My husband and I had a short city break in Budapest and our hotel advised that this was the best way to see around all the sights. Unfortunately when we were there, there was a National Holiday but the bus company did honour a 3 day ticket instead of a 2 day ticket. The buses run every 30 minutes until lunchtime and then every hour until about 5pm. I am sure that these are just winter hours but there was certainly insufficient buses running for the number of passengers wanting to utilise them. We were often left standing at a stop waiting on another bus as the scheduled bus was full. This wait could be anything from 20 to 50 minutes. The buses certainly do not run to timetable. If they are running too late, they miss out stops to try and get back on track and in reverse if they are early they sit on a street for anything up to 30 minutes. When we were there, there was quite a bit of snow fall and sleet and they put on open topped buses! On a positive note, the bus took us to all the important venues in central Budapest and maybe in better weather it would have been more enjoyable rather than trying to keep your hat on in the open topped bus! The ticket also allows you a cruise on the Danube. It advertised that there were 3 stops on the cruise but I am afraid to say they didn't stop at any for us! Not a great tour - sorry!
