There are a number of hop on, hop off bus tours of Budapest. Most of them seem to go to the same spots, and offer a few extra perks such as a river cruise, and walking tour. Most seem to have 2 different lines that they use which go to some different stops. Most seem to have buses that run... More

The tour bus was great. 48 hours is plenty of time to see the whole city. The boat ride was also great.

We use hop on services in every new city we visit and have always been pleased. Unfortunately this service does not measure up to the standards we have experienced in other cities. While they tell you the bus runs every 15 to 30 minutes, reality is 45 minutes to an hour over our two days here. This really permits a... More

Thank you for the feedback! We're sorry for the unfortunate experience. We run a low cost sightseeing service with low cost sightseeing buses. As stated in our terms and conditions we operate both open-top double decker buses and regular buses. According to the official summer timetable buses run in every 30 mins.

We purchased the 48hr ticket and I thought it was very good money for what you got! Does what it says on the ticket..no catches.. And included a boat tour too, which you can pay extra with another company and get the same thing! Yes, sometimes the buses got full up quickly at the early numbers but there was always... More

We purchased the two day pass. The first day we went around the whole route to see where we wanted to go. Our ticket also included an evening cruise on the Danube, which was lovely. Plus it included a night tour on the bus. There is even free wi-fi, but it was a little bit slow (understandably). I would certainly... More

This hop on/hop off tour was very disappointing. While i did appreciate that the price included the boat tour and night tour, the overall value was definitely not worth all of the problems. First, the time delay: supposedly, each bus was supposed to appear at each stop between 15 and 30 minutes. Unfortunately, some of the bus delays ranged as... More

Quite old buses. Public earphones (other company provide private). Long wait. Usually every 30 minutes. There is no timetable. Only first and last hours of departure from each stop. Hard to plan the visit at each stop. Staff OK.
