Danube Explorer

The Blue Danube is both the inspiration and the guide for your escorted European tour from Vienna to Budapest. As you follow the river’s path, you’ll discover the elegant beauty of imperial cities along with charming hidden gems of Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary. Your Cosmos Lite independent escorted tour is the perfect way to vacation your way—with à la carte optional excursions and loads of free time. Choose the optional excursions that interest you on MyCosmos, get pointers from your Tour Director, and never lose your way with the CosmosGO app. Step back into the time of imperial splendor in Vienna and the “Pearl of the Danube”—Budapest. We make it easy to see it all with complimentary 24-hour public transport cards in both Vienna and Budapest.

Linger in one of Vienna’s countless museums, visit the royal stables, explore the famous Schönbrunn Palace, or spend some time at the nearby Prater amusement park. Customize your day with your activities or spend leisure time in a Viennese café. Next, stop in the Slovakian city of Bratislava on the banks of the Danube. History buffs can select an optional biking excursion to the Iron Curtain, or take in the incredible views and local libations at a traditional tavern or at Bratislava’s UFO bar. On your way to Budapest, you’ll have the chance to explore the Hungarian towns of Györ, Esztergom, and Szentendre—each with historic, artistic, and natural wonders to explore. Before your trip, check out MyCosmos for your optional activity selections. With your choice of excursions, you can trust the travel details to us each step of your European vacation along the Danube. MyCosmos gives you the freedom to schedule your days as you please—or explore with no schedule at all!
