Departs at 5pm (July to August)
You Budapest Night Tour will take a more relaxed and very flat ride and cover more areas along the bank of the Danube river. You’ll cruise along Andrassy Boulevard before taking in the magnificent St. Stephen’s Basilica, Liberty Square and the Parliament. Then, you'll cross the Margit Bridge over to the Buda side. Here you’ll ride along the banks of the Danube taking in the Chain Bridge, Clark Adam Square, Elizabeth Bridge, Rudas baths and the famous Gellert hotel and baths before crossing the Liberty Bridge back over to the Pest side to see the Grand Market Hall (a peek inside when open), and passing by the National Museum and the Great Synagogue before turning back onto Andrassy Boulevard and checking out the Opera House before finishing the tour. All of the sights will be seen at dusk and some will even be illuminated, giving great photo opportunities during the stops.

An excellent way of seeing the sights. Thought I may have had problems as I hadn't ridden a bike for many, many years, however, no problems at all! Thoroughly enjoyable! Would certainly do it again.

This was a fabulous tour, the it ended up just being myself and my mum... (ideal!) and our fantastic guide who was informative, really great fun, and we had four hours of tremendous culture, history, exercise and banter! My mum was really worried not having ridden a bike for a while and the fact she has arthritic knees, but she had need not worry! The free drink and hungry pastry tasting was amazing...we ended up with 6 pastries and they were awesome! We had such a great day, and i think cycling (i am slightly biased being a cycle instructor/coach!!!) is the only and best way to really experience a city. The bikes were of good standard and the city geared towards cyclists so really in a nutshell, you would be silly not to do this tour, go on, you will NOT regret it!!! (treat yourself to a authentic thai massage after! boy that will blow your socks off!!!)
