What you'll do

In winter there is generally SNOW in the hill where we go even that time when the city has no snow at all. In January and February 2022 there are perfect conditions for the tour all you have to do is to dress properly.
We will meet in the city center at Batthyány tér and we will go using my van to the hills of Buda. As we will reach the hills we will be using a unique way of transportation which is the CHAIRLIFT.
When we get to the top of the hill we will walk 10 minutes to reach the highest point of Budapest, we will visit the ELISABETH LOOKOUT TOWER. You will enjoy here a breathtaking scenery and the best view over the whole city. The lookout tower is the highest point in Budapest, height is 527 meter. Travelling by chairlift both ways a 15 minute ride up and down each way will be an unforgettable experience and it is 100% safe.
. You will be able to take special photos about Budapest from the top so bring your smart phone or camera..

In my childhood I spent a lot of time in the mountains of Buda. Just 2 hours gives you enough time to get away from the city if you have a car. I know the best place which offers really special experience and great views for the visitors. If you are in a bad mood or tired after a party night this place is perfect to start a wonderful day in a healthy way.

You will be enjoying the fresh air in the lovely woods and in the surrounding area. János hill is the highest point in Budapest. From the top views are just breathtaking, you can see for miles up here and have a beautiful view of the city. On top of János Hill is Elizabeth Lookout Tower you will get panoramic view of the city. I guarantee you will forget for a couple of hours the traffic and smog of the city and you will enjoy the nature here

    Would definitely recommend this experience. Victor was friendly, helpful and very knowledgable. The tower and chairlift gave stunning views into Budapest and we would definitely go again in another season!

    Too many people in the group!!! I use airbnb experience to avoid those very casual boring tour group activities from travel agency, but unfortunately this experience made me feel exactly the same. Not many communications and interesting informations, everything I could easily get from internet, also I could do this trip by myself, nothing unique. Also he doesn’t offer pick up service, a bit worthless for this price. I gave 2 star instead of 1 because Victor is a nice guy, but he really need to improve this experience.

    We learned so much about the area while on the look out tower. He really paid attention to our interests during conversation and not only told us historic stories about the tower but other things we were interested in.

    Victor was a brilliant tour guide and is very knowledgeable on Budapest. He was very welcoming and friendly during our trip. The chairlift to the peak of Budapest is very relaxing and really allows you to take in the view. We had a fun time with Victor and got some good ideas on our next trip to Budapest - thanks again Victor!
