  • This was an incredibly informative tour with an easy ride with many stops to catch your breath. You tour both sides of the river and learn a lot of Hungarian history. I also enjoyed speaking with our guide during the refreshment break about life in Budapest.

  • LOVED this tour. Great way to see the city.

  • Excellent tour - about 4 hours - guide Balint was very knowledgeable and provided excellent historical information - lovely stop where we enjoyed a couple of strudels and coffee included in the price which was a bonus - good way to orient yourself as a first time visitor to Budapest - highly recommended

  • Great fun. The tour leader was amazing. A great way to see the city.

  • A great introduction to Budapest. I did the evening tour and thoroughly enjoyed it all. Adrienne was a great guide and the cycling was very easy. We saw heaps of sights, such as the Basilica, Parliament house, chain bridge, market hall and the great synagogue, as well as glimpses of the castle district and margaret island. Adrienne gave us good information about places to visit and less touristy areas/times etc. Brilliant.

  • We had an amazing time during our cycling around Budapest. It's the best way to see any city in Europe as opposed by bus. The tour guide was exceptional, spoke perfect english and provided great detail on the history of Budapest. Highly recommend this tour.

  • Great experience - would bike again!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Really enjoyed it, interesting, good guide. I had booked the wrong day but they changed it without any problem. Would definitely use again.

  • The worst.
    I have to say, I made mistake to choose this tour company.
    When I booked this tour, in the information was very clearly, that is a 3.5 hours tour. However we finished in last than 2 hours.
    We were not biking, we were racing. The guide was a young girl. Luckily I don't remember her name
