Come! See for yourself!

We will be exploring Budapest, Kecskemét, Szeged, and the areas in between.

Each full day includes breakfast and one main meal, an English-speaking guide, motor coach transportation, transportation to and from the Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport to your hotel.

Take advantage of your airfare and participate in both September tours! Check out the details on our Explore Transylvania! tour.

Our tours require moderate physical effort and mental independence. Knowledge of the Hungarian language is useful but not required. Our smaller group size (18-28 people) allows us to visit smaller venues and artisans. We strongly recommend you purchase travel insurance! If you need help booking tickets and securing travel insurance, email me for a referral.

Our tour price does not include: airfare, passport and luggage fees, gratuities, travel insurance, or alcoholic drinks (unless a part of our activity). We are not responsible for any theft, accidents, or insurance-related incidents while traveling.

    My husband and I want to join this tour if it happens. Please add us to any interested passengers list you may be starting. My maiden name is Varga, so am excited to visit the horse farm. I’m also an avid quilter, foodie and wine lover, so this tour seems tailor made for me! I’d appreciate it if you can add both my emails (the one below and also kmvsantoro@gmail.com), but if not, please use the one below. So excited!!!

    Hi Liz,
    Is there a waiting list for the Fall Wine Tour? If so I would like to put my husband and myself on it. I know there are no specific plans yet but if travel were to open up I wouldn’t want to miss the chance to get on this tour this year.

    Very, Very Interesting Tour and I even have a cousin living in Kecskemét and I have been there for a visit also!

    Liz, Frank and I please reserve 2 spots in the Fall Folk and Arts tour. I assume credit card deposit of $3000 is ok. Would tomorrow be ok for a deposit? Thank you. Veronica/Ronnie Reilly

    Hi Liz Whenever the booking forms are available… We (Darlene and I ) are planning on the Folk Tour in Sept.

    I did check online and Hungary doesn’t require a visa for US citizens. As we discussed, send all info to me for both of us.

  6. Bea Frederickson says:

    Hi Liz. I’m confirming I plan to go on the September 2023 tour to Hungary. Since my payment for the cancelled 2020 trip is with you already, can you let me know the balance for September 2023 trip and I will send a check.
    Thank you!
