Budapest is not only beautiful by day, by night the city lights will impress and delight..this is when Budapest shines! Imagine a moonlit tour by the Danube, across the illuminated stunning bridges. The majestic Castle area upon the hills of Buda, enchanting and exhilarating. Budapest by night would not be complete without a tour of downtown, this city loves the nightlife.  Don't wait with the crowds for a traditional city tour. Lean back in your authentic, vintage Russian Military Jeep, buckle up and leave the rest to the guides! Enjoy the spectacular beauty of Budapest. This tour is highly recommended for those who wish to see a "bit more" of Budapest, as you will be taken to where city tours have no access. See the wonders and secrets of this city. The tour takes you along the Hungarian Champs Elysees (Andrassy Ut). Make a stop at Heroes Square (Hosok Teren) for sightseeing and for photos. From here you can see the Western Railway Station (Nyagati Palyaudvart) designed by August De Serres, built by the Eiffel Company of Paris,12 years before the Eiffel Tower. The tour continues towards the beautiful Parliament Building, St Stephens/St Istvan Basilica and then you will make your way to Buda. Make a short detour/stop at the medieval castle, then venture onwards to the city's highest lookout point where you will see breathtaking panoramic views of Budapest, The Danube, Buda Castle. While heading back you can admire the city as you cross the Danube by bridge and head towards the Jewish Quarter. Here you will find Europe's largest functioning Synagogue and historical neighborhood with its own unique & interesting atmosphere.  Throughout the tour your driver will be sharing interesting stories on points of interest and is open to questions. There is also the option of using your audio guide or you can listen to music with the JBL hi-fi system. Grab your camera and tour Budapest!

    Over the experience helpfull

    One of our friend was sick and needed to get to a hospital when the Jeep arrived. We had problem talking to the hospitals because of the language. The two guys driving the jeep helped us by calling around, drove us to the hospital and went all the way inside to explain. They even offered us to make the trip the day after. One of the guys picked us up the day after and we had an amazing tour. When we arrived back home he even offered to drive us to the restaurant we had an reservation. We will give them as many stars as even possible... more than perfect!

    Laszlo our guide was great, he took us via various routes through streets and areas we would never have seen on a bus tour. He gave us plenty of time at each stop off to explore the sights and offered us water and blankets if we wanted them. Pick up and drop off from our hotel was an added bonus.

    A fabulous (and quirky) tour of beautiful Budapest

    Thank you so very much to the Retro-tour team for a thoroughly enjoyable evening! I organised this as a surprise for my partner, Peter, thinking it would be a quirky and unique way for us to see Budapest at night. Our Retro-tour guide picked us up from our hotel and, after the warmest welcome and introductions, we set off in our old Russian jeep. To be shown around a most beautiful city at sundown by someone who knows and loves the place was a truly amazing experience. Your warmth and generosity will not be forgotten. We cannot thank you enough and look forward to our next Retro-tour adventure.
