First we had to walk a mile plus to find a stop which are poorly marked. We finally went to the office. We decided to stay on the bus for most of the circle. However, nothing on our earphones matched what we were seeing. The stop numbers were never announced. I love when he was talking about a castle and... More

We bought a one day ticket and went to catch the bus from the Hero Square stop. The bus can get quite full as it drives around the route. We were a bit disappointed that the bus did not drive up to the Citadel (one of the best viewing spots in the city) and did not drive through the Castle... More

Good value really helped getting around Budapest and with commentary. We got a 2 day ticket which was needed if you wanted to visit the attractions. Budapest is fantastic really good transport links. My only complaint is that the bus stops running at 4pm and with the 2 day ticket you got two free boat trips, one at night. So... More

We were trying to decide which Hop on Hop Off company to go with as there are 4 or 5 companies to chose from. What made us decide was a brilliant rep Haikel Bjaoui which we met on Erzsebet ter near Starbucks - he went above and beyond to seal the deal. It is excellent value for money as you... More

We met the rep at Elizabeth's square and not only did he give us a great over view but he extended our ticket to 72 hours at no further cost. We got 3 days , a river cruise and a night time tour all included for €25 each which we thought was exceptional value. The only criticism is that the... More

We were going to brave public transport but this goes everywhere you would want to go as a tourist AND you get a free night bus tour and river cruise all for around £21pp, which is great quality.
