We booked this to orientate ourselves at the beginning of our mini break, and to give us some background on Budapest. The tour was great and a very small ‘small group bike tour’ as we were the only two on it, which was great. The pace of the tour and the balance of cycling and stopping to chat about the area etc was perfect and we learnt a lot about Hungary and Budapest from our guide.

Hi We was very surprised to know that top hop on hop off bus are same operator But was not easy to find the station. Finally we understood but in our surprise the dayli ticket was included the boat cruise tooo and that was too very good and interesting. We recommend this hop on hop off buss it was not the first time and all the time we enjoy that.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and tailored our visit to our must see sites. This was a fabulous taster of things to see in Budapest and an unique of seeing these.

Wonderful experience, we were priviliged to see a lot of the biggest attractions. The tour guide was great.

Great way to reach the main tourism sites of the city
