We booked this to orientate ourselves at the beginning of our mini break, and to give us some background on Budapest. The tour was great and a very small ‘small group bike tour’ as we were the only two on it, which was great. The pace of the tour and the balance of cycling and stopping to chat about the area etc was perfect and we learnt a lot about Hungary and Budapest from our guide.

Fantastic trip with a very competent English guide Joel However, we would think that you might. took a break midway with some food and drink (at your own expense) or pointed out that there are no breaks so people can take any. a water with on the trip. Can highly recommend the second trip
