Booked this for our first afternoon in Budapest and it was an excellent - and fun - way to get our bearings. Our guide, Bart, was excellent and really accommodating. We were hungry before we took the tour but no time to get any food, so Bart took us straight to the Jewish Quarter to pick up a sandwich and coffees for our journey. It was a bright and sunny afternoon in early March so despite the sun it was pretty cold, but blankets were provided and we were wrapped up well so we were fine. We saw so much being in a “convertible” and outside rather than with a roof up; loved it! Bart made many stop offs for photos and viewings with guided info but to be honest he kept up a running commentary whilst driving so we really felt we learnt a lot about Budapest and it’s history throughout. He also booked us into Seasons Bistro for dinner and dropped us there at the end of our tour; great service from him and I’d highly recommend this private tour!
I ordered the Budapest: 2-Hour Private TukTuk Tour for my mum and aunt. We had two TukTuks due to the limited-two-person-space of the vehicle. Awesome! I could easily take photos of both my mum and aunt from the other TukTuk that I was riding on. The tour was approximately 2 hours. The road traffic was a bit heavy because the tour was between 16:00-18:00. Both drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. In my personal opinion, the TukTuk is very suitable for the elderly people. They can just sit and enjoy the ride all around Budapest - Buda and Pest. The view on top of the Liberty Statue was spectacular.
My mum and my aunt did it and they absolutely loved it. They were very happy with Peter who has been very kind and a very good guide. I was surprised though the Tuktuk didn't close completely, it was rainy and cold so they did suffer from the weather, I know the 1st of January but perhaps for winter you could consider a closed option?
The tuk tuk tour was a most unique and enjoyable way to see the highlights of Budapest. We have done many bus tours in the past and decided to try something a little different. We were not disappointed. We managed to cover a lot of ground in just over 2 hours and we saw other tourists watching us with envy.
So nice, we can only recommend this to anyone visiting Budapest. By the way be ready to be gently shake with the tuk-tuk
