DAY 2

Today join your expert local guide for a comprehensive sightseeing tour to discover the sights and learn about the complex history  of Budapest, the glorious capital of Hungary.  This is in fact a tale of two cities, Buda on its hill towering above its partner Pest on the flat plain below and only becoming one united city in 1873.  Highlights include a visit to the wonderful Central Market with its huge hall, and a drive around Budapest’s elegant boulevards to Heroes’ Square and then across the mighty Danube and up to Gellert Hill with views over this famous river which divides Buda from Pest – the two sides linked by the iconic  Chain and Elizabeth Bridges.  The medieval cobblestone streets of the Castle District are a joy to wander and your tour also takes you to witness the spectacular panorama from the Fisherman’s Bastion over the splendid Parliament building, one of the largest in Europe. Finish at the popular pedestrian shopping street of Váci Utca within easy reach of the city’s fine museums and monuments, churches and synagogues, historic squares and buildings.  Freshen up at your hotel before enjoying an evening of traditional Hungarian culture including dinner and a folklore show.  Overnight Budapest.

Gala Concert  – Less well known than its illustrious Viennese neighbour, Budapest hosts equally outstanding musical recitals – so why not enjoy a visit to the Hungarian State Opera for a recital or a concert ?

The Thermal Baths – Budapest is on a geothermal “hot spot” in the earth’s crust where piping hot mineral waters emerge direct from the ground so thermal baths are a historic institution with the locals and you can enjoy the genuine Hungarian Thermal Bath experience here in the city today. You will feel like a new person after your spa treatment!

Cook like a Local – Join your chefs for a guided tour of the famous Great Market Hall in Budapest.

You will learn the techniques that have been passed down through the generations here in the heart of Hungary and prepare a wonderful meal then it’s time to sit down with a glass of wine local Hungarian wine such as Bulls Blood or Tokai and enjoy the “fruits of your labours”
