“Good views and cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The trams are a cheaper alternative to the official bus tours and the no 2 runs right up the Pest side of the river giving some spectacular views.
Ensure that you validate your ticket as soon as you get on the tram as there are ticket inspectors on the go.
At the moment, there are works up near the parliament so you have to get off the tram there but if you wait at the stop there is a free transfer bus that you can continue the journey on.

“Don't Miss it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Tram No.2 runs along the Danube on the Pest side and provides lovely views across the river. We enjoyed the tram ride thoroughly. Do make sure you validate your ticket as soon as you get into the tram.

“Great for cheap sightseeing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Spotted this on Tripadvisor so had to give it a try - usual tram ticket fare (or you can use your Budapest card if you have one).

Grab a window seat and ride the tram just south of the Parliament and travel south down the line - great for photos.

“Great views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

The number 2 tram runs right along side the Danube on the Pest side, we rode it a few times (with our toddler) and the views are lovely. We purchased a travel card which made things very easy and we did hop on and off the teams quite a bit :)
