Budapest Viewed from a Tuk Tuk
A few weeks prior to our summer Hungary trip we always browse the Hungarian deal sites (like Groupon or Livingsocial) for any unusual offers. Something caught our eyes and we decided to get the deal: a 2.5 hour long tour of Budapest with a tour guide, riding in a mini 3-wheel motor vehicle called Tuk Tuk. The deal also came with a free 1-hour boat ride on the Danube River.
Amongst all the rainy days we actually picked one with perfect weather; overcast and just warm enough. The Tuk Tuk picked us up at Erzsebet Square, in the middle of the city. Our guide and driver, Peter, was a very nice, courteous University student, who really enjoyed the driving and the interaction with us. Even though I have walked or travelled in most parts of the inner city, he was able to take us to a few places that I had not visited before. We could have had more stops if we wanted to, but our goal was to drive through as large of an area as possible. We only had 3 mini stops. Of course, I kept snapping pictures, and I’ve put together this slideshow for those of you who might be interested in taking this tour. If you are unable to take the tour, I hope I can give you a little insight into what inner city Budapest and the immediate surroundings look like. It’s a fun city to visit, for sure!
