"This is an absolute must! I'd not ridden a scooter in some time and was a little apprehensive about doing so in a busy city. HOWEVER, this was SO much fun. Our guide was brilliant from start to finish - he was so knowledgeable, friendly and funny. It really felt more like a friend wasshowing you all the best places of their home town. Add this to your to-do list and you won't regret it. "

This was by far the most memorable tour of 3 cities

This was by far the most memorable tour of 3 cities

"We traveled to Prague, Munich and Budapest and took a lot of tours and I truly have to say that this was by far the best tour we took. I hadn't been on a scooter in 30 years but it was very easy to pick up again. Never once did we feel unsafe despite the traffic. The scenery and landscape were incredible. Andras is an enigma having traveled all over the world and speaks several languages. We really enjoyed our conversations with him. Lunch was fabulous and the view was amazing. Highly recommend."
