Traveler Tips


  • "However, it does stop running very early in the evening so chart out your tip before you begin to ensure you are where you need to be at 5PM when the bus stops." See review
  • "It is confusing at the bottom of the hill as to which tour company honors the Big Bus passes, so you have to ask before you get in line." See review
  • "Rather budget on spending separately to take a day or night boat trip (a night-time boat trip is essential in Budapest)." See review

The boat ride on the Danube was informative. Enjoyed the historical information and having a tv screen that was in sync to the narrative.

Budapest tour.

Took the whole tour and then decided to do the boat tour. Unfortunately the stop that we were told to leave the bus was quite a walk to the boat. Other than that, it was a good tour of the city.

Bad experience in Budapest
Phathiwe_K
, Apr 2022
None because I was pressed for time. But I was hoping to do the river cruise. It didn’t happen because even though I was told the round trip takes 1hr 40min, it took two hours because the drivers stand around talking and don’t care that some people need to connect with the cruise at 12. Officers at the ticket office are unfriendly and abrupt.

Handy way to get around the city, wish it ran later
Coreen_J

Very handy to get around the city and get some information at the same time. I like to walk around a lot, but this got me to the farther out spots (city park, Gellért Square) in between. English audio tour was a little hard to understand, due to thick accent of narrator. Included a one hour Danube cruise, which was a nice bonus. I did the one at night, which was a bit chilly, but a cool way to see the city lit up. Unfortunately, the times in the map were listed wrong, so I had to wait an extra half hour for the last cruise. Biggest disappointment was that the hours for the bus didn't run longer (ended by 5pm). I got stuck at Castle Hill later in the day, past when the last bus ran, so ended up walking all the way back to the Pest side (about 40 minutes). Since it's light until 7-8pm, a 7pm end time would've helped a lot.

Great service. Please be aware that you have to go to office at stop 1 (can start at any of the steps) to get paper ticket instead of the voucher. Also the last buses only run till 5pm.

Great value to see Budapest. The English version of the historical points were very easy to follow. I first took the hop on hop off 2 times. I enjoyed taking my time seeing the very many sights. Highly recommend

no very good at best

Better organization and communication of accurate information are greatly needed by this company. In the app and online there were different instructions for how to get your online voucher validated e.g. at the office, by staff at the main stops, etc. In the end, it seemed the best option was to go to the office but on arrival at the office, we were informed we had to email the QR code to the office (?) from our phones. However, after some failed attempts to do this, the person managing the reception desk said he could in fact just scan the QR code on our phone?? We were not the only customers having these problems. Further, the time shown for the guided walk on the app was 1pm whereas it was and had been for some time in fact at 11!! Last the directions given for the boat trip were limited to 'dock 6' but attempts to get better directions via the support service did not work. We were on a tight schedule and missed out on both the walk and boat trip. The hop on and off service was OK but I would either double-check everything before leaving for Budapest at the least. I will not book with this company again.

Nice tour, greeters and drivers in the bus were very nice. The agent in the office was not very polite or helpfull. It was just us and he acted like he was in a big rush, almost upset we were asking questions.

Check the operational hours if you only visit for the short time. The cruise only operates if there are 10 people on board or more.

Walk was the most interesting part. Felt on bus it was a bit too fast and needed more info on stops. Also having paid in advance it is a pest ( no pun) to have to go to an office to pick up ticket when imo it should be capable of being used from mobile or at worst issued at any of the stops

The first bus we caught had no headphones and was over crowded. The plastic on the upper deck did not help for a good view and we were no better off than taking a walk as we learnt nothing about the surroundings. The second and third buses were better

Good tour of the city. You need to go the the central location to pickup the ticket. The boat tour is also nice to see the city from another prospective. There is a nice square near the boat landing (no. 6)

A good bus tour with commentary via ear phones. These were supplied. Could do with some more signage about where you pick it up from but the street sellers helped us.

Not the best experience

Booked later in the day hoping to catch the second to last bus. It turned up 15 mins late and then only travelled 4 stops, making it a pretty expensive bus ride.
