Guides and bus drivers spoke good English and could also speak German. As soon as we left Vienna there was something worth knowing about the sights we passed, and later about Austria and Hungary. Since we only had a small bus, there was 1 pee break on the 3-hour journey. After we stretched our feet in the park behind Heroes' Square, we drove up to the Castle (Buda) with the Hungarian guide, also here during the trip a lot of information, and then made a small tour to the Fishermen's Bastion. After that we drove back down to Pest and had 2 hours of free time. We were shown a restaurant for lunch, but it was not compulsory. I ate in Langos town instead. During free time, one can go shopping or see a sight on their own. I recommend St. Stephen's Basilica.

Great day trip! Budapest is beautiful and you get to see a good amount for only visiting for a day! Our tour guides were excellent. They give you a good amount of breaks and free time as well!
