What you can expect
Embark on a tour away from the bustling city of Budapest. Enjoy the scenery as you ride through quaint countryside on your way to interesting destinations such as the world’s largest porcelain manufactory, the oldest spa resort in Hungary, and a 1000-year-old monastery.
Begin your tour near the Parliament, the world’s third largest Parliament building. Travel to Herend Porcelain Manufactory—the world’s largest factory of this type. Founded in 1826, this company is rich with fascinating history. Listen to your expert guide as you walk through the elaborate rooms to look at gilded and hand-painted pieces.
Next, travel to Lake Balaton—the largest freshwater lake in Central Europe. Visit Tihany, a historic town on a peninsula jutting out into the lake. Enjoy the town at your leisure as your guide gives you free time to seek out whatever sites you’re most interested in. Take the opportunity to visit the local museums and shops, grab a bite to eat, or go to the ancient Benedictine abbey.
Your last stop is in Balatonfüred, where you can see the oldest spa resort in Hungary. Walk along the famous promenade and take in the spectacular views before returning to Budapest.
