Full description
Explore Budapest, the so-called "Paris of the East," on a comfortable on a brand new e-bike from the leading German manufacturer, Kalkhoff. First up, take in the full-length of the Andrássy Avenue passing the Hungarian State Opera House, the House of Terror, and arrive at Heroes' Square. You can be sure your guide will have all the stories along the way. From Heroes' Square, continue into City Park where you’ll be surprised by a fake castle and the Széchenyi Thermal Bath, the largest and most popular in the city. The trip continues with highlights like the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music and the Jewish Quarter before diving into the downtown area.  See and learn about St. Stephen's Basilica, largest church in Budapest. In the heart of the financial district lies Liberty Square with a bloody history and a disputed Holocaust memorial. From here it is not far to the Hungarian Parliament Building, a landmark in Budapest. Next, reach the Danube River with a breathtaking view on the Buda side of the city. Cross Margaret Bridge using a nice bicycle lane and arrive at Buda and EuroVelo 6, an international bicycle way along the Danube River. Ride down to Batthyany-Square, take a picture of the parliament across the river, and continue to Széchenyi Chain Bridge, from where you will start to climb Castle Hill. Here the electric support of your bike will show its strength. Admire Matthias Church and the Fisherman's Bastion before returning to the Shoes on the Danube Bank and passing the historical Rudas Bath. At Gellért Hill, see the famous Gellért Thermal Bath cross back to Pest via Liberty Bridge, the most popular bridge in Budapest. Do not miss the Central Market Hall and the Hungarian National Museum before you reach the Dohány Street Synagogue, the final stop on the tour before you return to the starting point of the tour.

Despite the cold, we both agreed that we have had a great tour around Budapest. Really informative tour of the city center with many stops along the way at the various sights. The bike ride itself took place at a very calm pace, which everyone can join in - both young and old. Nice to have a stop in the middle of the trip where we could go inside and get warm again (we bought hot cocoa - so that helped, no doubt). Really a good way to experience the city when cycling around it - highly recommended.

Perfect tour. Our first day in Budapest and we got a great impression of this beautiful city! Our guide Thomas gave us a lot of input and explained the history of the city in such a way that it was fun to listen. The bikes are absolutely fine and we can recommend everyone to get to know Budapest in this way!

By mistake we were assigned to an English group. In time but still recognized we were offered two more appointments! When we showed up, we were actually alone, my husband and I! Thomas (owner and from Vienna) our Gide was super nice and you can see that he really enjoys his business and does everything with passion! The tour lasted almost 4 hours. We enjoyed it very much, thank you Thomas for this, by chance, exclusive tour! All the best for Suzana & Dirk from Baden Württemberg
