Prague to Budapest Ride

Loved the Prague to Budapest trip!

5
We had such a great time on this trip. I wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't traveled with Exodus before. It exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Jan was fabulous. He was super knowledgeable not only about the route and biking but about every city we were in. I didn't realize we'd be getting guided tours (by Jan) in many of our stops. If he didn't know an answer to a question asked (which was rare) he made sure to find out for us. He also made sure we were well taken care of on the ride. As a newer biker I appreciated that he made sure we all knew the route, that there were breaks and that we were safe and had fun. As American's we loved the diversity of people in our group. Many Britts and people from other parts of the world as well. Made for really interesting conversations. Looking forward to our next trip with Exodus.

The trip had some fantastic sites along the way with a very good standard of hotels. The itinery for each day was excellent with some great cycling to be partaken with each day offering something for everyones taste. There were a few hills the first few days to be enjoyed or for those that were not ready full support given. The pace was set to the slowest rider and there was no pressure from the group or leader to rush the experience. I would fully recommend the trip to anyone who is interested in medieval architecture and history as the guides take you to some beautiful sites and relay some very intersting facts along the way.

Another completely satisfactory cycling holiday with Exodus, combining a well thought-through itinerary, good to outstanding hotels, historic and cultural enlightenment, great exercise in the company of other like-minded, easy going participants, led by 2 top-notch local group leaders with excellent English who went out of their way to take care of us and to share their knowledge and love of their countries.

Great mix of Exercise and Culture!

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.
