Full Tour Description
Duration: approx. 8-9 hours
Join us as we cycle through the streets of Budapest and then along the Danube to the Medieval and wonderfully artistic town of Szentendre.
Your tour will begin in the heart of Budapest where your guide will tell you all about some of the sights you’ll be seeing as you ride. We’ll start our leisurely ride at Liberty Square where you’ll learn about Budapest’s more recent history, before checking out the spectacular Parliament building and heading to the river.
Crossing the Margaret Bridge you’ll get the chance to cycle through the lush green Margaret Island before arriving in Buda to start the journey to Szentendre through Obuda – one of the most charming neighborhoods in the city.
Your cycle to Szentendre follows the Danube and passes through fields, forests and beaches – a real taste of nature – and we’ll have a short break in one of the several bars and cafes along the way before continuing our ride.
Arriving in the quaint Medieval town of Szentendre, we’ll park the bikes before we take a relaxing stroll through the cobblestone streets. Your guide will show you the best that Szentendre has to offer and will also stop so you can try a classic Hungarian snack food – langos! After our break, you’ll have a chance to self-explore the artistic shops, galleries and churches of the town center.
As our tour of Szentendre draws to an end, we’ll make our way to the pier to board the boat back to Budapest. After a long day of walking and cycling, this is your chance to enjoy a relaxing cruise along the Danube with spectacular views well worth a few photos.
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 your guide questions. You can also get tips from them on what else to see and do while you’re in the city.
