We drive from Budapest to Esztergom, the cradle of Hungarian statehood, to visit the largest Basilica of the country. The view of the Danube Bend and the Maria Valeria Bridge that leads to Slovakia is very nice. From Esztergom we go to Visegrad to visit the Castle that also had a very important role in Hungarian history. The exhibition of the Castle gives you an insight into the knighthood of different centuries, the history of the country and the life of people in the 14th-15th century. While going up to the castle we can enjoy a fascinating view of the Danube.
We stop at a pleasant restaurant for lunch before continuing our trip to the scenic Baroque town of Szentendre. We stroll along narrow streets, among small, colourful houses, passing by art galleries and lovely churches. We walk up to the little hill of the village from where we can enjoy nice panorama, rooftops, surrounding hills and the Danube.
We visit the Marzipan museum where you can see fairy tale scenes, flowers, famous historic figures, the model of the Parliament – all made of marzipan.
You will have the opportunity to do shopping or visit the Kovacs Margit Ceramic Museum if you are interested.
We drive back to Budapest.

My name is Magdi Pelech. I am a licenced Budapest tour guide. Would you like to have a unique private tour experience? Do you feel like having a Budapest sightseeing tour with an entusiastic guide?
“A friend and I visited Budapest in May of 2015 when we were there for a conference. We took a couple of extra days at the beginning to see Budapest, so looked for a tour guide and found Magdi. Her profile was intriguing and we booked a private tour with her. Magdi was sensational!! She picked us up at the hotel and we spent 8 hours each of the next 2 days seeing first the Buda side of the river and then the Pest side. Her personal experience growing up, being educated in and working in Budapest was shared with us as we visited so many, many sites. It was though she knew us and was so in tune with what we liked and wanted to see, we simply walked along with her and enjoyed her vast knowledge of the city, the country and it's complex history. She has enormous energy, exudes a lively spirit and we learned while having fun. Magdi took us to local places and knew exactly where to go and what to do to see everything. We rode buses and trams and underground trams and the Metro. My friend and I both have rheumatoid arthritis and without saying anything to her she slowed our pace or picked it up and always made sure we were on firm footing while we walked. Anyone considering a trip to Budapest will get so much more out of the visit if they see Budapest with Magdi. You will never regret it and you will have wonderful memories. We've since done other tours, and no one can hold a candle to what Magdi offers, because she gives of herself. Budapest will always have a place in my heart because of her!!”Cathie H, Toronto, Canada
