Why Travelers Choose This Tour
A Danube River cruise, panoramic night tour, and/or castle shuttle service are available with the 72-hour ticket, for a great deal.
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.
My experience of Big Bus Budapest was disappointing.There was far few buses running and at times we waited for 1/2 hour or more in searing heat.This wasted a lot of our time in Budapest on what was a short city break. We had to keep showing our confirmation of our booking to the drivers when we should have been given tickets to cover our 48 hours payment. It wasn't until we went to the offices that this was corrected. Another moan was the recorded commentary kept on saying "You are at your stop" instead of telling us where we were ie: stop number and alight for what attraction ? We also paid extra for the shuttle bus for the Buda castle area but waited at the stop where we thought it started from for 1/2hour only to be told when the Citadel bus arrived that we were waiting at the wrong stop and our stop was tucked around the corner. Not only were the bus guides guilty of hiding from the heat and not being there when we alighted the red route bus at a time we most needed to them to tell us where to go but also the guides who operated the shuttle bus were also guilty of hiding from the heat instead of looking out for passengers who were obviously having trouble finding the shuttle bus stop.This all happened on 27/06/19. Having said that the free walk was very good and enjoyed the commentary and company of the amusing guide .The included river cruise was also very good and we decided to go after dark at 10pm cruise which was spectacular at night..
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.
In all printed documents it is shown that • Green Route: Castle/Funicular stop (Clark Adam Square) (and same as for Blue Route) are included. However, when we tried to use it on a green bus, we were told it is not included and only a three day tour includes it.
Furthermore, in exchange for printed vouchers we got back tickets which had no details for the walking tour or a night bus. And that made our usage limited to pretty much a red line bus. Quite a disappointment, sorry.
PS. Hopefully your records show that I have used your services in many countries and cities around the Globe.
Opted for the Big Bus due as I could opt for the 72Hrs ticket - plus had added value not only the hop on hop off bus. on a constructive note if it was slightly more frequent it would have been better. would recommend for coverage
Routs and information in bus was ok.Upper floors of busses are partly covered with not enough transparent film cover.Castle shuttle electrical cars are not the most comfortable way to do castle visit (partly covered with film, backside is open, no heating) during winter time.
Personally, all went well with the bus and thankfully got a seat. However, on the next stop no-one got a seat with lots of people standing which i didn't feel was safe. It was 11ish so possibly the busiest time.
