What people are saying about Budapest
Great package! The hop-on hop-off bus stops at all major attractions. The language is better with the Big Bus (brown ones) than with the red ones (here it is a bit fast in German). For the boat trip you should be there 15-20 minutes in advance to get a seat. The city tour was interesting. But it's on a donation basis, so it's not included in the price.
Beautiful experience as a couple with my husband in a small group of 8 people. Congratulations then to our driver as well as guide Balazs really very nice, prepared and available for every need. A myth! Day Tour to try absolutely.
Beautiful city and really deserves several days but if you only have one day, we’ll worth the drive. Guide was a little too chatty and went off on random tangents but still provided good insights and history on the city.
Fantastic value for money and the view for New Year’s Eve was unbelievable. We’ll organised and good music
This was an amazing time experience and I 100 percent recommend
