“Horrible company”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We bought a ticket in the Touristic information, where the staff was very friendly and explained that if we rush to the river, we would still catch the Danube cruise for 3pm. We rushed to the river, we saw the cruise and it was still 2 minutes to 3pm but we could not believe when we were just 10 meters to board and the cruise just left without us. We were seen by the staff, in fact, there was a man standing on the cruise, like waiting for people to come and he was talking to another man, who was standing on the docs. That was the most rude thing, to see us and just leave without an explanation. I do not recommend this company to anyone! We spent a lot of money and didn't use it at all after this!

“Save yourself the money, it's not worth it!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012


There are several different hop-on, hop-off bus companies in Budapest and we made the mistake of booking one through the tourist information centre at the main train station. The cost was €16 per person. I would not recommend this tour to anyone. We got on at the first stop at 10am (the earliest departure time). The bus driver and "tour guide" were talking and laughing loudly, barely acknowledging us as we boarded. When the other passengers got on, the "tour Guide" advised that her microphone wasn't working, so instead of her being able to tell us what was at each stop, we just had to listen to the recorded message through the headphones (which gave very limited information).

The bus was very crowded and it seemed that there were some stations that they did not let people on at due to the bus being full. It took an hour for the bus to get to the main destination that we wanted to go to and in hindsight, I wish we had just taken a taxi there (cheaper and more direct). I thought by doing the hop on hop of tour we would get some good information about the different sites, but this is not the case. The bus is also quite old and didn't seem to be clean when we boarded as the first group of the day.

I found the "tour guide" to be rude, unprofessional and really not interested in telling tourists about the sights of Budapest. She also jumped out at almost each station for a cigarette. Don't bother with the Queeney bus tour, some of the others might be okay but this one is not worth your money!
