“Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities by night I have ever seen, so being able to see a lot of the sights by night with a very knowledgeable tour guide is a fantastic idea. The cruise on the Danube, (and the free champagne!), just topped everything off. Seeing the castle district at night, from the deck of a boat on the Danube - indescribable.”

Budapest's sights are spread out, so getting around by bike is the best way to see the city. Peddling along bike paths is easier than walking and much more fun plus you'll visit places that sightseeing buses can never access.
While you cycle, your professional guide will fill you in on the city's history to help you gain a greater understanding of Budapest and Hungary.This is the easiest and most entertaining way to see Budapest and you also have the chance to sample typical Hungarian food at the end of the tour!
“This tour was fantastic! Since Budapest is a large city split by a river, it was an excellent way to see it all! Akos, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable with the history of Hungary and Budapest. This tour was one of our favorite memories in Budapest!”
