This has been one of my favorite tours to date. Our guide, Tibi, went above and beyond to make our experience truly memorable. We booked the experience last minute since we didn’t know if we would have time to make it to Budapest. We were surprised to be able to be accommodated and Tibi made sure we used time efficiently to visit the most important sites. It was also a great cultural immersion course as he explained a lot of history behind monuments, buildings and areas. We were supposed to walk most of the time, however, he ended combing walking and drinking around, which helped reach a lot of Budapest! He went beyond and even took us back to Train station and made sure we didn’t missed our train. Tibi is friendly, knowledgeable and kind and you can tell he really love what he does, he even presented us with thoughtful gifts at the beginning of tour which set the tone for the rest of it and made it for a great souvenir of amazing Budapest! Amazing experience that we will never forget.

We loved it! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the city and history, and kind and patient (with my lack of skills). We saw everything we could’ve hoped to see and more! I highly recommend this e-bike tour.

Romina was the best tour guide ever!! Amazing experience she is warm, professional and super knowledgeable. Will recommend her 100%
