Thousands of Happy Customers
We have a loving guide and a very good driver. We did enjoy the private tour which also saved us fro moving luggage.
"Nice tour- great idea!"
Andrea did a nice job, however I felt she may have talked a little too much. It could be hard to hear her sometimes. We appreciated her insight into life in Hungary, and experiences when the iron curtain fell. Gyor and Eszterhazy castle were the highlights for me. Sopron, while beautiful, was a little bit of a letdown, perhaps because we didn’t get there until 5, and it seemed to be a bit sleepy. Also, we were near the end of the day, and a bit tired. Overall, it was a great way to travel between Budapest and Vienna!
"Excellent way to transfer from Budapest to Vienna!!"
This side trip transfer was amazing. Our tour guide and driver were very knowledgeable and the towns and cities we stopped at were all very interesting. It was nice to see and learn the sights and history of the areas between the 2 large cities.
"A tour to remember!"
Our tour guide Andrea was excellent and so with our driver Thomas. Our tour from Budapest to Vienna was worth the price, at least we saw places on our way to Vienna instead of just taking the train.
"Glad we did it !"
There was only one negative and that was our bus was over booked and two customers had to find another way to Vienna. Our advice is make sure you contact and confirm your reservation a day or to ahead of your departure. Other than for that situation we were very impressed with our guide Andrea and her enthusiasm for the history of Hungary. We saw and experienced another side of Hungary outside of Budapest . Highly recommend this experience if you have the time.
"Fabulous way to get from Budapest to Vienna off the beaten path!!"
We wanted to travel from Budapest to Vienna but wanted to see more along the way than a train would have allowed. Our lovely day trip with our guide Noemi and driver Noah was the perfect solution! They were both professional and very accommodating. Noemi was well informed and happy to answer all our questions. I would recommend this trip for anyone who wants to take the road less traveled and see more along the way. It was a good value for the price!!
"Great way to get from Budapest to Vienna"
This was the first Side Trip for me and my wife. Were we looking for a way to get from Budapest to Vienna and see some of the sights in between. Side Trips was the perfect choice. They met us at the pickup location with a nice minivan, tour guide, and driver. Besides me and my wife, there were 3 other guests. The minivan was very roomy and comfortable. We made 4 stops on the way to Vienna. All of these stops were to quaint little towns off the beaten path that had few tourists but were very quaint with scenic views and interesting history. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The driver seemed to be a good driver who would drop us off near a good starting point then go park somewhere until called by the guide. It was everything we were looking for. We will certainly use Side Trips again.
"Nice way to travel between major cities"
Wonderful way to see the small towns and less visited parts of the country while travelling to and from major cities, and economical too. One would not likely have visited the places along the route, if not for such a trip. Andrea our guide provided lots of flexibility in timing and what to do, and also allowed time to sample local foods.
"Get off the beaten path!"
This tour was an awesome way to see sights that you would miss if traveling by train or plane between cities. We loved exploring the smaller towns with our guide Andrea, who gave us really helpful background and history of Hungary. Highly recommend!
"Great tour! "
Andrea was awesome! We loved this tour and it was a highlight on our trip! We learned a lot and got to see parts of Hungary we would have never seen had we not signed up for this! Definitely recommend it.
"Take the scenic route "
A fun way to see more of Hungary and visit places you wouldn't normally do. Small group gives more flexibility.
"Good way to see smaller towns between Budapest and Vienna"
Our guide Andrea was very knowledgeable and speaks good English. Very friendly and helpful. Instead of taking a train straight from Budapest to Vienna, taking Sidetrip is a good way to look at other towns along the way. I thought it was money well spent.
"Nice Sopron visit"
My favorite place for this trip is Sopron. Unfortunately, the first bathroom stop has only 1 bathroom. We have 10 people on the bus tour and the bathroom stop was like 30 minutes. Generally, the tour is relaxing.
"What a GREAT history lesson!!!"
