Program Centrum Tours

Attraction details
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We arrived on a wet and cold day and decided against walking so we took (not to enthusiastic) the Program Centrum Hip Hop tour. For 600 HUF each we had a 48 hrs window to use their 2 routes – green and pink. It was a pleasant surprise. The busses were warm and comfortable; the ear phones were good and easy to select the desire languages. The music and the commentaries were appropriated. Extra on the pink route it was (our luck) English only guide and with only few people in the bus she was able to add a lot to her standard delivery by answering our questions. During the 2 days we use them extensively to get from point to point and although we had to wait (they come every ½ hr) we did not encounter a full bus that could not accommodate us. I notice the wait for the public transportation was not shorter…However in full tourist season might be a problem to get back on the bus if nobody gets out…
Including in the price there were a coupon book. From it we took advantage to get a free 1hr Danube cruise (there are 2 available – 1 day , 1 night) however we were lucky to take a late day one that came back after sun set… so we enjoyed both type of views. Forget the commentaries… just enjoy the scenery. Plus we got discounts in some places that just happened to wanted to go- State Opera tour and some cafes.
Note: There were some other similar tours – but none looked to be as good as this one.

Got their tickets for 2 days hop on hop off sightseeing buses (The Green and Pink buses), and they came with 2 free boat rides. The boat ride in the evening is a must. It's so beautiful. Also came with a coupon book which is a good deal. The free Goulash soup is awesome! Also signed up for their one day Danube Bend tour. The tour guide Imre is so knowledgeable and you can learn so much Hungarian history and culture from him. Even though only 2 people signed up for the tour, not only didn't they cancel the tour, but we feel like we got a very good private tour and treated so well. Definitely recommend this tour company!

Please do not choose this tour! The buses were NEVER on schedule. Either 20 minutes late or 10 minutes early. My mother and I ended up taking the metro more then the buses because they were never there. The tour staff is also INCREDIBLY rude. When we complained about the lateness of the bus, the guide suggested to " stop complaining or get off the bus and walk." ( see picture of awful guide) .
Furthermore the audio content is poor and cuts off constantly, and there is no wifi even though it is advertised. STAY AWAY. Choose the Red bus!

We did the on/off bus tour. Kids under 10 were free, and the ticket included TWO boat rides, a free beer at one stop, a free bowl of goulash soup at another, and discounts at many other places (restaurants, opera house tour, hot baths). The buses and the boats weren't real new, but they did the trick.
