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).

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.

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! ;)

Very kind spot with very friendly staff and the only one around renting us a small sailing boat!
Also we could use the private beach after our sailingtrip, very nice place, quiet und not crowded, with a little playground.

We were really lucky and happy! Big recommendation!

This was truly a highlight of our first trip to Hungary and Tihany/Lake Balaton. Our guide, Adam provided us with great bikes and an excellent full day of biking and half day of hiking. Adam speaks English beautifully, shared the history of the area and took us to places that we would have missed had we not been with him. We are thrilled that we had the opportunity to spend the time with Adam and highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a little more adventure in trip to the area. Don't miss it!

From my first email contact with Adam D. he was helpful and spoke good English.
The bicycles were equipped with panniers and water bottle cages as requested (we had our own water bottles) and were ready as arranged.
Adam gave us guidance on the route and places to visit, then we set off.
We returned the bicycles on the 4th day around 7pm after checking with Adam that this was ok. We had the flexibility to keep the bicycles for longer however, this might not always be possible in peak season.
We were very happy with our experience of hiring bicycles from here and our independent 4 day tour around Lake Balaton and the Kali Basin.

Adam took us sailing on Lake Balaton for 2 and a half hours and we had a great time.

Everything was extremely well organised.

Adam’s English is excellent and he told us lots of things about the local area as well as explaining how to sail the boat.

We would definitely recommend this activity.
