We spent two days travelling with this company around Budapest and would recommend this as an excellent way to see the city and to get from a - b on your itinerary. The bus travels to the main sights round two circuits red line or yellow line. There is also a boat trip included in the price which gives you... More

Following a guided tour of the city on foot/public transport, we decided to go on the Hop on/Hop off bus. This was a good move as it put all the sights we had visited in context. We did both the yellow and red tours from start to finish in the morning of two days ( the ticket is valid for... More

Because based on what we saw you'll get some more free anyway! This disorganised shower really couldn't run a bath. The moment will come when they offer you another day free of charge to apologise for their current mistake. We saw one couple get their second one in a row today. I can say that I saw the other two... More

Thank your for the feedback! We'd really appreciate if you'd specify the problems... could't really pin-point it based on the review. :( According to your comment's date we guess the problem was that there were numerous road closures in the downtown that day we had to cope with. We announced this earlier and made sure our staff handles the situation... More

We used this bus to get to everything in Budapest service was great. Buses were almost always on time. One time bus was late because of traffic. Stops were where we wanted to go. We purchased 2 day pass which included a boat trip. The boat trip was enjoyable too. This is one of the best hop on bus services... More

The price is very reasonable (6000 HUF for an adult which equates to around 15 pounds)- this includes a second day free (which you will more than likely avail of as there is so much to see) as well as a river cruise on the Danube. The buses run regularly and it includes audio for 20 languages. It stops at... More

If you want to get an overall impression of the city, this is an easy and informative way of doing it. The guides/tour agents on duty at the bus stops and on the buses are all very helpful, speak excellent English and are well informed. However, some caveats. Firstly, it is not particularly cheap - 6000 fts for 48 hours... More

Thanks for the feedback! The hop on hop off sightseeings are usually not part of the public transportation system and they cannot provide the same options. This low cost sightseeing service goes around in the same circle over and over again in Budapest and as you stated with limited operating hours. More

Like other cities, the hop on hop off bus tour gives you an easy way around town, shows you the top tourist attractions and provides you with history and background to your new city. Be mindful of times tho so you don't get stuck late afternoon miles away from your hotel.

There are a number of ways to get to know a city quickly. This is certainly one of them. The two routes ,red and yellow, offered take you most places and then you can travel back to your favourites the next day. We liked the boat trip but we thought there should be a better commentary on Margaret Island. Especially... More
