Budapest Rickshaw tour with private dedicated rickshaw driver-guide in English and a funicular ride in the Buda Castle
Duration: 4 hours
Get to discover Budapest the way kings would. Your private English-speaking rickshaw driver and tour-guide will take you around Budapest in 4 hours and will show you all the highlights of Pest and the Buda castle district.
The tour starts at the doorstep of your hotel, where you meet your English-speaking rickshaw driver and guide. The tour will first take you to the city-center of Pest, where you pass in front of the St Steven’s Basilica, roll around the Liberty Square to have a glimpse at the US Embassy and the Liberation Monument. Your three-wheeled human propelled vehicle will then move to the square of the "3 Parliaments" where you will have the opportunity to observe Hungary’s largest building, the neo-gothic Hungarian Parliament House.
Crossing the river Danube on the Chain Bridge, your rickshaw will stop at the foot of the castle funicular. The funicular ticket is included in the tour price. The funicular climb is one of the most exciting scenic experiences of the Hungarian capital. Your driver will meet you at the top station of the funicular and continue the tour inside the castle. The Royal Palace offers delightful insights to the Austro-Hungarian lifestyle of the 19th century. Leaving the palace, you will discover the medieval city-center of the Buda Castle: the Matthias Church, the Fishermen’s’ Bastions, the St Trinity monument and so on…
After the pleasant descent from the castle hill, your vehicle will head back to the Pest side, and cycle along the elegant Andrassy Avenue, the Champs Élysées of Budapest, passing the Opera, all the way to the Heroes’ Square and the Millenary Monument where we have a closer look at the statues representing the most outstanding figures of the Hungarian history.
The tour ends in downtown Pest, at the infamous Váci Street, the main pedestrian street of Budapest, or at your hotel.
