Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We will contact you a few days before the trip to discuss pick-up time. It will be probably around 9am.

Departure Time

9:00 AM
Your full-day journey begins with pickup at your accommodations in Budapest or Vienna. Group size is limited to six to ensure an intimate experience.

Head through the scenic countryside of the Austro-Hungarian border, into the charming Hungarian town of Sopron and Austria’s Burgenland wine regions. In Sopron, stop at a winery to sample five to eight varietals of regional wine. You’ll have some time to admire the medieval, Baroque and Renaissance architecture of the town, and visit the nearby Pan-European Picnic Park. Your guide will share how a peaceful 1989 demonstration here helped drive the fall of the Berlin Wall.

A stop in a Burgenland winery will then treat your palette to a handful of reds and whites, including a local sweet wine made from mold-affected grapes. You’ll explore Eisenstadt, the former home of Hungary’s Esterházy family, where you can wander around the grounds of the grand Esterházy Palace (Schloss Esterházy).

Then it’s on to Lake Neusiedl (Lake Ferto), a UNESCO-listed landscape as well as Europe’s second largest steppe lake. The area attracts large numbers of storks in the spring and summer and you’ll have a perfect opportunity for photos.

You’ll also stop in Rust, a lakefront town in Austria. Here you’ll be offered some free time to walk and admire the brightly-hued houses and wineries. If you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the blackboards that record the numbers of visiting storks in the summer.

There will also be a break for lunch (at own expense) at a winery or Austrian buschenschank or heuriger, where you can typically choose from dishes such as local cheese, wiener schnitzel (breaded veal) and fried chicken.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your accommodations in either Vienna or Budapest.

Stop At:  
Lake Neusiedl
Start your transfer with a pickup from your hotel in central Budapest or Vienna. Meet your knowledgeable guide, and board your air-conditioned minivan. Your route snakes through the idyllic countryside of the Austro-Hungarian border, taking in the UNESCO-listed landscapes around Lake Neusiedl (Lake Ferto) and Hungary’s lovely Sopron and Austria’s Burgenland wine regions. Stop at one winery to sample five to eight varietals of wine. In Sopron, wrap your taste buds around the local red wines and in Burgenland sample both reds and whites, perhaps including one of the local sweet botrytized wines, made from mold-affected grapes. Absorb the views over the reed-fringed Lake Neusiedl (Lake Ferto) and learn how this body of water — central Europe’s second-largest steppe lake — attracts hordes of storks in spring and summer. Stop in the Austrian lakefront town of Rust, and if you wish, enjoy free time to stroll around its pretty streets, bright-colored houses and wineries, perhaps seeing the summertime blackboards that record the numbers of visiting storks. Also, call at the historical Hungarian town of Sopron to admire its medieval, Baroque and Renaissance architecture, and visit the nearby Pan-European Picnic Park. Stretch your legs and learn how a peaceful 1989 demonstration here helped drive the fall of the Berlin Wall soon afterward. Spend time, too, in Eisenstadt, Burgenland’s capital and formerly home to Hungary’s noble Esterházy family. Enjoy some free time to stroll around the grounds of the family’s Baroque residence, the Esterházy Palace (Schloss Esterházy). Around midway through your journey, break for lunch at a winery, at a local Hungarian restaurant or Austrian buschenschank or heuriger. Venues vary, but expect to choose from dishes such as gulyás soup, chicken paprikash, local cheese, wiener schnitzel (breaded veal) and fried chicken. Your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel in either Vienna or Budapest.

My friend and I did this excursion as a fun way to transfer from Budapest to Vienna. It was the best excursion we did during our vacation. The tour started off at 9am (as promise) with our tour guide meeting us in our hotel lobby with fresh baked Hungarian biscuits and bottled water that she had picked up for us to snack on during the day. The biscuits were still warm!!! The trip through the countryside was so beautiful and our guide was very knowledgeable of the sites and history we came across. She also spoke English very well so we never had any issues communicating. At the first winery we were greeted with a delicious charcuterie board in addition to the wines we tasted. At the second winery, we toured the cellar and had an unlimited number of tastings (something that we had never experienced in the US). For lunch, we stopped at this amazing restaurant on the side of a hill, located close to an Abbey. It was delicious and gorgeous!I was a little hesitant about the fee since you can easily find cheaper ways to transfer between the cities; however, it was worth every cent. My only regret was not buying more wine!

Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We visited two small wineries which were quite nice and entertaining. Our lunch stop was in the Hungarian countryside, which was perfect. The owner of the restaurant did not speak English, but our guide saved the day. My wife had the most enjoyable meal of our trip, Overall, a very relaxing, informative, and delightful excursion.

Sabbi was awesome! We took the tour from Vienna to Budapest and were able to stop at two wineries on our way to Budapest. He was incredibly knowledgeable not only about each city we visited but also willingly answered all of our questions regarding the history about each city/country. He was an absolute pleasure to have as a tour guide. Sabbi and the driver I'm so sorry I seemed to have forgotten his name! even surprised us at the end after learning we loved to climb to the tallest spot in the cities we visit to get the view, took us to the most beautiful lookout point in Budapest. They were an absolute pleasure and I highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants a beautiful tour of the Austrian and Hungarian countrysides. The wineries we went to were very happy to have us and the wine was incredible. Thanks again Sabbi!

This was amazing! It was our first time using this sort of service and we had no idea what to expect. Our guide, George, was absolutely amazing. He not only was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful but had a wonderful sense of humor and had us laughing on the trip! He made our tour so special. We had the opportunity to see two different styles of wineries in two different countries, I thought it was brilliant the way they choose the two very different styles. We spent two weeks in Europe for our honeymoon and both agreed that this day was the most special day that we had. Thank you George!!!

Our guide Tomas met us at our hotel and after placing our luggage in the van a fantastic day began. We started at a small winery in Etyek which was beautiful and the owner of the winery was very friendly. The wines were delicious as was the cheese plate. We then proceeded to the restaurant at the Panonhalma Abbey. Good food, good company in Tomas and a beautiful view. Oh, and more wine. We then drove to the Esterhazy winery and, you guesses it, had more wine and yummy cheeses. The tour was very interesting and we were not anywhere close to inebriated by the end of the tour. We then walked around a vey pretty little town and saw where the Pan-European picnic was held in August, 1989. We had a personable and interesting tour guide, mostly beautiful weather and we highly recommend this your.

Why get a boring train between Budapest and Vienna when there are so many things to do in between? This was a private transfer and was absolutely fantastic. There are no words to describe how pleased we are with this tour. Tour guide and driver were super friendly, kind and knowledgeable. First stop was at an amazing and beautiful little winery in Hungary in which we tried a lot of delicious wines that they accompanied with a lot of food. Second stop was at a charming little town in Vienna in which we had a very nice lunch in a very nice place. We also visited a beautiful little town by a lake and the place where the pan-european picnic was held this is the event that marked the beginning of the fell of the iron curtain. Finally we went to another winery in Austria. This one was very fancy and modern but very good as well. If you are interested in doing something fun and delicious the traveling between Budapest and Vienna, this is your option!

This trip was literally the highlight of our journey. We took the tour from Budapest to Venna instead of the train....good choice! Our guide Tamas was THE BEST!!!!! He knew wine, he knew Hungarian history. The first little winery we went to, was small yet fabulous.Sorry, but I lost the paper that had all the names!!!!..I am from California wine country, and this litle winery was the real deal! They even had Pinot, and us Napa-Sonoma folks are kind of Pinot snobs....but theirs was special!!! We learned all about Hungarian wines, had a luscious snack in their little tasting toom. PERFECT. Then we went to a fabulous lunch across from a castle, then another winery....good wine, modern facility, and had a tour. Continued our travels to some other quaint spots, and finished off with where the iron curtain fell. Tamas told us the whole story. Almost unfathomable....and this happened in 1989!! I would recommend this tour highly....if you are just wanting a tour of the countryside with some history or if you are a wine lover...this is your tour!!!!
