Győr, Lébény and Pannonhalma Day Tour from Budapest

3. Győr, Lébény and Pannonhalma Day Tour from Budapest

Discover the beautiful baroque buildings of Győr on a scenic full-day tour from Budapest, complete with round-trip transfers from the city location of your choice. Apart from a short period of 4 years throughout its history, Győr remained free from Turkish occupation. Liberated in 1598, it was at the forefront of the artistic Baroque movement, which developed in the city earlier than Eastern settlements of Hungary. By the mid 1600s, Győr’s Baroque downtown was established. As you wander the streets, you will see typical bay and bow windows on corner houses, and the Bishop's Cathedral where the reliquary of Saint King Ladislaus I of Hungary is kept. Admire the Franciscan Church, and house that Napoleon stayed in while fighting the Battle of Győr. Esterhazy Palace is another fine example of Győr’s baroque design. Continue to nearby Lébény, which survived Mongol and Turkish invasions and maintains much of its medieval character. Its most famous monument is the Romanesque church of St. James, which you will visit before you drive to Pannonhalma. The 1,000-year-old Pannonhalma Archabbey is one of the most historical monuments of Hungary. Notable sites in the hilltop complex are the 13th-century Basilica, and Arboretum, while views extend across the vineyards of the Pannonhalma-Sokoróalja region.

Good trip to Budapest, pick up was timely and the journey took about 3 hrs. We then had a local tour guide take us around for 2 hours before letting us roam on our own for the next 2 hours. It isn't enough time to visit any of the attractions but was able to give walk around the key tourist areas of both parts of the river and get a good overview of the city. Driver spoke good English and was great.

Beautiful city and really deserves several days but if you only have one day, we’ll worth the drive. Guide was a little too chatty and went off on random tangents but still provided good insights and history on the city.

Great time with this tour. Our tour driver Lukas was on time. He was knowledgeable and very nice. I would recommend this tour. Lots of free time to explore on your own.
