Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

This is a brilliant way to see Budapest! The city's landmarks are fairly spread out, so sightseeing on foot can be quite challenging. On this tour, you'll get to see the top attractions with ease, and end with a hunger-busting bowl of Hungarian goulash!

What You Can Expect

Budapest Sightseeing Tour by Bike with Lunch

See the highlights of beautiful Budapest on a fun bike tour

Meet your guide near Deák Square in central Budapest and hop aboard your hybrid, 24-speed bicycle — a cross between a road bike and mountain bike. After a briefing, opt to put on a provided cycle helmet and set off behind your expert guide.

Your tour showcases Budapest’s key sights, and includes regular stops to take photos and hear about the landmarks from your expert guide. Plus, your route involves mostly riding on the flat, and sticks to cycle lanes, parks and car-free areas, so your explorations are very relaxed.

Cycle along Budapest’s loveliest avenue, UNESCO-listed Andrassy Avenue, and admire the State Opera House as your guide recounts the history of this handsome building.

Next, head for Heroes’ Square, perhaps Budapest’s best-known public space. Pose for photos at the Millennium Monument as you learn how it commemorates the Magyar chieftains who led their people to Hungary in the 9th century, and then pedal through leafy City Park to see Vajdahunyad Castle.

After taking in the ornate castle architecture, get a glimpse of the traditional thermal pools at the Széchenyi Baths, and then return to the city center, pausing outside St Stephen’s Basilica and the House of Terror museum, dedicated to Budapest’s suffering under the Nazis and Communist rule, on route.

Swing by the Hungarian Parliament Building and cross the Chain Bridge, absorbing the views of the Danube River to either side of you.

Then, meander around the hilly, cobbled lanes of the beautiful UNESCO-listed Buda Castle District. Admire the Baroque buildings and Matthias Church and listen avidly as your guide explains how the area was once one of medieval Europe’s main power bases.

Lastly, stop at an open-air restaurant set in a pretty, green park. Here, refuel with a hearty bowl of Hungarian goulash as you chat over your explorations.

Your tour then ends back at the start point.

Very informative guide and the bikes are very good. A great way to see the sights, although you need a fair level of fitness to climb the hill on Buda side. Lunch was delicious.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

I really enjoyed this tour because it took us to the right places in Budapest. I loved the scenery and the famous buildings we went to. I loved the goulash lunch at the park. The tour guide explained the history very well and was very kind. The weather was in the low 70's Fahrenheit so not much sweating except for uphill biking to the royal palace. No complaints and definitely recommend.

In spite of the unseasonal August rain and wind, Anna our guide, expertly led us through Budapest's streets and sights. It was a fantastic day, delivered with humour, energy and plenty of knowledge. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone with limited time and wanting an instant hit of the city and its past. Thank you Anna for a fabulous day

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Brilliant, guide was very knowledgable and the tour was tailored to our needs. Food good when we stopped for lunch. But be ready for the hilly Buda side of the tour. Great to see the areas to return to using a hop on bus pass.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Loved this tour! The best way to see Budapest!
Great tour guide. Good bikes. Other than riding up the Castle hill I didn't think it was too strenuous. I did however push my bike up half of the hill I'm only 33 and in medium shape.
Lunch was delicious. The atmosphere was just great. I'd definitely do it again and/or recommend it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

I really loved this tour. This is the best way to see all the popular sites in Budapest in less than 5 hours. Adam was simply amazing. He was really attentive and gave us many tips regarding restaurants, sites to visit, how to avoid tourist traps, etc. Adam speaks really good English although he is very humble about it. If you get Adam, ask him to affect the British and Italian accents. It was hilarious.

I loved this tour. We covered so much of Budapest and learned so much history that actually made our visit to the Budapest much more rich. We covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun. Plus we stopped for a traditional tasty lunch. Our tour guide Lazlo was fantastic.
