Great bikes, great guide, nice small group, an interesting route - more of an overview than anything detailed (though none the worse for that!)

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.

Bike tour of Budapest

We did one of these tours in Vienna in July and really enjoyed it so thought we'd do it again. It takes a few hours but you can see more than on a walking tour or on a bus. This one was also really good. Our guide Anna, had perfect English and was very knowledgeable. The added bonus about this one was that we stopped for cake and a drink (we had a beer) but this made it a little more expensive. Nevertheless it was worth it. We would recommend this tour.

Inexpensive way to see the city

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.

Fabulous bike tour of Budapest!

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!

Awesome way to experience Budapest!

Two couples did the private bike tour, approximately 4 hour easy ride around Budapest, with our tour guide Thomas. Great way to learn some basic history, see important sites, get a little exercise, cover more than possible on foot and have some fun doing it. Thomas was a fun and informative guide. Felt very safe - combination of bike paths on roads, sidewalks and separated bike paths.

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!
