Antal was my guide. He has a degree in photography so very knowledgeable about camera settings and composition. Very personable and helpful to get me back to the bus station at the end of the trip so I didn't get lost. He pointed out interesting art deco buildings and reflection shots as well as all the historic buildings. Antal also told me a lot about Hungary's history, the good and the bad. A great 4 hour tour!

Do it! David, our guide is very friendly and has a lot of knowledge, not only about the places we visit but also about any other question you could have. The bikes are also very well maintained and pretty new. If you wish, you can also rent an ebike
