You Budapest Night Tour will take a more relaxed and very flat ride and cover more areas along the bank of the Danube river. You’ll cruise along Andrassy Boulevard before taking in the magnificent St. Stephen’s Basilica, Liberty Square and the Parliament. Then, you'll cross the Margit Bridge over to the Buda side. 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 (a peek inside when open), and passing by the National Museum and the Great Synagogue before turning back onto Andrassy Boulevard and checking out the Opera House before finishing the tour. All of the sights will be seen at dusk and some will even be illuminated, giving great photo opportunities during the stops.

Our bike tour was absolutely fantastic! The tour guide was brilliant, his English name was Joseph. He was really enthusiastic and gave us great information on the history of the city. We saw lots of brilliant places especially the palace! You have to do this tour in Budapest it is so worth it!!
