An excellent way to experience Budapest! I designed this tour the same way I guide my own visitors around my adopted city: to cover many of Budapest most popular sights, while also expose you to some lesser known neighborhoods and places that are popular with locals. Along the way I will give you historic information, as well as share my favorite facts about the city, its people and life in Hungary. The tour is limited to max 6 people to keep it more intimate. 1. See many of Budapest’s most famous sights, including the Opera, St. Stephen’s Basilica, Hungarian Parliament, Great Market, National Museum, ruin-pub district, Synagogue, Andrássy Blvd., and Terror House museum 2. Ride across beautiful Margaret Island and along the Danube past the Chain bridge, Buda castle and Gellért hill 3. Ride comfortably on an 8-speed trekking bike with front suspension 4. Visit some off-the-beaten-path places and neighborhoods, including one of my favorite squares and neighborhood markets, Hunyadi tér 5. Enjoy a cold drink (beer etc,) by the Danube, and a pastry in a local market (we will make two rest stops)
I moved to Budapest six years ago on a 3-year assignment, but fell in love with the city and stayed. After many years in the corporate business world I decided to take some time to pursue other interests and to spend more time doing things I am passionate about, such as showing people around my adopted home town.
pastry & espresso at local market
Beer, wine or soda or local favorite summer drink Fröccs (I will explain)
21-speed trekking bike bike helmet (optional but strongly recommended)
The tour covers large parts of downtown Budapest, a total of roughly 17km/11miles over flat terrain, but through some busy city streets. Along the way we will make two rest stops: we'll cool off with a cold beer or soda on the shores of the Danube, and we will end the tour with a visit to a local market, where we will recharge with a drink or coffee break.
