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.

Used the red and yellow buses extensively on our visit (2 couples) in November. Firstly, perhaps because it was November, we managed to negotiate for the 2 day ticket (a) discount from 6000 Huf pp to 5000 and (b) a third day on the ticket at no extra cost. We used each bus on separate days to do a full... More

Thank you for the feedback! We'd really appreciate it if you'd let us know which bus stop were waiting at. All of our buses are equipped with GPS and therefore are easily trackable. If we have bad traffic in the city it's possible that customers do have to wait 5-10 minutes but other than that we have no information on... More

The concept of this bus tour is great in theory and the price is ok for us (ie 2 people)but the service is cut back so much that it creates abnormal demand on the services because they not only run a shorter day but buses are cancelled without notice. Twice the bus I wanted was cancelled and I had to... More

The tour offers a great package - two overlapping bus tours and a boat cruise. Perfect, we thought. Cover a large part of the city and rest our feet from all the pavement pounding the two days before. We picked up the earliest bus from near our hotel (the stop was by the funicular railway) at 10.30. Hopped off for... More

Booked a two day ticket for the Hop On Hop Off tour This ticket also includes a free passage on the River Cruise (very good) I thought the pick up points could have been better signed Not sure if it was because of the winter time table ? we had a big wait between times. If we had missed a... More

We bought tickets for this tour bus supposedly for three days (a special seasonal discount !) with assurances that it ran on all of Christmas Day. Suffice to say that our initial bus ran early from a scheduled 10 minutes wait at one of the sights in order to make up time meaning we were late for the next part... More

Thank you for the feedback! We posted our Christmas schedule everywhere we could (facebook, webpage) and informed everyone we work with several times... and of course that's why the tickets were valid for three days since we had fewer rides during the holidays. More

I would recommend this tour, but with a few criticisms. The adverts in our hotel and lealfets advertised 5000 HUF, but it was 6000 HUF. As it was winter all the routes finished earlier by a couple of hours and so although the tickets are for 48 hours it makes it quite tight to manage to do the Red line,... More

Thank you for the feedback. According to previous years statistics there are a lot less tourists in Budapest and this schedule always worked for us and them as well. We hope you come back and check out the city during summer time and ride all of our lines with the summer schedule. More

Apart from weak information in the headphones on a red line bus, the bus lines seemed to turn around the same places and wait forever on red lights and are relatively slow due to traffic jams. In winter, our bus was 1 hour late in the morning and was cold inside. It stood 25 minutes on citadel stop, for unknown... More