Naomi was very friendly and definitely knew everything about the history of many of the wars in Europe. We had a wonderful trip w/Thomas, our driver and Noemi, our tour guide. Stopped in amazing places. Tatabanya, Gyor, Fertud & Sopron. I would definitely recommend this trip. The only mishap was before the bus tour there was no confirmation the night before. It would be great if the company confirmed by cell phone text. Email confirmation is fine but with all the scam junk mail happening these days you never know if you are also being scammed. Thank you Side Trip tours for a wonderful experience in Central Europe ❤️
"Exploring the less trodden path"
This is an amazing idea we found on the internet. Instead of travelling by train/coach from point A to point B, you get the chance to explore beautiful towns/villages on the way. They provided a spacious van and the group was small (4 passengers in this trip) which made the tour relaxing. Our guide was Csenge on this trip who was absolutely amazing. She gave us a good overview of the history of the towns. We sampled local wine and food with her as well. The tour was well paced and relaxed. We reached Vienna by 7 in the evening. They are reasonably priced and we did another trip with them. Would definitely recommend.
Our lovely guide Csenge was really accommodating throughout the trip, introducing local cuisines and culture to us. SideTrip is a great way to discover hidden gems along the way to your destination.
"The perfect way to travel Europe's cities"
Highly recommend this tour to get you from Budapest to Vienna. Our guide Csenge was fantastic. A great way to see some of the towns and sites less frequented by other tourists.
"Winning combination: Budapest to Vienna,Transport and Guided Tour "
We were met at the pick up point by English speaking Andrea, who led us to the van. We expected a van with a SideTrip logo to be waiting at the pick up point, and we experienced some uncertainty until Andrea arrived. There were 4 passengers in all. We visited 3 sites on the way and Andrea was very knowledgable about the historical events and architechture. Sopron was especially interesting. It was a very hot day, and she made an effort to keep us out of the sun, and provided water bottles. We asked to arrive in Vienna earlier than originally planned, and the driver was willing to drive us as close as possible to our hotel.
"Exciting road trip"
Generally was pleasant and interesting to learn about some of the smaller cities outside the most travelled route and if you have the time to spend the entire day
"Enjoyable trip to Vienna"
Our driver and our guide was so good to us, always smiling, that's what we need as a traveler, our guide Chanka was so informative,she shows us every corner we need to see and told us about the history of the person or the places,she is not rushing us for the whole journey. It is a good way to take this bus to Vienna with the tour,get the chance to see the country side of the Budapest ,worth it.
"A wonderful experience, new places, new friends!"
We have had a wonderful trip from Budapest to Vienna with an incredible girl. She has been tireless, funny and really competent. Her enthusiasm was engaging and she showed us places that otherwise we would never have visited. We travelled with our girl, 5 years old, and it was nice for her too. Happy to have chosen this way to travel from one city to another.
"Amazing , useful and well done"
Just a great tour not to mention an informative and traveler-smart way to get between Budapest and Vienna. We saw so many things and just had a wonderful time. It doesn‘t get better than a great tour with a great guide. We really recommend it!
"Amazing way to travel from Budapest to Vienna"

No matter the stops, the guide always makes the trip, and our guide was fantastic. She was super enthusiastic, energetic and informative. She was so animated and humorous when delivering the information.
"Good value and engaging tour!"
A great way to get from A to B with a lot of interesting history along the way. Our guide was really informative and energetic and went the extra mile to make sure we got the most out of each visit along the route. All stops were well worth seeing and I'd recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about the history and culture as well.
"A Budapest - Vienna trip"
Wonderful trip. Wonderfoul group. Amazing tour guide! Thank you for the experience and all the information shared during those 10 hours :)
"Great way to see sights"
Tour was relaxing fun and educational
"Worth every penny!"
Just such an interesting and varied day. Our guide was so knowledgeable and told us the history of both countries in an amusing and often moving way. Highly recommended and an unforgettable experience.
"Informative and entertaining tour"
We had a great time on the trip - it was a very fun way to travel between Budapaest and Vienna. We stopped at lots of interesting places, there were plenty of stops for snacks/toilets, and a lovely lunch at a local restaurant. 10/10 would recommend.
"Budapest - Vienna Sightseeing tour"
Our guide was great, very happy and bright. She gave us a bit of history along the way. She even told us about her own personal family storyies. It was a terrific day, even though it rained. It was a great way to see the countryside and have a transfer at the same time. A very clever way to get from A to B. i highly recommend this tour.
It was a wonderful day. We learned some history and saw the beautiful scenery. And our guide was kind and passionate. Love the trip.
An interesting tour, with a charismatic and knowledgeable tour guide. He lead the tour with enthusiasm and understanding of the group he was leading and was able to answer all questions asked.
