This is an exciting and extensive tour, giving you the chance to explore Budapest and its sights and get a feel for its vibrant culture. Along the way, your experienced local guide will be on hand to tell you about what you’re seeing and talk in-depth about the city’s history and people.
All our Budapest e-bike tours begin with a quick introduction to the e-bikes and the city’s rules on bike safety and riding. Each person will have a practice on them until they feel comfortable and ready to go out and enjoy the sights of Budapest.
We’ll start the Budapest e-bike tour outside our office by the stunning Opera House, after which we’ll travel up Andrassy Avenue, one of the oldest and grandest streets in the city, which is today lined with some of its fanciest shopping stores. After hearing about the street’s unique history, we’ll arrive at our first historic site – Heroes’ Square.
Then it’s time to enjoy some greenery in the tranquil City Park. So here you’ll learn more about Hungary’s past and about some of the buildings to be found there, including Vajdahunyad Castle, which was built to show off Hungary’s architectural might for the World Fair of the early 1900’s.
The next part of the Budapest e-bike tour takes us back to the center of town where we travel past the impressive St Stephen’s Basilica and the nearby Freedom Square. Here stands one of the city’s few remaining Soviet memorials. Then onwards to admire the Hungarian Parliament which is one of the largest in Europe.
After this, it’s off to the lush Margit Island via the Margit Bridge. This is an entire park on an island and is a place to relax and listen to your guide recount stories from Budapest’s tumultuous past.
Across The Bridge To Buda
Next back on the bridge, we’ll cross the river to enjoy the sights of Buda up close. Arriving at our next stop of Batthyany Square, your guide will talk more about the Buda side of the city and how it’s developed over the years. Also we’ll take a break for a coffee and cake.
Once refreshed, we’ll make our way up the winding hill to reach the Buda Castle District. Luckily, thanks to your e-bikes, the trip up won’t be exhausting and your arrival at the top will be rewarded with magnificent panoramic views of the entire city. While there, you’ll discover some other famous sights including Matthias Church and the Fisherman’s Bastion.
Finally, as the Budapest e-bike tour draws to a close, we’ll return across the Danube to the Pest side by crossing on the spectacular Gellert Bridge. Along the way, we’ll travel past the Great Market Hall, before enjoying a relaxing ride down the Danube Promenade to finish back where we started.
Our e-bike tours run with small groups and generally do not have more than 15 participants. This makes them interactive and personal and gives you plenty of chances to ask questions and get to know your guide. You can also hit them up for local tips on where to go and what else to do.
