Full description
Spend 2 full days exploring Buda and Pest: 2 towns so beautiful, they put them together! Budapest is the “Paris of the East," a magnificent city that presides regally over both sides of the mighty Danube, and you can see it all on this 48-hour hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour. With this ticket, you get access to the city’s sightseeing route on the lively hop-on and hop-off buses, some of which are open-top, for a full 48 hours. Access the green route and discover the Opera House, New York Palace, and Castle District. Live guides give commentary in English, while a computerized headset offers information in 16 different languages. The open-top buses are a perfect way to see the city in the sunshine, and come equipped with straw hats to use. In the event of unexpected rain, the buses will also provide you with raincoats. Meanwhile, closed buses have panoramic windows so you will never miss a sight. You can hop between the routes as you wish, and take the river cruise according to your own schedule within the 48-hour period.

    The overall experience was nice. The red route is worthwhile but the yellow one certainly needs to be improved. Another comment: it was not clearly stated that the night bus tour was not included in the price. We thought that since we had bought the 48 hours ticket it would have been included. And we were never informed that the beer and the goulash dish were supposed to be offered in another place and not on board. So , try to be more specific in order to avoid misunderstandings

    A very convenient way to explore the city. But it does not give the maximum rating because there were a few minor organizational imperfections, e.g. we did not get tickets for the ship and there was a slight confusion to enter it on the basis of our voucher, secondly there was stew and beer included in the purchase price and we only got a purchase for a small pancake in Nika restaurant

    Good ride

    It should have application for real time bus location of buses and to locate bus stops. Secondly there should be mobile charging points. We were asked to get print from their main office, which is cumbersome. Tickets should be given in bus it self as done other bus services. Your ticket given for Vienna in big bus was very good
