Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin your tour in central Budapest. Once you’ve received a brief safety overview, head out with your guide through the city. The selected route for the tour travels through bike lanes and mainly flat terrain for a leisurely sightseeing experience.

Pass the neo-Renaissance Opera House as you cruise down Andrassy Avenue, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After some explanation from your guide, steer your wheels toward Heroes’ Square, well known for its iconic statues of the seven Magyar chieftains. Nearby lies the foliage of Budapest’s City Park, where you can find Vajdahunyad Castle.

From there, bike toward the cupola of the Széchenyi Baths, built in 1908. Take a peek at the thermal pools before heading back toward central Budapest. Gaze up at the towering structure of St. Stephen’s Basilica and take a brief stop in front of the House of Terror, a museum documenting Hungarian history during World War II and Communist rule.

Then, as you make your way across the Chain Bridge, pass the stunning architecture of the Parliament Building, home to the Holy Crown of Hungary.

Head up the Buda Castle District, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, while your guide discusses the historical and political importance of the area.

Then pedal to an open-air restaurant to rest your legs and reward your belly with a hot bowl of Hungarian goulash, before returning to your original departure point.

It was a chilly day but biking made it a lot easier to deal with. Our guide Anna was outstanding. She was super sweet and knowledgeable about Budapest and all the landmarks we saw. She took pictures of us when we asked, we crossed bridges and learned all about the history of the country. Not to mention the Ghoulash was delicious!! The marketplace we ate at was phenomenal! Would definitely do it again!!

The best of Budapest by bike
Ronald T

If sitting on a bus watching the sites pass bye is not your thing, then this bike tour is for you. It covers most of the major sites in Pest and the island with a brief swing across the river to Buda. The tour provided a good background of not just the city but also the country, it's history and development through the centuries. Our guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and happy to answer all of our many questions. We were never rushed and were able to spend as much time as we needed at each stop, to the point that we went way beyond the allotted time. One word of caution, however. Budapest is a very big city (I think about 2 million). Even though it has a remarkable amount of walking and biking infrastructure (a lot more than many US cities) there is a lot of traffic. If you are not comfortable negotiating crowded walk ways or busy streets, even if there is a designated bike lane, then you might want to think twice about a bike tour in Budapest. If you are comfortable on a bike and up for an adventure, this bike tour is a great way to see this city. I would highly recommend it.

We joined this trip 2 adults and our teenage daughter. It was the most fantastic way to see Budapest. We had the best guide, many great stories, and he was very nice and funny at the same time. At lunch we had good traditional Hungarian gullasch soup. We were biking around 25 km in 5 1/2 hour, no hurry. Can absolutely be recommended!

This is a great way to get your bearings around old town Budapest. The history lesson is necessary if you want to understand Hungarians. The ride was super easy. The personal anecdotes added by Anna were heartfelt and enriched the experience.

Budapest tour with goulash
Sylvia M
, Jul 2019
Great bike tour with Anna who is very knowledgeable about Budapest and its history, we were in a good little of group of 9 who all enjoyed learning about Budapest history and culture. Anna made sure we were all happy and safe with our bikes and helmets which were all good and sturdy. She led us very well through the city centre in bike lanes (much wider than UK ones) and the traffic seemed very bike friendly towards us. We stopped for lunch in a very nice restaurant in a park and the bowl of goulash was delicious, pity the waitress didn’t have time to get us a drink, luckily Anna gave us all water. All in all a great day, enjoyed by a couple in their sixties who haven’t been on a bike for about a year and we didn’t even ache the next day which shows the seats were comfie!

The guide was was entertaining and friendly. He provided some insightful information. During the 4 hour tour we went to 6 stops. I was surprised there weren't more sights covered, but perhaps there aren't that many sights to visit via bike in Munich.
