There are a number of ways to get to know a city quickly. This is certainly one of them. The two routes ,red and yellow, offered take you most places and then you can travel back to your favourites the next day. We liked the boat trip but we thought there should be a better commentary on Margaret Island. Especially... More

We got to see the whole city with two routes and also got a Danube short river cruise in the price. A very good deal with informative guides.

We were extremely disappointed with this service. The buses are not very suitable for someone with a disability (rollater or crutches) I was left to my own devices trying to get on & off the bus which was quite difficult. Other passengers helped me out. The tour guides were not very helpful, they had no pride in their uniforms or... More

Thank you for the feedback! Our service is a low cost sightseeing... We don't have tour guides on any of our buses! Hosts/hostesses manage the audio guide system (that's why it's available in many languages) during the tour and they check the tickets when passangers get on/off at the bus stops. It's possible that they're really busy with all of... More

We booked this and were offered 72 hours on both their red and yellow lines and also a boat tour. We had already spent two days exploring by foot before booking this trip and found the places the bus brought you we had already seen. The city is easy to explore by foot if you're able for walking for a... More

Thank you for the feedback! We operate low cost sightseeings which might seem average to some. The downtown area isn't too big and can absolutely be explored on foot and of course we also show the majos sights. All the tours in Budapest overlap in one way or another. More

We paid 4,500HUF for a 24 hour pass, offering us two bus routes, the 1 hour river cruise and a walking tour - great value, regardless of starting the day late (we set off just after 11am). It's a great way to see all the major sights, or pick and choose what you want to do/see. The commentary as we... More

Visited Budapest last week of Feb 2015 and bought the ticket for this hop on/off thing. This company has two routes; one is more of a general sightseeing (red) and the other is suppose to be more historical (yellow). They also offer a free walking tour and river cruise. It is a good deal if you start the first day... More

Thank you for the feedback! We posted our winter schedule everywhere plus you can find it in our brochures and at our bus stops. We have lot less tourists in the winter time therefore we have fewer rides... they run shorter so you can see all the sightes in daylight. More

I started my first day in Budapest somewhat late (11.00 am) -- decided I would go for an overview of both Buda and Pest with a 2-day hop-off and hop-on bus option. The hotel recommended (and sold me) the bus ticket on the Giraffe. It turned out to be the best possible option. The bus had a stop right at... More

Great value and a super way of getting round all the major attractions in Budapest. Such an amazing city but things are spread out so this was ideal. Ticket was valid for 2 days which suited us so well.
