Really happy with this HOHO company. Fabulous staff who spoke perfect English and were really helpful and upbeat. Came every 1/2 hour, 2 good bus routes. River cruise a bit dodgy though, skip that as the boat is about 100 years old! Only issue was the leaking buses in the rain, even on the lower level we got soaked by... More

I chose this tour because it was the best value and had an additional discount for students. There are many different Hop-On Hop-Off companies in Budapest, but this company seemed to be the least organized. The staff, while friendly, weren't able to properly answer questions about the routes, and every time I asked when the next bus was, it was... More

Thank you for the feedback! We're sorry for the disappointment! Our buses depart every 30 mins and if we have extra buses lined up (due to bigger crowds) they run in every 15 mins... Is it possible you came during the running race and demonstrations (17.05.2015.) when unfortunately many roads were closed and our buses had to change routes which... More

This tour is fantastic value. Your ticket is valid for 48 hours from the first time you board. Included in the price is two routes, and sunset tour, a boat tour and a walking tour. Stops were conveniently located and most often had an agent close by to tell you how long the wait would be for the next bus... More

Good, convenient way to make your way around town.Package offered a river cruise (which we did not go on) and an evening hop on & off ride - which we enjoyed thoroughly. Would recommend as you can stop by all the key highlight attractions.

A very good way to see Budapest at a reasonable price.Our two day ticket included an hours boat trip on the Danube.The staff were very helpful.On the downside, unlike other hop on hop off tours we were not supplied with our own ear phones, each passenger had to use the ones allocated to our seat.

It's Saturday morning, I have one day in Budapest and I'm waiting for the HopOnHopOff bus. It didn't arrive until 10:30. The other bus companies had been going past for an hour and a half. I arrive at the river for the cruise and find the other bus companies offer boats with spacious outdoor viewing areas and refreshment facilities. We... More

Thank you for the feedback! It's possible that you waited in STOP 10 where the first bus does arrive at 10:30. From STOP 1 our buses ran from 9:30 AM in every 15 mins... We're sorry you were disappointed by the cruise ship but we have to emphasize that we operate a low cost sightseeing service. More
