Budapest’s sights are fairly widely dispersed, so seeing them on foot can be time-consuming. This hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing bus lets you cover them in comfort, with audio commentary to provide background. Hop on or off at any of the stops on two routes when you wish to create your own personal itinerary. Choose from a 24-hour or 48-hour pass, or upgrade to a 48- or 72-hour pass with an included cruise and night tour.
What to Expect
Book your desired option and travel independently to any of the stops along the two routes. Your ticket is valid for your selected duration from when you first board and buses arrive every 15 minutes or so. See the Itinerary for stops.

Settle on the open upper deck or air-conditioned lower deck and don a headset to hear the multilingual audio commentary about the sights. Then, stay aboard to view the landmarks along the full loop, or hop on and off at any of the stops to explore further.

Perhaps alight to peruse the food stalls at Budapest’s Great Market Hall or admire the Parliament's beautiful neo-Gothic architecture. Alternatively, step out to see Heroes Square, view the Szechenyi Baths, stroll on the Margaret Bridge, or delve into other sights.

If you’ve upgraded, enjoy an included daytime or evening Danube River cruise, plus a panoramic city night tour.

Terrible - never came and rude employees

The first bus we waited for never came. We asked a representative, he said he knew it was coming because he had just communicated with them. We waited 30 more minutes. It never came! We decided to walk. Asked for a refund. Told to go...More

Terrible! Belongs in the Third World!

All the hop-on hop-off tours I signed up for in our trip this year to Central and Eastern Europe were terrible. But the one in Budapest is THE WORST EVER! I bought our tickets on-line, weeks in advance of our trip. I had our tickets...More
