When we went to use the tickets we were told they were not valid. We were also told... More

Don't get caught out like we did mistaking this company for the city sightseeing bus (which is also red). If you don't want to stand around at bus stops all day waiting for buses to turn up, don't use this company!! Service is very slow, commentary is repetitive, and at times hard to follow, buses are outdated, and to top... More

Smart and good choice to have a look at all the attractions in Budapest that also includes boattrip on Donau. Good value for money. Pay for a 24 hour ticket and ride all you want.

Having been on some excellent hop on hop off tours in various cities we were looking forward to this one to discover more of Budapest. However, we were sorely disappointed. Firstly, most of the buses do no have an open top, meaning you cannot see most of the sights, particularly if you are not sat at the edge or or... More

When we got there we were informed we had to queue like everyone else for 45 minutes.we had paid twice the ticket price for the pleasure! They tell you buses arrive every 15... More
