We had a wonderful ride through Budapest with our guide (a young lady whose name I cannot recall) doing a great job of describing the various sites throughout the tour. We learned much about the city and had a great ride as well. At first, we were a bit nervous about riding in the streets with all of the traffic, but the bike lanes worked well and the cars did not cross into them.We also appreciated the strudel which we had at our stop, about 2/3 through the ride.A great time which we would highly recommend to anyone coming to Budapest.

What a wonderful experience with a great tour guide, Petra. She's a history student so she's very knowledgeable of both the facts AND the myths surrounding the city of Budapest. Of course, it helps to have a group of tour members who share the spirit of adventure, and I think that the group I was with, did. We saw quite a bit, even when it rained, and were well taken care of. I would recommend this tour to the young and old alike, especially since the refreshments included yummy strudels! :

This was an awesome experience...and even though we had to wait for a flat tyre to be fixed....with the Red Bull air race going on - I do not know how he got through the crowds, we had a wonderful trip through Budapest in the best possible way. It is also not a difficult trip and the bicycles are in excellent condition for anybody who can cycle only a bit. Really, really to be recommended! Our guide was also very knowledgeable...and really good for answering all kinds of questions! I had a wonderful time and enjoyed this type of tour so much, if I can I do cycle trips where we go.

We had a very knowledgeable guide! He answered all of our questions, was very helpful, and friendly throughout the tour. It's a great tour to have an overview of all the hot-spots for tourists so that you can come back later. It can be noted that we could've stopped for pictures at any point as well. One of our favorite parts was the strudel tasting where we met some of the other group members. After all, there were only 8 of us.

This was an incredibly informative tour with an easy ride with many stops to catch your breath. You tour both sides of the river and learn a lot of Hungarian history. I also enjoyed speaking with our guide during the refreshment break about life in Budapest.
