Best bike tour ever!!!

If you have anything hesitations booking this Bike tour, don’t. This bike tour is a must! Our guide Balint was extremely informative and answered any questions we had. We traveled swiftly by bike to the major tourist attractions, stopping at each to chat about the meaning and history behind it. The 4 hours flew by and we had a lovely strudel and coffee break towards the end. Balint made sure we got the freshest strudels! I would recommend this bike tour to any friend traveling to Budapest.
