Hungary Tour Packages

Deciding the best time to tour Hungary hinges on the experiences you seek and the weather preferences you have. Hungary experiences a continental climate characterized by its distinct seasons.

  • Spring (March to May)

    Spring (March to May) is a delightful time for tours. The weather is mild, and the countryside is in bloom, perfect for exploring the natural beauty of places like the Danube Bend. Spring is also less crowded, offering a more relaxed touring experience.

  • Summer (June to August)

    Summer (June to August) is the peak tourist season. It's warm and sunny, ideal for outdoor activities like visiting Lake Balaton or enjoying Budapest's vibrant city life and numerous festivals. However, be prepared for higher tourist numbers during this time.

  • Autumn (September to November)

    Autumn (September to November) sees fewer tourists and offers a picturesque landscape with its array of fall colors. This season is ideal for cultural tours, wine tasting in the country's famous vineyards, and enjoying the thermal baths in cooler weather.

  • Winter (December to February)

    Winter (December to February) is cold, but the charm of Hungary's Christmas markets, especially in Budapest, makes it a magical time to visit. The thermal baths are particularly appealing during the chilly weather.

Reviews for Hungary Tours and Vacations

Globus provided a diverse itinerary. Tour director was personable, caring and extremely knowledgeable. Breakfasts were excellent. However, most dinners included in the package were disappointing- either insufficient quantity or quality with limited choices. Wine pours were below standard amount.
