brilliant tour. Lots of very useful information and can use it for 48hrs and hop on and off anytime! We visited almost every place and if we had time would have used it the 2nd day too but unfortunately it was the day we were travelling back home.

The bus was comfortable, the commentary was great and the staff were very helpful. A great way to see the city so that you can decide where you want to spend your time seeing the places that most interest you

I like Hop-on Hop off Tours. This is a fun way to see the city. The boat ride and lunch on the river was wonderful. The stops were well planned out for our two day adventure. Just a warning there are three Hop-on Hop off Tours in operation make sure you get the right one. The red pictured bus on the website is not the one you get a ticket for.

Hop On never disappoints. Great way to see the highlights of a city and then return to the sites that interest you.

This tour was great value as it was current for 2 days and it also included a boat trip. Only wish we had been in Budapest longer as couldn't utilise the next day's portion of ticket. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Budapest.
