What people are saying about Szabadsag Square

We booked this to orientate ourselves at the beginning of our mini break, and to give us some background on Budapest. The tour was great and a very small ‘small group bike tour’ as we were the only two on it, which was great. The pace of the tour and the balance of cycling and stopping to chat about the area etc was perfect and we learnt a lot about Hungary and Budapest from our guide.

Brilliant tour, very relaxed and informative. Great for inexperienced cyclists, we felt safe riding around the city and our tour told us so many historical facts that were so interesting. Definitely recommended

Miklos has an encyclopedic knowledge of the players and events of Hungarian communism. He's a teacher, complete with a handout at the end. This tour is more than a Cliffs Notes version and we learned a lot.

Really recommendable! The Guy who drove with us was very friendly! Thanks for this cool adventure!

excellent way to discover the city th guide was very proffesional and nice we had a lot of fun
