What You Can Expect
If you’d like to sit back and relax while you sightsee, stick on the bus for the 2-hour loop, with narration to educate you on the surrounding landscape. A nighttime bus tour departs at dusk to show you the sites illuminated in the evening, and the two guided walking tours lead you through central Pest and Buda’s Castle Hill.
With a full 48 hours to use your Big Bus Budapest tour ticket, you’ll still have time for Danube River cruise, offering unparalleled views of the city and four stops to hop on or hop off. See the Itinerary for a complete list of stops and more information on the included daily activities.

Very good tour, very frequent and the free boat trip was brillant ..
Very informative and visits the main tourist points of interests. Ticket offers much more than the bus access which we didn't use due to time constraints but would recommend and possibly use again.
Probably the best way to see a city running commentary get on and off when you please also includes a river trip ,well worth the money
