We bought our tickets on Saturday in station 18 red line, I don't know the name of the station but it's near the... More

I would certainly use a the Hop on Hop off bus for future city breaks. It was a fun and informative way to explore the city. Bus busy but fairly regular. Some broken headsets, although I noticed staff giving out new ones to passengers. One of the bus drivers pulled away sharply before I was seated which resulted in a... More

The staff is great we rode on several different busses in 2 days and every staff person was friendly and helpful. There is room to improve, the headsets should not be shared, we brought our own the plugs are universal. The busses need updated upholstery and cleaning. We had typically close to 30 minutes wait at most stops and ended... More

The bus tour is a great way to see the city. Guides helpful but annoying sales pitches for restaurants. The commentary was good but some of the units not working. The evening cruise on the river was great.

We had the 48 hour ticket which included a night tour and boat tour. It also included a walking tour which we did not get time to use. We made good use of the bus routes both to see the sights and to get from one area to another if we decided not to walk.

We used this service over 2 days, which is 48 hours from start of ticket. The service was reliable and covered the areas of interest. We did however find the yellow route a bit monotonous as it appears to double back on its self, we think this route could be improved, it looked as if it had been stretched out... More

"Giraffe" does not get enough stress. There is another company which has a similar look. The company runs two main routes plus a boat trip. There are recordings in numerous languages. The English recording was excellent and they kept it well-keyed to the location. The Yellow Route includes several locations on the Buda side where there are excellent views. It... More

Okay I admit without the headphones the tour was great. But when I placed on the headphones and heard the irritating violin music I was turned off and actually felt a little angry and pissed off. Please change the music. Thank you.

Dear Yahwehnam, Thank you for your comment and rating. We are sorry to hear that you were unsatisfied with the music from your headphone. We try to make the music of hungarian composers known among the tourist visiting our country. Despite the music we are glad to hear that the service was good and we hope you enjoyed the city...
