This is the best way to get round the city of Budapest, why you ask? because there would be too much walking and you would not be able to see all the interesting sites that are available. It is also an historical tour around Budapest - explaining how the present day city came about * we only did the one... More

We booked this hop on hop off tour at 6000HUF per person, it wasn't the best sight seeing tour we've been on. Although cold outside the upstairs was unbearably hot. The tour information is not that detailed with lots of music between commentaries. If you get off it's an hours wait until the next bus. The offers of "free beer",... More

Had a bit of trouble finding the stop number 11 which is marked as the station on the map but is actually round the corner but the wait was worth it. The commentary was very good and informative and we saw a lot of the city which is very spread out in 2 hours. From lthat you can decide what... More

We bough a two day ticket which included two bus routes, a night bus tour and a river trip. The timing of buses changes through the day, the buses themselves are dated, the headphones did not always work. The traffic in Budapest is very heavy and there were times the bus doubled back along its route, taking some time to... More

This is the third time, I've used the "hop on, hop off" busses (previously Barcelona and Paris), and I have to say this time was a massive disappointment! The busses were delayed from the second bus, and as they were only driving every 30 min (until 3pm), we had to wait for 45 min several places in 0 degrees! Additionally,... More

I have done these types of bus tours in London, Barcelona, Edinburgh and now Budapest. Unfortunately, the experience this time was so disappointing for the following reasons: 1- This was the most important for me. It is extremely cold in Budapest this time of year. You hope to get some reprieve from the cold by hopping on for a little... More

We had heard good things about hop on hop off buses, and were interested in trying out this style of sightseeing. The tickets are affordable, which was a nice feature, but during the off season months, the hours are fairly slim. By the end of the day, we found the buses were a bit off time wise. We also found...

The worst city bus tour i've ever been on. Started off well, good bit of info on the elizabeth and chain bridges but after that virtually no commentary at all, nothing about any of the sights we were passing. Also didnt even mention the castle or citadel or go anywhere near them even though they were advertised as stops on... More
