Gabor is not only a friendly host, but can also convince with all sorts of interesting facts about Hungarian culture and cuisine. The offered dishes and drinks are very tasty and are attractively presented. Highly recommended as an entertaining activity.

Erica was our guide, she was very friendly and share wonderful information about the country and traditions. We were a party of 2 and had another couple and a single, so 5 people all together and she worked hard to be inclusive and hospitable to all.

My hostess was welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly and generously shared her knowledge and love of Hungarian food and wine. I learned where it is from and how it is made with samples of each. I left full and happy.

Great opportunity to immerse yourself in the city in a "short" time and get a great overview. It doesn't go into too much history, but that was fine with me.

Really enjoyed our bike tour. Andy was our tour guide, was informative and made us feel safe. Met some lovely people in our group. Was not a difficult bike ride.
