    This was the best tour we did in Budapest. Monika our guide led us thru the key places of historical interest but most importantly, she had all the facts as to why it was so important. Would recommend this to any visitor. Fun and informative.

    The 2-1/2 hour Bike Tour is ideal if you don't want to spend a lot of money, but want to see a lot of the city in a short time. We were only in Budapest for the weekend, so were only available on Sunday, and this tour was open and I was able to book it the day before. Because we left in the morning (Sept.22 and the weather had been warm, we didn't bring a jacket and were frozen for the first hour and a half. If you take this tour in September, bring a jacket or sweater! The tour guide was very nice and talkative and considerate of all 8 people in her tour. My only complaint was that I couldn't understand her English all the time. We stopped at many places and she explained many things. We rode to the Millennium Monument, around the park, and to the river, all in about 7 km. We made frequent stops and rode at a relaxing pace. It was a very enjoyable tour. If you stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, the tour begins right down the street from your hotel and you can walk there. I booked this on Viator and maybe because I booked less than 24 hours before the tour, they kindly refunded my husband's $20 when he woke up sick and had to cancel.

    Had a great tour guide, Balint. He did a fantastic job taking us safety thru the roads. We went to all the key spots int the Budapest. He also gave us some great history on both the landmarks we were at but the history of Hungary. Also added a lot of funny remarks on how things happened. When we come back we will do this again.

    Loved our bike tour with Monica, who as a local provided insight and historical review of the beautiful city of Budapest. We only wish we had taken the tour our first day in Budapest, as it would have given us a better "bucket list" of what we needed to do, and local foods to eat, before we were leaving the city. Highly recommend it, as a fun and efficient way to get an overview of both sides of the Danube in Budapest! Thanks, Monica!

    I was traveling alone, decided to take this tour and it was really great, such a nice way to explore Budapest. There were 5 of us on the tour, our guide Tomas was outstanding, so knowledgeable and with good sense of humour, really gave us a perfect overview of the city. Thank you Thomas! The bikes are very comfortable, the cake was delicious and I was lucky to catch sunny weather. Definitely recommend!

    I picked a rainy day to do the bike tour, but it was still a fabulous experience and this was definitely a great way to see Budapest. Also because of the rain, there were only 2 of us on the tour and that made it much easier to get around the city. Our guide Balint was friendly and knowledgeable, and he looked after us well.

    It was quite an easy ride, but the bike lanes in the city are quite narrow and you have to feel comfortable enough on the bike to veer around the traffic and tourists

    Perfect way to see the city and get a little exercise along the way. Virginia was lovely, funny, and made us all feel very welcome and safe out on the streets!

    We enjoyed our bike tour around Budapest. It was a good to get an understanding of Hungarian history and see some beautiful buildings and architecture. Our hostess was wonderful and chock full of history. We stopped at a famous restaurant for coffee and strudel at the end which was a nice touch after riding.
