Full description
Ride along Budapest's streets by bicycle on an innovative and entertaining jaunt around the Hungarian capital.

Cycle along the banks of the River Danube and cruise along Andrassy Avenue; a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Check out the magnificent St. Stephen's Basilica. View Liberty Square and the Parliament building, then cross the Margit Bridge to Buda on the river's west bank.

Learn about the history of Buda, a site of several sieges and conquests during the Ottoman expansion which almost decimated the city's population completely. Pass the Széchenyi Chain Bridge and the Elisabeth Bridge, which both hold fascinating stories of their own!

Zip over to Clark Adam Square, the famous Hotel Gellért, and the Rudas Thermal Baths. Then cycle to Pest across Elisabeth Bridge and discover Pest downtown.

The tour concludes back at Andrassy Avenue, where you can visit the majestic 19th-century Hungarian State Opera House; one of the era's most celebrated examples of European architecture. This 3-hour cycle tour is an excellent way to get a taste of the Hungarian capital's highlights before venturing out on your own to explore.
