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.

Don’t do it.

The Bus portion of the trip was a horror standing room only. Despite the signs the lack of supervision allowed people to stand. The Bus was filthy and the audio machines did not work. The Boat was worse ten loud guys drinking and talking the...More

Complete waste of money!

This was the first time we ever took hop-on hop-off bus and probably the last. Budapest has two of these companies, without knowing we took the one without giraffe, but they are probably the same. The main reason we took it is because Budapest is...More
