I booked the day time experience for me and my friend and we loved it! It was such a fun time and by far one of our favorite activities in Budapest. The scooter’s were a bit scary at first but as we went through the tour we got the hang of them. We had T as our tour guide she was wonderful! Along with the rest of the tour crew.

The best way to explore the city if you are short on time.Fortunately I was the only one on the tour and it was like a private tour.Lots of time spent at different locations and the guide even took photos of me.Definitely recommend this. Just be careful with the scooter handling though it can get a bit tricky.

Absolutely brilliant experience and the guides were absolutely amazing! A couple of us struggled to drive the scooter and they accommodated us by giving us double scooters and extra guides! Jaad and Mozart were absolutely lovely such a beautiful city and best thing of our day!

Firstly, Tunde, my guide was an absolute gem. She was delightful, great company and was truly interested in what you had to say. She was very knowledgeable and made my 2 hours go by so quick. Could've easily spent my whole day hanging out with Tunde and learning about Budapest

City tour on e-scooter was an excellent way to do a quick “look-see” of interesting sites & cover more distances while having fun on the scooter. Luna Tour’s guide was fantastic - if you think you could handle the e-scooter then definitely give it a go… enjoy…
