What to Expect
Travel to Eger, a lovely Baroque town in eastern Hungary, where you’ll find the country’s second-largest basilica and the fortress well known from the wars with the Turks. Many memorials remain from the 91-year period of Turkish domination, including the minaret and Turkish bath.
The full-day tour begins with a morning pick-up at your hotel in Budapest. After a 1.5-hour drive you’ll arrive in Eger, where you’ll see the main sights on a guided walk. After visiting the fortress and the city center you can enjoy an optional traditional Hungarian lunch and/or wine tasting (costs not included in the tour price).
Continue on to the marvelous Tokaj wine region, where you’ll have a chance to taste the well-knownTokaji Aszú, the most famous wine of the region. Tokaj, known as the king of wines, and wine of kings, according to Louis XIV, is a dessert wine produced from nobly rotten grapes!
The picturesque landscape has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002.
