Hungary Vacation & Tour Packages
Budapest is a popular stop on multi-city tours of Eastern Europe, but there's more to see in Hungary than just the capital city. If you prefer to spend your whole vacation in Hungary then aside from seeing the many sights of the two halves of Budapest or venture north and experience Eger, where Hungary's best red wines including the potent and world famous Bull's Blood are made.
Hungary is enjoying a major culinary revival. Magyar cuisine really took off in the 19th and early 20th centuries, had a hiatus during the Communist era and has since reawakened, now boasting 2 Michelin-starred high-end restaurants in the capital alongside several Bib Gourmand holders and a very strong level of gastronomy at all price levels. Whatever is on your plate you'll find a wine to match it with too, from full bodied reds to the renowned honey-sweet Tokaj dessert wine.
Although Hungary joined the European Union in 2004 along with many of its neighbors, the currency is still the Hungarian Forint and it is relatively weak too, so you will find prices here generally much lower than in Western European countries like Germany and Austria. As part of the Schengen area, crossing the border to Austria, Slovakia and Slovenia is now effortless, with no queues or passport checks.
"I am fairly independent and like to go off and walk and explore on my own. If you like this method of travel, JayWay does a good job. The staff in each hotel was very friendly and very helpful and Darja made me feel as if I were her only client. Very diligent in her efforts."
"We had a great holiday in Slovenia and Croatia thanks to JayWay Travel. Right from the planning stage then working out the local arrangements, to on the ground support. Once there, Antonia was like a personal tour manager, always monitoring our progress and ever ready to help with anything we needed assistance with."
