Fun, informative and highly recommended tour of Budapest. Great route and the guide was really knowledgeable. Only negative was bikes have no suspension, so ride was a bit hard on some of the rough road surfaces.

Oliver was a great guide. He gave us a great insight into the history of Budapest and was very kind and considerate to all our group. We would recommend this company and Oliver to anyone coming to Budapest
