The Turquoise Sea of Hungary: Lake Balaton Private Tour


  • Experience Lake Balaton, a top hidden treasure region of Europe
  • Visit Europe's largest freshwater lake
  • Let the peace and beauty of the surroundings refresh you
  • Visit Tihany Peninsula, Balatonfüred and some local treasures
  • Soak up the region's restorative and relaxing energies


Arriving to the lake we take you to a spot which has one of the best panoramas at the lake. The city Balatonfüred was always beloved by artists and writers and for good reason; the pretty promenade and beautiful villas and mansions will very likely steal your heart.  Upon arrival, experience the beauty of the peninsula up close. Thanks to the special attributes of its landscape, its geological idiosyncrasies, its diverse flora and fauna, it was the first designated protected area in Hungary. Tihany is both a gorgeous peninsula on the lake, and the a lovely, quaint, historic village on the peninsula. At the top of the village, a church and a monastery were founded as early as nine centuries ago. We have an option here to visit the church and the exhibition about the history of the region and the Benedictine monastery, where they keep the oldest Hungarian written document (which is almost 1000 years old). At the end of the day, marvel at the beauty of the lake on a scenic, 10-minute ferry ride from the Tihany peninsula. After that you will be driven back to your hotel in Budapest.
