Overview
If your time in Budapest is short, or you just want a simple way to get between sights, this hop-on hop-off bus tour makes a great option. Don’t worry about figuring out the city’s multiple bus, metro, and tram systems—instead, simply hop on and off at multiple stops to view the landmarks. Choose a 24-, 48-, or 72-hour ticket, and upgrade for an added river cruise and night tour.
What to Expect
Board a bus at any of the designated stops to start seeing the sights of Budapest. Your ticket is valid for 72, 48, or 24 hours, depending on the option you booked.

Settle onto the comfortable double-decker bus and enjoy panoramic views along the city-center route, listening to the informative audio commentary along the way.

Stay aboard for the full 1.5-hour loop to see everything in one go, or hop on and off at the many well-placed stops as you please. Stops include Heroes’ Square and the Parliament building, plus St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Chain Bridge, Castle Hill in Buda, and more.

All tickets include walking tours in Buda or Pest. The 48-hour Premium ticket also includes a Danube cruise, and the 3-day Deluxe ticket includes a castle shuttle and panoramic night tour.

Excellent way of getting around

What a great two days of getting around the city. Thanks to Karima Tarchoun who I got the ticket off in the street. She was so helpful. These buses were frequent and good commentary.

We took the 2 day option for the Big Bus Hop On Hop Off bus, which was about $70 each (they matched their competitor's price that we found on a brochure). It is a super great way to see the city, with unlimited 'hop ons'...More

Quick way to see the city

The buses were frequent we brought the 2 day ticket and went on a free cruise and a bus tour to citadel. It's everything you expect from a hop on and off tour

First look at Budapest

We found this company very good and easy to deal with. The maps and paperwork were a great help. The cost was fair, and the staff were good. Changing from red to blue was also easy to do. We enjoyed the day.More
