Reviews for Vienna to Budapest cycle ride, self guided


review 12 Aug 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The lovely town of Gyor and the family hotel we stayed in there. The beautiful architecture in Budapest.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Read the instructions through before you start - in some cases the extension detour miles are written after youíve reached your destination. Ferries are easy to use, but plan your cycling to arrive in good time - they mainly operate hourly. Learn a few words in the language - they really appreciate the effort . Cafes are few and far between ..... pack yourself a snack and drink and stop where you like the view.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

To some extent with family run hotels - apart from the start where we were put in to a big chain hotel! The route is quite remote for a lot of the day without cafes - so hard to help the local economy, other than at the start or finish of your day. If you find a coffee on route itís often served in a takeaway cup - so not ideal. We only used bike and local transport for getting around during our holiday - but we did fly there!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

A good introduction to self guided holidays. Route descriptions were thorough and accurate. Lots of bikers on the route - of all levels. Mostly on designated cycling paths. For us, we usually prefer something a bit more off the beaten track . Although this is following the Danube, the route is quite often on the dam wall which often doesnít have a view of the Danube!
