to tour, you could spend a week here! The Buda Caste and Fishermans Bastion has amazing views over the river to the ‘Pest’ side of the city. The streets are clean and safe and you can get travel cards to take the trams further afield. There are also some fun festive markets here, beautifully lit up at night.
Cruises on the River Danube are a great way to see this lovely country. There is some amazing architecture in Hungary incluing the Great Synagogue – the largest in Europe, one of the largest Basilicas in Europe and the largest medicinal bath in Europe, the Szechenyi.
There is plenty to do in Hungary including walking, cycling, horse riding and bird watching there are also thermal spas to relax in! Visit Lake Balaton and lovely little towns and villages off the beaten track including the medieval town of Sopron which is close to the border with Austria. There are also villages to explore in the many wine regions of Hungary. There is a rich and varied culture here with several classical composers including Franz Liszt hailing from Hungary. One of the most unusual inventions to originate in Hungary was the Rubik’s cube!
Escorted tours, river cruises and cycling holidays are all different ways to see Budapest and Hungary, get in touch for a tailor made quote.
Thank you for booking our Christmas Market River Cruise holiday to Germany, we had a really lovely time. The staff on the boat (MPS Rotterdam) and our cabin (Promenade deck) was lovely and the food was out of this world! The best markets were in Bonn and Rudesheim.

Everything on our trip worked out absolutely perfectly which is essential when you have a group of 11 cyclists covering long distances each day. Julie was very good at communication with all of the details so that we could ensure all of the group were properly briefed. If we were to do another group trip we would certainly use Julie.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
