Hungary | 3-Day Budapest Weekend Adventure
Join this guided weekend adventure exploring Budapest! A local, professional guide is guaranteed to provide the best the city has to offer. Stop by iconic sites such as Heroes’ Square, St. Stephens Basilica & the Holy Hand, Grand Market, and the Jewish Quarter. Kick back in the world-famous Szechenyi thermal baths and go caving deep inside the hills of Buda! By nightfall, experience the city’s incredible “ruin bars” on the popular local pub crawl. Small group sizes and centrally located accommodation ensures a personalized experience.
Kick off your unforgettable weekend by opting into an early Thursday arrival (Tour Option: Budapest 4 Days, 3 Nights) Those arriving Thursday can join the notorious boat party that cruises the Danube beneath the sparkling lights of the bridges, the Parliament and Budapest’s Castle District all while partying it up.
Friday, Day One: Meet Pest & Buda
A local Budapest guide will meet up with you at 9:45am at the hostel for a quick orientation meeting (Tour Option: Budapest 3 days, 2 nights). From there, we’ll wander down Andrássy Avenue, Budapest’s Champs Elysees, to see all the iconic sights: Hungarian Parliament building, a statue of Ronald Reagan, the American Embassy, and a memorial to the victims of the Nazis called Shoes on the Danube. (2.5 hrs)
After crossing the Danube on the Chain Bridge, and climbing up to the Castle, we’ll wrap up the walking tour at the famous Fisherman’s Bastion overlooking the entire city (1 hr). With a short lunch break, you’ll hop back across town via bus to the City Park to soak it up at Budapest’s best natural thermal spa: Szechenyi Baths (2.5hrs).
The amazing local guide will take you to her favourite deli where you get to pick exactly what you want before it’s flash-grilled in front of you. Dress to stay out as we’ll be pub crawling through District 7 and tossing back drinks in this neighborhood’s most distinctive venues: Ruin Bars. Left in shambles after WWII, this area is only recently gentrifying with a fun and young energy, drawing all the coolest kids in town.
Saturday, Day Two: The Heart of Pest
Meet up with your group and guide at 11:00am after breakfast and coffee and wear comfy shoes and clothes for the upcoming adventure. Begin by walking down Budapest’s oldest Medieval street, Vaci Utca, to the colorful Grand Market–the largest and oldest indoor market in the city (30 minutes). (1.5 hrs)
Now that you’re well-fed, it’s time to strap on jump-suits and headlamps, because its on for an afternoon of caving deep inside the hills of Buda! These massive underground caverns are filled with awe-inspiring stalagmite and stalactite mineral formations! Alternative activities will be arranged by your guide for those who are claustrophobic (3hrs).
Dinner is on us tonight, so be sure to come out for another round of typical Hungarian cuisine. Continue your escapades and dive into more ruin pubs, or opt into the ridiculous Bath Parties, where DJs spin the night away while you enjoy the pool party!
Sunday, Day Three: Tearful Goodbyes
Tour members are free to depart to catch their transportation arrangements. But if you’re sticking around, our guide will take you to breakfast at the Szimpla farmers’ market, followed by a visit to the Synagogue, the biggest in Europe.
