You don’t need a license.
The MonsteRoller e-scooters don’t require a driver’s license and they are allowed on Budapest’s bike paths as well, which we use on all of our tours where available. While the road up to the Citadel includes some low-traffic roads, rest assured as you’ll be accompanied by our experienced tour guide who will lead the way.
Let’s ride! But how?
The tour starts with a brief training session where we show you how to use and ride the MonsteRoller e-scooter. However, if you don’t have any experience with bikes or e-scooters, we recommend to arrive a bit earlier to make sure you have enough practice time, or even take a self-guided ride beforehand to make sure that you can ride confidently and we can set out swiftly to explore the sights. We’ll guide you through the process, ensuring you’re comfortable before we set off. Ready to hop on and ride up to see the views from the Citadel?
Zip up to see the Citadel in just an hour
One hour might seem short for a tour, but you’ll be surprised how much we can see riding on e-scooters! Our Citadel tour leads through Gellért Hill’s most remarkable sights in just 60 minutes and your friendly guide will share the best stories from the area’s history. Join us for a fun and quick e-scooter tour where you’ll discover the best views of Budapest in the most fun way, and which will probably have you coming back for more!
It’s a small group at the top
We designed our e-scooter tours for small groups, ensuring a cozy and friendly experience. Since it’s a one-hour ride, it’s important for us to keep it small to ensure that the time spent riding and seeing the sights are well balanced. Your tour guides are eager to share their love and knowledge of Budapest and we want to make sure you have time to ask questions while you explore the best of Gellért Hill and the Citadel.

What Our Guests Are Saying
Citadel Tour - E-Scooters
My wife and I had a great time on the E-Scooters on the Citadel tour, our guide Balint was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the tour and took us to some great spots! Would highly recommend doing this, great way to see the city.
Must-do when in Budapest!
We did the tour on 17th May and had the (bad) luck that the weather wasn’t really good. We started the tour dry but when we were at the top of the Citadel it started raining really bad but the view we got was indescribable! Bianca was our our guide and she was really great! I have laughed and enjoyed the ride really much. It’s easy to ride the bikes and it’s really a must-do when you are in Budapest!
t was a super fun way to get introduced to the e-bikes as well as enjoy the great lookout point. Highly recommend it if you don’t want to walk there and wanted to try something different but at the same time learn some history!! Bianca was a great host and made us fee comfortable and safe!
Such a lovely experience- the team were friendly and welcoming, and very knowledgable guides! We had so much fun and saw some great views. None of the group wanted the experience to end!
Had a great tour with Attila! It was freezing cold but he made the trek enjoyable. Got to see the city from above and learn more about the lengthy history of Budapest. The scooters were fun and we met some amazing people on our trip. Perfect 1-hour length tour.
Attila was an amazing experience host. Attila gave us a quick tutorial on how to operate the vehicle at an open area. It wasn’t as hard as we thought! Then off we went. Attila gave us an informative tour to interesting places, recommended the best thermal baths and restaurants and food to try. He was also super kind to help us take photos and videos throughout the tour. It was just the two of us in the session so it was like a private tour. We both had a great time despite the rain and the cold.
