The trip on the river bus was great, the best way to see the sites of Budapest from all perspectives

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Excellent tour, well organised, knowledgeable guides,etc. Only downside not much good for photographs as it is a proper coach so glass is to reflective for good shots, but a good way to see the main sites, and encourages to spend a bit more time on the ones that interest you.
