Highlights of These Tours
This wine tour and transfer from Budapest to Vienna (or Vienna to Budapest) will turn an otherwise uneventful trip into an exciting day of exploring two wineries as well as some great examples of Medieval and Baroque architecture and some local charming villages.
The tour focuses on the Sopron region in Hungary and the Burgenland wine region in Austria with Lake Fertő (Lake Neusiedl, UNESCO World Heritage Site). You’ll visit the two Eszterházy family castles in Fertőd (modelled after Versailles) and Eisenstadt as well as Rust on the shore of Lake Fertő, also known as the city of storks and fine wines!
Burgenland is Austria’s most varied wine region with reds, whites and even sweet botrytized wines and the tour includes a visit to a winery with a tasting of 6 to 8 different wines along with a generous platter of artisan cheese and charcuterie. You’ll also taste blaufrankisch, a type of grape used for producing red wine. Lunch will be at a restaurant or wine tavern serving regional specialties.
Why I Recommend These Tours
Traveling from Budapest to Vienna (or Vienna to Budapest) is easy. The trip takes only about 3 hours and you can drive, take the train/bus or even fly. However, you still have to arrange the trip, get to the station, the airport or rent a car. Also, there is actually a lot to see along the way, which of course you’ll miss out on if you’re trying to get from one city to the other the fastest way possible.
This tour offers you a stress-free way of traveling, while also visiting parts of both Hungary and Austria that you probably wouldn’t see otherwise. In addition, you’ll also get to learn about each country’s wine making traiditons and taste some of their best wines.

Sabbi was awesome!
“We took the tour from Vienna to Budapest and were able to stop at two wineries on our way to Budapest. He was incredibly knowledgeable not only about each city we visited but also willingly answered all of our questions regarding the history about each city/country. He was an absolute pleasure to have as a tour guide. Sabbi and the driver I’m so sorry I seemed to have forgotten his name! even surprised us at the end after learning we loved to climb to the tallest spot in the cities we visit to get the view, took us to the most beautiful lookout point in Budapest… Thanks again Sabbi!”
This was amazing!
“It was our first time using this sort of service and we had no idea what to expect. Our guide, George, was absolutely amazing. He not only was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful but had a wonderful sense of humor and had us laughing on the trip! He made our tour so special. We had the opportunity to see two different styles of wineries in two different countries, I thought it was brilliant the way they choose the two very different styles. We spent two weeks in Europe for our honeymoon and both agreed that this day was the most special day that we had. Thank you George!!!”
