Samuel was our guide and he was amazing! We absolutely loved the tour. It was a great way to see Budapest. We would have missed out on so much if we had tried to see everything on our own! Samuel was a great guide and gave us some great recommendations for what to do with the rest of our trip! This tour makes us want to book bike tours on every one of our trips going forward. Could not recommend enough!
