Your private tour will begin at your hotel, where your very friendly and knowledgeable guide will pick you up and begin your tour journey to Eger. Eger is the county seat of Heves, and the second largest city in Northern Hungary. The town is located on the Eger Stream, on the hills of the Bükk Mountains. Eger is mainly known for its castle, thermal baths, historic buildings (including the northernmost Turkish minaret) and, above all else, the best Hungarian red wines.

After arrival you will have a sightseeing in Eger visit the most important spots.
• The Castle of Eger, noted for its successful defence against the 1552 Ottoman invasion.
• The 17th-century minaret. The northernmost Turkish minaret in Europe is 40 meters high and one of only three survivors in Hungary. It can be climbed for a good view of the town centre.
• Dobó tér. The Baroque Minorite Church (1758–67), built to the designs of Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer of Prague with original ceiling frescoes by Márton Reindl, is the focal point of the town's most imposing square, flanked by the Town Hall and the old priory buildings, part of which contain the Palóc Museum, showing the artefacts of a distinctive regional ethnic community. 

After the sightseeing the tour continue to the "Valley of the Beautiful Woman" – An area of Eger famous for its red wines (Bikaver or Bulls Blood) and known for its wine cellars. You will visit a cellar, where you will have the opportunity to taste the best 3 wines of the region and after you can go for lunch (not included).

After lunch your guide will take you to the Hortobágy National Park. Enjoy your walk along the reeds and lagoons of the lake with its species-rich birdlife and explore with the help of the National Park’s guides the hidden treasures of Lake Tisza wildlife.

After a one-kilometer boat trip you reach the boardwalk. Two bird hides and a bird watching tower along the 1500 meters long trail offer the possibility to take a look at the birdlife. A small island with tables and benches invite visitors to rest during their stay. 

After so many golden memories your guide will take you back to Budapest.
