Day Trip from Budapest: Puszta Horse Show and Countryside

1. Day Trip from Budapest: Puszta Horse Show and Countryside

Budapest is a great city, but it can be quite overwhelming to the traveler. Its size and loud buses can drive even the most experienced urban traveler to the woods. So why not get out of the city and into the beautiful and colorful landscape of Hungary's plains (the puszta)? Here you'll be able to lounge on the Danube and Tisza rivers, and gain a deeper understanding of the Hungarian countryside. On your day trip, you'll enjoy a visit to a traditional farm, where you can see a horse show and dine on a fine Hungarian feast. Lunch includes: • Goulash soup • Grilled chicken made in a traditional "Puszta" style with mixed garnish (potato, rice, vegetable) • Dessert: milk pie • 1 glass of white wine and mineral water Then take a short walk in the famous town of Kecskemét. Here you'll have the chance to cool off with some drinks while taking in the sights. Your meals will be accompanied by live Gypsy music! The tour ends downtown. Your guide will be happy to point you towards another good restaurant or things to do afterwards, so make sure to ask!

One hour drive in the comfort of a 7-seat Mercedes van we were only 3 in the car. For animal lovers, it is a place to be as at the ranch we were able to visit the stables too. Here you can see some animals like the rack sheep and the puli dog which are originally from Hungary. The horse show was remarkable and the skills of the cowboys are extraordinary. The food was tasty and overall it was a nice getaway from the city. It is one of the best things you can do in Budapest if you want to see the countryside too. Highly recommended.

Just great

The ride was great. Break in the city with the guide very, very educational. Since he was born in this city, he was able to contribute even more. The yard and the show were great. Also our carriage ride with the 4 Lippizaners as a team. Visiting the farm with the cattle and sheep that can only be found in Hungary. Food with music accompaniment very good and very nice. Maybe it wasn't typically Hungarian, but for us it was. The Swedish group was also enthusiastic. We were a small group of 2 people.

This was a fabulous day trip. I took my 3 children. Our coach driver Lazlo and tour guide Hilda were fantastic. Hilda's knowledge of Hungarian history and local life is awesome. The trip is very well organised.
