Overview

This is an easygoing cycling tour along the Danube River, visiting Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. Our adventure begins in Vienna, the city of music. Then it takes us along gentle country lanes, following the path of Europe's most famous waterway. We will stop over in towns and villages along our route: Bad Deutsch Altenburg, Bratislava (Slovakia's capital, where medieval castles meet head on with socialist-era architecture), Györ, Komarom (where Arabian horses are sired, raised and trained), and make our way around the famous panoramic Danube Bend, sampling local dishes along the way. We end our journey in the city of Budapest, among fairy book castles, where Eastern Europe meets Western. There is plenty to do and see in Budapest, including heading to one of the city's hot springs and enjoying a long hot soak. We have built extra time into Vienna and Budapest so you don't have to miss a thing! Accommodations are in 4 star hotels with en suite facilities.
