Reviews of Our E-Scooter Budapest City Tours
Don’t even think about it just book this experience! It was so much fun and the absolute highlight of our trip. We did it on the first day of our holiday and was a great way to familiarise ourselves with the city and see loads of sites, maximising our time. Attila was the perfect guide, it was the perfect balance between storytelling and riding around the city – he also made us laugh a lot, we had a great time! Such good value for money , would 100% recommend!
I did the 1.5 hr eMonsterRoller tour by E-Magine. Our guide was Bianca and she was amazing. She made the tour fun with her stories and knowledge. She took us to some really cool sights and fed us some great historical information. Funny enough though, I feel like just riding the eMonsterRoller scooters was the most fun part! Kind of wish I could keep the thing for entire time here in Budapest! They are a blast to drive!
Excellent tour for overview of Budapest attractions
The 1.5 hours tour is a very good way to get an overview of some of the main attractions of Budapest. It is very convenient to ride the electrical bikes and the route is quite accomodating to the bike usage. Our tour leader Attila was very knowledeable and with a very good sense of humor. He took really good care of us snd answered every question we had. He also took ample time to take photographs of us. I highly recommend this tour as an alternative to walking or Segway tours if you have been on a push bike or motor bike before.
I was a little apprehensive before we set off but there really was no need to be worried. Attila took us to a quiet side street so that we could familiarise ourselves with the bikes, we then set off at a gentle pace and were thoroughly entertained by Attilla’s knowledge and narrative which was wonderful, it really was a fantastic experience and I would definitely recommend doing it!
This was a great beginning to our trip gives you a great idea of the city, fantastic information. Would recommend everyone travelling to Budapest to do this. Thanks!
