The tour begins on Andrassy Boulevard at the Opera House with a ride up to Heroes' Square and City Park along the tree-lined boulevard. Here we learn about Hungarian history and culture before biking through the park to Vajdahunyad Castle complex built to display Hungarian architecture forms for the 1896 World Expo and Szechenyi Bath House (we'll peek inside if it's open). Next, we ride back to the city center down to the St. Stephen's Basilica named after the first Hungarian king.
After seeing this beautiful church and square we'll ride to Liberty Square for a look at the last Soviet statue in the city before riding on to Parliament. From the riverbank, you can enjoy the view of UNESCO World Heritage sights including the Castle District: Matthias Church, Royal Palace and the Fisherman's Bastion. Here, your guide will explain in more detail what you're seeing. Next, we cross Margit Bridge over to 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, before turning back onto Andrassy Boulevard and checking out the Opera House before finishing the tour.
Our bike tours are small and generally do not have more than 15 participants, making them interactive and personal and giving you plenty of chances to ask questions.
