5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

If you want to tour by public transit this is the only way to go. Used it many times while in Budapest.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This was a very easy and affordable way to get around Buda Pest. Bus 16 rules and pretty much gets one everywhere needed on Buda hill. The trams and underground are likewise easy to use and a good way to see the city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Great way for discounts and free transportation.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Delivered before our arrival to our hotel this was a great buy. Used it for three days on tram and subway. went over Arpad Bridge from Buda to Szecheny Baths in Pest and the Subway all over the city. Went to Buda caste and at the best museum entry was free!
You will want a serious marker pen to write in the date and time you first USE the card. Get it.you won't regret it.

The card paid for itself!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

We loved the Budapest card. We enjoyed using the transit system and visiting museums when the day was too hot or rainy to stay outside. The card also included a 10:30 walking tour on any morning on the Buda side. We took advantaged on our first full day in Budapest. We took the 2:00 p.m. tour on the Pest side on our last day in Budapest. Both tours were quite informative.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This is worth it for the ease of using public transportation.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

I found the card to be an essential even if you just use for public transport as so convenient and saves money. Handy option of having it delivered to your hotel so pick up on checking in.
I used it for free entry to excellent museums and to roman ruins at aquicum. Savings too on other attractions.
