Full Tour Description

Join us on Budapest’s most popular bike tour for an innovative, entertaining and relaxing trip to see the city’s most interesting sights and learn a little something about them and their history with one of our expert guides. You’ll get to know the city in a more intimate way and get the chance to cycle down grand boulevards and charming side streets – giving you plenty of ideas for places to check out on your own later.

We start the ride at the Opera House, one of Budapest’s most stunning pieces of architecture. From here, you’ll ride up the architecturally beautiful Andrassy Boulevard, one of the longest and grandest roads in the city, eventually arriving at Hero’s Square and City Park for your first history lesson.

Next, we’ll go biking through the park to the Vajdahunyad Castle complex – built to display the Hungarian architecture forms for the 1896 World Expo – and then to Szechenyi bath house (peek inside if open). Next, we ride back to the city centre down to the St. Stephen’s Basilica named after the first Hungarian king.

Next, we’ll glide over to Liberty Square to check out one of the last remaining Soviet relics in the city, before moving on to take the view – and no doubt some photos, of Budapest’s truly spectacular parliament building. Here you’ll also get to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the Castle District and the buildings which make it up including Matthias Church, the Royal Palace and Fisherman’s Bastion. Meanwhile, your guide will tell you all about the history of these stunning buildings.

On the final part of the tour, we’ll cross over the Margit Bridge and check out the Buda side of the city. Here you’ll ride along the banks of the Danube taking in the Chain Bridge, Clark Adam Square, Elizabeth Bridge, Rudas Baths and the famous Gellert Hotel and Baths before crossing the Liberty Bridge back over to the Pest side to see the Grand Market Hall, and passing by the National Museum and the Great Synagogue before turning back onto Andrassy Boulevard and returning to the Opera House to finish off the tour.

A stop for a coffee and traditional Hungarian pastry is included in the daytime tour.
