Great way to see the city.

Great way to see the city and it's sites. But make sure you're comfortable riding motorcycles(Even if they're just scooters) 2 people on our tour had never riden, let alone in another country, in their traffic. They both had minor crashes, and one needed to go to hospital as her knee was banged up fairly bad. Have a test ride first, if you're not comfortable. "Don't do it".

Tolle Stadtrundfahrt

Die Rollertour ist sehr empfehlenswert, auch für diejenige, die noch nie mit einem Roller gefahren sind. Der Tourleiter ist super freundlich erklärt alles ganz deutlich(auf Englisch). Nach den ersten 10-15 Minuten, die man braucht, um sich an den Roller anzugewöhnen, geht es ganz leicht. Man besucht alle wichtigen Orte in Budapest.

Tolles Erlebnis!

Die Leute machen alles richtig! Sie sind super freundlich, haben schöne Touren ausgearbeitet und gewährleisten sichere Fahrten auf modernen China-Rollern. Unterwegs erfährt man über Funk alles Wichtige über die Stadt. Etwas Übung im Umgang mit motorisierten Zweirädern sollte man haben, dann jedoch lernt man die Stadt auf eine ganz besonders schöne Art kennen! Absolut empfehlenswert!
