Prague to Budapest Ride

Great mix of Exercise and Culture!

4
The trip was very much according to expectations and as the trip notes described. I was on an October departure and that was "out of season" for some places so some of the usual restaurants/stops that the guides would typically use were closed but they adapted accordingly... The guiding was excellent and as a pilot this trip had 2 guides based on previous comments/feedbacks that it was difficult for one guide to manage if group was fragmented. I was impressed by how they adapted the trip and listened to our feedback to make changes on the go. I was also positively impressed by the amount of history and information on the locations that the guides were sharing. The initial days were a bit hilly but very manageable for anyone cycling regularly. The bikes were hybrid/trek types which were ideal for the purpose as we had multiple terrain types but primarily road. The agenda was quite full so morning starts and new hotel every night... with typically 90mins to 2hours in the late afternoon between arriving back at the hotel and heading out again for a city tour and dinner. It was a wonderful trip with many varied experiences and locations!

Cycling Prague to Budapest

This was a wonderful trip. The towns through Czech and the countryside into Vienna are beautiful. The Route flattens out once on the Danube and the scenery to Budapest is OK but the first part of the trip is the most scenic. It is pretty full on cycling and at times I felt like all I did was cycle, eat, sleep, but I really enjoyed it and came home much fitter than when I left.

Good trip, but some areas that need attention

3
Overall this is a really great trip, where you get to see some lovely places. There are only modest coach transfers which is great as maximises the time on the bike and/or sightseeing vs taking out some of the less attractive bits of road. There is variety in the cycling over the trip, which meant it was always interesting.

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Keith and Nicola for their review regarding the set-up of the trip and the hotel used in Budapest; we are reviewing these aspects with our local operator and we are confident that this will prevent any similar disappointments from recurring going forward.

Prague to Budapest tour May 2015

My head is still buzzing with memories of the wonderful Prague to Budapest cycle tour! Our very friendly group of 15 were competently led by Jan from Slovakia, who was energetic, attentive and full of historical and local knowledge. Each day’s cycle ride presented a range of different scenery, terrain, refreshment opportunities and of course challenges. The distances in the saddle were well planned and certainly manageable in terms of length and difficulty with respect to the grade of the holiday. We tended to stop for about one and a half hours at lunch to ensure refuelling and recovery. You need to be prepared for a relatively speedy turn around on arriving at each hotel in the late afternoon in order to make the most of the evening tour, led by Jan, of the village/town/city and to then locate a suitable place to eat dinner. Each day’s cycling commenced between 8.30 to 9.00 on most days to ensure packing in as much as exploration as possible. The cities were pretty busy to say the least with spectacular architecture round every corner but the centre of the smaller towns and villages were equally interesting and more accessible in the time frame of each day. My favourite towns were Cesky Krumlov and Bratislava. Vienna was stunning and deserves another visit to do it justice. I advise reading up on the main historical events of the area before you go to put it all into perspective and of course be prepared for all weathers. Credit must be given to Jan for leading the whole trip so well. I am going to have difficulty finding a cycling holiday to match this adventure!!!

Fantastic cycling experience

My partner and I took this trip to see a part of the world that we had always been interested in exploring. We also love bike riding; it is a great way to explore new places at a different pace. This trip will suit anyone who is fit and enjoys seeing the countryside from a different perspective.

An enjoyable tour. Packed lunches would have been preferable. Stopping at restaurants tends to lead to the waste of time which would have been better spent in the day's destinations. Altering the route taken from Gyor to Tata would be an improvement. The one followed on our trip was on a rather dull road which was used by a lot of heavy lorries.

Prague to Budapest cycle

This was my first exodus trip and I enjoyed every minute of it a great way to see 4 countries. I am not a keen cyclist by any means but all you need is a good level of fitness as their are frequent breaks on the way. The distance covered each day is just right and becomes easier as the trip goes on building up a good level of fitness. You have plenty of time to explore the city's after the cycle normally arriving late afternoon with a guided tour and free time . I would highly recommend this trip and I will definitely be booking another cycling holiday .

The Prague to Budapest ride was my first Exodus-experience and it was a great discovery! Jan, our guide, was eloquent with a large knowledge of all kinds of aspects concerning the trip and succeeded in bringing history and local customs to life during the city strolls, the dinners and cycling. The tour was a pleasant mixture: some major cities, a couple of small UNESCO listed villages and the natural scenery during cycling.
