Fantastic way to see all the sights around Budapest with the minimum of wear and tear on the feet. Between the 2 routes, you can see pretty much everything, and the boat trip was the icing on the cake. Brilliant value as well

We used the Hop On Hop Off bus while we were in Budapest in June. It was a great way to see the city. There were many stops where we could get on or off the bus. We purchased our tickets online before we arrived in Budapest which was also very convenient.

I hadn't realized there were so many different bus lines. Once we got it, it was great

We did both boat tours. The shorter one in the evening, after dark - breath taking! The longer one in the day and took advantage of the stop on Margaret Island. Both well worth it - beautiful and informative. We like the longer routes of the hop on hop off bus - the ones that go out of the city core - you get to see stuff you can't see on foot. Right in the centre of the city - the bus is stuck in traffic all the time - better to see that stuff on the walking tours. The staff of this company was all very friendly and helpful.
