We found the Big Bus very convenient for getting around the city. There are plenty staff to help on the first day when your getting familiar with the route. It's a great service. We didn't have time to do the walking tour but the boat ride was lovely

We enjoyed the hop on hop off with 3 different routes we could take. Able to see all the sites of the city. Easily accessible from our hotel.

Very complete service: bus, boat and night city tour. And the shuttle to the Buda Castle. I recommend it indeed!!!

The deluxe ticket offers 3 different lines, a night ferry cruise, a night bus city tour, a walking tour and the river ferry which takes you to Margaret island. We were able to see everything with the use of this ticket.

We really enjoyed the Budapest Hop-on Hop-off tour. We took advantage of the walking tour and the riverboat tour. Both were great. Zoltz - not sure of spelling - was our guide for walking tour. Very knowledgeable about Hungarian history. He is a school teacher and you could tell he enjoyed teaching. Loves his country. We were able to navigate around the city and see the sights with the Hop-on Hop-off bus. Real value.

The Big Bus tour has many routes to provide to tourists seeking to learn more about a particular landmark or museum. The tour will definitely cover all of the major sites like Buda Castle and Matyas Church, but other lesser know sites as well. Very well done.

Great tour, understandable commentary and good value for price paid. It’s a great way to get an overview of the city.

I cannot think of a better way to see Budapest than by purchasing a 3 day Big Bus Hop-On Hop-Off bus pass. The ticket included unlimited usage of the buses which allowed me to experience the many sights of Budapest. In addition to this unlimited cruise journeys, linked with the bus journeys, made the whole experience a delight. The walking tours and the evening cruise just added to the wonderful experience. The only downfall to this trip would have been the night bus tour, we were there early to ensure we got a space on the bus. However there was much pushing, pulling and angry shouting as passengers tried to board the crowded bus, the conductor had little control over this situation. A queuing system should be implemented to make this night tour as successful as the rest of the experience. Overall I would highly recommend.

We have used Big Bus Tour buses all over the USA and World. They are a great way to get around and learn about the area that you are visiting. Earphones are given out and available in several languages. We have found the bus to be on time and convenient. The stops are setup with tourist in mind. If our visit allows, we usually purchase a two or three day package. With this purchase you will receive perks included with the price, river cruise, night tours, walking tours, etc. You will not regret purchasing this tour bus company.

A must for any sight seer. It tells you when to get off for the attractions. It goes slowly through the city. And the guides are real helpful

The tour was informative. We always do a Hop-on Hop-off tour when we first arrive in a new city to get our bearings and decide the sights we want to inspect further. we especially enjoyed the boat tour on the Danube. We got some great pictures of the impressive Parliament Building.

The hop on hop off gave us an overview of Budapest prior to striking out on our own. It saved a lot of walking. It’s stops were convenient. I often use them the first day in a new city to get my bearings.

BEWARE OF MULTIPLE BUS TOUR HOP-On-HOP OFF, THAT EXIST IN THE CITY. THIS REVIEW IS FOR BIG B RED BUS Excellent Way To Explore City. We Did Deluxe 3 Day Pass. Night Bus Tour Is Great. The Night River Cruise Is Excellent. Only Thing is Getting From Castle To Other Place The Shuttle's Are Less Frequent, So Plan and Manage Your Time Accordingly. !!!! We Will Sure Do This Again.

Best way to get around Budapest. Our hotel happened to be next to the first stop in Heroes Square so got first dibs on seats at the start in March. We had a 2 day pass. We did a run-through of whole ride first listening to the tour and then started hopping off at places we wanted to go. The headphones they provided were great sound in-ear. WiFi was always working and they have an app which shows you where all the buses are and that was very useful.
