Introducing Budapest! The River Danube splits Budapest into two parts – Buda and Pest – which sit on opposite sides of the river, connected by the mighty Chain bridge making this sophisticated capital, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. This is a city that glistens with a metallic eosin glaze, which gives brightly coloured Zsolnay tiles the lustre that makes Budapest's skyline glitter. Most of the action happens in Pest, on the east of the river, where there is a score of smart restaurants and boutiques. But on the other side is the magical Buda Castle and some of the city’s most famous thermal baths which makes this city beautiful, trendy as well as therapeutic.

WHY TRAVEL WITH US?
Hear what past guests say about us....
"This trip to Portugal was a once in a lifetime experience. Our intimate group of 10 learned more about the cuisine, viticulture, wine-making, history and architecture of Portugal in 11 days than we thought possible. The trip was meticulously planned and executed by Devaki Das and we would enthusiastically recommend you consider taking a future trip with Weave A Thousand Journeys"

Portugal - A Food Lovers Odyssey, Sept 2018
"I cannot do justice to the amount of detailed planning that Devaki did for this trip. From the hotel accommodations and travel arrangements to the restaurant reservations and winery visits, everything was first class. The group was small enough that it had a very intimate feel. I would highly recommend a “Weave a Thousand Journeys” to anyone who loves good food and wine, interesting conversation, exploring different cities and architecture and has a sense of adventure! "
