The Segway Tour Budapest starts with a 10-minute orientation session to get everyone comfortable with the ways of the Segways. Small groups will be formed to give space for questions and interaction between the group and the guide.
Once everyone is ready to roll, it’s time to conquer Budapest! Discover Hungarian history and culture as you ride like a boss around and about Budapest. This gorgeous city is ranked as “ the world’s second best city” by Condé Nast Traveler and “Europe’s 7th most idyllic place to live” by Forbes.
The Tour 1 journey starts with a wonderful orientation of inner Pest and views of Danube you will never forget. See the whole City Centre sites including the Opera House, Gresham Palace, and Vörösmarty, Széchenyi, and Liberty Squares. Continue the Danube Promenade extending from the Chain Bridge to St. Stephen’s Basilica. Along the way lies the Parliament, that is actually the third largest in the world. Look out for “The Little Princess” statue, a symbol of Budapest, by László Marton. He was inspired by his daughter at the age of 6, playing in the garden in a princess-like garments and a crown on her head. That was the moment he captured and made eternal after finding the perfect spot for it- by the Danube. Another of many other wonderful statutes you will spot on this tour is one of William Shakespeare- a replica of the original statue in Ballarat, Australia.
Tour 2 includes more of these must-see Hungarian attractions like the Heroe’s Square, Art Hall, Museum of Fine Arts, City Park Boating Lake and Ice Rink. See the Vajdahunyad Castle, a fantasy pastiche showcasing the architectural evolution through centuries and styles in Hungary. The rest of the tour includes the Exhibitions of Hungarian Agricultural Museum, the Statue of Anonimus, Koós Károly lane, and Széchenyi Thermal Bath and Swimming Pool- all the way to the best last, the Capital Circus of Budapest. If you feel comfortable enough with the Segway by now, show off some skills, and you just might scratch “Join The Circus” off of your Bucket List.
