Description of Tour

The tour starts from your hotel in Budapest, from where you will be taken to the south side of Lake Balaton, to the city of Szántód. After a short visit of the area you will travel by ferry across the lake to Tihany on the other side. Tihany is the most famous city in the Balaton region. On the way you will learn the importance of this lake from a local’s point of view. You will also find out why it is called the "Hungarian Sea" and how popular the place really is.

Tihany is a peninsula reaching into the lake, which provides an amazing view to the whole Balaton region. Here, you will visit the most important sights of the city, like the Tihany Abbey. Walk inside the building and enjoy the beauty of its frescoes and wonderful interior. The natural sights of the area are just as beautiful as the artificial ones. Stop for a few minutes to admire the unforgettable views from the shore and take a look into the Balaton Highlands National Park.

The next destination on this full-day trip is Balatonfüred, a city near Tihany and one of the most popular holiday locations for locals and tourists. Here you will learn about the different traditions of the region and the Hungarian way of celebrating a holiday. You will also visit the famous Tagore promenade and the unique Heart Hospital, built in the 18th-century. You will learn about the importance and healing powers of the city’s famous sparkling sources.

The last stop of the tour to the north of Balaton is the city of Herend. Here, you will visit the large and unique Herend Porcelain Manufacturer, and discover how the world famous Herendi porcelains are made. Learn about the importance of these products, hear about their history and how difficult they are to make.
