Buses are way too infrequent compared to tlother tourist buses. And unhelpful staff. Better off using one of the other operators.

Definitely consider a two day pass with one of the "Hop On Hop Off" tour buses while touring Budapest. As spread out as many of the attractions are on each side of the Danube, its a great idea and well worth the money. Unfortunately, our experience with this one left a bit to be desired.

We always take the city bus tour when visiting a new city. We selected this one and opted for the two day ticket doing the red route and the river trip to Margaret Island on the first day and then the yellow route the following morning. Two days is needed as to pack it all in one day is too... More

Our hotel package included 48 hours on this, so we used it to visit the city. We spent as much time waiting for a bus as time spent on the bus. Some stops were confusing, as buses from the same line stop there but go in different directions, so be sure to ask where they go next. Buses were the... More

We spent two days using the Hop On, Hop Off bus and loved it as an easy way to see the city (and we even used it as a way to get around). Definitely do the night boat ride on the Danube as it's the best way to view the city!

My husband and I spent four days in Budapest and bought a 2 day pass for the second and third days. It was great! On the first day of the pass we explored the city using the red and yellow lines and took both a day cruise and a sunset cruise on the Danube. On the second day of the... More

Just as we have found in other cities [e.g. Vancouver, Barcelona etc] these tours allow one to get ones bearings and decide subsequently where each monument, church etc lies in relationship to each other, the walking distances involved, where to return etc. This was no exception with the two-day pass and the river trip [less informative than others but that...

This was a terrible experience. I purchased tickets from Get Your Guide because they had the best price. I specifically chose Giraffe tour because it said there was a LIVE guide and that a mobile voucher is accepted, "just take it to any stop and exchange your mobile voucher for a ticket". From our hotel we had to walk about... More

Do not use giraffe hop on off bus. Use a different vendor. Buses are infrequent. I am in Budapest, waited 15mins for bus. We were at the front of the queue. Staff member told me that there were only 2 seats. There are 4 of us. So a couple went on. Then she said I have found another two seats.... More
