Meet your guide and sit back on your short van ride winding through the city streets as you head towards the hills of Buda. Board your chairlift at the station and head up János Hill in complete comfort on the 15-minute chairlift ride. At the top, disembark and go on a short but steep uphill walk to Elisabeth Lookout tower. Walk up the tower to the highest point of Budapest, 527 meters above the rest of the city. Enjoy a panoramic all of the city from this high vantage point. Learn about Budapest from your local guide along the way and enjoy the fresh air, as the area is part of Normafa National Park. Head back downhill via the chairlift and be dropped back off at your original starting point.
