Overview
Take an unforgettable trip around Budapest, seeing the best sights from both land and water, on this comprehensive 1 hour 30 - 40 minute tour aboard an amphibious coach. Marvel at Budapest's top attractions from your comfortable seat as your guide informs you about the Hungarian capital, including the State Opera House, Royal Palace, the Citadel and more. When your floating bus splashes down into the Danube, you’ll capture the magic with more amazing views of the picturesque city from the river!
Highlights
  • Make the tour part of your city exploration, with departure and drop-off from a convenient central location
  • Gain different perspectives of the capital by land and by water and view its major landmarks, including the Royal Palace and Parliament
  • Learn more about the city’s historical context from your onboard guide
  • Enjoy the thrilling experience of driving into the Danube
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a central location in Budapest and hop on board your coach. Listen as your guide provides historical context for the many landmarks you pass during the landed portion of your trip, including the Parliament of Budapest and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Look out for landmarks, such as St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Great Synagogue, the Hungarian Opera House and Heroes’ Square. Next, your journey takes an aquatic dip, as your amphibious coach takes the Danube and continues the tour afloat. Hear the history of the iconic Chain Bridge as you pass under it, and admire the Buda Castle from your riverside vantage point. At the end of the tour, be dropped off at the original departure point, and continue your adventure in Budapest with new insight from this memorable tour.
