Join us as we cycle through the streets of Budapest and then along the Danube to the Medieval artistic town of Szentendre. Your tour will begin in the heart of Budapest and you'll learn about some of the key sights before we begin our leisurely ride. We'll start the tour at Liberty Square where you'll gain an insight into Budapest's more recent history, before checking out the spectacular Parliament building and heading to the river. Crossing Margaret Bridge, you'll get to cycle through the lush green Margaret Island before arriving in Buda to start the journey to Szentendre through Obuda's (Old Buda) charming town center.
Your cycle to Szentendre follows the Danube and passes through fields, forests and beaches 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.
At the end of the tour, we'll head to Szentendre Pier to board the boat back to Budapest. You can enjoy a relaxing cruise along the Danube with spectacular views, giving you a whole different perspective of this part of the world.
A great and varied day awaits you - top Budapest sights, a cycle ride along the countryside that lines the river, and exploration of Szentendre and a cruise back to the city along the Danube.
