About the Supplier

Discover Central Europe is formed by the 'European Quartet' of Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, and offer the best experiences in the four countries, promoted by the local tourism boards. Their tours and activities aim to show tourists the distinct architecture, art, religion, folklore and traditions or landscape that each country is known for.

Here is the plan...

Tour begins on Andrassy Boulevard and at the Opera house (outside) and then a ride up to the Heroes’ square and city park along the tree-lined boulevard. Here you learn about the Hungarian history and culture before biking through the park to the Vajdahunyad Castle (outside) complex built to display the Hungarian architecture forms for the 1896 world Expo and Szechenyi bathhouse (peek inside if open).

Next, you will ride back to the city centre down to the St. Stephen’s Basilica named after the first Hungarian king (peek inside if open). After visiting the beautiful church and square and you ride to Liberty sq. for a picture of the last Soviet remembrance then on to the Parliament (outside), the second-largest in Europe with its huge neo-gothic façade. 

Next, you will ride across the mighty Danube river over the first and oldest bridge, the Chain bridge. 

Now at the foot of the Buda Castle, our guide will explain the visible sights and stories surrounding them before our leisurely ride up the old road to the base of the Royal Palace (outside). A break here gives the UNESCO World Heritage lookout panorama view where you can capture all the best views of the city. After this break, we ride through the old castle district streets to the Matthias Church (outside) and Fisherman’s Bastion (outside). 

Next is the reward we all rode up for, the ride down! On the back road of the castle we coast down in comfort into the green park of the Taban and then back over to the Pest side slowly making our way back to Opera metro stop (Vi. Dist.). to end the tour.
