The arrivals and departures were erratic. We later learned this was due to traffic congestion and roadworks and this required them to go off route without any explanation. The worst example was when we took the yellow route with a view to calling into the central market - stop 18 They didn't tell us that had decided not to call... More

Good route and great commentary but long delays between buses. Seats wet when rains and no rain covers provided like other tour companies do. Ticket valid for 48 hours and includes a boat tour via Margaret Island so plenty of time to hop on and off to see the sights.

Very few busses, no yellow bus at all, waiting at least half an hour for one bus to arrive (in the meantime the other companies had multiple), crowded, dirty. Awful experience.

We went on this Bus tour during a few rainy days in Budapest. One Bus was very very old and the roof was leaking huge amounts of water into the lower levels soaking everyone on board. Seats were soaking wet as well as being small cramped and worn out. The Bus should not have been in service at all. Many... More

Lived here for four months and had visitors so we did it. Yellow line closed for the holiday weekend. Hmm. Maybe that is why we didn't stick to the route. Some headphones missing. Otherwise a good way to see the city. Ali's took the evening river cruise and it was pretty good. Overall not bad.

We took the Hoho bus hoping to get a good information. It was good for orientation, we used it more for getting to & from different areas. but the commentaries were weak. Playing music most of the time.

Our Yellow Bus overheated and broke down. Bus attendant just let us sit on the bus without a clue. Had to walk back to our hotel. Our Red Bus driver was sick and took a very long break on the Buda hill while the passengers overheated. At the Red Bus war memorial waiting passengers outside in the rain were screaming... More

Our experience with the bus tour was less than exciting to say the least. Finding the bus tour staff (or them hunting you down at every intersection) was easy, finding a bus to pick you up, well that was a rare occurance. On one occasion, after waiting for 25 or 30 min a bus came but drove by with a... More

Several companies offer hop-on hop-off bus tours. A 48-hour ticket allowed us unlimited rides on two land routes and a boat route to Margaret Island. By taking both land routes, we had a fine overview of the city. Audio reception, available in a variety of languages, was clear; the English language narration was informative and easy to understand. We observed... More
