I always say bikes are the best way to see a new city and Budapest is no different. Our guide Adam was very knowledgeable about the city with all it's history and was able to answer any questions we could throw at him. The Buda side of the city has some steep hills so if you are unsure about your ability, go with the electric bike too

Great experience with Stephen. He was very knowledgeable about Hungarian history. I recommend his services. You won't regret it. We had a great time in Budapest.

ET was a great host and taught us lots about the city and it’s history. We covered 25km in total and had a very nice route. Free water included.

It was great fun; Daniel told us lots of interesting facts about the history of Budapest.

Super guide with humor. We saw a very large part of Budapest in 3 hours.
