City Sightseeing Budapest

Your hop-on hop-off bus tour includes more than 25 stops around Hungary’s bustling capital. (Please see the Itinerary below for a complete list of stops.) Your ticket is valid for 24, 48, or 72 hours from first time of use (depending on which option selected at checkout), allowing you to sightsee at your own leisurely pace. Stick in your seat for a view of the bus’s entire loop, or hop off when you want to get out and explore the area. Audio commentary will also be available onboard to provide more information about Budapest’s rich history.

Consider hopping off at Fovam Square to explore the culinary delights of the Great Market Hall, which offers Hungarian produce, meats, spices and cheeses. Shop around from stall to stall (own expense) for some authentic Hungarian paprika spice to bring home or cured local meats to sample for lunch.

Later, you can hop off at the Hungarian Parliament to see the Neo-Gothic architecture up close. If you like, head inside (own expense) to tour the Great Vaulted Hall and the Session Room, and catch a glimpse of the Holy Crown of Hungary.

Buses arrive every 15 minutes to hop on and hop off. The purple route last approximately one hour, while the more comprehensive red route is around a 2-hour loop.

For a romantic view of the city from the water and at night, upgrade your ticket to include a river cruise along the Danube and a night bus tour.

Great, and very safe. The tour takes you around the city on very safe almost car free roads, pavements thats legal in Athens and pedestrian streets. Good pace easy anyone can do it and you get to see all the top sights and get ununderstanding of the city and where everything is. . The guides are very good give good tips for the rest of your stay. We all really enjoyed the morning, great coffee/drink stop all inclusive of the tour. We combine this tour with a walking tour which took us in to the various sights and that worked well.

Your 1st full day of your trip always book the Hop-on Hop-off tour as you get to know and see the City you are visiting. I think it helps you with knowing your way around and the highlights of the city you want to see. I do it every time i visit a city that offers this tour. Brilliant you get head phones rather than a guide with a microphone as you can hear everything about the city you want to know. I stay on the bus all the way around to where i first got on and then decide where i want to get off and start exploring. You get a map with all the stops numbered for you on the map so you can decide what number to get off at. Highly recommend!

Good. 4th city I have done something like this. In summer, there are 4 different routs that you can ride with this one ticket. It was cheap, and cheaper buying it on advance through Viator than it would have been to buy on the bus. In Budapest and in most big tourist cities there are 3 or 4 different companies doing some version of this, with a confusing range of price and route. This particular company, 'City Sightseeing' in Budapest had mostly open top buses, which can be too hot during the peak summer months...or potentially too wet. We paid the little extra for boat ride, which was plenty good, too.
