Danube bend back to Budapest tour

My husband and I will be in Budapest for 4 weeks in September 2023. We will be taking a train to the Danube bend for an overnight stay. We are looking for a full or half day tour taking us back to Budapest. I am only able to find tours from Budapest to the Danube bend. Does anyone know if there are any companies that offer a tour starting at the bend and ending in Budapest? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Karen, I'm assuming it's a bus tour? If so, the buses have to return. I would check with your company that is getting you to the Danube Bend - try to call or email them.

Of course maybe you already did this and they drive empty buses back.

I do know though that you can take a river cruise ship from Passau, which is just a little farther up the Danube than the bend, to Budapest. It would probably take a couple days, but you get to see a lot of really cool stuff along the way. It's a great stretch of river, Passau to Budapest.

The Danube Bend is a bend in the river and its known primarily for the towns of Szentedre, Visegrad and Esztergom. Vac on the opposite side of the river I suppose is on the bend as well.

There is a train to Esztergom, maybe that is what you are taking?

Its not a bad idea as getting all the way to Esztergom and then trying to see all 3 towns on the way back in one day is way too much effort.

So, here are two names to contact:

Of it works with the schedule take the boat from Szentendre back to Budapest. Oh, and you can do your own tour on busses. But I would call those two guides. Not cheap though as it's going to be a very full day for them to drive to Esztergom to get you, then stop in Visegrad and Szentendre before going on to Budapest. But I think it's a good trip.

Sorry! I thought you meant the Danube loop in Western Austria. Nevermind
