Discover Hungarian Wines

This pre-cruise land program is available to book for all confirmed group members. For a complete description and pricing, contact Food & Wine Trails.

It is no surprise that Hungary's capital is as architecturally stunning as it is. Budapest was the "tour de force" of the Hapsburgs, the Royal Empire that ruled most of the European continent from the 15th to 18th-century. Once concealed behind the Iron Curtain, Budapest has propelled itself forward without hesitation and is now one of the most dynamic and fun cities in Europe, with a vitality that at times seems to contrast with its staid, Imperial beauty.

The best travel experiences are consistently made from a combination of local expertise and unique access. Not only does the luxurious 5-Star Sofitel Budapest Chain Bridge Hotel have one of the city's best wine-centric restaurants, but it also boasts the best views of the river, so we have secured Danube view rooms for all of our guests. Additionally Food & WIne Trails is friends with a Northern California winemaker, Nimrod Kovacs, who owns the sister winery of one of Hungary's highest rated wineries. He has invited Swan & Moshin cruisers to an exclusive private tour and authentic lunch at his winery in Eger.

During our Hungarian pre-cruise program you will enjoy the following highlights:

• Two nights’ accommodation at a 5-star luxury hotel on the Danube river in Budapest
• Wine-paired welcome dinner with Hungarian sparkling wine reception
• Full day guided tour to the Eger wine region with two winery visits and a wine-paired lunch
• Transportation directly to the ship on embarkation day
