I thoroughly enjoyed the sightseeing tour around Budapest - Daniel was friendly, informative and provided really interesting insights and stories into different sites and monuments. I was travelling solo but was instantly made to feel at ease - bonus points for great conversation throughout the drive! Daniel went above and beyond my expectations of this tour - I’d fully recommend for all who are only visiting Budapest for a shorter period of time but would like an intimate look at the city. Daniel also kindly provided a list of personalised recommendations for me which was very kind (and spot on!). Thank you again for making this trip very memorable.

Beka our guide was great and knowledgeable with an excellent sense of humor. We had a really enjoyable morning on the e-bikes and it’s a super way to see many of the main sites from outside, covering a lot of ground if you only have a short time in the city. Wear layers as we went end of March and it was very cold wind. Highly recommend.

We loved it! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the city and history, and kind and patient (with my lack of skills). We saw everything we could’ve hoped to see and more! I highly recommend this e-bike tour.

He does really good poses, knows the city, and is very patient. I can't wait to receive the photos.

Wonderful and we really enjoyed our guide Baliant.
