Budapest’s original and most renowned biking tour is an innovative, entertaining, easy and relaxing way to see mostly all the city sights in a more intimate way through our grand roads and bike pathways.  An excellent way to first get orientated with the city and its history before heading out on your own to explore.

Our day time tour begins on Andrassy Boulevard and at the Opera house and then a ride up to the Heroes’ Square and City Park along the tree lined boulevard.  Here we learn about the Hungarian history and culture before biking through the park to the Vajdahunyad Castle  complex built to display the Hungarian architecture forms for the 1896 world Expo and Szechenyi bath house (peek inside if open).  Next we ride back to the city centre down to the St. Stephen’s Basilica.

After seeing the beautiful church and square and we ride to Liberty square for a look at the last Soviet remembrance then on to the Parliament. From the riverbank you can enjoy the UNESCO World Heritage beautiful panorama over the Castle District: Matthias Church, Royal Palace and the Fisherman’s Bastion where our guide will explain in details about the sights. We are crossing the Margit Bridge over to the Buda side. Here you’ll ride along the banks of the Danube taking in the Chain Bridge, Clark Adam Square, Elizabeth Bridge, Rudas baths and the famous Gellert hotel and baths before crossing the Liberty Bridge back over to the Pest side to see the Grand Market Hall, and passing by the National Museum and the Great Synagogue before turning back onto Andrassy Boulevard and checking out the Opera House before finishing the tour.

A coffee and traditional Hungarian pastry break is included in the daytime tour.
