The first company popped up was Aktiv Pont Tihany, when we arrived at Balatonfured and started searching for activities around the lake. We booked a sailing trip and a bike tour straight away. Our guide, Adam speaks excellent English and was very helpful over the phone and also in person. At the end we only did the sailing trip, which was a very relaxing experience. We didn't have high winds, so it was really smooth sailing. Our plans changed, hence the biking did not happen, but it was great how flexible and accomodating Adam was when we were trying to arrange new dates. They operate from the Panorama Hotel in Tihany, where we had lunch at the end of our trip and could use their private beach. It was great!
Did not check other activities but I am sure they have a lot on offer.
Adam is very knowledgable about the Balaton and had many ideas and tips how to spend our 6 days there. Highly recommend this company for an active holiday around the lake.
One tip: the most cost friendly the sailing is when more people attend. The price is the same even if there are only 2 or 7 people. ( our boat's capacity was 7 people but only 2 of us went).

If you are thinking about sailing on Lake Balaton, choose "Aktív Pont Tihany"!

Adam - the skipper - is helpful, informative and clearly competent. During the trip he shared a lot of details about sailing and sailing rules, as well as about the water areas and depths of Lake Balaton, which was a lot of new information for a layman like myself. Besides relaxation and recreation, you can also have an extra experience: you can take control of the boat.:)

I can only recommend them!

We sailed with friends around the Tihany peninsula. I am very glad that we chose Activ Pont Tihany, because this young, enthusiastic and competent team made the experience much better. Adam, the captain, told us a lot about the area and sailing on Lake Balaton, as well as the waterfront activities. You can see that he loves the lake, sailing and is very good with people. I heartily recommend to everyone! Go and try!

Adam’s English is excellent he explained to us how to sail the boat He was great guide on local area, history, culture and language. We had also the possibility to sail the boat and take a break for swimming in the middle of the lake.

We had a really great biking experience here. The owner was really helpful. He advice the type of bike for us. He also showed us the map and recommend some awesome sightseeing views which were magnificent. Even after the biking, he also showed us another way back home which also has great view :)
Thank you very much.

It was a great day to go sailing. The sailboat was 34 foot, nice and roomy. Adam, the captain, spoke English well and catered to our every need. It was a great value and the highlight of our trip to lake Balaton.

We had a wonderful sailing afternoon with Adam. Adam was kind and very knowledgeable about Hungarian and Balaton history. Just a train ride and day trip away from Budapest and well worth the trip. This was my second time sailing with this company and it won't be the last!

We had an amazing trip with a very kind guide (Adam). He makes personalized trips for you or you can just rent a bike. During the trip, he gives you a lot of info that you won't find on the Internet. The prices are not high and you will get quality in return.

We took a half day bike & hiking trip, where the guide showed us the most interesting places not known from tourists.

Adam planned a great day for us on the Tihany Peninsula. First, we sailed on Lake Balaton and also had a nice swim. Next up: hiking and biking to places tourists often don't get to see, including scenic overlooks, lavender fields, geologic formations, and the beautiful west coast. Lastly, we toured the town of Tihany, with its historic abbey, famous echo spot, and more stunning views. After the tour, we had an excellent dinner at a restaurant Adam recommended.

Adam was a great guide who spoke perfect English and was really fun to spend time with. We were in Hungary for nearly two weeks, and this was by far our favorite day!

We've tried out the electronic bike and the tandem bike as well for a trip around the peninsula which are both modern and available for an affordable fees.

Adam also took us out for sailing which is a lot of fun and the scenery there in the bay is simply charming.

Keep up the good job! ;)
