So you like quirky? This is sounds delightfully quirky


Budapest is a spectacularly beautiful city at any time of the year, but particularly in winter.

One of the Hungarian capital's top hotels has a very quirky tour on offer that allows guests to explore the hidden gems of the city in a delightfully nostalgic VW Samba convertible.

The Anantara New York Palace Budapest's VW Guided City Tour features a customisable itinerary which lasts from two to four hours allowing guests to see exactly what they want to see.

The 59-year-old VW transports guests from fairytale squares and historic bridges to museums and centuries-old churches.

The chauffeur is also a history buff who can fill guests in on the secrets of Vajdahunyad Castle or drop them at the iconic Széchenyi thermal baths, or allow them to simply enjoy panoramic views of the Danube River from both the Buda and Pest hills.

Depending on the weather, the personalised tour can also include a stop at a secret park with a gourmet picnic basket filled with sumptuous bites prepared by executive chef Andras Wolf.

Anantara New York Palace Budapest Hotel is one of those classic European hotels with antique furnishings and is home to the New York Café where guests can enjoy freshly brewed coffee and pastries that the city’s poets and artists have adored for over a century.

The VW Guided City Tour costs €400 for 4 hours, for a maximum of six persons and needs to be booked 48 hours in advance.

It is one I have added to my bucket list.
