Really good tours, always got a seat on the top which is the best view! Very informative as there are three different tours, the red line bus, the yellow line bus and the blue boat trip. All of which are included in the price and can be used over two days. There are lots of different languages available through the... More

A great way to get about and see the city as well as get your bearings. For the price - you get 2 routes and a boat trip and is valid for 2 days The yellow route stopped a little sooner than we would of liked and the stops are not always the easiest to find, but other than that... More

Do this at the beginning of your stay and it'll show you where you want to go back to to spend more time and orientate you to the city. Great way to get round and see many sights. Use the map and timetable to coordinate your journey by bus and river across the city. Now the commentary is great but... More

We were pretty worn out by time we arrived in Budapest. Not knowing the city, we signed up for the ticket that allowed us to partake of both bus routes. This spared us from having to figure out trolleys and metros. Instead, we'd jump off at sights we'd anticipated visiting as well as those we hadn't. Then, wonderfully brainlessly, we'd... More

A good way to see the city but the concept is the same as the others. The service was awful the buses had seen better days. We ran for a bus. There were FOUR employees at the bus stop watching us and not one of them thought to tell the driver to wait 30 seconds. While we were there the... More

You can't avoid them in Budapest. Pay your money and take your pick. We chose the Green Line. Excellent way of getting a quick comprehensive view of the city but definitely not an alternative to public transport which we found easy to use. Good value for money even if we did have to wait almost an hour on one occasion.... More

The two day ticket is good value for money, as in addition to two days bus trips that you can get on and off when you want, you get a river cruise , an evening bus trip ,walking tour and the commentary is informative . This gives you a much clearer picture of where you want to go and spend... More

Hopped on the bus and spent the day really getting the lay of the land in Budapest. Not only did I see a large expanse of the city but also had the added bonus of making a friend to have dinner with that evening. Included in the price is a evening boat ride. Fun to see the city lit upand... More

We used the ticket to see the city and on a rainy second day in the city we used both the yellow and red line. This way we saw loads of the city and decided where we would like to get off and explore. Fantastic value (£16) for 48 hour travel, night tour, river cruise and walking tours. Buses are... More

we bought tickets for a few days free bus ride and it was absolutely a total waste of time and money. Instead of relying and stuck with their bus service, much better to consult the public transport services, and especially the metro, they are available and most agile. Anything that goes beyond a one time tour of two hours are... More
