Great way to see the city!

, Jun 2018

The only way to do Buda and Pest. Your ticket is valid for 2 days and along with all the stops it includes a 1 hour boat ride on the Danube with great water views of the Parliament and other historic structures. Some must do stops are Heroes square, Great central market and the New York cafe located in the Bulgari hotel.

This tour was amazing!

, Nov 2017

great way to see the city. Boat ride was as little crowded may look at other options

, Oct 2017

Adequate. Would have liked some more history like other cities have had.

Rude rude young women on Hop and Go buses who sell the tickets. The worst was a young women on Sept 2, 1017 on bus with license plate of PEL-909 at 12:35 p.m at Stop 10 refused to tell customers the number of each stop - we were standing, unable to hear or see because of rain - her microphone was not working - people were asking over and over for the number of the stop - and she just sat in her seat texting and listening to music - saying that her microphone didn't work. People were shouting from the back of the bus begging to be told the stop. Yet she refused. She was the worst - but others were also rude and unhelpful. They should not be hired if they hate their jobs and take it out on tourists who count on them. It gives people a bad impression of Budapest. I have never experience such rudeness and utter disregard for people asking for help.

The availability of buses was very good and provided a good service, all staff we engaged with were very helpful

, Oct 2017

A person would needs 2 days at least to do this tour. If you only have a few hours the breaks and changing buses takes up too much of your time. Late in the day you might be a long way from where you need to be at your starting point bus will let you on board or give you information. More logistical organization would help the travelers.

Very good value for money, really enjoyed it

Good value for money, especially when boat ride and bikes are included in price. Just prepare to wait for busses that are infrequent.
