Music Tours to Budapest

  • Split into two fascinating halves
  • Meeting point of many cultures

You will find a great welcome for your performers in Hungary, a land famous for gypsy folk music and great composers such as Bartok, Kodaly and Liszt. Positioned at the crossroads of East and West, Hungary enjoyed a golden age as part of the Habsburg Empire and its rich and varied history makes Hungary a fascinating place to visit today. We base our groups in Budapest, an intriguing city known as the Pearl of the Danube. Formed of the two towns Buda and Pest in 1873, Budapest contains many places of genuine interest, including the Royal Palace, the Parliament buildings and the Fisherman’s Bastion, as well as museums, parks, and fun activities for groups.
