Do not bother with this bus tour. It takes ages and stops too often; we stopped six times and waited around 10 mins per stop before we saw anything interesting. Hopeless. This is a fabulous city and this tour does not do it justice. The commentary was uninspiring too. We waited 20 mins at the Citadel but not at the... More

We read the great reviews and the poor reviews, but still paid our money. Creatures of habit we like a bus tour to orientate us in the city. If like us you are going to read the bad reviews and book anyway, then here are some personal tips to make the experience better. 1. Unlike other cities like Vienna or... More

Day bus trip useful, but comments by others about erratic times and over-crowding, we also experienced. The night mare was the loading of the night cruise for which you use the same ticket. Best description is "bedlam" Just hope somebody with knowledge of boat capacity was counting the number of patrons boarding

Involved in your ticket is a second day free to go on 2 different tours on the buses (yellow and red lines) a one hour boat trip and you can also do a different night time tour too on both bus and boat! There were staff everywhere to help you with ANY problems even if unrelated to their service and... More

We went on the Red Hop on bus which was ideal for us and really good value .. Especially if you use both days. The commentary was very good with extra staff on board. Never had to queue or wait very long... A good way to quickly see Budapest. The cruise was included although a little shorter than the one... More

First of all, do NOT choose the Green Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus line (see other review). Short version - They start a little later, have old-school headphones, and sometimes the top is full. Longer version - This was a good value for 48-hours but probably best if your trip is longer than two days. If you are banking on this as your... More

You can cover the main places of interest in two days. We got two days for the price of one.It also included a one hour boat trip on the Danube as well as a one hour Budapest by night . The 15 min photo stop at the top of the Citadel was worth it for the breathtaking views of the... More

Last for two days and includes bus and boat transport and one evening boat trip. You can see all the sights of the city in comfort with an audio commentary in your chosen language. They are very busy and popular and ran to the timetables they provided. You can get on and off wherever there is a stop and can... More

My wife and I spent 5 days end July in Budapest, a lovely city. This service was sold to us as flexible, affordable, dependable, blah, blah, blah! My main objection is that we didn't get what we were promised. Buses only go every 30 mins (which you know before you buy). What you don't know is that buses often arrive... More

We found the Giraffe Hop on Hop off tour good value and a good way to see the main sights in Budapest in a couple of days. The buses were on time, which has not always been our experience of such services in other cities, and they stopped at all the major attractions. There were 2 main routes, with good... More
