Budapest Top Attractions Tour
Cover the best sights of the city within 4 hours! This standard sightseeing tour intends to show all of Budapest’s tourist landmarks within a relatively short timeline. Budapest’s most important sights are scattered around the city’s 200 square mile area. Therefore, in order to cover the distances fast, we will use a private car/minivan to travel around the city. Photo stops and short breaks of 15-20 minutes for walk-arounds and further explanations will be provided during this tour at the highlights. If you are in a hurry or simply want to get the most out of your visit within a short time – this is your tour!
180 euros/tour. Maximum number of persons: 6.

We check out the Roman Catholic St Stephen’s Cathedral as well as the Grand Synagogue – the largest ecclesiastical buildings of the city.
