Great experience biking through Budapest. Tour was on-time from start to finish. Timing was perfect to even catch the music show at Margaret island. Tour guide, ET, was very knowledgeable about city history and provided recommendations for transportation, food, places to visit and party. Overall good experience and great customer service. Highly recommended. (Thanks ET for the nice tour)

The best experience to enjoy in Budapest. The tour guide (Etele) was so friendly and funny that made the tour to be so enjoyable. Generally it is a nice and an alternative way to see Budapest. Don't miss it!

This was a great way to get your bearings in Budapest. On a cold day, there were only two of us on the ride so we had tour guide, Andy, to ourselves. Highly recommended.

Biking was a pleasant way to experience otherwise quite distant sights of the city. The guide ET was friendly and well informed, the ride safe and refreshing.

Our guide was very passionate about the history of Budapest.
