We had a whole group of folks do the Hop On Hop Off tour of Budapest. Pick your primary sites that you want to see. Don't miss the views from the caste and citadel. The Fisherman's Bastion view is fabulous!

We did the buy one day get one day free. This includes the bus as much as you want day and evening, the boat up and down the Danube, free wifi which was very fast, an audio tour in many different languages and an opportunity to sit inside or up on top which is more open air. So why two... More

Budapest is beautiful, with glorious buildings and squares, and its history is fascinating. There's just one problem: looking back, we wonder how much of what we heard on the bus tour was accurate. It certainly seemed peppered with self-congratulatory myths,but we gave them the benefit of the doubt - as you must. Then we passed the Dohanyi Synagogue and were... More

Fellow passenger purposely hit me and tried to bully me on boat. Almost had to call police. No one in charge. Also, ver infrequent service and was lied to at a 5min photo op stop.

We bought tickets and were lucky to get 3 days for the price of one because day 1 was disrupted by a march. The bus was ideal to get your bearings and an overview of the city. The boat tour in the evening was very nice. The weather was very hot so it was good to be on the river.

Shorter than many other City tours elsewhere but the 50 minute red bus tour was quite informative when you could actually get your earphones working. People were frequently changing seats to try and get any reception. The yellow bus went outside the city but very little was of interest except views back into Bath. We got the Senior rate and...

We got this on our first day in Budapest advertised in our hotel. It was 5900 HUF (about £14 each). This gave us 48 hours access to the two tour bus routes, boat tour, walking tour and night bus tour. If you get it half way through the day you can stretch it to 3 days. The buses were about... More

For 5500 forints, you get 2 days of travel on the Red and Yellow lines, a night tour, a boat cruise and a free walking tour. Five tours in one! We tried them all except for the walking tour (which relies on tips). The bus was great for getting us to all the main attractions. The boat was a bit... More

Wifi is available and fast. Also provide "Audio Guide". Take the night boat tour..if you come here around June, please take the 9pm schedule. You... More
